Over ten years after leaving representational politics, former Member of Parliament for North Eastern St Elizabeth, Raymond Pryce, is now speaking out about the circumstances under which he left the representational political arena.

He says contrary to a belief expressed by many Jamaicans, he did not walk away from representing the people of the constituency.

In an interview with Nationwide News, Mr. Pryce explained the internal actions leading to his exit.

The former MP also rebuffed any claims that his time in the seat bore little fruit, which might have led to his removal.

Mr Pryce was also adamant that naysayers commenting on his tenure in parliament lacking any meaningful contribution were simply being dishonest.

He explained his political representation journey after his tenure in St Elizabeth, stating he was called upon especially in times of the PNP being in somewhat of a crisis.
