| 17/06/2009

(Jamaican Observer): The Jamaica Labour Party’s (JLP’s) Gregory Mair was re-elected member of parliament for the St Catherine North Eastern constituency in yesterday’s by-election, defeating the People’s National Party’s (PNP’s) Granville Valentine by more than 2,600 votes. The by-election was ordered by the court which disqualified Mair as MP because he held Jamaican and Venezuelan citizenship when he was nominated for the 2007 general elections. Mair’s 2007 victory was one of fourchallenged by the PNP on the grounds that the winners held dual citizenship going into the general elections.
