Politics In Jamaica - How Can I Get Involved?
by Wayne Stewart
(Fayetteville, NC, USA)
I immigrated to the UK when I was six and now 46 years later my wife and I are moving back.
Prime minister Holeness appears to be a great positive change leadership for the country.
I heard him speak at a prayer breakfast meeting and was in awe at how he lifted up the name of Christ and His teaching in his speech.
That could never happen US politics.
That being said, I am very interested in politics in Jamaica and Prime Minister Holeness. I want to see and be a part of positive change in Jamaica.
Is there a preferred source I can get information?Wellesley's Note
I read your submission with encouragement and expectation; it is really great to see persons like you from the diaspora coming forward with an interest in building Jamaica.
Kudos to you my friend, we need more persons like you!
Regarding the source of information, the first idea that comes to mind would be the Electoral Office Of Jamaica
, that's the agency responsible for elections in Jamaica and so my assumption would be that they have information on all things political in Jamaica, including the political parties and political support agencies.
Their contact information is...
Electoral Office Of Jamaica
43 Duke Street, Kingston, Jamaica
You may also contact the General Secretaries of each of our two major political parties directly.
So since you have a likeness to PM Andrew Holness, you may contact the general secretary of the Jamaica Labour Party using the contact details below:
Jamaica Labour Party
20 Belmont Road
Kingston 5, Jamaica
The contact for the People's National Party (PNP) is:
People's National Party
89 Old Hope Rd,
Kingston 6 Jamaica

I hope this helps my friend, but thanks again for your submission my brother. Very encouraging.
