Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller has announced that Jamaica's next general election will be held on  Thursday February 25, 2016.


Nomination day has been set for next Tuesday February 9, 2016.


The Prime Minister made the announcement at a PNP mass rally in Half Way Tree, St. Andrew on Sunday evening.


"Are you ready to step up the progress?" asked Simpson Miller before she made the much anticipated announcement to the orange sea of supporters that flocked the streets of Half Way Tree.

JLP leader Andrew Holness seemed unperturbed by the Prime minister's announcement, stating that his party has been preparing for the election since September 2015.
