Opposition Leader Mark Golding gestures the ‘power fist’ during the 2023 People’s National Party (PNP) annual conference at the National Arena.

The People’s National Party Patriots acknowledges the recent findings from the national poll conducted by Don Anderson through his Market Research Services Limited (MRSL) in April 2024, which revealed an encouraging shift in voting intention among all demographics in Jamaica.

While we refrain from overly congratulatory remarks, we recognise the evolving sentiment of the Jamaican people as reflected in the numbers.

According to the poll results, the PNP has made remarkable strides, expanding its lead over the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) by a notable 7.8% margin. In a mere eight-month period, the PNP’s voter intention surged by an impressive 7.3%, transcending the margin of error and solidifying its position as the frontrunner in Jamaica’s political arena. The increase in the People’s National Party’s (PNP) margin is indicative of a growing trust in the party’s vision and plans for the future.

The poll results reveal a stark reality: a significant portion of the population, as indicated by the poll, feels disillusioned with the current trajectory of the country. Despite purported ‘economic gains’ touted by Generation 2000 (G2K), a staggering 47% of respondents believe Jamaica is headed in the wrong direction. This sentiment underscores a profound disconnect between governmental promises and tangible progress, a gap that the PNP is poised to bridge.

The incumbent administration’s failure to deliver on its mandate of economic prosperity has resonated with voters, paving the way for a resurgence of confidence in the PNP. We urge Generation 2000 (G2K) to recognise the shifting landscape and join the nation’s collective voice in supporting a transition back to governance under the PNP.

The Patriots restate our unwavering commitment to aiding the PNP in its mission to steer Jamaica toward a path of genuine progress and prosperity. Our focus on empowering young professionals aligns seamlessly with the party’s objectives, and we stand ready to contribute to the formulation of policies that cater to the aspirations of all Jamaicans. Together, we can build a brighter future for Jamaica.

Now is the time for us to unite and steer away from the current course, embracing a future defined by inclusivity, innovation, and sustainable growth. Let us, together, heed the call of ‘Time Come’ and chart a bold course towards a brighter tomorrow for Jamaica.
