The Jamaica Labour Party Election Commission has ruled on the protocol governing the upcoming Internal Elections.

Member of the Commission Tom Tavares-Finson says the decisions are aimed at maintaining party unity.

He said among other things, the ruling stipulates that no delegate will be allowed to attend the conference in T-shirts bearing the image or likeness of any candidate.

Tavares-Finson noted that the decisions have been taken in the best interest of the JLP and are designed to reduce tension, and to ensure that every delegate of the JLP will be able to cast his or her vote in an election that is free and fair.

The Commission is also reminding all candidates that in keeping with the requirements of the Party’s Code of Conduct adopted by the Central Executive on September 15, 2013, a detailed account of all funds employed in the election campaign must be kept including sources of funds as well as a detailed account of expenditure.

It says it has communicated the decisions in letters to all candidates involved in the current internal elections of the JLP.

The election will be held on November 10.
