Both candidates in the PNP leadership race intensified campaign activity on the weekend with just less than three weeks to go before September 7 which is decision day.

Dr. Peter Phillips attended the East Rural St. Andrew constituency on Sunday.

In that constituency, former JLP fire-brand and current PNP candidate, Joan Gordon Webley, is attempting to unseat the incumbent Member of Parliament and JLP-powerhouse, Juliet Holness.

The embattled PNP President who’s facing a challenge from Peter Bunting told comrades that he remains focused and capable of leading the PNP back to office.

He argued that the JLP administration is failing to protect the people including coffee farmers in East Rural St. Andrew.
