St. Catherine, Jamaica (McN) – The military was called in to defuse the election clash between PNP and JLP supporters.

It’s the first time the military have ever been called in to an election clash, between supporters of the People’s National Party (PNP), and supporters of the Jamaica Labor Party (JLP).

The intervention of the military in Lake’s Pen, St. Catherine, was due to an orange flag being placed in front of a poling station  for the Monday’s by election in the Greater Portmore North Division.

The political ombudsman Donna Parchment Brown and police officers were also called in. It was quelled and the proceedings followed.

PNP candidate Gary Nicholson did not have a vote, because he doesn’t live in the area, however JLP Ann-Marie  Lewis voted at the Ascott Primary after 11 am.

The Electorial Office of Jamaica (ECJ), reported that there was a 14.66% of voters turnout, between 7 am and 11 am from Greater Portmore North by election. The EOJ also stated that of the 10, 677 registered voters, 1565 ballots were cast across 38 poling stations in the 7 voting locations in the division.
