Jamaica’s Opposition Leader Portia Simpson Miller has pledged to work with the Government to build Jamaica.
“As the Opposition, we have a constitutional duty to scrutinize the Government on behalf of the people,” Simpson Miller said yesterday during her address in Parliament following the swearing in of Members of Parliament and senators.
“We commit to being a vibrant Opposition, holding the Government acceptable at all times,” she said. “However, we will do so in a manner that contributes to the building of Jamaica.”
After congratulating Prime Minister Andrew Holness and his team on their victory in the February 25th General Election, Simpson Miller jokingly warned the Government not to get comfortable on the side of the aisle that they now sit, according to a report by the Jamaica Observer.
