Damion Mitchell, Integration Editor
Director of Elections Orrette Fisher has resigned.
Fisher leaves the Electoral Office of Jamaica today.
His resignation comes ahead of a court ruling surrounding his tenure.
In a letter issued to staff obtained by The Gleaner, Fisher asserted that all has not been well at the Electoral Office of Jamaica.
He said there was a growing level of political interference affecting the organisation.
"The EOJ as it exists today is a far cry from what existed 23 years ago when I joined," Fisher wrote.
NOTE: An earlier version of this story had said Fisher would have been leaving the EOJ at the end of the month. In fact, he demits office today.
