The dual citizenship case against Sharon Hay-Webster has been discontinued in the Supreme Court.
When the matter was called up for this morning, Devon McDaniel, who filed the election petition, withdrew his application.
McDaniel was seeking to have Hay-Webster ousted as a Member of Parliament.
He had contended that she was ineligible to sit in Parliament because she is a United States citizen.
While admitting that she was born in the US, Hay-Webster had insisted that she has never taken steps to swear allegiance to the US.
At that time, she was the MP for the South Central St. Catherine constituency.
Following a falling out with the People’s National Party (PNP), Hay-Webster sat as an independent in the House of Representative.
She contested the December 2011 General Elections on a Jamaica Labour Party ticket, for the St. Catherine Eastern constituency but was defeated by the PNP’s Denise Daley.
