Thompson quits, but stays

DR Herbert Thompson, yesterday resigned as chairman of the Electoral Commission of Jamaica (ECJ), with immediate effect, but kept his seat on the body, sparking strong rebuke from senior Oppo-sition poli-tician, Audley Shaw. Thompson informed Governor General, Sir Patrick Allen of his decision, saying he had no option but to quit after attracting flak from the Opposition, for accepting an award from the ruling People&;s National Party (PNP). A news release from King&;s House said that Thompson reiterated to the governor general "his conviction that the award was meant to honour the work of the ECJ, in building Jamaica and was never meant for him personally". The governor general, King&;s House added, "thanked Dr Thompson for his service to the ECJ on which he will continue to serve as a member". But last night, Shaw insisted that Thompson should step down from the commission completely.
