The Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) urges the People’s National Party (PNP) to accept responsibility for the failure to execute the functions of their office as the governors of all parish councils rather than point fingers and mislead the people.
The facts show that the PNP had grossly underfunded the collection of garbage in Jamaica and the JLP inherited a regime where there was a chronic shortage of trucks.
Since coming to office earlier this year the JLP has already ordered 50 new garbage trucks to be delivered early next year with plans to purchase another 50 by the end of 2017.
Instead of playing games in the garbage the PNP should accept responsibility for their drab failure in organizing and representing their divisions.
Opposition spokesperson on Health Horace Dalley should assess the PNP’s administration of the Parish Councils and realize that it is too late for the PNP to start representing the people after four years of poor administration. His comments are nothing but playing politics with garbage.
The facts show that the JLP inherited a broken down system which was highlighted by the worst fire at Riverton City Dump since Independence. This is no smokescreen but a fact the PNP cannot stomach.
His statement regarding the trucks are false as was confirmed by the NSWMA and is just another example of the PNP councillors playing politics. Their comments show they are unprepared and desperate for attention.
