Mottley: BLP fine-tuning
AFTER 77 YEARS of existence, the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) is “recalibrating”, with an eye on recruiting new blood, cleaning up the national voters’ list and having a special “covenant” with Barbadians.
Political leader Mia Mottley made the disclosures last night during a meeting at Lawrence T. Gay Primary School, where hotel official Ian Gooding-Edghill was nominated unopposed to represent the party in the St Michael West Central constituency for the next general election.
She said former Government minister Anthony Wood had been picked to head a team that would spearhead the party’s bid to get the national voters’ list cleaned up.
This move was a reflection of the party’s concern, also registered at the meeting by MP Ronald Toppin, about people who were accustomed to casting a ballot at certain polling stations finding they had been shifted to others, in some cases finding it hard to vote in the 2013 poll. (TY)
