CARICOM, OAS to Observe Jamaican Elections

SAN JUAN – Missions from the Caribbean Community and the Organization of American States have arrived in Jamaica to observe this week’s general elections.

The 11-member CARICOM Election Observation Mission is led by the Chief Elections Officer in Belize, Josephine Tamai, the regional group said in a statement.

“The team will continue to observe the remainder of the pre-election period, and the polling process on Election Day including tabulation and processing of results,” CARICOM said.

CARICOM observers met with representatives of the ruling People’s National Party and the main opposition Jamaica Labor Party and plan to meet with the Electoral Commission, police commissioner and leaders of minor parties before voters go to the polls on Thursday.

The former attorney general of The Bahamas, Janet Bostwick, heads the OAS observer mission, comprising 21 delegates from 17 countries.

Jamaica, a country of 2.7 million people, has 1.8 million registered voters, according to data from the Electoral Commission.

In the 2011 elections, the PNP took 41 of the 63 seats in parliament, with the rest going to the JLP.
