McClean joins race in St John


Share post:

The rumoured split among Democratic Labour Party (DLP)supporters in their St John stronghold came to light yesterday when stalwart Dr Leroy McClean paid his election deposit to contest the constituency as an Independent.

McClean, who contested the St George South (1991) and St Michael North East (1994) constituencies for the DLP, lost his bid to carry the party’s banner in St John when George Pilgrim, the party’s general secretary, was selected. It was a decision that reportedly did not go down well with some members of the constituency branch. 

Though contesting the seat as an Independent, McClean intends to remain a member of the DLP. (SP)
