The Jamaica Labour Party will be seeking to have the results of another seat overturned through a magisterial recount.

The party yesterday filed for a recount of votes cast in the St James Southern constituency.

That seat was contested by the JLP’s Homer Davis and the People’s National Party’s Derrick Kellier.

The preliminary count of votes had Kellier winning by 72 votes and that margin was confirmed in the final count.

However, attorney Charles Sinclair, who is representing Davis, says he believes some ballots were rejected by the returning officer, which should not have been.

 

Attorney-at-law, Charles Sinclair.

The magisterial recount of ballots for the St James Southern constituency is set to begin on Monday at the Cambridge Courthouse.
