TAKING CHARGE: Following in the footsteps of such frontrunners as Warren Newby, Matthew Samuda and Floyd Green, Stephen Edwards (above) has been elected president of Generation 2000 (G2K), the youth arm of the ruling Jamaica Labour Party. The G2K had its annual general meeting at the party's Belmont Road headquarters on Saturday, where the young professionals installed its new executive body. Where do things stand in the G2K these days? "G2K has taken on different roles under different presidents, which is understandable because the party has been in different positions at different times," Edwards points out. "Now that the Jamaica Labour Party is in power, our mission will change. And the core of that mission is to provide solutions to the common challenges that the people face. The purpose of G2K is to bring professional politics where it is not just about tribalism; it is about providing solutions, providing what is better for Jamaica."
