Kari Douglas, councillor for the Trafalgar Division in South East St Andrew, has switched her allegiance to the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP).

Douglas, the daughter of the late  PNP stalwart Easton Douglas, made the announcement this morning. 

"I hereby confirm that I have elected to leave the People's National Party (PNP) to continue serving my country as a member of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP). This morning I made the symbolic walk in crossing the political aisle in the Kingston and St Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAMC)...My former political party has also, for sometime, not been a space where creative ideas, especially the thoughts of young people are encouraged and treated fairly. I have decided that enough is enough."

She also lauded Prime Minister Andrew Holness for his leadership of the country, commending him for his "refreshing approach to politics"

"I must indicate that given the dynamic leadership with a positive difference that Prime Minister Holness has been able to offer the country and the JLP over the past few years, I am certain and in absolutely no doubt that I have made the right decision."
