Floyd Green resigns from Cabinet

by September 15th, 2021

See statement from Mr. Green:

In 2011, I decided to get involved in representational politics because of a desire

To do my part in creating a better Jamaica. It has been a very challenging journey,

But I have been extremely blessed to have served as President of Generation

2000 and to be elected on two occasions to represent the people of South West

St. Elizabeth.

I have also been given the honour and privilege to serve as State Minister with

Responsibility for Youth, State Minister with Responsibility for Industry and

Commerce and Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries.

At every step of the way I have worked hard. I believe I have conducted myself

With dignity, honesty and discipline. I have remained transparent, above the fray

Of tribal politics and have treated every single person I come across with respect.

However, today, I have disappointed so many; my family, including my son, my

Prime Minister and most importantly, the people of Jamaica who i have sworn to

Serve.

No matter how briefly, and regardless of the circumstances, I should never have

Participated in any engagement that could indicate a lack of appreciation of the

Difficult and serious realities that now face the entire country.

My actions have demonstrated a lack of sensitivity for the difficult realities that all

Of us are facing currently.

It was wrong. I accept that this was an error in judgement and that it sends the

Wrong signal especially in light of the government’s drive to reduce the spread of

Covid-19. For this I am really and truly very sorry.

Therefore, I met this morning with Prime Minister, the Most Honourable Andrew

Holness ON, PC, MP and indicated that I will withdraw from the Cabinet.

I will work hard to regain the trust and regard of the Jamaican people. I remain

100% committed to serving the people of South West St. Elizabeth. I can and will

Promise that this lapse in judgement will not recur.

Again, i apologize. I promise to, in the future, do right by the Jamaican people.
