Holder to carry BLP banner again
Attorney-at-law Arthur Holder will carry the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) banner in St Michael Central in the next general election.
During Sunday night’s nomination exercise, which attracted a large crowd at the George Lamming Primary School, Holder secured 271 votes to comfortably defeat challenger Hally Haynes, who only managed to muster 50 votes.
“You have my full support as we move forward as a team,” Haynes said in conceding defeat.
Holder is the returning BLP candidate, having lost by a narrow margin to Minister of Social Care Steve Blackett of the ruling Democratic Labour Party in the 2013 general elections.
