France Cham­bers – Pas­tor (Hanover):

Jamaica Gleaner - - WESTERN FOCUS -

Na­vorn Sa­muels, who still con­sid­ered him­self a Com­rade, al­beit he will be run­ning as an in­de­pen­dent can­di­date in the Green Is­land di­vi­sion, says he is “sick and tired” of both Hayles’ lead­er­ship style and his can­di­date-se­lec­tion pol­icy.

Re­peated ef­forts by The Gleaner to con­tact Hayles, who is also the mem­ber of par­lia­ment for Western West­more­land, proved fu­tile.

Out­side of Hanover, the parish coun­cil seats are ex­pected to fol­low the pat­tern of the re­cent gen­eral elec­tion, which would seem to sug­gest that, St James and St El­iz­a­beth will fall to the JLP; and Trelawny and Hanover could go ei­ther way. West­more­land is ex­pected to stay firm PNP.

The dy­nam­ics in Trelawny could be most in­ter­est­ing as with Pat­more not run­ning, it will be in­ter­est­ing to see where his in­de­pen­dent Lorimers seat will go. Ad­di­tion­ally, it will be in­ter­est­ing to see where the chips fall in the Al­bert Town di­vi­sion, where Gillings won for the JLP four years ago, but sub­se­quently switched al­le­giance to the PNP.
