JLP Chairman, Robert Montague, says he’s instructed that the governing party get ready should Prime Minister Andrew Holness decide to call general elections following the conclusion of the upcoming by-election in East Portland.

Mr. Montague was addressing a JLP Area Council 2 meeting in Port Antonio yesterday. Mr. Montague was among a number of JLP heavyweights who turned up in Port Antonio to endorse Annmarie Vaz’s candidacy in East Portland.

The JLP Chairman told the meeting that he’s issued a directive to his party.

In the meantime, Mr. Montague also told the meeting that he’s pleased the PNP appears to have snubbed Andrea Moore as their candidate for East Portland.
