Jamaica Gleaner - - IN FO­CUS -

PNP, who will make up the large bulk of Mon­day’s vote, may just de­cide among them­selves to give the JLP ad­di­tional power at the mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tion level, as it looks the bet­ter of the two par­ties in sim­ple readi­ness to govern.

The prime min­is­ter has not, so far, made any fool­ish state­ments as he did on the cam­paign trail for the gen­eral elec­tion by promis­ing that crime would be much less of a con­cern when his party took power. More dis­cern­ing vot­ers may take the broad view that a protest vote in the PNP’s favour will still not give the PNP power to al­ter any­thing of sig­nif­i­cance.

The JLP should ben­e­fit from that. And from Por­tia, too.
