JLP Deputy Leader Rejects ‘Corrupt Administration’ Label


JLP Deputy Leader, James Robertson, says he isn’t concerned about the perception in the public domain that the JLP-administration is corrupt.

Mr. Robertson is also the longstanding Member of Parliament for West St. Thomas. He was responding to a question by Nationwide’s Cliff Hughes during an outside broadcast in the parish to officially open the upgraded Font Hill Water Supply System.

His response comes on the back of the massive Petrojam scandal, the news of corruption engulfing an institution under the Education Ministry and the consequential sacking of its portfolio Minister, Ruel Reid.

Mr. Robertson while not wanting to preempt the Prime Minister says he already sees a number of potential candidates who could be appointed to the Education Ministry.

Meanwhile, Mr. Robertson also reacted to the resignation of Mr. Reid. He says politicians have a responsibility to step down if they’re unable to clear their name immediately.
