The Jamaican Labour Party continues to celebrate its latest victory, as Ann Marie Vaz was elected as the Member of Parliament for East Portland following yesterday’s by-election.

The Electoral Office of Jamaica says preliminary counting of ballots for the by-election saw Mrs Vaz beating the PNP’s Damion Crawford by 306 votes.

The voter turnout was 53.7 per cent, bettering 43.93 per cent turn out in the 2016 General Election.

The final counting of votes will begin today at the Port Antonio High School starting at 10a.m.
