Prime Minister Andrew Holness is making a plea for more regulation and definition of what he calls the ‘political space’ to address the nation’s governance problem.

He was reacting to a controversial Auditor-General Report on alleged breaches at the Caribbean Maritime University, CMU.

Prime Minister Holness says the governance issue expands beyond any one political party.

He’s also blasting the Opposition People’s National Party, PNP, for calling for a Crime Plan from the government.

Mr. Holness maintains that he’ll allow the nation’s budget to be read before declaring general elections.

But he’s urging supporters to get ready.  

In the meantime, Mr. Holness is pleading with party supporters to temper their financial expectations of their political representatives.

He says with regulations about political and campaign financing, political representatives can be found in breach.

And he’s also urging supporters to conduct themselves in a disciplined manner during the upcoming election campaign.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness, he was speaking at a Jamaica Labour Party Area Council One meeting at the Justice Ministry’s Tower Hill Restorative Justice Centre, in West Central St Andrew, yesterday.
