"Prime Minister Bruce Golding's party reinforced its narrow parliamentary majority by winning a by-election called after a governing party lawmaker acknowledged he held U.S. citizenship in violation of constitutional rules. Jamaica Labor Party candidate Everald Warmington coasted to victory in Monday's election in southwest St. Catherine parish, capturing 64 percent of the vote, according to the island's electoral office. His closest opponent trailed by 30 percentage points." (04/05/11)
