PNP YO Commends the Granting of University Charter to Caribbean Maritime University (CMU)
KINGSTON, JAMAICA: The People’s National Party Youth Organization (PNP YO) congratulates the Caribbean Maritime Institute now Caribbean Maritime University on being conferred to the status of University. The University was born out of co-operationbetween the Government of Jamaica and the Government of the Kingdom of Norway, with the aim to train and equip professional seafarers.
We acknowledge the great strides made over the years, as the Caribbean Maritime has extended its reach globally and is today, recognized as a center of excellence for tertiary maritime education in the Caribbean. Importantly, the CMU now enjoys the elite status of being the only internationally approved maritime education and training institution in Jamaica producing world-class logistics and industry leaders.
We urge CMU to continue to drive Jamaica’s economic development through the provision of good quality education and training.

PNPYO Applauds Phillips’ Shadow Cabinet Selection
KINGSTON, JAMAICA: The People’s National Party Youth Organization (PNP YO) wishes to applaud Opposition Leader and Party President, Dr. Peter David Phillips on his selection of members to form the new Shadow Cabinet. We particularly applaud the inclusion of youthful representation in Dayton Campbell, Lisa Hanna, Mikael Phillips and our former PNP YO President Damion Crawford. We believe this is reflective of the PNP’s seriousness with regards to attacking head-on the issues crippling the development of our nation’s youth. It is with this new vigor and vitality complimented by the experience and wisdom of the other members of the shadow cabinet, that the PNP shows its commitment to resolving our nation’s issues in an attempt to move Jamaica forward.
We have no doubt that at all times, issues unique to Jamaican youth will remain at the forefront of the minds of our newly selected shadow cabinet. After all, it is imperative that we not only counter in the strongest voice, the anti-youth policies of the Government but also introduce a new and higher level of thinking and planning for sustained development where it is now lacking.
The naming of this new shadow cabinet concretizes the growing public belief that the PNP is a government in waiting. The PNPYO remains supportive of Dr. Phillips’ leadership and stands by our Party’s vision to create a Jamaica that works for all.

PNP YO President
