End street campaigning now

Persons worry that the September 3 polls could spell disaster for Jamaica due to the current surge in the highly contagious, sometimes fatal, Covid-19 virus.
Elections are constitutionally due by 2021, but it was widely anticipated that Jamaicans would be called to the polls this year. As he is wont to do, Prime Minister Andrew Holness played his usual game of teasing the country about when he would “call it”.
Despite the theatrics associated with announcing the date and campaigning, legitimate elections are necessary to help maintain trust and confidence in a government. There is no guarantee that the Covid-19 will dissipate by 2021. The fact that the election date was announced in Parliament instead of at a mass rally gave a signal that this would be a different kind of election.

John Lewis: On the right side of history

The death last week of John Lewis, the black American congressman, was recorded but wasn’t big news in Jamaica. It should have been. Especially at this time, in the context of the Black Lives Matter-inspired global demonstrations against systemic racism against black people and the coronavirus pandemic, whose victims in the United States are disproportionately people of colour who include members of the Jamaican diaspora.
For while John Lewis, 80, was a Democratic member of the House of Representative for 34 years, his history, purpose, and inclination made him something more profound than a politician in the traditional sense of that calling. His mission was justice, writ large. The reference to him as “the conscience of Congress” was not misplaced.
