Everything is in place for Nomination day today, for by-elections in North West St. Andrew and the Norman Gardens Division of the Kingston and St. Andrew Municipal Corporation.
That’s according to Director of Elections Orrette Fisher.
The Norman Gardens seat was left vacant after former Councilor Dr. Angela Brown Burke successfully contested last year’s by-election to become MP for South West St. Andrew.
Former MP for North West St. Andrew, Derrick Smith also retired earlier this month.
His seat– which he held for nearly three decades, will be contested by the JLP’s Dr. Nigel Clarke, and the PNP’s Keisha Hayle.
PNP General Secretary Julian Robinson told our News Centre yesterday that all is in place for their Candidate to be nominated at 10:30 AM.
While JLP General Secretary Dr. Horace Chang says Dr. Clarke will be nominated at 1:00 PM.
Nominations will take place at the Pembroke Hall Community Centre in North West St. Andrew.
For the Norman Gardens Division, nominations will take place between 12:00 and 2:00 pm at the Windward Road Primary and Junior High School.
