Simpson-Miller Confident Of Victory

Uncategorized February 25, 2016

People’s National Party (PNP) President, Prime Minister Portia Simpson — Miller, has expressed confidence that she will remain in the top job when the votes are counted later this evening.

After casting her vote at the Whitfield Town All Age School in her South West St Andrew constituency a short while ago, Simpson-Miller told members of the media that she will not say how many seats she is going to win, but noted that she is assured of victory. “Do I look like a loser? What sort of question is that?” Simpson- Miller quipped as journalists asked whether she would stay on as PNP President should she lose the election. “I know how many seats I am going to win, but I know the PNP will remain in power after this election,” added Simpson-Miller.

The PNP President said after voting she is heading to her constituency office as she doesn’t see the need to prop up any PNP candidate who might be in a fight. In a plea to her supporters and Jamaicans in general, the Prime Minister begged for a peaceful election arguing that there is no need for intimidation or violence as people cast their votes. “I want no intimidation. I want no trouble. I want everybody to go out and cast their vote in peace,” said Simpson — Miller. She said her next address to the media will come later after the PNP’s victory. With a massive crowd shouting ‘Portia! Portia!’, the PNP President  left the Whitfield Town All Age School just minutes ago. Meanwhile, heavy voting is continuing at the polling station, which has several polling divisions.
