Whoever wins the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) St Michael West nomination this evening will likely be the next representative for that constituency after the next general elections, says political pollster Peter Wickham.

He said it is to the credit of the BLP that they have been able to attract two quality candidates in Steven Leslie and Chris Gibbs, as both are young and intelligent and can bring an energy to the representation of a demanding urban constituency.

Leslie, Director of Cricket at the Barbados Cricket Association, and Gibbs, an engineer and businessman, face-off for the nomination at the St Leonard’s Boys School, Richmond Gap at 4 p.m.

The nomination is to replace Bishop Joseph Atherley as the ruling party’s representative in St Michael West after he parted company with the BLP to become Leader of the Opposition. (SP)
