Hylton Resigns As Chairman Of PNP Eastern St Andrew Apparatus

News post July 25, 2016

Andre Hylton
Andre Hylton, the Peoples’ National Party (PNP) candidate who failed to retain the Eastern St Andrew seat in the February 25 polls, has resigned as chairman of the party’s constituency apparatus. Hylton submitted his resignation letter to PNP Region Three Chairman Phillip Paulwell on Friday. The resignation becomes effective on July 31. He did not cite a reason for his resignation, but stated “unity is the hallmark of any political organisation and going forward I sincerely hope the constituency of Eastern St Andrew will apply this mantra to regain this seat for our great party”.

According to Hylton, over the last eight years “many lessons have been learnt, many bonds forged but more importantly, I made every effort to meet the needs of my constituents in making their lives comfortable…”

The businessman was a first-time MP when he defeated another first-timer, the Jamaica Labour Party’s (JLP) Dr Saphire Longmore, to capture the seat in 2011. However, Hylton lost to the JLP’s Fayval Williams in February.
