The President of G2K, Matthew Samuda is accusing Local Government Minister, Noel Arscott, of misleading the country regarding the reasons behind the decision to postpone the Local Government elections.

Minister Arscott recently told parliament that the postponement was due to the tardiness of the local government reform process.

HE also said that the decision was due to the unavailability of funding to allow the Electoral Office of Jamaica to conduct the elections.

But Chairman of the PNP’s Region Three, Phillip Paulwell, has since suggested that the Government has delayed the election until it’s in a position to win over the electorate.

Mr. Samuda says the conflicting messages from the PNP has widened an already expansive trust deficit between the Government and the people.
