MONTEGO BAY, St James — Leader of the Opposition Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) Andrew Holness says the challenge for the leadership post by Audley Shaw could finally end "the bitter divide that exists in the party".
"Let us, once and for all, use this exercise to settle the petty differences that have divided the party. Let us use this exercise as a means of healing the party," Holness told delegates and supporters at a meeting at Montego Bay High School for Girls Sunday night.
"Let us, once and for all, settle this argument of who should lead the Jamaica Labour Party. Let us, once and for all, allow the leader of the Jamaica Labour Party to put in place the plans and programmes that can build the party without having the party pulling one side so, and another side of the party pulling so," he added.
He noted that for a long time the argument has been bandied around "that the leader was not elected" and "everything the leader do, there is somebody there to undermine".
He said both himself and Shaw will sign a code of conduct to avoid a smear campaign leading up to the election.
"That code of conduct is binding on us. So, Labourites, I want to assure you that there is nothing to worry about. I am confident that we have the capacity and the organisation in the party to carry out this election in an exemplary way, that at the end of the day, it is the Jamaica Labour Party that wins. And we not going to do the ray-ray and the noise. We are going to focus on the organisation," stressed Holness.
There was a strong show of support for Holness at Sunday's meeting. Among those present were members of parliament JC Hutchinson and Shahine Robinson, former mayor of Montego Bay Charles Sinclair, and caretaker for Central St James Heroy Clarke.
