Magisterial recounts are to begin in another two divisions today.

In one of those recounts PNP candidate Godfrey Knight will be seeking to overturn a one-vote deficit, in the Tollgate Division in Clarendon South Western.

That division was won by the Jamaica Labour Party’s, Radcliffe McDonald.

There were 23 rejected ballots.

The recount is scheduled for 10 o’clock this morning.

Meanwhile, the Electoral Office of Jamaica says it has been summoned to a magisterial recount at 10 o’clock for the Moneague Division in St Ann South Eastern.

The Jamaica Labour Party’s Delroy Kelly defeated the PNP’s Lloyd Garrick by a margin of 13 votes in that division.
