Five down to contest St Philip South seat
Solutions Barbados candidate Ronald Lorde and Bajan Free Party’s John Wayne Scantlebury arrived at the Rices Pavillion within minutes of each other today to be nominated to contest the seat for St Philip South.
Lorde, who was accompanied by four supporters, was sitting before returning officer Deryck Springer when Scantlebury and his four-member contingent arrived.
Both candidates have high hopes of reaping success in the May 24 General Election. Five of the expected six candidates completed the process: Indar Weir of the Barbados Labour Party, Democratic Labour Party incumbent Adriel Brathwaite and United Progressive Party’s Bruce Hennis.
Charleston Taylor, who was scheduled for 10:30 a.m., never arrived. (YB)
