The  JFF  election  appeals  committee  has  ruled  in  favour  of  the  Raymond  Anderson  led  RSA  team  deeming  six  parish associations  inelligible  to  vote  in  the  JFF  voting  election.

The  election  which  has  been  postponed  owing  to  a  Supreme  Court  injunction  which  extends  28  days  will  end  on  February  9.

However  the  JFF  election  appeals  committee  which  met  with  the  Raymond  Anderson  team  last  Thursday  is  reported  to  have  handed  down  its  decision  late  last  night  ruling  against  the  other  7  items  appealed  by  team  Raymond  Anderson.

The  decision  of  the  Ruel  R  Gibson  committee  makes  six  parish associations   Westmoreland, Hanover, St. James, St Elizabeth, Manchester  and Trelawny are ineligible to vote   as  they  are  not  registered  bodies.

The  issue  of  the  eligibility  of  incumbent  Mike  Ricketts  was  also  thrown  out  by  the  appeals  committee as  his  matter  was ruled  as    not  one  of  discrimination.

The  appeals  committee   has  also  overturned  the   conflict  of  interest   matter  regarding  the  Chairman  of  the  election  committee, Christopher  Samuda .
