KELLITS: JLP hosting conference; candidate says response is good

The Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) is gearing up to host its annual constituency conference in Clarendon Northern tomorrow, November 3, and the party’s new election candidate is claiming that the feedback has been good.

However, when asked to explain what he meant by ‘good’, the candidate, Dwight Sibblies, said: “Not at this moment; I do not wish to elaborate.”

Sibblies will try to unseat long-serving Member of Parliament Horace Dalley of the People’s National Party.

Asked if he is confident of a victory for the JLP this time round, Sibblies told The Beacon: “I am confident that the people of Northern Clarendon will make the right decision.”

Sibblies was also asked if his team would be ready if an election were to be held in the seat early. “Whenever the election is called, we will do what we have to do to be in the position to go to the polls,” he replied.

Meanwhile, a number of mainly green-clad JLP supporters took to the streets of the constituency with a motorcade today as they energized supporters ahead of the constituency conference. It will be held at 4PM tomorrow at Kellits Primary School.

The PNP, in the meantime, will host its constituency conference in Kellits next weekend.
