Mark Golding claims not to hold political grudges

Jamaica’s Opposition Leader Mark Golding sought to show he held no grudges by appointing controversial People's National Party Vice-President Damion Crawford to his 19-person shadow cabinet.

Crawford, who will speak on culture and entertainment issues, caused a stir last weekend after he was heard in a leaked voice note criticising high-ranking members of the party, including Golding.

The outburst was made in the lead-up to the November 7 internal presidential election in which Golding defeated Lisa Hanna.

Julian Robinson emerged as the biggest surprise with the finance, planning and public service portfolio.

Among the fresh faces are senator Janice Allen, who will shadow tourism, and Gabriela Morris, the youngest ever member of the Upper House, covering the youth and sports portfolio.
