A FORMER BARBADOS LABOUR PARTY (BLP) St John candidate says he will not be caught fighting for a place among “come latelies” to represent his party.
Hudson Griffith, who became only the third BLP candidate to poll more than 1 000 votes in the diehard Democratic Labour Party (DLP) constituency, pulled out of the St John nomination process less than 24 hours before branch members were set to select a candidate to come up against DLP incumbent Mara Thompson.
Five people had reportedly submitted letters of interest in the nomination yesterday evening, including Keith Rayside, Charles Griffith and Fabian Jones.
University lecturer Dr George Brathwaite had also expressed an interest in the seat. Charles Griffith won the nomination last night. (GE)
