Jamaica: Defeated MP Damion Crawford not seeking bid next time

Jan 20, 2016 | NEWS | 0 comments

In Jamaica, the outgoing MP for East Rural St. Andrew, Damion Crawford, says he declined an invitation by the PNP to represent the party in the constituency at the next General Election, after being beaten in a selection contest by businessman Peter Blake. Crawford says he was asked by PNP General Secretary Paul Burke and other senior members of the officer corps to run again in the constituency. Recently, Crawford threw barbs at Burke and PNP Vice President Angela Brown Burke on social media. Senator Brown-Burke has refuted claims that she called for Crawford to be punished for his actions. She also denied allegations that she was opposed to the outspoken MP being named as PNP caretaker in Northern Trelawny. But Crawford says he’s not engaged in a war with the influential pair.
