    KINGSTON Provisional results showed Jamaica's opposition party narrowly winning a general election on Thursday, with promises of jobs and hefty tax cuts that appealed to voters weary of the current government's IMF-mandated austerity measures.

    The Jamaican Labour Party won or was ahead in 34 of 63 parliamentary seats with almost all the votes counted, the electoral commission website showed.

    Prime Minister Portia Simpson-Miller's People's National Party had been predicted to win, but polls had tightened in the last week. The PNP took 29 parliamentary seats, the provisional results showed.
