Following discussions at the Vale Royal Talks on Sunday (February 19), in which the Government clarified its position on the specific matters of concern to the Opposition relating to the planned review of Jamaica’s Constitution, the Opposition has announced that it has named its representatives for the Constitutional Reform Committee.

The two representatives of the Opposition on the Constitutional Reform Committee will be Senator Donna Scott-Mottley (from the Senate) and Anthony Hylton (from the House of Representatives).

Leader of the Opposition Mark Golding said this matter has once again demonstrated the value of Vale Royal talks in allowing constructive dialogue in a setting which facilitates candid discussions on issues of concern.

“In participating in the deliberations of this Constitutional Reform Committee, the Opposition assures the Jamaican People of our steadfast commitment to doing all that’s within our power to ensure the protection of the hard-won rights and freedoms of the Jamaican people,” the party said in a release.
