Duguid confident of BLP pick
Within the next few hours, members of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) Christ Church West branch will vote for a new candidate to replace the embattled current Member of Parliament Dr Maria Agard.
The favourite, and only, contender for the position, Dr William Duguid, is confident that he is the right man for the job.
Duguid previously represented the constituency for ten years before, because of family commitments, he declined to seek re-election in the 2013 General Election and instead made way for Agard. However, after a tumultuous tenure, last November she was expelled from the BLP on the grounds of her “failure to recognise the legitimacy of a democratically elected branch” of the party.
While on a meet and greet with residents throughout the constituency yesterday, Duguid was warmly embraced by many party faithfuls who openly voiced their satisfaction with him returning to Christ Church West. (BA)
