SHAW: I have majority youth support

Jamaica Labour Party leadership aspirant Audley Shaw is claiming that more young labourites are in support of him than current leader, Andrew Holness.
According to Shaw, this is an interesting development given that the youth mantra played a major factor in the selection of the then 39-year-old Holness as leader.
Holness' youth was said to be a major factor behind his selection to replace Bruce Golding as party leader in 2011 and the subsequent general election campaign.
But speaking on Power 106 FM’s Independent Talk this morning, Shaw claimed it was he who had the youth support and not Holness.
Shaw says leading up to the launch of his campaign on September 29, more endorsements from the senior ranks of the party are to be expected.
In an interview with The Gleaner last week, Shaw admitted that statements on age from former leader Bruce Golding in relation to a possible successor killed his chances of going for the leadership years ago.
Meanwhile, Shaw is insisting that he has not seen a report that assessed the reasons for the party’s loss at the December 2011 general elections, despite the fact that he is a deputy leader.
Last week Holness said the report would be released before the party's annual conference.
