Husbands wins St James South nomination

Sandra Husbands has been elected the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) candidate to represent the St James South constituency in the next general election.

In a vote tonight at the West Terrace Primary School, Husbands fought off her rival Dr Ronnie Yearwood, winning 87-41.

Yearwood conceded defeat, telling party supporters present: “I say in all honesty that I wish her the best.”

“We respect and do not question the integrity and the decency of the democratic process … and it was indeed my honour and privilege to have been part of that process.  And I want to thank everyone who took part in that process, whether you voted for me or not,” he said.

Yearwood warned that the upcoming general election will not be an easy one for the party and they need to be prepared.

“We do not expect that the election will be handed to us … and we have to show and share our vision to the people of Barbados why the Barbados Labour Party should be elected and returned as the government,” he stated.

Husbands echoed similar sentiments, telling supporters that the BLP will have to work hard in the run up to the next polls.

She also thanked Yearwood for “a very spirited campaign”, adding that she looked forward “to seeing you find your place, to be able to make your contribution”.

    Zeus it is true. The upcoming general election will not be easy. Why? The white mouth and hand to mouth bajans will surely forget all the mess dem put us through. Wait till the monies start to hit pockets. So yes, it is going to be tough. One other matters. Look and the mind games this government playing with us. Boom. Come election time everything will be righted as the older folks would say.
