I suggest Ms. Portia-Miller solve the crime and poverty issues before worrying about an entirely ceremonial head of state. Jamaica has far bigger
problems than a harmless figurehead. Shows how out of touch these politicians are, she reminds of me of former Australian PM Paul Keating's
"anachronism" comment to the Queen's face back in 1992 .... well nearly 20 years later the Queen is still the Queen of Australia and Paul Keating has
been out of office for 15 years lol.
At any rate this would have to be put to a referendum and polling has indicated that most Jamaicans are not
in favor of a republic.
EDIT: Support for an Australian republic has hit an all time low. Only about 35% would vote for a republic down under.
