Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley topped the 134 candidates who spent more than $2.4 million in Barbados’ May 24, 2018 General Election.
According to the return of election expenses which was published on Thursday, Mottley spent $71 864, almost three times more than defeated Democratic Labour Party (DLP) candidate Patrick Todd in the St Michael North East constituency. The Solutions Barbados candidate Kemar Stuart spent $1 370.83.
Overall, Mottley’s team from the Barbados Labour Party (BLP), which won all 30 seats, spent roughly $1.3 million. This figure is outside of what was spent by the party.
Other big spenders from the BLP included Minister of Small Business Dwight Sutherland, whose $67 543.31 was second only to Mottley, about $16 000 more than former Minister of Labour Dr Esther Byer Suckoo. (SAT)
