JAS’s AGM which was slated for tomorrow, postponed indefinitely, following Supreme Court ruling

The Annual General Meeting of the Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS) which was slated for tomorrow (July 13) has been postponed indefinitely, following a ruling by the Supreme Court.


The ruling was made in a case brought by a JAS member over the nomination process for the election of officers.


The member wants nominations for the elections, which were delayed by COVID-19, to be re-opened to a wider pool of candidates.


Speaking with IRIE F-M news, JAS President Lenworth Fulton contended that the current set of nominees is still valid so there is no need for nominations to be re-opened.

He assured that the court case will not impact the operations of the JAS.

Mr. Fulton added that the Denbigh Agricultural Show slated for month-end will not be impacted by the postponement of the Annual General Meeting.
