Raymond Pryce Out
News reaching Talk Jamaica Radio is that the People’s National Party will have a new standard bearer in North East St. Elizabeth. It is understood that first time Member of Parliament Raymond Pryce was booted by the party in a heated meeting last night.
The party issued a statement on behalf of Mr. Pryce, a copy was also found on his Facebook page.
In light of recent developments within the political organization of the Constituency of North Eastern St Elizabeth and the serious implications that have arisen, I have decided to withdraw my name from the selection process.
I will therefore not be available to stand as a candidate for the People’s National Party when the next General Elections are called.
I remain a loyal member of the People’s National Party and subscribe to its principles and ideals. I thank the people of NE St Elizabeth for their support and will continue my strident representation on their behalf and in their interest until a new Representative is elected.
It is also understood that he will also be removed as Deputy General Secretary in charge of communications.
Pryce became the Member of Parliament in 2011; just recently businessman Evon Redman had mounted a challenge for chairmanship of the constituency.
