The resignation of Bruce Golding as leader of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP), and Prime Minister is expected to feature highly at today's meeting of the party's officer corp.
Minister with responsibility for information, Daryl Vaz, said the officer core has requested to meet with Golding to discuss the development.
In a statement yesterday, Golding said the challenges of the last four years have taken a toll on him and it is now appropriate to make way for new leadership.
Hours later, the JLP's Central Executive unanimously rejected the resignation for the second time in just over a year.
However, Daryl Vaz said while Golding is open to dialogue, he is maintaining that his decision to step down is final.
According to him, Golding's decision to step down is one that has been under consideration for sometime now.
Vaz described Golding as a good leader who will be sadly missed.
