Peoples National Party (PNP) General Secretary, Paul Burke, has confirmed that South St. Andrew MP, Dr. Omar Davies has decided against retiring from representational politics.

For months, Dr. Davies declined to respond to speculation that he would not be seeking reelection in a constituency he has held since 1994.

Nationwide News reported this morning that Dr. Davies had decided to remain in representational politics.

Mr. Burke says the report is accurate.

A source in the Simpson Miller-administration told our news center today that Dr. Davies was compelled to contest the next General Election as among other things, he’s considered a “stabilizing” force in the Cabinet.
