The Councillor for the Port Antonio Division, of the Portland Parish Council, Dexter Rowland, says he erred when he voted in support of the no confidence motion brought against the Mayor of Port Antonio, Benny White yesterday.

White lost the no-confidence motion 5-4 and with it the title of Mayor.

Mr. Rowland says that although he was dissatisfied with Mr White’s  performance, voting against his comrade was a mistake.

According to Mr Rowland, when he realized that he had voted against the mayor, he made an appeal to the election director to recast his ballot but was not allowed.
