Decision day in Christ Church West
The Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) will decide this week on who will carry its flag in Christ Church West in the next general election.
The party’s Christ Church West branch meets on Thursday, March 31 to select a candidate to replace the sitting Member of Parliament Dr Maria Agard.
The man who Dr Agard replaced, former MP Dr William Duguid, is widely tipped to be nominated unopposed. Dr Duguid quit active politics in 2013 after representing the constituency from
2003, paving the way for Dr Agard to represent the BLP stronghold. However, Dr Agard’s expulsion from the BLP last November paved the way for her predecessor’s return and he announced last month that he would seek the nomination.
Opposition Leader Mia Mottley will be the main speaker at Thursday’s meeting which begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Arthur Smith Primary School, St Matthias, Christ Church. (NC)
