Jamaica: Hanna moves to heal old wounds; nominated for PNP’s top job

THE marching bands, music trucks and massive crowds which bookended the nominations of Dr Peter Philips and Peter Bunting for the top job in the People’s National Party (PNP) last year were all missing yesterday as 45-year-old Lisa Rene Hanna was nominated for the post.

But the enthusiasm of Hanna’s supporters, those who were part of her official delegations and those who ignored her plea to stay home, was still evident as she officially started her bid to become the sixth president of the 82-year-old political party when PNP delegates vote on November 7.

With her nomination form and $100,000 nomination fee accepted by the party’s general secretary Julian Robinson, it was an upbeat Hanna who faced her supporters gathered outside the party’s Old Hope Road, St Andrew, headquarters and later at the car park of the National Indoor Centre.

While thanking her supporters for their backing, Hanna repeatedly underscored the threat that COVID-19 posed and urged them to observe the protocols.
