Police and Walker disagree on ballot ‘theft’

Written by Garwin Davis

Director of Elections Danville Walker is refuting the suggestion that ballot boxes were stolen from an electoral officer’s vehicle in the North Eastern St. Ann constituency. However, Sergeant Bailey of the St. Ann’s Bay police maintains that the boxes were stolen, but have since been retrieved.

Mr. Walker acknowledged that the vehicle was broken into, but all the boxes are intact.

Also, since some polling stations in that division were delayed this morning, the time will be extended if there is a need.

Earlier today, the incumbent Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) candidate for North East St. Ann, Shahine Robinson, expressed outrage at the report of the missing boxes. Mrs. Robinson is being challenged by Oswest Senior-Smith of the People’s National Party (PNP).
