As Holness did earlier, Roberts expressed concern about the slow pace of the electoral machines being used in seven of the 63 constituencies, complaining that they are frustrating the electoral process. But unlike Holness, Roberts was fuming. He charged that some of the machines are malfunctioning. This, he said, has slowed up the process considerably. As such, Roberts charged that persons administering the electoral process in the constituency are taking as much as half hour per voter. Patrick Roberts, the man who has been chosen by the People’s National Party (PNP) to unseat leader of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) Andrew Holness in St Andrew West Central is very displeased. Both Holness and Roberts crossed path at the Dupont Primary School, located on Olympic Way in the constituency.
Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Leon Wobschall claims Robbie Fowler is unlikely to be appointed Leeds United manager.The former Liverpool and Whites striker has been linked with the vacant position at Elland Road, following David Hockaday’s departure.But football writer Wobschall insists he can’t see the 39-year-old being handed the reins at the Yorkshire side.“The smart money woun’t be on Fowler,” he told the Sports Bar. “The David Hockaday experiement didn’t work, he only lasted 70 days, and it was a bolt from the blue when his name appeared.“It would be another real punt if Fowler [got the job]. It sounds good, and might make a few headlines, but I really can’t see it happening.”
