The Prime Minister and JLP Leader arrived at the Mona High School Polling Station in Eastern St. Andrew just before 11:00 this morning.

He was accompanied by his wife and JLP candidate for East Rural St. Andrew, Juliet Holness, who also votes in Eastern St. Andrew.

Mr. and Mrs Holness were greeted outside of the polling station by Fayval Williams who’s seeking a second term as MP for Eastern St. Andrew.

The Prime Minister and JLP Leader says his party has put forward good plans for Jamaicans with adequate opportunity for their betterment while at the same time maintaining fiscal discipline.

Mr. Holness was asked if he’s satisfied that now was the ideal time for an election to take place.

The Prime Minister told the media outside the Mona High polling station that it’s important for the JLP-administration to seek a new mandate at this time.

After casting his ballot, Mr. Holness went to his West Central St. Andrew constituency, where he’s seeking a sixth term as MP.

His opponent in that constituency is the PNP’s, Patrick Roberts.
