Member of Parliament for South West St. Catherine, Everald Warmington, says envy is at the heart of the recent criticism of Prime Minister Andrew Holness by opposition senator, Peter Bunting.

Mr. Bunting was quoted in the media earlier this week describing the prime minister as a self-serving coward.

This after Mr. Holness declared no Jamaican prime minister or Leader of the Opposition should be a dual citizen. This in light of confirmation from Opposition Leader Mark Golding that he is indeed a dual Jamaican/British citizen.

According to Mr. Warmington, Senator Bunting regards himself too highly.

Mr. Warmington says Senator Bunting is attempting to divert attention away from the serious questions surrounding Mark Golding’s status as a dual citizen.
