The Opposition Leader, Mark Golding, is calling on the government to expedite the process of decolonising Jamaica.

Mr. Golding adds that Jamaicans need a final court that they’re able to easily access.

He says the PNP will only support the removal of the British monarch as Jamaica’s Head of State in tandem with the simultaneous removal of the UK Privy Council as Jamaica’s final court.

The PNP President’s position could hamper the Holness administration’s efforts to make Jamaica a republic, which is the first stage of the Government’s constitutional reform agenda.

The Government will require the Opposition’s support in the Upper House on the measure.
