KINGSTON, Jamaica - Jamaica's ruling party will choose its next leader on Nov. 19 and the winner will become the Caribbean island's next prime minister, a senior government official said on Thursday.

More than 5,000 delegates from the ruling Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) will vote for a successor to Prime Minister Bruce Golding at the party's general council meeting on that date, JLP General Secretary Aundre Franklin told a news conference.

"We have just over 5,000 delegates now, but we will be going over the list and a final count will be known by October 21," Franklin said.
