The People's National Party (PNP) is calling for the intervention of the political ombudsman following the placement of graffiti on walls in the town of Annotto Bay, St Mary, promoting the Jamaica Labour Party's (JLP) candidate for South East St Mary, Dr Norman Dunn. 

In a release to the press yesterday, PNP Chairman Fitz Jackson said the ombudsman, Donna Parchment Brown, should immediately enforce the code of conduct. He says she should insist that the graffiti be immediately removed, noting that it serves to intimidate voters.

The PNP chairman says there is no need to deface private or public property in the name of politics and that it represents an old style of politicking.
