Kingston, October 7, 2014:  the Executive Committee of the People's National Party has accepted a report from the Party’s General Secretary selecting Attorney-at-law Michael Erskine as the Party's Standard bearer in Central Westmoreland replacing former Minister of Agriculture Roger Clarke who died on August 28.

The Party's Executive  which met  last night, was advised that among the measures pursued to arrive at a candidate was a scientific poll commissioned by the Party by a noted local Pollster of good repute and excellent track record.

It was further noted that those results were consistent with a series of consultations among members of the Party's organization in the Central Westmoreland.

 At the weekend a delegation of Party Officers including Party Chairman Bobby Pickersgill, General Secretary Paul Burke and Deputy General Secretaries Luther Buchanan and Raymond Pryce met with members of the Constituency.

The results of the polls and other consultations were disclosed and accepted by all.

 Accordingly, the Party's Executive unanimously accepted and ratified Comrade Michael Erskine's candidacy.

Erskine’s appointment has not gone down well with former MP for the constituency Dr. Carl Blythe who has vowed to  contest the appointment.
