Phillips confident Solutions will triumph
Leader of Solutions Barbados, Grenville Phillips, is “very confident” about his three-year-old party’s chances of making it all the way to Parliament.
Speaking to the DAILY NATION outside the National Housing Corporation on Country Road, St Michael, where members of his party paid in their $250 deposit to the temporarily located Treasury department, Phillips said: “After this, there is Nomination Day; after that is General Election Day; after that we expect to go into Parliament and occupy Cabinet.”
Fifteen Solutions Barbados candidates turned out to pay their money yesterday.
Solutions Barbados has managed to attract a diverse group of candidates, including three married couples, and unlike any of the other three parties in the contest, includes some white Barbadian candidates.
Phillips said his candidates had all signed the party’s contract in which they agreed to pay US$250 000 for broken promises, foremost of which would be joining another political party while they were elected as Solutions candidates. (GC)
