Possible procedural breach in JLP candidate's nomination, PNP to release statement
People's National Party (PNP) General Secretary Paul Burke has confirmed that the party has received reports of a possible procedural breach in the nomination of Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) Member of Parliament for St James North Western a month ago.
Burke says the issue concerns the location that Dr Horace Chang was nominated on February 9.
The PNP General Secretary says the party will issue a press release on the matter.
However, Burke says the party will not pursue the matter legally.
Meanwhile, Director of Elections Orette Fisher told The Gleaner-Power 106 News Centre that he is not aware any allegations made against any candidate who contested the February 25 polls.
Procedures for the nomination of a candidate are outlined in the Representation of the People Act (ROPA).
It says, among other things, that the nomination of candidates must take place in a public building situated in the constituency that the candidate is seeking to represent.
