Several months ago, PNP General Secretary Paul Burke had told The Gleaner that he was expecting to have all 63 standard bearers in place by the end of August.
But two months later, the final slate of candidates is yet to be completed.
There have been protests in some constituencies over the proposed candidates, but Pickersgill says the issues are being dealt with.
“Comrades are coming to grips with the fact that the selections are coming to end,” he said.
“The furthest we are going is the 5th of October.”
Yesterday, one of the most contentious selections was finalised when Lisa Hanna was approved by delegates in South East St Ann after her challenger Lydia Richards pulled out over complaints about the delegates’ list.
Patrick Atkinson’s Trelawny North and Damion Crawford’s East Rural St Andrew constituencies are yet to be settled.
