The matter was set for hearing on Friday morning. However, it was withdrawn following a notification sent to Dr. Blythe by the first defendant, Paul Burke, who advised that a selection conference is to be held at the Mannings School auditorium in Savanna-La-Mar, Westmoreland on October 19.
Blythe was seeking a declaration by the court that the procedure used to select Michael Erskine as candidate for Westmoreland Central is fundamentally flawed, illegal and in breach of the PNP's Constitution.
The application also wants the Party restrained from selecting Mr. Erskine or any other aspirant unless the individual is selected by all registered and financial members in the constituency.
Last Monday, the PNP announced that its Executive Committee had unanimously ratified attorney Michael Erskine as the caretaker for Central Westmoreland, to replace former Member of Parliament Roger Clarke who died on August 28.
Lead Counsel Leonard Green described Friday's development as a major victory for his client.
