The new session of the Jamaica Parliament has begun.

The Peoples National Party is back in opposition.

President of the party and leader of the opposition, Dr. Peter Phillips hailed the holding of a free and fair election.

But he had a major concern.

Dr. Phillips told the parliament there is a danger that lurks, which must be addressed in the interest of democracy.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness shared his concern about the voter turnout as well.

Mr. Holness also feels his colleagues in the Parliament can help with immediate effect.
