Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) campaign co-chairman Rudyard Spencer has been hospitalised after suffering a stroke Monday. 

"He is in the hospital," Matthew Samuda, Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of National Security, confirmed to Loop News.

Spencer, who represented the constituency of Clarendon South Eastern for 18 years, is 76 years old. He resigned as the Clarendon South East Member of Parliament in February 2020. He had been the Clarendon South East MP since 2002 on a Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) ticket.

Spencer joined the Industrial Disputes Tribunal as a deputy chairman in March after his sudden retirement from representational politics. 

 He is also a former president of the Bustamante Industrial Trade Union.
