PM says while citizens have right to protest, demonstrations over poor road conditions not prudent at this time
Prime Minister Andrew Holness has pointed out that while citizens have a right to protest, demonstrations over poor road conditions are not prudent at this time.
He was referring to recent protests by taxi operators in Westmoreland which resulted in disruption to businesses and schools.
Speaking at the official opening ceremony for the May Pen to Williamsfield leg of Highway 2000 yesterday (September 14) Mr. Holness said demonstrations cannot be done at the expense of people’s livelihood.
Pointing to his administration’s comprehensive plan to rehabilitate the nation’s roadways, Mr. Holness said protests over poor road conditions are not necessary.
