New Prime Minister
On March 3rd, 2016, Andrew Holness was sworn in as the new prime minister of Jamaica. He promises to "lead a frugal and efficient government and to build public trust", a statement that is bourne out of the mistrust and overspending from the previous party spoken by the people. He also promises to create jobs and other necessities that the country is in dire need of during his reign. While campaigning, Jamaicans learned that some of our national treasures like Goat Island were being considered for sale or were already sold to foreigners, which brought about more concerns on the status of out country. Minister Holness assured us that his cabinet will look to other ways to generate revenue for the island, cut back on excess spending and create jobs in the process.
As we all know, Reggae Music is the heart and soul of Jamaica and the glue that brings us all together. At Holness swearing in, reggae artist Nesbeth, who has captured the island with his song "MY DREAM" sang for the prime minister, who join Nesbeth on stage for a brief duet, which many says speaks to the character of our new prime minister.
As we move into the future, many believe this is a new era and brighter outlook for Jamaica. Many plan to support Holness in the vision to make Jamaica successful beyond party lines, after all we are, "OUT OF MANY ONE PEOPLE".
