The Electoral Office of Jamaica (EOJ) says it is fully prepared to receive nominations of candidates for the by-election in the constituency of Clarendon South Eastern.
Nomination will take place today, Wednesday, February 12 from 10:00a.m. to 2:00p.m. at the Vere Technical High School.
The by-election in the constituency is set for March 2, following the resignation of Rudyard Spencer (JLP) as Member of Parliament.
It appears that the People’s National Party will not contest the election and hence will not nominate a candidate.
The Jamaica Labour Party is expected to nominate Pearnel Charles Jr. as its candidate.
