THE DEMOCRATIC LABOUR PARTY (DLP) candidate who lost the St Michael South East race by fewer than ten votes is back in the running for the party and the constituency.

But this time he has competition.

Former banker and entrepreneur Patrick Tannis will be fighting executive director of the Pinelands Creative Workshop, Rodney Grant, to be a candidate at the next election.

Last night, the two were formally introduced to the branch at a constituency meeting at Parkinson Memorial School, after they threw their hats into the nomination ring.

Reports coming out of the evening meeting, which was chaired by one-time candidate for the constituency, Undene Whittaker, and was closed to the media, was that a third person had also expressed an interest in becoming a candidate but had not yet written to the party.
