Independent Candidate for North West St Ann, Peter Shand, says he’s asked for additional security after a threat was made on his life.

Mr Shand, an admitted former supporter of the People’s National Party, PNP, is competing against that party’s candidate Dr Dayton Campbell and the Jamaica Labour Party’s Krystal Lee.

He says he’s learned about the threat about a week ago.

But he says he’s not daunted by it.

Mr Shand, who’s a well known businessman in St Ann, says he has absolute confidence he’ll win Thursday’s election.
