Contacted by our news centre Delano Seivright, the Jamaica Labour Party’s candidate for East St Thomas and JLP standard bearer for West Central St Catherine, Dr Christopher Tufton, say they will sign the code in short order.

Seivright explains that there were ongoing concerns about happenings in the constituency that caused him to decline signing the code last week.

However, he says those matters have now been settled and he will go ahead and sign.
