PNP makes some staff redundant following election defeat

The People's National Party (PNP) has made a number of staff positions at its Old Hope Road secretariat redundant.
 
This is the latest challenge facing the party following the September 3 general election.
 
PNP General Secretary Julian Robinson indicated in letters to the affected workers that the party's revenues are projected to fall significantly following the election loss.
 
Mr. Robinson said the party has to realign its expenses to match the reduced income.
 
Radio Jamaica understands that 20 people are employed to the PNP secretariat.
 
However, it is not known how many positions are being made redundant.
 
It's believed the positions cover administration, communications, and organising.
 
The PNP last week suffered a massive defeat in the general election.
 
It was left with 15 seats to the Jamaica Labour Party's 48.
 
The defeat has left the PNP in rebuilding mode with its president, Dr. Peter Phillips, already announcing his resignation.
   
The party is to establish a committee to review the electoral loss.
