Representatives from the protesting team were selected to meet with PNP Deputy General Secretary Julian Robinson, Pryce arrived later to much shouts from the crowd.
After more than four hours some of supporters were seen storming out. Some removed the T-shirts bearing Pryce’s image, threw them to the ground, and threatened to burn them.
They also said they would not be voting for the party in the next general election and demanded to meet with party president Portia Simpson Miller.
