President & Party Leader
The United Independents’ Congress is a Marcus Garvey inspired liberation movement and grassroots political party that aims to unite the nation around the goal of Good Governance for a NEW and BETTER Jamaica.
Our vision is a Jamaica that that brings out the best in all its People.
Our mission is to create a nonpartisan constitutional Republic of Jamaica that works for all Jamaicans.
Our core values include protecting the life, liberty and property of every citizen equally; promoting personal responsibility and equal opportunity.
The movement was founded by Mr. Joseph L. Patterson, a Chartered Professional Accountant and Businessman, who affirms that the proper role of Government is to protect the life, liberty and property of every citizen equally.
He believes that we should not be divided by parties but be united by purpose.
That purpose should be good governance for a safe, clean and orderly society that empowers everyone to be the best that we can be.
Good governance means protecting the rights and freedom of every man, woman and child with a safe, clean and orderly society where we can all live, earn and retire with dignity.
Good governance requires an education, healthcare, police, justice and public infrastructure system that values, respects and enables every citizen to achieve their full potential as responsible adults, loving families and caring communities.
On December 31, 2015 the UIC was launched in North East St. Elizabeth, the constituency where Mr. Patterson ran as an independent candidate in 2016 and will again run as a UIC candidate in the next general election.
The UIC stands for:
Quality education for every child regardless of family income.
Decent homes in safe, clean and orderly communities for every family.
Productive and rewarding employment for every citizen who can work.
Protection of our children, the elderly and those with special needs.
An efficient and effective government that costs no more than 10% of your income.
Public campaign financing to ensure fairness and equity for all candidates.
Qualified, caring and competent representatives and public servants.
You and the UIC can transform Jamaica into a first class society.
Join us and let’s build a new and better Jamaica.
We are stronger together!
