Member of Parliament for North West St. Ann, the PNP’s Dr. Dayton Campbell, says he’ll be seeking to replace Lisa Hanna as Chairman of the party’s Region 1.
Region 1 covers the parishes of St. Ann and Trelawny. He says he recently rejected a proposal from party delegates to contest the pending Vice-Presidential elections in the party.
Dr. Campbell says his decision to seek to become Chairman of Region 1 was influenced by the need for the party to reclaim a number of seats that it lost in the February 25 General Election.
Campbell says his immediate priorities include establishing a consensual approach to decision making in the region.
PNP delegates in the region are to vote for a new chairman next month. The current chair of the region Lisa Hanna has indicated that she’ll not be seeking re-election.
Miss Hanna was this week nominated to contest a Vice-Presidential post in the party.
