Golding commended for authentic speech that resonated with Jamaicans, at party’s annual conference

People’s National Party (PNP) Leader Mark Golding has been commended by two political commentators for presenting an authentic speech that resonated with Jamaicans, at the party’s annual conference yesterday (September 17).

Mr. Golding spoke on topics such as constitutional reform, crime, education, and tourism.

He outlined ambitious plans for the country, to include increasing the income tax threshold to $3 million, making solar panels more affordable for regular Jamaicans and changing Jamaica’s tourism model, to ensure greater benefits for the island.

Reacting to the Opposition Leader’s speech, political analyst Linton Gordon said he addressed critical matters that are on the minds of Jamaicans.

Meanwhile, political commentator Kevin O’Brien Chang noted that Mr. Golding lived up to the expectations of his supporters.

He said while most of the plans announced by Mr. Golding will be welcomed, the Opposition Leader’s stance on the constitutional reform process could be controversial.
