JLP supporters bat for PNP’s Crawford, Pryce

News post March 10, 2016

 KINGSTON, Jamaica — Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) supporters currently gathered outside Gordon House in Kingston for the resumption of Parliament say that the People’s National Party (PNP) does not stand a chance of returning to power unless Damion Crawford and Raymond Pryce are in the mix.

According to the supporters, Opposition leader Portia Simpson Miller should resign and hand over the reins of the party to a young person who commands the respect of every Jamaican.

“Damion Crawford a de best chance dem have,” JLP supporter Bryan told OBSERVER ONLINE as he sat inside his wheelchair.

“I am telling you that for the PNP to have a chance they have to change their leader and change it to someone like Crawford who every Jamaican can depend on,” the green-clad supporter said. “If dem nuh draw back fi him, dem ago have a long time in the (Opposition)camp,” he continued.“And Raymond Pryce,” a lady chimed in, echoing the feeling of many other supporters around her. “Pryce talk the truth. Pryce talk straight!” she expressed. Bryan, who was in agreement, added : “a Crawford and Pryce mek dem lose the election but I am glad for that mistake”. According to him, the time has come for the younger generation to lead the country. Crawford and Pryce, who were frontrunners in the 2011 General Elections, were recently pushed to the backbench as they were replaced as standard bearers for the constituencies they represented. Crawford, the former Member of Parliament for the St Andrew East Rural constituency, was replaced by Imani Duncan Pryce who lost the seat to Juliet Holness, wife of Prime Minister Andrew Holness in the Feruary 25 General Election. Pryce, on the other hand, was MP in the St Elizabeth North East constituency and after a bitter battle followed by his removal as PNP’s deputy general secretary, was replaced by businessman Evon Redman. Redman retained the seat.
