Phillips Denies That He’s Dismissing Debate On Assessing the PNP


Peoples National Party, PNP, President, Dr. Peter Phillips is denying claims that the party’s leadership has been dismissive of conversations that seek to internally assess the party.

Dr. Phillips spoke briefly with Nationwide’s Tauna Thomas yesterday morning after a forum at the Pegasus Hotel in New Kingston.

The accusation was made last week by PNP Member of Parliament for North West St. Ann, Dr. Dayton Campbell, as the internal leadership challenge against Dr. Phillips intensifies.

Dr. Campbell, who is supporting presidential aspirant, Peter Bunting, said the leadership of the party wasn’t giving people an opportunity to speak.

A similar claim was also made by Councillor for the Papine Division, Venesha Phillips, who said frank, internal discussions on the party’s poor performance have not happened.

In 2018, Tauna won the UNICEF Media Award for Excellence in Reporting on Children’s Rights. She graduated from CARIMAC in 2015 and joined NNN in 2016. Since then, she’s covered several high-profile court cases including the X6 murder trial, the police death squad trial and is currently covering the Uchence Wilson Gang trial. Thomas is the Producer of Talking History heard on Nationwide Radio every Saturday.

    Dr Peter Phillips and Mr Peter Bunting should be placed before the deligates on a debate stage to speak to them how they will lead the party, time to end the division and hold hands together and the best person win and lead the party.
    I am so proud of Mrs. Angella Burke Brown who said she will ask her constituency as to who to support I welcome this is what we need in Jamaica politics, get the people involve. Congrats Angella.
