Three new faces in Christ Church for BLP
THE OPPOSITION Barbados Labour Party (BLP) is headed towards having new candidates in three Christ Church constituencies to contest the next general election.
And they will likely be in place by October 15, days ahead of the BLP’s three-day 77th annual conference, which begins October 23.
General secretary Dr Jerome Walcott, who announced last week that he was bowing out of Christ Church South, confirmed that Queen’s Counsel Ralph Thorne was seeking to replace him against incumbent John Boyce.
“Thus far, for Christ Church South it’s Ralph Thorne and in Christ Church West Central I believe we have one person so far who has written expressing interest and [it’s] a new candidate, a very new candidate,” he said. (WILLCOMM)
