Agard’s replacement to be named soon
The Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) will soon have a new Christ Church West representative.
A date has been set for the highly anticipated nomination meeting, where a replacement will be named to succeed Dr Maria Agard, the former BLP representative for the area.
A party circular, which surfaced today, confirmed that the meeting would be held on March 31 at the Arthur Smith Primary School, St Matthias, at 6:30 p.m.
According to reports, Dr William Duguid – who recently made a comeback to politics after resigning the Christ Church West seat, which he held from 2003 to 2013, and migrating to Canada with his family – is the favoured to replace Dr Agard, who was expelled from the party last November.
To date, no other candidates have publicly expressed an interest in contesting the southern riding.
