The recent PNP Presidential Election which saw the incumbent re-elected has continued to reverberate throughout the political landscape as the after effect from the September 20 event begin to sink in, with some resignations coming forward and others expected soon.
One PNP member who has had a lot to say submitted her letter on Monday. Ms Rosemarie Shaw, the Party's Deputy Chairman for the party's structure in the region, decided to walk, claiming incompatibility with the Leader.
In a media interview on Tuesday, Ms Shaw who was the JLP's Mayor for Morant Bay in the 80's before switching allegiance citing years of what she described as prejudice towards her.
In a very frank interview Ms Shaw lambasted people like Jennifer Edwards, who she called a psychofant. She went on to label senior Vice President Angella Brown-Burke as a set-on, who orchestrated a lie act against her and had very strong words for former Finance Minister Dr Omar Davies and former Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade Minister, the person she replaced as party candidate for Western St Thomas, Ambassador Anthony Hylton, describing them as hypocrites.
In the case of Dr Davies, Ms Shaw said he should give up his safe hand over seat of Southern St Andrew and come and work a constituency like she did.
In describing Minister without Port Folio in the office of the Prime Minister, the Honourable James Robertson as a formidable opponent she pointed to her losing effort in the 2007 elections and the fact that others would find it heart rending as Mr Hylton won that seat with the same number of votes in 1993, drawing parallel to the level of support she was able to garner. Notwithstanding the uphill task she faced in the lead, up to and the eventual elections which she lost.
She lamented the fact that many in the party who knew her unequivocal support for Dr Peter Phillips back in the 2006 Presidential Race, was highly critical of her.
When asked what future roll she will play if any in the party, Ms Shaw said that she has no intention of returning to the Jamaica Labour Party and now will concentrate on her group building activities and focus on her private business.
