The PNP and JLP candidates for Eastern St Andrew, Fayval Williams and Andre Hylton have moved to bring the confrontation between their supporters at the Mountain View Primary School under control.

"We understand that about 25 persons clad in orange showed up to vote but questions were raised about where they lived, but we went down and sorted out the situation and calmed tempers so that they could be allowed to vote in peace," Williams told The Gleaner.

For his part, Andre Hylton said that he has heard of the incident and that his team is on the ground managing the situation.

"We heard of an incident at the Mountain View Primary but my team has gone down there to address the situation and to maintain calm," he said.
