G2K Calls for 4 Cabinet Ministers to be Sacked

81

There’s a call coming this afternoon for Prime Minister and PNP President Portia Simpson Miller to sack four of her Cabinet Ministers for under-performance.

Newly installed Generation 2000, G2K President, Matthew Samuda, says the Prime Minister should forget the politics of loyalty and shuffle her cabinet.

Mr. Samuda was addressing a media briefing at the JLP’s Belmont Road Headquarters this afternoon.

The President of the Labour party’s affiliate group said Prime Minister Simpson Miller must recognize that several under performing members of her executive and her own inaction have tainted her legacy.

He says the Simpson Miller administration has brought governance in Jamaica into disrepute.

Mr. Samuda says Environment Minister, Robert Pickersgill and Local Government Minister, Noel Arscott should be the first to go.

The G2K President also took aim at Health Minister, Dr. Fenton Ferguson.

Mr. Samuda also questioned the performance of Youth Minister, Lisa Hanna.
