Former JLP Senator, Dennis Meadows is alleging victimization, as he fights for the right to represent the party in the constituency of West Central St. James.
Mr. Meadows says despite applying four months ago to fill the vacancy in the seat, persons have recently inveigled Opposition Senator, Marlene Malahoo Forte to try and oust him.
Mr. Meadows, says he may be paying the price for his loyalty to Audley Shaw in the bruising 2013 JLP leadership contest.
Mr. Meadows unsuccessfully vied for the North Trelawny seat twice.
Mrs. Malahoo Forte was the losing JLP candidate in Central Westmoreland in 2011.
Mr. Meadows says Ms. Malahoo Forte is a stranger to the people of St. James.
When contacted by our news centre, Mrs. Malahoo Forte says she will make herself available for selection in the seat, if asked by the people.
