General Secretary of the Jamaica Labour Party, Dr. Horace Chang, says Dr. Christopher Tufton’s confirmation as the party’s candidate in West Central St. Catherine is a mere formality.

Last week, the party recommended Dr. Tufton as the candidate after declaring the seat vacant.

This following the removal of Devon Wint earlier this month.

Mr. Wint, who’d beaten Dr. Tufton in a selection exercise on September 26, was forced to resign in the wake of incriminating allegations.

However, the Police say they found no evidence to substantiate the claims.

Speaking with Nationwide News today, Dr. Chang refused to comment on why the party did not reinstate Mr. Wint after he was cleared by the Police.

He says Dr. Tufton will soon be confirmed as its candidate.

Dr. Chang says those delegates in West Central St. Catherine who did not want Dr. Tufton in the constituency, have fallen in line.
