dc.description.abstract In Jamaica due to computer problems that resulted in an inaccurate voters list – polling for the general lists had to be called off and the balloting postponed. Opposition Jamaica Labour Party leader - Edward Seaga who expressed concern about the readiness of the electoral machinery to deal with the upcoming elections and that it could have serious legal implications - correspondent Gary Allen reports. A proposal is being considered in Washington to give Caribbean countries access to NAFTA for a three year grace period, during which they will enjoy the trade benefits enjoyed by Mexico. Dr. Richard L. Bernal Jamaica's Ambassador to the United States has been at the forefront of these discussions and NAFTA lobbying. In an interview with BBC correspondent Yvette Rowe - journalist Kevin Noblet of Puerto Rico gives his views and analysis on Puerto Rico’s Governor Pedro Rossello proposed changes to the 936 Investment Programme. Barbados MP Leroy Trotman is still keeping people guessing over speculations that he intends to resign his government seat as a member of the ruling Democratic Party. His decision stems from his dissatisfaction about Barbados Prime Minister Erskine Sandiford calling for a two year wage freeze for both public and private sector workers. Mr. Trotman did say that he would reveal his decision when the time is right – correspondent Sandra Baptiste reports. The mayor of the Haitian capital Port au Prince Evans Paul is a supporter of former President Jean Bertrand Aristide, and also a victim of the 1991 Haitian Coup. Mr. Paul will be addressing a conference in London organized by the London based Haiti Support Group on the need to restore democracy to Haiti and President Aristide to power. Rev. Leslie Griffith is the organisation’s chairman and says that Mr. Paul’s visit is part of a campaign to heighten awareness in Europe about the situation in Haiti – correspondent Yvette Rowe reports from an interview with Rev. Leslie Griffith. en_US
