The country's two main political parties are scheduled to stage meetings in Lucea, Hanover and Stony Hill, St Andrew as they continue on the campaign trail.

National elections are constitutionally due in 2017, however, the prime minister has indicated that they will be called early next year.

Supporters of the ruling Peoples' National Party (PNP) are in Lucea, where they will hear from president, Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller, and other PNP officials.

The PNP holds both the western and eastern Hanover parliamentary seats, which are represented by Ian Hayles and Dr DK Duncan, respectively.

And leader of the Opposition Jamaica Labour Party (JLP), Andrew Holness, and other party officials, are to address supporters at a constituency conference scheduled for the Stony Hill Primary School in St Andrew.

Stony Hill is a part of the West Rural St Andrew constituency currently held by the PNP's Paul Buchanan. The seat was last won by the JLP in the 2007 general election by Andrew Gallimore.
