Heavy Voting Underway In PNP Presidential Elections


There are long lines of voters at the National Arena, St Andrew where delegates are casting their ballots to elect the President of the People’s National Party (PNP).

There are nearly 2,800 PNP delegates on the voters list. They will decide whether incumbent Dr Peter Phillips or challenger, Central Manchester MP, Peter Bunting will become the President of the 81-year-old party.

Voting, being run by the Electoral Office of Jamaica (EOJ), started at 10 a.m. Saturday and is to continue until 5 p.m.

The EOJ says there is a large turnout. Long lines were seen this morning with some people complaining that they had been in queue for more than half an hour and had still not been able to cast their votes.

Meanwhile people wearing shirts and carrying paraphernalia supporting both sides have been engaged in lively banter and joking with each other.
