Peter Bunting ahead of Comrades

Written by Ross Sheil

Thought to be first People’s National Party (PNP) candidate to broadcast personal campaign advertisements, Peter Bunting, who is contesting the Central Manchester constituency, is also ahead of his fellow Comrades in uploading it to video-sharing website

In the clip (see below) he tells potential voters that job creation will be his priority having, he claims, helped create thousands of jobs during his career as an investment banker.

A second clip is an endorsement from John Junor who stood down for this election. With the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) the first to utilise YouTube as an election tactic, Mr. Bunting’s campaign turns the tables on them somewhat, by including footage of rival candidate Sally Porteous. The JLP previously reproduced PNP President Portia Simpson Miller’s words in their ‘Not Changing Course’ advertisement.

“I like him by the way,” Ms. Porteous says of Mr. Bunting.
