Marshall keen on elective politics
SELF-PROCLAIMED ACTIVIST Rommel Marshall is champing at the bit at what seems like a potential opportunity to represent the St Michael West Central constituency once again.
The politician, who ran for the National Democratic Party (NDP) in 1986 and lost before winning on a Barbados Labour Party (BLP) ticket from 1994, until he was defeated in the general elections of 2008, told the MidWEEK Nation yesterday that people of the area were requesting his presence once again.
Marshall made his interest known during a visit to Robinson Close, St Stephen’s Hill, St Michael, where developer and resident of the area Leroy Robinson explained that he and other residents were upset with the stench of molasses dumped there weeks ago.
“Recently people have been asking me if I would go back in the fray and I like it,” said Marshall, who resigned from the BLP in 2012 when the hierarchy of the party under then Prime Minister Owen Arthur was preparing to try and possibly expel him.
