OCTOBER 28, 2020: Politician historian and former PNP Senator Delano Franklyn recalled that Manley and Seaga went after each other in the most aggressive of ways and they pitched their points to an agitated populace.

“Because the campaign during that period of time was within an ideological framework and philosophical framework and you had Michael Manley on one side who was a person who campaigned hard, he was extremely convinced, deeply committed and on the other hand you had Seaga who was equally passionate to the belief that he held dear, it was friction! Friction and sparks during that period of time,” recalled Franklyn in an interview with The Gleaner.
