DAY one of the Jamaica Labour Party's  three day islandwide tour rolled out a short while ago - nearly two hours after the scheduled start time.

A large contingent of police were among the bus loads of supporters who were waiting at the Olympic Gardens Civil Centre in Prime Minister Andrew Holness West Central constituency for the start of the tour.

The tour is being led by Holness who will take the labourites across the island in three days.

Several other bus load of supporters are expected to join the motorcade which is now travelling along Spanish Town enroute to Harbour View where the Prime Minister is slated to make a brief stop.

The tour is expected to travel through St Thomas, Portland and St Mary before culminating with a mass meeting in Annotto Bay later tonight.

The motorcade will move on to Western Jamaica tomorrow before heading along the south coast into St Elizabeth, Manchester, Clarendon and St Catherine on Friday.
