KINGSTON – Jamaica Labour Party MP for NE Manchester and Opposition spokesman on Finance, Audley Shaw has hit the campaign trail in his bid to wrest leadership of the party from Andrew Holness.
News out of Shaw’s camp Thursday is that Shaw will head to Hanover this afternoon at 5:00pm for a meeting at the Bethel Primary and Junior High school, just outside Hopewell. Shaw will be meeting with delegates from East and West Hanover. On Friday, he will be meeting with delegates in Westmoreland then on Saturday (September 21) he is scheduled to meet with north Trelawny delegates. Sunday’s meeting will be held with delegates from Southern St. Catherine.
Earlier this week, Shaw met with delegates in NE St. Catherine and NE St. Andrew.
Shaw says he was given the “green light” to bid for the leadership position of the JLP following his many meetings and consultations with members and functionaries of the party as well as a broad cross-section of civil society, business community and grassroots Jamaicans.
The election will take place in November. (Jamaica Observer)
