The JLP has won, it’s still “unofficial” but from the estimates, debates, media and minds of the people I know it’s a JLP victory. The outgoing Prime Minister and Peoples National Party President Portia Simpson-Miller has lost to the the Bruce Golding led Jamaica Labour Party although she still has been reluctant to accept defeat, ooh well I wonder if she will remain as one of the top 100 most powerful women in the world.
Unlike regular commentors and fellow Jamaican bloggers Bobby and Jamaican Girl I am quite the youngster and although I was born when the JLP was last in power I have only known PNP rule which has been uninterrupted for the past 18 years. Lets see what the JLP can do because I have decided that next time around I will be exercising my right to vote and accepting my role as a Jamaican.
