International Observers Praise Jamaican Elections

SAN JUAN – Observer missions from the Caribbean Community and the Organization of American States on Tuesday hailed last week’s general elections in Jamaica as free and fair.

The results “reflected the will of the people,” CARICOM said in a statement.

“We believe it was free and fair... it was credible ...the mission’s general assessment of the day’s activities is that the voters were able to cast their ballots without intimidation or harassment,” CARICOM Chief of Mission Josephine Tamai said.

In their appraisal, the OAS observers highlighted Jamaica’s “good practices” of the democratic process as a “good example” for the region.

The main opposition Jamaica Labor Party won the Feb. 25 ballot, the Electoral Office said Tuesday at the conclusion of the official recount.

The final tally leaves the JLP with 32 seats in the 63-member parliament, compared with 31 seats for the incumbent People’s National Party.

JLP leader Andrew Holness is expected to be sworn-in Thursday as Jamaica’s new prime minister.
