A World War II veteran, Cecil McIntyre, was among the scores of orange-clad People's National Party (PNP) supporters in West St Andrew who this morning accompanied incumbent Anthony Hylton to the Edith Dalton High School where he was nominated as the party's candidate for the December 29 general election.
"I am one of the 10 nominating Comrades Hylton and I know that we are safe in this constituency," McIntyre said.
He told The Gleaner that if the PNP were as strong right across the island as it is in West St Andrew, the party would win by a landslide.
Hylton is seeking his second term as MP for west St Andrew. His opponents are likely to be George Duhaney of the Jamaica Labour Party as well as Aldith Grant-Lee from the National Democratic Movement.
As Hylton led the procession to the school grounds to be nominated, he was joined in song by comrades who sang aloud "Come wi jus a come and wi nuh want nuh baddaration".
Meanwhile, a handful of students briefly sang the JLP 'vote for labour' jingle from inside a classroom.
