Jamaica Makes It JLP Again

Jamaica has re-elected the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP), giving Prime Minister, Andrew Holness a strong mandate to govern.

The JLP has won 49 of the 63 seats for a landslide victory.

Reports out of the island describe the national election as a shocking defeat for the People’s National Party (PNP) which won only 14 seats and saw a number of its top representatives going down to defeat.

For the tourism industry, that’s good news as Jamaica’s tourism minister, Edmund Bartlett was re-elected.
