Marshall making a comeback?

Former Barbados Labour Party (BLP) MP for St Michael West Central, Rommel Marshall, could be making a political comeback.

Talk has been rife that Marshall, who resigned from the party in August 2013 after he was seen canvassing for the ruling Democratic Labour Party (DLP) against the BLP’s Dale Marshall in the last election, is seeking to return to the BLP fold.

However,whencontactedbyBarbadosTODAY, Marshall said people from the constituency of St Michael North West, which is currently represented by Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler, have been encouraging him to carry the BLP banner in that urban riding.

Marshall, who served as a member of Government between 1994 and 2008, represented St Michael West Central, which is currently held by DLP representative James Paul. However, Marshall said the recent calls have been for him to “keep Sinckler at home” in the neighbouring St Michael North West constituency, in which attorney Gregory Nicholls was last fielded as the BLP candidate.

While not confirming publicly that he has an interest in returning to the party, Marshall, who previously ran for the now defunct National Democratic Party, pointed out that on two previous occasions Ralph Thorne, the current BLP candidate for Christ Church South, ran on a DLP ticket in St Michael North.

He also recalled that former St Michael South East representative Delisle Bradshaw had left the BLP in 1999 to run on a DLP ticket, before returning to the BLP fold.

Marshall further noted that Wendell Callender had left the BLP, joined the DLP and then returned to the BLP. (NC)
