The Opposition Leader Should Now Do The Honourable Thing

Posted by on Mar 29, 2015 in Press Releases | Comments Off on The Opposition Leader Should Now Do The Honourable Thing

The National Democratic Movement (NDM) is not surprised or unhappy that the Court of Appeal has supported the decision of the Supreme Court. The ruling of the Court has now placed the Leader of the Opposition, Andrew Holness, in a most untenable situation. The NDM is calling on Mr Holness to do the honourable thing. Mr Holness occupies a most important position in the constitution of Jamaica as Leader of the Opposition. His continued presence in that position will bring that position into disrepute. As the Leader of the Jamaica Labour Party, his members must see that he is damaged and call on him to vacate. It is very important that people who occupy constitutional positions in Jamaica are always viewed in the utmost of integrity, an example to emulate and for young people to look up to. Mr...

NDM says No to the Construction of IDB Office in Residential Community

Posted by on Feb 26, 2015 in Press Releases | Comments Off on NDM says No to the Construction of IDB Office in Residential Community

The National Democratic Movement is registering its opposition to the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) constructing their offices on a lot of land on Montrose Road, near to Vale Royal (the official residence of the Prime Minister of Jamaica) in the Seymour Lands area of South Eastern St. Andrew, otherwise referred to as “The Golden Triangle”. The NDM is alarmed that this is being done in this prime residential area which is not zoned for commercial buildings under which offices fall. The NDM noted that the Inter-American Development Bank has been a faithful ally and partner to Jamaica for over forty years and that Jamaica has benefited significantly from the agency’s expertise in wide array of subjects, ranging from education to agriculture. However, the Movement is disappointed that the multilateral agency is planning to construct an office in the residential...

The National Democratic Movement (NDM) has hailed the decision of the Supreme Court, in its ruling handed down this morning, regarding the actions of the Leader of the Opposition, Andrew Holness, when he submitted undated resignation letters for at least two JLP Senators to the Governor General in 2013 after the party’s bitter leadership contest. The NDM hailed the Court’s ruling, that the Opposition Leader’s underhand and unprecedented method, of ending Mr. Arthur Williams’ tenure as a Senator (by tendering his “resignation letter” knowing that he had no actual intention of resigning) as null and void, unlawful, unconstitutional, and contrary to public policy, as a good one and a victory for justice and good order. The Movement further called upon Mr. Holness to do the honourable thing and resign from the office of Opposition Leader as he has breached...

Posted by on Jan 10, 2015 in Press Releases | Comments Off on NDM Condemns St. Thomas Parish Council Members for Abusing Law & Order

The National Democratic Movements strongly condemns the actions and utterances of members of the St. Thomas Parish Council, whom it believes were rude, disrespectful, out of order and insulting to the Jamaica Constabulary Force and in particular the St. Thomas Police. The NDM called upon the leadership of both the PNP and the JLP to immediately issue the sternest rebuke to their Councillors, for the broadside attack on Law & Order in the parish (by the PNP councillors) and the silence of the JLP Councillors who were present at the Parish Council meeting, which gave many the impression that they agreed with the outrageous verbal abuse of the police. The NDM commended the St. Thomas Police officers for walking out of the meeting in silence, and has taken note of the treat issued by one of the PNP councillors to get the head police officer...
