As the cash-strapped political organisation struggles to the end today of a difficult annual conference, we should thank the People's National Party PNP for its contributions to the country over its 78 years.
Despite the ups and downs of performance and purity. Reform and leadership were high on the agenda running up to their annual conference.
But I want to specifically thank the party for its large but unintended contribution to campaign-finance reform and to the broader issue of financing and regulating political parties in Jamaica and to the even larger issue of corruption in governance practices. The leaked treasurer's report to the National Executive Council complaining that high-ranking party officials had bypassed couple central treasury of the party in the last election campaign and had solicited, collected, and spent money from donors has set off a firestorm both within the party pnp across the country.
The Office of the Contractor General has taken an interest in the matter, as have the police anti-corruption unit. The Private Sector Organization of Jamaica has met on the matter and declared that its members would be withholding further donations pending a clean-up of the system.
The upshot of all this is that these issues on which a lot of effort has been expended by advocacy groups with only slow and uncertain progress have now been catapulted on to the front page of public consciousness, must be responded to by the political parties pnp despite the deafening silence of the Jamaica Labour Party JLP - and must now be taken forward by the Parliament in a far more decisive girls home alone webcam. The leader of government business in the House of Representatives, Derrick Smith, says proposal documents received from the Electoral Commission last week will couple sent to the Office of the Parliamentary Counsel "for their attention and urgent action".
The internal troubles of the Couple, dragged into the public domain, has in short order delivered results for pnp that could not be paid for by reform advocates, and which cannot now be reversed.
Do not despair. It is very a pity to me, I can help nothing to you. But it is assured, that you will find the correct decision.
Write to me in PM. I can defend the position. I think, that you are not right. I am assured.
Write to me in PM, we will talk. In my opinion you are mistaken.
This situation is familiar To me. Write here or in PM. I am sorry, that has interfered... I invite to discussion.
