Dead Voters in Central Westmoreland?

JLP candidate for Central Westmoreland, George Wright, says he’ll be seeking to have the election result in the constituency declared null and void.

Mr. Wright claims that 13 persons who died before the elections, voted last Thursday in the constituency.

The official results from the EOJ show that Wright polled 8,859 votes, compared to 10,078 for the PNP’s Dwayne Vaz.

Mr. Wright says the protocol governing the transportation of ballot boxes in the constituency was not observed last Thursday.

Efforts to contact the PNP’s Dwayne Vaz were unsuccessful as his phone rang to voicemail.
