Former Prime Minister P.J. Patterson will reportedly meet with members of the People's National Party in North Trelawny later.

Former Prime Minister P.J. Patterson will not be meeting with members of the People's National Party in North Trelawny later this evening in an attempt to settle a growing rift in the constituency.

It was earlier reported that Patterson would be heading to Trelawny.

However, it's now understood that the former PNP president will not get involved.

The PNP will be represented in the constituency by John Paul White in the upcoming general election. 

However, residents are upset, because they say they had been led to believe that White was out of the running.

The residents reportedly want either Member of Parliament Damion Crawford, Mayor Garth Wilkinson, former Councillor Claudette Jackson or Councillor Suzette Brown to represent the constituency. 

It's believed that Crawford is the popular choice.
