Easy for Sinckler

The figures added up as expected for former Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler in the St Michael North-West constituency.
From the first box counted, Sinckler, of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP), held a commanding lead, only falling short in three boxes.
He beat first-timer Gregory Nicholls of the Barbados Labour Party in all of the others for a cumulative count of 2 549 to Nicholls’ 1 634. There were 26 spoilt votes.
Over an hour before the announcement was made, several jubilant party supporters gathered outside the locked gate at Ellerslie Secondary School anxiously awaiting the results, bellowing out intermittent screams, as it became evident that Sinckler had won. (MB)
