South East St Mary ballot inspection to continue

Lawyers for the two candidates who contested the St Mary South East constituency in the February 25 General Elections are to return to the Electoral Office today to resume inspection of all relevant documents related to the poll.

Yesterday a High Court judge cleared the way for the resumption of the inspection when he issued a consent order in the election petition filed by Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) candidate Dr Norman Dunn.

Earlier this year Dunn obtained a court order that allowed his legal team to inspect all relevant electoral documents for the constituency, including poll books and ballots that were spoiled or rejected.

Dunn is seeking to overturn the decision of a Parish Judge to declare People's National Party (PNP) candidate Dr Winston Green the winner of the parliamentary elections.
