THE OPPOSITION Barbados Labour Party (BLP) completed its full slate of candidates for the next general election last night, but not before some political fireworks at its last nomination meeting.
Social worker Neil Rowe got the nod to carry the party’s banner in St Michael North West against the incumbent, Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler, but his selection was not without controversy.
What was expected to be a contentious nomination meeting at Ellerslie Secondary School in Black Rock, took an even more surprising twist when two contenders withdrew from the race.
Four candidates were initially vying for the pick: Rowe, former Member of Parliament for the constituency Mark Williams, Marsha Hinds-Layne and Michael Harris. (SDB Media)
