Officials of the Peoples National Party (PNP) are to meet today to determine the status of the North East St. Elizabeth constituency.

The meeting follows charges laid on the Member of Parliament, Kern Spencer yesterday, as a result of the investigations into the Cuban light bulb project.

The PNP claims that it is committed to the highest standards of honesty and integrity and questions regarding Mr. Spencer’s innocence or guilt must be left to the determination of the courts.

Yesterday, tears flowed freely in the constituency after news broke that Mr. Spencer was facing criminal charges.

Constituency Chairman, Joseph Allen said more than 50 persons converged at the constituency office to show their solidarity.

Energy Minister, Clive Mullings said he is not surprised about the charges, as the police investigation was in keeping with what was found during the preliminary probe conducted by his ministry.

Mr. Mullings is calling for Mr. Spencer to resign as a Member of Parliament for North East St. Elizabeth.
