Political Commentators Weigh In On Political Row In PNP Over Reappointment Of Campbell To Shadow Cabinet


It’s a bad way to start the election year!

That’s how political commentator, Jaevion Nelson is referencing reports suggesting that senior ranking members of the Opposition PNP including the party’s Vice President, Damion Crawford are displeased about the re-appointment of Dr Dayton Campbell to the shadow cabinet.

Yesterday news emerged suggesting that Mr Crawford had threatened to resign from the shadow cabinet following Dr Campbell’s appointment as Special Projects spokesman.

Mr Nelson says it doesn’t speak well to the party’s readiness in what could be an election year.

He also says those expressing displeasure must realize that it’s not just about them at this point.

And Political Analyst and Trade Unionist, Helene Davis-Whyte agrees that the optics may work against the party.

She says Dr Phillips needs to act to reunite the party following last year’s fierce presidential challenge.

Meantime, Political Analyst, Nadeen Spence is of the view that the newly-crafted shadow cabinet post held by Dr Dayton Campbell is not convincing.

Dr Campbell now has responsibility for Special Projects.

Ms Spence is struggling to come to terms with what the post is all about.

She suggesting the party hasn’t been honest about the real reason for Dr Campbell’s re-appointment.

But Ms Spence says the party needs to address some of the issues it’s been facing.

    What is wrong with these people who are termed political analyst who are always trying to create some form of make belief about issues that are not based on facts but on their own political “make belief” and biases.. guess they are always, for some reason given a platform and they know where their “make belief” bias should be.
