I take sides with Andrew Holness and Audley Shaw on the call for the resignation of Dr Herbert Thompson from the Electoral Commission of Jamaica (ECJ).
He has taken the first step to resign as chairman; however, he should resign from the ECJ.
The officers of the ECJ should not show any tinge of partisanship and should not be in any situation that would cause ambiguity or doubt, calling into question their fairness and objectivity.
Dr Thompson suffered a great lapse in judgement, and it is now too late for any explaining. It just does not pass the sniff test.
For some strange reason, I believe that he accepted the award on behalf of the ECJ. For who in their right mind -- with any honour - would want an award from either the PNP or JLP?
One thing is sure, if it wasn't the PNP doing this the JLP would be doing something similar. The JLPNP politicians are void of any moral code and are used to doing whatever pleases them, whenever it pleases them.
The people will continue to suffer under these two parties unless civil society and interest groups apply pressure and demand that they follow established codes of conduct.
