Nomination Day unity

The traditional Nomination Day festivities took place today, Tuesday February 9, 2016 in Falmouth. The traditionally peaceful event lived up to our expectations as both major parties nominated their representatives to contest the North Trelawny seat.

As usual, both parties had nominations an hour apart. The PNP was first in the 12 pm to 1 pm time slot. They nominated a first-timer, Agronomist, Victor Wright.

Wright is from Spring Gardens in Southern Trelawny and attended William Knibb Memorial High School and the College of Agriculture (now C.A.S.E.). He currently lives in Stonebrook.

Next, the JLP nominated Computer Consultant and third time candidate, Dennis Meadows. Meadows is from Kingston and attended Ardenne High and the University of the West Indies. He relocated to Montego Bay, but has now made Trelawny his home. He is married to Falmouth native, Angella Campbell, the CEO of Microbeeps Ltd, a Digicel Agency store.

JLP Nomination Day 2016 in Water Square, Falmouth

We caught video footage of the JLP walk from Martha Brae bridge into Falmouth.

For the PNP march from Falmouth Gardens play field, our photographer was waiting in Water Square, only to hear that they had marched onto King Street. we therefore missed video coverage of their march.

Nomination Day is a traditional psychological competition as to which party can field the bigger crowd. There was a significant revelation which is also evident in the videos. The PNP crowd was made up primarily of the older faces. The JLP seems to have attracted the younger people. As to whether they have a vote and if this is a general trend, is anyone’s guess.

Falmouth News presents photos and videos from the day, revealing some of what transpired in Falmouth today.

    • Some Jamaicans are so blindly political. There were almost twice as many pictures of the PNP as there were of the JLP when this person wrote this. Yet he says he hardly sees any pictures of the PNP. I guess he would be happy if there were absolutely no JLP pictures. Then the JLP would say this is a PNP site. Well, that’s the nature of politics.
