#Election1980
OCTOBER 30, 2020: Pearnel Charles Sr, the immediate former speaker of the House of Representatives and a key figure in the elections of 1980 says the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) has shot down the rumor that America helped to topple the Michael Manley government. He says as someone who was close to the inner circle of the party and to Edward Seaga, he had not seen a single engagement with a CIA agent. Charles, however, admitted that the JLP had the American support because of its pro-democracy stance it had adopted at a time when communism threatened Jamaica.
