Colin Campbell, says he is not fazed by the endorsement of his challenger by the outgoing Member of Parliament, Dr Omar Davis.

One of the men hoping to become the People's National Party's (PNP) representative in the St Andrew South constituency, Colin Campbell, says he is not fazed by the endorsement of his challenger by the outgoing Member of Parliament, Dr Omar Davis.

Davies is to demit office in August.

Former justice minister, Mark Golding, is up against the former Jamaica Urban Transit Company managing director in seeking to become the PNP's caretaker for the constituency.

Speaking at a meeting in the constituency on Wednesday night, Davies as well as party heavyweights, Ronald Thwaites, Dr Morais Guy and Raymond Pryce, gave their support to Golding.

However, in an interview with The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre last evening, Campbell said those endorsements will not influence the contest.

 

Spirant for the chairmanship of the St. Andrew South constituency, Colin Campbell

Campbell says Wednesday night’s speeches have only served to aggravate delegates in the constituency.

He is expressing confidence he will be able to win the chairmanship.

He claims to have a commanding majority of the over 80 delegates set to vote in the selection exercise.
