Golding Dismisses Campbell’s Criticism of PJ’s Endorsement


PNP Aspirant for South St. Andrew, Senator Mark Golding says his opponent in the contest for the seat, Colin Campbell, is guilty of over reacting to an endorsement of him, Golding, by former Prime Minister PJ Patterson.

Mr. Campbell reacted to Mr. Patterson’s endorsement of Golding by lodging a complaint with PNP General Secretary, Paul Burke.

Campbell accused Patterson of unwarranted interference and an inappropriate attempt to meddle in the democratic process. But Senator Golding says Mr. Campbell was out of line in his criticism of Mr. Patterson.
