THE Central Executive of the ruling Jamaica Labour Party's (JLP), at a meeting held at the party's Belmont Road Headquarters Kingston yesterday, confirmed four new caretaker/candidates.

Education Minister Senator Ruel Reid has been confirmed as the caretaker for the St Ann North West constituency. Reid, a former Jamaica Teachers' Association president, is former principal of Jamaica College.

Wife of Portland Western MP daryl Vaz, Ann Marie Vaz was confirmed as caretaker for the Portland North West constituency. “Vaz has proven herself to be very popular among the working class within the constituency through her philanthropic contributions,” the party said. Her involvement, said General Secretary Dr Horace Chang, contributed significantly towards her affirmation.

The other confirmed caretakers are Robert Miller for St Catherine South Eastern and Delroy Slowley for St Elizabeth North East .

Chang said the party also discussed the Government's economic policy, which continues to show positive indicators.

He also announced that plans have commenced for the annual JLP conference, which is to be held in November.

The meeting, Chang said, was fruitful and the party was particularly pleased with the economic and national security gains being accomplished by the Andrew Holness Administration.
