JAMAICA'S Opposition Leader Andrew Holness yesterday extended condolences to Prime Ministers Dr Kenny Anthony of St Lucia and Dr Ralph Gonsalves of St Vincent and the Grenadines — the two nations mostly affected by heavy flooding on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Holness, in extending condolences, acknowledged the challenges both nations now face, given the damage to infrastructure and essential services, in particular water and power, both critically indispensable at this time.

"... While we are not in a position to offer technical assistance, we want for you to understand that we sympathise with you, especially in light of this occurrence within time dedicated to family festivities," Holness said in messages to both prime ministers, on behalf of the Opposition Jamaica Labour Party.

He also offered best wishes for a swift recovery and re-engagement of full services in both St Lucia and St Vincent.
