Feb 10, 2016: Chairman of the People's National Party Region 3, Minister Phillip Paulwell has said the smooth operation of nominating candidates across the Corporate Area is testimony to the preparation and tireless work of the Electoral Office of Jamaica and the security forces.
Minister Paulwell also noted that the Campaign Team in Region 3 has been engaged in training and mobilization techniques which were reflected in the record breaking turnout of PNP supporters across Kingston and St. Andrew in a peaceful and disciplined manner.
He also extended congratulations to the PNP candidates particularly those who were first time nominees. Minister Paulwell said all the candidates displayed maturity and leadership which will be critical in the second term.
The Region 3 Chairman says the Region's Campaign Management Team will continue to engage workers, indoor and outdoor agents as well as supporters in an effort to ensure that the Election Campaign Guidelines are adhered to and so that Jamaica can continue to be proud of its mature electoral system.
Referring to a traditional Jamaican adage "One hand can't clap" Minister Paulwell said the Opposition Jamaica Party must also be commended for their part in contributing to an essentially incident free nomination process.
