The Revised Constitution of the Jamaica Labour Party (1961)

Jamaica Labour Party, The Revised Constitution of the Jamaica Labour Party, Jamaica: J. B. Harding & Co, 1961.

The Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) is one of the two major political parties in Jamaica, the other being the People's National Party (PNP). While its name suggests that it is a social democratic party, the JLP is actually a conservative party.[3][4][5] However, it has longstanding ties to the Jamaican labour movement. The JLP is a member of the Caribbean Democrat Union.
The party was founded on 8 July 1943 by Alexander Bustamante as the political wing of the Bustamante Industrial Trade Union. Bustamante had previously been a member of the PNP.
