Political Ombudsman, Donna Parchment Brown, says her office is gearing up for next month’s by-election in North West St. Andrew.
She says the political aspirants will soon sign the political code of conduct.
Prime Minister Andrew Holness announced the March 5 date of the by-election on Sunday evening at a JLP Area Council One meeting at the Pembroke Hall Community Centre in the constituency.
The contest will be between the JLP’s Dr. Nigel Clarke and the PNP’s Keisha Hayle.
Nomination day is scheduled for next Monday.
Mrs. Parchment Brown says she’ll be in contact with other stakeholders regarding election preparations.
