We (Jamaicans) head to the polls on December 29, 2011 to vote for the party we feel is best suited to direct the country for the next five years - maximum.
From all indications, it is a neck an neck race between the two main political parties, the People's National Party (PNP) and the ruling Jamaica Labour Party (JLP).
Interestingly, both parties is extremely confident of winning but as you an I know, only one can win, especially now that the number of constituencies have been increased to 63, there cannot be a tie!
There is also the National Democratic Movement, and a few other small parties or independent candidates, but those pose no serious threat at this time.
The major local polls differs, to some extent, but all basically agrees that it will be a close election.
As I write there are political debates pending. In fact, tonight the highly anticiapted matchup between Dr. Peter Phillips of the PNP and Minister of Finance, Audley Shaw will take place.
Last week, the younger faces in both parties squared off in the opening debate (of the three).
The final matchup will be next week between the two leaders, Prime Minister Andrew Holness of the JLP and Opposition Leader, Portia Simpson-Miller of the PNP.
With just two week to go, the advertisements, banners and rallies are probably at their peek. Thankfully, we have not had any major disturbance or incident.
I am saying all this my friend to say it's interesting times in our history my friend. Whichever way the election goes, it will be historic.
Let's hope that the new leadership steer this our beloved country on the right path, where the voices of the voiceless are heard and opportunities created for all, young and old.
Stay tuned, you'll be hearing from me on election night, Thursday, December 29, 2011.
