Karen Cross expelled from PNP
The People's National Party (PNP) has expelled controversial member Karen Cross.
The decision was made on Monday during a meeting of the party's executive committee.
In a statement, the PNP did not detail the reasons for the expulsion.
However, it said the decision was made after considering a report of its disciplinary committee and in accordance with Section 260 of the party's constitution.
The expulsion takes immediate effect.
Cross has been in a legal wrangling with PNP General Secretary Dr Dayton Campbell over allegations she made about him.
Campbell has sued her for defamation in a matter that is now before the court.
Cross has also been actively protesting against the current leadership of the party.
On Thursday she led a demonstration at the gate of the party on Old Hope Road in St Andrew.
