Former Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Winston De La Haye is seeking to represent the People’s National Party in the Constituency of East Central St. Catherine.

Dr. De La Haye was announced as the PNP’s standard-bearer over the weekend.

Speaking with Nationwide News, Dr. De La Haye says he could no longer sit on the sidelines after observing the direction the country is going.

Dr. De La Haye also previously served as President of the Medical Association of Jamaica.

East Central St. Catherine is currently held by the Jamaica Labour Party’s Alando Terrelonge.

Terrelonge beat the PNP’s Arnaldo Brown, by 4 hundred and 79 votes during the 2016 General Elections.

Dr. De La Haye outlined his strategy to put the constituency back in the PNP’s column when elections are next called.

He says Jamaica requires significant re-socialization to tackle crime.
