There is a strong contingent of police in sections of South St Andrew, as delegates prepare to cast their vote for one of three candidates vying for chairmanship of the constituency.

Commanding officer for the Kingston Western Division Superintendent Howard Chambers says they are not taking any chances as information on the ground suggests there might be conflicts depending on which candidate comes out the winner."The assessment would have indicated the possibilities of conflict if the result is not saying one side or the other side," he said.

He said that a meeting has been held with Mark Golding, Colin Campbell and Dr Wesley Morris who are hoping to take over the chairmanship of the Constituency from Dr Omar Davies who has retired for health reasons.

"They have pledged that they will do their best to ensure safety," said Superintendent Chambers.
