PNP candidate for South Eastern St Andrew, Julian Robinson, says that he is not troubled that the slowness at some election stations, would impact his voter turnout. Robinson voted this morning at Jamaica College, and has since been checking on things in his constituency. “I don’t think it will affect it, we are trying to put in place measures for people to stay,” he said. “At polling division 44, people have been complaining about how slow the process is and that has been the cry throughout the constituency.” The most delayed scene was at the Sir Howard Cook Development Centre in Nannyville, where voters and election day workers engaged in a verbal altercation over what they say are faulty identification systems.
