Put The Caribbean Court Of Justice On The 2016 Ballot

Posted by on Feb 3, 2016 in Press Releases | Comments Off on Put The Caribbean Court Of Justice On The 2016 Ballot

The National Democratic Movement is again calling on the PNP to put the Caribbean Court of Justice – ‘Yes / No’ question to the people of Jamaica in a plebiscite [a vote by a whole electorate to decide a question of importance] The ideal time for such a question is now and it would only cost the amount to print additional ballots. The NDM believes that the PNP can use this opportunity to demonstrate that they believe that the peoples’ opinion is valuable; also it would be a clear indication that they [the PNP] support their talk that the people of Jamaica is their paramount concern.

Jamaica Needs a Future of Hope

Posted by on Feb 1, 2016 in Press Releases | Comments Off on Jamaica Needs a Future of Hope

The National Democratic Movement (NDM) laments the calling of a General Election eleven months before it is constitutionally due, without there being a national disaster or crisis. This is the clearest indication yet, that the Portia Simpson-Miller’s PNP administration, after four years (4yrs.) in office, cannot face the people after the next Budget is presented. Hence, the governing party is attempting to trick the people into giving them another term in office, without telling us the truth of the hardships which will be unleashed upon the backs of the poor and middle classes. The NDM is of the view that the last four years of following the IMF orders slavishly, like a headman on a slave estate, administrating lashes on a poor defenseless people, devaluing our dollar to a precipitously low level; demanding more production while making food, healthcare...

Fixed Election date – Part of NDM’s Reform Agenda for Jamaica

Posted by on Jan 30, 2016 in Press Releases | Comments Off on Fixed Election date – Part of NDM’s Reform Agenda for Jamaica

The NDM is heartened by the latest Don Anderson opinion poll which revealed that approximately 80% of the Jamaican people are supportive to the idea of a fixed election date, which is a core policy position of the Movement for the past 20 years of its existence and is taking the opportunity to reiterate its call for Constitutional Reform. The key pillars of the NDM’s Reform Agenda are: (1) Strict separation of Powers (of the three arms of government: The Executive (Cabinet); the Legislature (Parliament) and the Judiciary (the Court/Legal system); (2) Fixed Election Date; (3) Term Limit (two terms per Prime Minister). The NDM has also been calling for the dismantling of political garrisons and for changes to our political culture which touch and concern governance and order. In a recent TVJ’s Prime Time News report (on 26/01/2016)...

“Badman” Politics Has No place in Jamaica’s Present or Future

Posted by on Dec 16, 2015 in Press Releases | Comments Off on “Badman” Politics Has No place in Jamaica’s Present or Future

The National Democratic Movement is concerned, disappointed and dismayed by the utterances of the young, inexperienced and clearly naïve Westmoreland Central Member of Parliament [MP] who seem to be ready to make a “badman” name of himself. The Westmoreland young MP may not realize that he was being taped, now acknowledges and confirms what the NDM and all Jamaica has known for decades; that the tribal, garrison type gun violence is alive and very well within the system and the PNP continues to use it whenever it suites them. So eager he was to declare that he is now baptized and is totally immersed in the tribal system that he draws on the gun lyrics that seem to be popular among PNP supporters. So, he draws on a well know gun song that glorifies gun violence. Gun violence is...
