Straughn throws hat in ring for Christ Church East Central
ECONOMIST RYAN STRAUGHN is seeking to be the next Barbados Labour Party candidate for Christ Church East Central.
Shortly before the branch’s annual general meeting this evening, Straughn confirmed his intent.
“I am here and I have expressed my interest. Now it is up to the members to make a decision,” he said.
When asked about his reasons for wanting to represent the constituency, he said there was a need, not only in Christ Church East Central, but “everywhere” but declined further comment until “a more appropriate time”.
NATION ONLINE understands current candidate Desmond Sands is overseas.
When asked if Sands was no longer interested in representing the BLP, branch chairman Wayne Linton said that matter would have to be taken up with Sands.
The constituency is currently represented by the Democratic Labour Party’s Ronald Jones. (CA)
