A motor vehicle driven by the People's National Party (PNP) candidate for Northern Trelawny, John-Paul White, was damaged by alleged disgruntled PNP supporters today.

It is understood that White, who replaced first-term Member of Parliament Attorney General Patrick Atkinson as the party's standard-bearer in the constituency, was in the vicinity of the Braco hotel in the parish when the incident took place.

Comrades in North Trelawny has been up in arms since White was chosen to run on the PNP ticket.

PNP General Secretary Paul Burke told The Gleaner that White was among a number of candidates present at last month's meeting of the National Executive Council of the PNP by party president, Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller.

But this has not deterred disgruntled Comrades, who staged a protest in the constituency on Monday.
