Election race wide-open - BBC report

Written by JamaicaElections.com

The BBC has published an online report ahead of Election Day, Monday. And just in case you needed reminding, here is a Jamaica fact box, provided by Reuters AlertNet. AlertNet also has a page which links to a mountain of data about the country, provided by international agencies including: the United Nations (UN); the World Bank; the World Health Organisation (WHO); Transparency International and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) - very useful if you are conducting research.

Thinking of public information … back in July JamaicaElections.com encouraged readers to contribute to the Wikipedia online encyclopedia and add information about the country’s political system and history. There has since been quite a lot of activity on People’s National Party (PNP) President Portia Simpson Miller’s Wikipedia page; meanwhile the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) which was the first to tout its presence on the Internet this election, needs to do a lot more work on the Wikipedia page of its leader, Bruce Golding.
