The PNP has denounced Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness for his criticisms of former Prime Minister Michael Manley.

The Opposition People's National Party (PNP) has slammed Prime Minister Andrew Holness for what it says is his “attempt to revise Jamaica's history and in the process, sully the name of one of his predecessors - Prime Minister and former President of the party, Michael Manley”.

“Prime Minister Holness reveals a profound ignorance of the significance of Michael Manley's contribution to the development of modern Jamaica, in particular, his promulgation of a raft of social legislation and policies which uplifted the under-served poor Jamaicans,” said the PNP in a statement issued Sunday by the party’s general secretary, Julian Robinson.

Robinson added that Manley campaigned to permanently sever the vestiges of Jamaica’s colonial heritage.

His statement was in response to comments Holness made last Thursday as he addressed the launch of the Jamaica Labour Party’s (JLP) Education Fund scholarships. The prime minister opened a can of worms when he stated that the country was still paying for ideological missteps of the Manley administrations of the 1970s. Manley’s PNP held state power from 1972 to 1980.
