Toni Moore is the new parliamentary representative for St George North.

The first time political candidate garnered 3 154 votes, brushing off the challenge from all opponents to keep the seat in the fold of the ruling Barbados Labour Party.

Floyd Reifer of the Democratic Labour Party was the nearest challenger with 1 327 votes. Grenville Phillips of Solutions Barbados earned 95, David Walrond of the opposition People’s Party for Democracy and Development got 80, Ambrose Grosvenor of the United Progressive Party 70 and the Bajan Free Party’s Alex Mitchell received ten.

Returning officer Winston Estwick made the announcement at the St George Secondary School counting centre.

Moore, accompanied by Prime Minister Mia Mottley and former representative Gline Clarke, among others, celebrated the end to the by-election campaign. (SAT)
