#JLP80th: Former PNP Councillor Venesha Phillips joins JLP member
The Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) has introduced Venesha Phillips, former People’s National Party (PNP) councillor for the Papine Division, as a new member of the governing party.
The announcement was made a short while ago at the JLP Conference being held at the National Arena.
The firebrand has been at odds with key factions of the PNP leading up to and after a tumultuous leadership change last year. Phillips had fallen out of favour with the PNP some months ago and has been a harsh critic of President Mark Golding in particular.
