PM says Jamaican people and the improvement of their lives, remain priority of JLP, as party celebrates 80 years
The Jamaican people and the improvement of their lives, remain the priority of the ruling Jamaica Labour Party (JLP).
That’s according to Prime Minister Andrew Holness, as he celebrates the 80th anniversary of the JLP.
In a social media post this morning (July 8), Mr. Holness noted that his party, when formed in 1943, aimed to work for the improvement of the social, economic, educational and political improvement and development of the condition of small taxpayers, workers, and the general masses.
This aim, he explained, remains relevant today.
Mr Holness said at 80 years old, the JLP is proud that despite the hardships of recent years, it has steered Jamaica with steady hands.
He said having nurtured the foundation, the JLP is in a position to make meaningful changes in the country.
Meantime, Party Chairman Robert Montague has described the JLP as a transformational organization.
Mr. Montague was speaking during an anniversary church service in Portmore, St Catherine, now underway.
