JLP's Ann Marie Vaz instructed to cease unauthorised works in Portland Eastern

Political Ombudsman Donna Parchment Brown wants the Jamaica Labour Party's Ann Marie Vaz to instruct her campaign team and contributors to cease unauthorised works on public facilities in Portland Eastern.
 
The call came in news release on Wednesday afternoon. 
 
The Political Ombudsman raised concern abouts projects which began in 2018 under the Constituency Development Fund or the TPDCo being reported as the work of the JLP's Ann Marie Vaz. The Nonsuch Playfield was cited as one such project where the contractor has reportedly been "sidelined from a MP's Constituency Development Fund," the release said. 
 
Another concern highlighted was that projects were being undertaken on public road ways where the "contractor is doing the work as a contribution to the JLP prospective candidate's campaign without receiving any permit or contract from the municipal corporation, National Works Agency (NWA) or the TPDCo."
 
The Political Ombudsman said such actions are in breach of the Political Code of Conduct.
 
She also called for both the People's National Party and Jamaica Labour Party candidates to avoid public utterances from themselves or other platform speakers which may breach the code of conduct.
