Dr Peter Phillips To Contest For PNP Presidency

Opposition Spokesman on Finance, Dr Peter Phillips, is again ready to throw his hat into the race for the presidency of the PNP, when a date is decided.

Dr Phillips was twice defeated by Portia Simpson Miller for the position of PNP President, first in 2006 when P.J. Patterson retired from representational politics, and in 2008 when he challenged her for the top job.

Yesterday, Mrs Simpson Miller announced that she will be stepping down as PNP President before the party’s annual conference, next September.

In an interview with IRIE FM News last evening, Dr Phillips said in the coming days he will settle his campaign machinery. 

Meantime, Dr Phillips said Portia Simpson Miller has given exemplary service to the PNP, the country, and the people of Jamaica.

He said she has provided leadership with dedication and passion, and her staunch advocacy, in and out of government, for the social and economic protection of the poor and most vulnerable in the Jamaican society, sets her apart as a political representative and leader with a social conscience.

When IRIE FM News sought to find out if Opposition Spokesman on National Security Peter Bunting will be offering himself for the position of Party President, his advisor Nekeisha Burchell said, that he will make a statement on the matter in short order.
