Birthday girl, People's National Party president Portia Simpson Miller has thanked Prime Minister Andrew Holness for giving her what she says is the best birthday gift she has ever had. Simpson Miller turned 66 on Nomination Day. She will lead her party into the December 29 election against the Jamaica Labour Party's 39-year old Holness. On her way to hand in her nomination form in South West St Andrew, Simpson Miller engaged supporters in a race from Spanish Town Road to the Greenwich Town All Age School where the nomination centre is located. The persons who signed her nomination sang 'happy birthday' and gave best wishes to Simpson Miller. Earlier, jubilant Comrades filled Simpson Miller's constituency office and spilled on to the streets causing traffic to be reduced to a crawl. Orange-clad PNP supporters were kept busy dancing to party songs which blared from a 'People Power' truck. "Michael I am going to do it for the Jamaican people," Simpson Miller said as she placed three $1,000 notes on the table. The $1,000 note bears the image of former PNP president the late Michael Manley.
