More bloodletting is underway in the People’s National Party ( PNP ) as word has emerged that there is to be a high level meeting held this evening to decide if Opposition Leader Portia Simpson Miller should continue beyond next month.

Mrs. Simpson Miller was forced out late last year after getting a second straight beaten in a year from the Andrew Holness led Jamaica Labour Party ( JLP ).
