Tufton among three vying for JLP's West Central St Catherine seat
Opposition Senator, Dr Christopher Tufton, is among three members of the Jamaica Labour Party seeking to take over the West Central seat when Dr Ken Baugh steps down ahead of the next election.
The other contenders are Councillor Devon Wint and attorney-at-law, Kent Gammon.
In a release this afternoon, JLP General Secretary, Dr Horace Chang said the three applicants are excellent candidates and he is looking forward to a smooth selection process.
Meanwhile, Chang says the party is on course to having all candidates in place by September.
In particular, he says the party will continue to work to settle representation for North East St Catherine and North West Manchester as no applications have yet been received from potential candidates.
North East St Catherine is currently represented by Gregory Mair.
The People's National Party's Mikael Phillips is the sitting North West Manchester MP
