At a press conference this morning, Holness said his position in respect of Wheatley's potential return to the Cabinet has not changed.
I'm always a believer in second chances, reforming, and redemption but at this moment there are still things to consider before that can there was nothing to block Wheatley's bid to seek re-election as the Member of Parliament for St Catherine South Central on a Jamaica Labour Party ticket in the upcoming general election.
The prime minister continued: "Wheatley is an elected Member of Parliament and I think the party would have to look very closely before making any decision about not running him as a part of our slate for the next general election, whenever that would be.”
