PNP General Secretary, Julian Robinson, says he doesn’t expect efforts to continue to remove East St. Catherine Member of Parliament, Denise Daley as the party’s candidate in the next General Election.
Mr. Robinson says discussions are underway among feuding factions in the constituency.
He says he’s hopeful for a resolution of the issues.
Julian Robinson, PNP General Secretary, speaking this afternoon with Nationwide News.
Our news center understands that senior members of the PNP met yesterday with Spanish Town’s Mayor Norman Scott about his plan to challenge Miss Daley.
Scott was reportedly told that due to the current state of its internal group structure, East St. Catherine is not a recognized constituency.
This means the PNP’s constitution forbids the challenge to the sitting MP going ahead.
But supporters of Mr. Scott are arguing that in that case Miss Daley should not be allowed to proceed as the PNP candidate for the constituency in the next General Election.
This is because the PNP constitution also says that an MP who allows the group structure in their constituency to fall into a state where the constituency is not considered as a recognized constituency, should not be allowed to face the electorate.
Calls placed today to Mr. Scott and Miss Daley were not answered.
