KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) A special sitting of Parliament was held Tuesday to honour former Prime Minister Edward Seaga.
Seaga attended the Tuesday session of tributes at Gordon House, the home of Jamaica's legislature. The 82-year-old, who gave a presentation, still regularly appears at public events.
The accolades to Seaga are part of Jamaica's celebrations of its 50th anniversary of independence from Britain. The government says he was recognised for his role in creating Jamaica's post-independence landscape.
Seaga was prime minister from 1980 until 1989.
He was Jamaica's longest serving Member of Parliament, representing the gritty West Kingston constituency from 1962 until his 2005 retirement.
