‘We don’t need to get the IMF money to buy elections’, Portia chides Shaw
ST CATHERINE, Jamaica — Prime Minister and People’s National Party President Portia Simpson Miller chided Opposition spokesman on finance Audley Shaw for his suggestion that the International Monetary Fund’s decision to lower the primary surplus target could be used for election campaigning.
Simpson Miller, speaking to supporters at a mass rally on Sunday in Independence City in Portmore, insisted that no administration she leads supports dishonesty.
Simpson Miller said her Government ministers are honourable and that she trusts the integrity of all her ministers.
“We don’t need to get the IMF money to buy elections… it must be spent on the people of this country,” Simpson Miller said.
She said it was ironic that Shaw would suggest this as “he suffers from credibility deficit”.
