Businessman Norman Horne has rubbished a claim printed in a local publication that he had endorsed Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) candidate for Manchester Central, Rhoda Crawford.
Horne,a ranking member of the People’s National Party categorically denied the assertion and affirmed his support for the People’s National Party (PNP) candidate Peter Bunting.
Since Horne’s side of the story has come to light, several PNP supporters have said that Crawford’s comments were intentionally misleading, labelling the candidate as untruthful.
“I wish to categorically place on record my full-fledged support for the PNP Candidate in Manchester Central, Mr Bunting. I am confident that Mr Bunting will retain the constituency for a fourth term,” said Horne
“His impending victory at the polls is well deserved and is merited by his hard work and high level of performance as a Member of Parliament and standard-bearer for the People’s National Party,” added Horne.
