The Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) has triumphed against the People’s National Party (PNP) in the 18th parliamentary elections since the granting of universal adult suffrage in 1944.
On Thursday night, a preliminary county by the Electoral Office of Jamaica showed the JLP winning with an impressive 50 seats to the PNP’s 13.
Political pundits and pollsters predicted victory for the JLP and earlier tonight (September 3), the JLP broke the historic trend of two consecutive one-term governments.
The victory marks the first time in well over 50 years, that the Jamaica Labour Party has triumphed in two consecutive contested general elections.
The last time the party achieved this was in 1962 and 1967.
