Hudson Griffith calls it quits in St John

THE BARBADOS LABOUR PARTY (BLP) nomination process which has swept out a number of well-known faces in recent weeks has taken another casualty.

Hours before the St John nomination is set to take place at the St John Primary School, Hudson Griffith has called it quits. 

The contractor and former Lodge School student confirmed to NATIONNEWS.COM just minutes ago that he would not be taking part in the nomination.

Griffith, who contested the St John by-election following the death of Prime Minister David Thompson and again in the 2013 general election, said if his record did not speak for itself then he was not interested in running. He failed in those attempts.

However, the BLP has not taken the St John seat in a post-independent Barbados.

Griffith said he would be concentrating on his business and leaving the politics to the swarm of newcomers who wanted to unseat him as the BLP’s man in St John.

NATIONNEWS.COM has been informed that five people have submitted letters of interest in the nomination this evening including Keith Rayside, Charles Griffith and Fabian Jones. (GE)
