Newton Amos loses again

Newton Amos

Former Superintendent of Police Newton Amos has again lost an election.

Amos lost the Linstead division by 127 votes, making him a two-time loser. 

He polled 1,129 votes to the People's National Party's Herbert Garriques' 1,256

Amos unsuccessfully contested the North West St Catherine constituency for the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) in February. He lost to the People's National Party's Robert Pickersgill.

Today, Amos lost against Herbert Garriques in his bid for the parish council seat.

However, his margin of defeat today is far less than the 779 by which the JLP lost the division in 2012.
