PM signals that Local Govt elections will be held on schedule next year

Prime Minister, Portia Simpson Miller, has signaled that Jamaicans will be going to the polls next year for Local Government election. Addressing a meeting of the Women&;s Movement of her governing People&;s National Party (PNP) in Clarendon on Sunday, Mrs. Simpson Miller told the members to start doing ground work in preparation for the election. In that regard, she urged the women to focus on prospective voters in their communities. "Ensure enumeration is taking place in the various communities that you live. If you are not enumerated you have no vote, and remember now, next year we will face a Local Government election," she stressed. Local Government elections are, by law, required to be held every three years, but they have often been postponed well beyond this limit for various reasons. Policital watchers were therefore awaiting a signal from the current administration as to whether there would have been another such postponement. Local Government elections were last held in 2012.
