DLP returns to Independence Square for final meeting

Social Share


Democratic Labour Party supporters have crammed into the space of its stomping ground, Independence Square, hours before voting begins tomorrow.

In the shadow of the statue of National Hero Errol Barrow, four candidates have reflected on the work of the Democratic Labour Party over the last ten years.

The first speaker was City candidate Henderson Williams and he was followed by candidates Esther Byer Suckoo, Stephen Lashley and Richard Sealy.

The Square is the sentimental location of the party, the last location founding member Barrow spoke before an overwhelming victory in 1986 with the oft quoted Mirror Image speech.

The party has chosen the location across from the historic Parliament Building and next to the lapping waters of The Wharf to fire up its candidates, supporters and empathisers.

Byer Suckoo said the economy was growing and this election is an important one, as she appealed to Democratic Labour Party supporters to go out and vote.

“We will not surrender Barbados tomorrow,” said the candidate for St George South. (AC)
