Douglas is Councilor for the Trafalgar Division in PNP General Secretary, Julian Robinson’s South East St. Andrew constituency.

She’s the daughter of former Cabinet Minister in the PJ Patterson administration, Easton Douglas.

Her move today to cross the floor in the Kingston and St. Andrew Municipal Corporation, KSAMC, is sending ripples through sections of the PNP.

Miss Douglas’ move means the governing JLP has increased its majority in the influential KSAMC to four.

PNP General Secretary, Julian Robinson, says the PNP is not surprised by Councilor Douglas’ decision.
