Govt to Move More Urgently on Finance Campaign Reform

8

Campaign finance reform may be moving up on the government’s agenda following the threat of the Private Sector Organization of Jamaica to withhold campaign donations until the regulations are in place.

Justice Minister, Delroy Chuck, told Nationwide News today that Prime Minister Andrew Holness may decide to move with more urgency on the matter.

Mr. Chuck had said yesterday that the matter wasn’t a priority of the government at this time.

However, he says the regulations could be ready in a matter of weeks.
