ST JAMES, Jamaica – The Jamaica Labour Party’s Fayval Williams was a short while ago declared the winner of the St Andrew Eastern constituency seat, beating the People’s National Party’s incumbent Andre Hylton by just over 150 votes.
Based on the preliminary results, Williams amassed 7,140 votes to Hylton’s 6,983.
Hylton won the seat by 254 votes in 2011 against a then pregnant JLP candidate Dr Saphire Longmore-Dropinski.
The seat, since it was formed in 1944, has been held by the JLP five times and the PNP six — during the periods 1944 to 1955, and 1976 to present when it regained its name as St Andrew Eastern.
