HUNDREDS of Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) supporters are now congregated outside the  Nomination Centre where Prime Minister Andrew Holness was nominated as the candidate for West Central St Andrew.

Holness — flanked by a large contingent of security personnel — is travelling in a truck, one of several vehicles in the motorcade.

The green clad supporters ringing bells, blowing horn and shouting "Shower" crossed peacefully over the borderline of Marl Road which is said to be a PNP stronghold.
