Prime Minister Andrew Holness has lauded the contribution of late Labour and Social Security Minister Shahine Robinson to politics and national development.
Holness opened tributes to Robinson in the House of Representatives this afternoon, which are now under way.
Robinson had sat just behind Holness in Parliament and was always within proximity to him, even when she entered Gordon House in 2001.
Holness said Robinson, who was the North East St Ann Member of Parliament, took her politics seriously, recalling how well she knew her constituents.
Meanwhile, Holness also paid tribute to another former social security minister Dr Neville Gallimore who died recently.
