The governing People’s National Party has agreed to give Lloyd B Smith another chance to secure the right to represent the party in Central St. James in the next General Election.

It’s understood that Smith will tussle with three other contenders in a selection exercise which has been set for Sunday, September 26.

The three contenders are Attorneys-at-law Ashley-Ann Foster and Henry McCurdy and the Mayor of Montego Bay, Glendon Harris.

Last Sunday, Mr. Smith lost a yes or no vote on whether he should be the PNP’s candidate for the next election.

He lost by a margin of almost 2 to 1.

But he cried foul after the results were announced, contending that the voting process was flawed.

Mr. Smith then demanded the intervention of the PNP hierarchy.
