KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) celebrated Dr Nigel Clarke's St Andrew North Western by-election victory at Sherlock Crescent in the constituency this evening.

Preliminary results show that Clarke garnered 4,448 votes over the People's National Party's (PNP) Keisha Hayle, who managed to get 2,812 votes. Both were contesting the St Andrew North Western seat after the resignation of former JLP Member of Parliament Derrick Smith.

In the other by-election held today for the Norman Garden's Division, the PNP's Jacqueline Lewis got 2,062 votes over the JLP's Headley Wilson.

More than 40,000 Jamaicans were eligible to vote in today's by-elections, with 30,216 of that number being in the St Andrew North Western constituency.
