The People's National Party's executive committee said that it has expelled activist Karen Cross from the party with immediate effect.

The committee, in a release yesterday, said that it came to the decision "having received and considered the report of the disciplinary committee, and in accordance with Section 260 of the Party's Constitution". The committee said that this action was taken at its meeting held yesterday.

Cross had accused the party's general secretary Dr Dayton Campbell of sexual assault on social media. However, despite making a formal statement to the police, the Jamaica Constabulary Force said that Cross neither provided any evidence nor was able to provide any person interested in making a complaint against Campbell. Cross and others also protested outside the party's Old Hope Road headquarters last Thursday, calling for a change of leadership in the party.
