Jamaica: Thompson Withdraws As Chair Of PNP Election Review Committee

Hours after being named as chairman of the People’s National Party (PNP) election review committee, Dr Canute Thompson has written to the party withdrawing his acceptance of the role.

The committee was announced yesterday by general secretary Julian Robinson who indicated that the body is to engage in a dispassionate assessment of the party’s campaign, its image and appeal, and the public’s perception of the organisation among other things.

The committee is also tasked with providing recommendations to address and correct the identified deficiencies and failings as well as assist the party in the development and implementation of its reform and renewal agenda.

Thompson has since indicated that he believes that the PNP already has an abundance of insights available in the findings and recommendations of the 2007 and 2016 review reports and the extent to which the recommendations have been implemented.
