Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) candidate for North East Manchester Audrey Shaw, who is running for a sixth straight win has thrown down the gauntlet to two former Parliamentarians and People's National Party (PNP) stalwarts.

Telling his supporters that "something is happening", the political veteran who hosted a JLP mass rally in Christiana Friday night, declared that the turnout has been the largest of his political life.

Tonight you have warmed my body and my heart," said Shaw.

He added: "Anywhere KD Knight and John Junor are tonight, they must hear the noise of the crowd."

Knight, a former St Catherine East Central MP and Junor, the former Manchester Central representative, have been in Manchester North East helping to boost support for the People's National Party candidate, Valenton Wint.

"Thank you Mr KD," said Shaw. "Thank you for coming to my yard and waking up the Labour Party." 

Shaw, the Opposition Spokesman on Finance said his constituents were tired of the devaluation of the Jamaican dollar as much as Jamaicans are "tired of the love of Sista P," the PNP President Portia Simpson Miller.
