Hay Webster only contender for North East St Catherine constituency so far

Sharon Hay Webster previously served two terms as the Member of Parliament for the old South Central St Catherine constituency for the People’s National Party.

Former parliamentarian Sharon Hay Webster is the only individual who has so far expressed an interest in representing the Jamaica labour Party in North East St Catherine despite the constituency executive indicating its rejection of her.

On Friday, the constituency executive passed a resolution putting on record its objection to Hay Webster representing the JLP in the next general elections.

It also called for the JLP leadership to instruct Hay Webster to immediately cease all campaign activities in the area.

According to the constituency executive, Hay Webster has been a source of disunity and confusion in the constituency.

Last night JLP general secretary, Horace Chang, told The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre he is aware of the resolution.

However, he also noted that Hay Webster is the only prospective candidate at the moment.

Hay Webster previously served two terms as the Member of Parliament for the old South Central St Catherine constituency for the People’s National Party.

She was chased out of North East St Catherine by the JLP’s hierarchy following complaints by sitting MP Gregory Mair that he was being undermined.

However, Mair last week indicated that he would be leaving representational politics.
