Phillips tells crowd to “get ready”

Supporters of the ruling People’s National Party (PNP) were given the clearest indication that a general election could be called before the end of the year.

Addressing party supporters at a recent constituency conference in the eastern parish of St. Mary, Finance Minister Dr. Peter Phillips told the crowd to “get ready.”

“September will mark the fourth year since the last general election. I would say to anyone with a lamp, put a little oil in your lamp. Get yourselves ready…For Comrade Portia Simpson Miller to call the trumpet once again.” He said.

A general election is constitutionally due by December 2016. The PNP has 46 seats in Parliament to the main opposition Jamaica Labour Party’s 21.
