Young Jamaica, the youth arm of the Jamaica Labour Party, JLP, is renewing calls for President of the People’s National Party, Mark Golding, and Leader of Opposition Business in the Senate, Peter Bunting, to resign their posts.
In a statement, Young Jamaica accused the PNP of ‘persistent use of theatrics, propaganda and misinformation’ and ‘blatant politicking’.
The JLP youth arm says the PNP continues to fail Jamaicans in need of quality opposition to provide constructive counters to government policy.
The latest calls from Young Jamaica come after two recent incidents.
Pointing to the march and protest in New Kingston calling for health minister, Dr Christopher Tufton’s sacking, Young Jamaica accused the PNP of being ‘crude and inauthentic’.
The march was led by opposition leader, Mark Golding, and the party’s spokesperson on finance, Julian Robinson.
Young Jamaica criticised the use of fake baby dolls as a ploy to gain political relevance while claiming the JLP has improved healthcare.
Meanwhile, the JLP group accused Senator Bunting of attacking the professionalism of the Jamaica Constabulary Force and the Jamaica Defence Force.
Young Jamaica is critical of Senator Bunting’s opposition to the recently declared states of emergency.
Speaking with our news centre Senator Bunting says the Holness-administration and ‘to an extent’ supported by the heads of the security forces is propagating a ‘big lie’ that the states of emergency are needed to deal with flare-ups of crime.
Young Jamaica says that statement undermines the credibility of the institutional security apparatus.
