The People’s National Party PNP has expressed confidence that it will continue to hold control over the Kintyre Division in St Andrew East Rural.

This amid reports that the Jamaica Labour Party JLP had signalled its intention to file a magisterial recount for the division, following the final counting of ballots in Monday’s Local Government polls.

After the final count, the PNP’s Vivienne Brown-Bond won the division with 1, 319 votes over the losing candidate, the JLP’s Kelvin Clarke who got 1,287 votes.

Opposition Senator, Sophia Fraser Binns, who also serves on Mrs. Brown-Bonds’ legal team, said with the current 32 vote difference, the PNP remains confident that the division will remain with the party.
