The RJRGleaner Group is planning a news forum for the candidates in the upcoming by-election in the battleground seat of St. Mary South Eastern.
The company, which owns RJR News, wrote to the two general secretaries on Tuesday to get their agreement to participate in the forum.
The RJRGleaner Group move comes as the Jamaica Debates Commission has indicated that it is not within its remit to facilitate debates for candidates in a by-election.
The RJRGleaner Group is committed to seeking to provide members of the public with information that will help them determine the issues before them. The Group believes the best way to do so is through a debate or forum.
