Saying goodbye to the politics of yesteryear

Jamaica Observer - 04-16


Ann-Marie Vaz's historic win in Portland Eastern's by-election on April 4, 2019 sent a powerful message about the political pulse and consciousness of today's electorate. As a young person who has been politically insouciant for quite some time, largely due to the divisive, corrupt, and nepotist character of politics in this country, I must confess that I waited with bated breath for the denouement of a much-anticipated by-election that would eventually register a higher voter turnout than that of the 2016 General Election.
