Opposition Spokesman on Finance and Planning, Julian Robinson, has tabled a raft of questions to Prime Minister Andrew Holness regarding the expenditure on the just concluded race for Commonwealth Secretary General.
Mr. Robinson tabled the questions in the House of Representatives yesterday.
The Opposition Spokesman wants the Prime Minister to tell the country the total cost of the campaign, the cost of airfare and accommodation and the cost of marketing, communications and public relations for the campaign.
Mr. Robinson also wants to know who engaged Finn Partners to provide public relations services, the duration of the contract, the amounts paid to the company and the source of those funds.
Mr. Robinson also asked whether the government of Jamaica received any financial or other support from any other other government or non-Jamaican entity in relation to the campaign.
Prime Minister Holness is also being asked to indicate how many persons from Jamaica travelled to Rwanda at taxpayers’ expense and the total cost of Jamaica’s participation in the Heads of Government meeting.
The Prime Minister has 21 days to provide the answers.
Foreign affairs Minister, Kamina Johnson Smith, narrowly lost in her bid to replace incumbent Secretary General, Baroness Patricia Scotland.
The final vote was 27-24.
