PNP’s Portia Simpson led, 2016 Spokesperson Council

The Expected or Unexpected, PNP’s Portia Simpson Miller assigns Spokesperson Council after losing 2016 Jamaica Election

What will the future hold for our political landscape?

Will there be new faces in high places? Or will it be same old, same old?

Well, Jamaicans are intrigued to see how the PNP rallies, from its 2016 election loss and whether they will listen to the ‘articulate minority’.

Many surmise that the leader of the Peoples’ National Party, is obstinate. The ‘mud slinging’ is rife with colorful names, for the PNP president, which I will not repeat here. Jamaicans on every side were ‘up in arms’, when the PNP decided to bow out of the National Debate.

So, will the PNP Executive take time out to analyse, synthesize and exercise some changes?

Who will go and who will stay?
