JLP commission defends debate ban

The Jamaica Labour Party’s Electoral Commission is defending its decision to ban any public leadership debate between party leader Andrew Holness and his challenger Audley Shaw.
The commission announced the ban yesterday – two days after Shaw publicly challenged Holness to a public debate.
Commission Member Tom Tavares-Finson says recent pronouncements by members of both teams through the media have been contentious and the oversight body is moving to preserve party unity.
In a letter to both Shaw and Holness declaring its decision, the JLP Commission made reference to the recent television appearance of Gregory Mair from the Shaw team and Derrick Smith from the Holness camp.
Meanwhile, Tavares-Finson has dismissed suggestions that the decision of the three-member Commission to ban a JLP leadership debate is in favour of one candidate over the other.
