Jamaica's opposition party dominates elections

KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — Preliminary results show that opposition leader Portia Simpson Miller has reclaimed leadership of Jamaica in a dramatic political comeback.

Election Director Orrette Fisher tells The Associated Press that based on preliminary results "it appears safe to say" that the 66-year-old Simpson Miller's party will return to power.

Fisher says he is waiting for all electoral officers to report to his office before he releases a final breakdown of parliamentary seat tallies. He expected his office to release the official count on Saturday.

Simpson Miller was tossed out of office four years ago in a narrow election defeat.

Her victory Thursday marks a major political comeback.
