Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) general secretary Dr Horace Chang has brushed aside concerns about the delay in the selection process for the West central St Catherine constituency caretaker.

One of the contenders for the position, Dr Christopher Tufton has said the indecisiveness and uncertainty around the selection of a JLP candidate is causing frustration for party workers and delegates.

However, Dr Chang says candidates tend to be impatient for selection processes to be completed.

Chang says as soon as the selection committee determines when the vote for the seat will be held, the party will communicate it to the candidates and the public.

Last month the JLP secretariat discontinued the selection process to determine the caretaker for the seat.

Tufton is vying against attorney-at-law Kent Gammon and Councillor Devon Wint to replace Dr Ken Baugh in West Central St Catherine.
