House Expected To Extend ZOSOs Today

The House of Representatives is expected to approve the extension of the two Zones of Special Operations (ZOSOs) introduced by the government last year to curb crime and violence.


Two resolutions, one each seeking an extension of the Denham Town Community Zone ZOSO in Western Kingston and the Mount Salem Community Zone and Environs in St James, respectively, are to be tabled by Prime Minister Andrew Holness and debated when the House resumes at 2:00 pm today.


The Opposition People's National Party (PNP) Members of Parliament (MPs) on December 11 voted to end the States of Emergency (SOEs), which had introduced by the government since January 2017 to curtail crime and violence across Jamaica.


The Government needed a two-thirds majority of the 63 MPs to make the crime-fighting measure remain constitutionally legal, but could not make it with its 33 MPs.


However, the Opposition voted to extend thetwoZOSOs, primarily supporting the social intervention aspect of the measure allowing for the two ZOSOs to be extended to January 2019,
Prime Minister Andrew Holness, who piloted the motions for the extensions, said that they would enable the transformation of the communities through intensified social intervention, and security measures.


He said that failure to continue the initiative would disappoint the expectations of law-abiding citizens in the communities, to the advantage of the criminals.
