PNP Campaign Co-Director, Phillip Paulwell, publicly conceded last night’s election on behalf of PNP president, Dr. Peter Phillips.
He says Dr. Phillips called Prime Minister Andrew Holness to commend him on the victory.
Mr Paulwell also congratulated the JLP for a resounding victory and the clear mandate won.
After a night of political carnage for the PNP, Mr. Paulwell says the people have spoken.
Mr. Paulwell says the PNP has to acknowledge that the people will not support a party that is perceived as lacking in unity.
He says all members of the party must shoulder the responsibility of this election defeat.
