Nationwide News understands that Education Minister, Senator Ruel Reid, has been earmarked by the JLP to challenge Dr. Dayton Campbell for the North West St. Ann seat in the next General Election.
Several candidates were reportedly interested in becoming the standard bearer for the constituency.
However, it’s understood that Senator Reid is set to get the nod to be the party’s standard-bearer in the constituency which falls in the JLP’s Area Council 3.
The Education Minister addressed a JLP Area Council 3 meeting in St. Ann on the weekend.
Dr. Campbell beat the JLP’s Othneil Lawrence by more than 3-hundred votes in the 2016 General Election.
However, Campbell is vulnerable as the PNP for the first time ever lost all 4 divisions in the constituency during the last Local Government election.
