Hartley Henry speaks on elections

CAROL MARTINDALE, carolmartindale@nationnews.com

Added 26 January 2013


Hartley Henry is a political consultant who has devised successful election campaign strategies in 14 Caribbean countries in the last 26 years. He was credited by late Prime Minister David Thompson for his key role in the Democratic Labour Party’s (DLP) 2008 victory, and was appointed Government’s lead political advisor. When Thompson died in 2010, Henry declared: “The kingmaker dies with the king,” and has not been actively involved with the Government since. In this interview with the Nation's Sanka Price, Henry – a losing DLP candidate in the 1999 general election for the St George South constituency – breaks his silence on the forthcoming poll. Full details tomorrow in the SUNDAY SUN's Big Interview
