Jamaica's Prime Minister Andrew Holness has expressed confidence of a comfortable win for the ruling Jamaica Labour Party in Thursday's polls.

Speaking with journalists before voting Thursday at Mona Primary School in the Eastern St Andrew constituency, Holness said he believes the JLP has made a strong case about its performance over the last four-and-a-half years.

"I hope the public will reward us for working in both the personal and national interest," he said.

When asked how many seats he believed his JLP would win, the prime minister responded: "I think we will win far more than we have now." 

The JLP entered Thursday's contest with a five-seat majority, which opinion polls suggest it will increase.
