KINGSTON, Jamaica – The House of Representatives voted strictly along party lines this afternoon on three bills seeking to replace the UK Privy Council with the Caribbean Court of Justine (CCJ) as Jamaica’s final appellate court.

The Opposition called for a divide on each Bill. The vote count on each occasion was 41 for and 21 against. 

All 63 MPs attended the sitting. Government members applauded the result. (Jamaica Observer)
