Comrades loyal to Member of Parliament for East Rural St Andrew Damion Crawford last night protested at the People’s National Party headquarters as they again voiced their rejection of Sunday’s selection in which he lost his bid to seek re-election on a PNP ticket.

Crawford was only able to muster 166 votes in comparison to the 218 garnered by his challenger, businessman Peter Blake.

Supporters of the outspoken parliamentarian stormed the entrance of the PNP headquarters on Sunday protesting the results.

They also protested in Bull Bay yesterday morning.

Crawford has urged his supporters to accept the results as he is sure the process was fair.

However, they were out again last night insisting he must be returned as the candidate.

One supporter, who did not identify herself, insisted Crawford had done all he could as MP.

Meanwhile, last night, Crawford continued to maintain that protesting was not the way to go.

Crawford’s opponents have said he was ousted because he did not listen to constituents and was disrespectful towards them at times.
