Daphne Holmes Lashes Burke


The former Mayor of Black River, the PNP’s Daphne Holmes, says many angry comrades in North East St. Elizabeth will stay home on election day in protest against the removal of Raymond Pryce as the party’s candidate in the constituency.

This amid the fallout from the resignation of Raymond Pryce as a PNP Deputy General Secretary.

Ms. Holmes is accusing PNP General Secretary, Paul Burke of destroying the party secretariat.

She says comrades in North East St. Elizabeth are disappointed with the leadership of PNP President, Portia Simpson Miller.

But she says the comrades still love her despite the party’s treatment of Mr. Pryce.

However the former Black River Mayor is lashing out at Paul Burke.
