Opposition leader reiterates commitment to working with Gov’t on addressing crime but claims Gov’t is not playing its part

Opposition Leader, Mark Golding says the People’s National Party is committed to working with the Government to achieve consensus on addressing crime, however, the Government is not playing its part.


Last week, Prime Minister, Andrew Holness said there is a need for political consensus to address the violence plaguing society.


He acknowledged that the Government and Opposition have not reached what he called genuine consensus on how to tackle crime.


Speaking at the St. Andrew East Central Divisional Conference held on Sunday (August 14), Mr. Golding said the Opposition is willing to work with the Government on the issue, but has been calling for collaboration to no avail.

He said the Opposition remains willing to establish a partnership to deal with the issue.
