The President of the young professional affiliate of the JLP, G2K, Matthew Samuda, says Prime Minister Simpson Miller would be disenfranchising thousands of young people if she calls a general election on the old voters list.

The most recent voter registration window closed on September 30.

Persons who registered ahead of the deadline would see their names added to the new voters list, set to be published on November 30 by the Electoral Office of Jamaica, ECJ.

Mr. Samuda says it appears as if the election will be called before the publication of that new list.

Mr. Samuda says he hopes that civil society and the private sector use their influence to encourage the Prime Minister to do what he believes is the right thing.
