The oppostition Peoples National Party is taking an early lead as results in the Jamaican general election roll in.
The polls closed at 5 pm and results from polling divisions began coming in after 6pm.
With a number of results declared for a range of constituencies accross the island, the PNP has so far won more seats than the incumbent Jamaica Labour Party. In addition pundits point to the fact that a number of key seats have been gained by the PNP so far.
The results will continue to come in through the evening and media houses generally find they are able to call a seat when the percentage of boxes counted reaches above the 90 percent mark. It will be some time before we know whether the early lead will continue or whether there is a chance that the JLP can catch up and overtake the PNP.
