Proving there was little or no swing among the Barbadian electorate, the incumbent Democratic Labour Party (DLP) retained the Government this morning with a 16-14 seat majority, following a nail-biting battle that was decided nine hours after the polls had closed.
In arguably the closest local general election result ever, the DLP established its right to run this country for the next five years after winning its 16th seat in the most populous constituency, St Philip South, at 2:27 a.m.
There, Adriel Brathwaite captured 3 514 votes, beating by exactly 400 votes the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) candidate Anthony Wood, who recently returned to the fray after his 2008 defeat.
The last seat to be decided after a recount was won by BLP candidate Santia Bradshaw over the DLP’s Patrick Tannis, both new candidates, in the St Michael South-East riding.
