People’s National Party candidate for Central Manchester, Peter Bunting at 7.10 a.m. became the first voter at Polling Station 32, located at Grove Road in Mandeville.

Speaking with the media after casting his vote, Bunting said his team was ready for the day. “We have well oiled machinery, we had our final workers meeting yesterday and everybody is motivated, and enthusiastic, barring any negative report during the course of the day I expect things to go smoothly.”

Bunting is going up against the Jamaica Labour Party’s candidate Danville Walker.

There was a major hiccup at the polling station, as the building was without electricity. Polling station 32 was in darkness and workers had to be using candles, while carrying out their duties.

Voting for the most part has been going smoothly throughout the constituency with the other polling stations opening on time and people turning out in their numbers to cast their vote.
