IT was a carnival-like atmosphere in Annotto Bay, St Mary, as thousands of Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) supporters turned out to witness the nomination of the party’s candidate, Mayor Richard Creary.
The St Mary South East candidate handed in his nomination papers at the electoral office about 11:15 am.
Creary paid his $3,000 nomination fee in $100 notes.
He was declared duly nominated by returning officer for the constituency Dellra Herde-Morgan.
In the meantime, Creary’s opponent, the People’s National Party’s Winston Green, is expected to be nominated at 12:30 pm.
