Dr Dayton Campbell’s dream of a third consecutive term as member of parliament under the banner of the People’s National Party (PNP), crashed on Thursday, as the Jamaica Labour Party’s (JLP) Krystal Lee took back the seat that her party last won in 2007.
Lee won with 7,821 votes to Campbell’s 5,783. The independent candidate, Peter Shand, received 783 votes.
“It was expected; I was saying what the comments were on the ground; I’ve been saying what the people were saying, but others chose to believe otherwise,” Lee told The Gleaner Thursday night.
