Campaign train roars on with 11 days till general elections

With only about a week left to wrap up campaigning activities, the country's two major political parties are out in the field this evening to shore up support.

The Opposition Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) is in Gregory Park, St Catherine where it is rallying its base in East Central St Catherine for the battle between its candidate attorney-at-law Alando Terrelonge and the incumbent, another attorney Arnaldo Brown. 

Terrelonge will be hoping to unseat Brown, a first-time parliamentarian after winning in the 2011 general elections.

Meanwhile, the ruling Peoples' National Party (PNP) is in Mandeville this evening to mobilise its base in a hope to take a clean sweep of Manchester. The party currently holds three of the four seats in Manchester and is hoping that its candidate for North East Manchester will unseat the JLP's Audley Shaw.
