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)

    If anyone can tell me what Dr. Duguid will bring that he did not bring when he operated in controversy under a BLP band wagon flag, I would be greatly impressed. If there is one thing that this BLP administration knows better than the Fruendel Stuart led one is how to recycle waste.

    @Sunshine sunny sunshine that is exactly why the DLP didn’t select you as you were a little too much waste for them…They are a lot of waste and Freundel,the two Denis and Chris along with you are much more than Barbados deserve and can handle at this or any time…

      I think that you are either suffering from a wedgie or getting your palings all mixed up. You see bajan boy, I could not care less if B good or D bad or vice versa. What I care about is seeing Barbados reach the pinnacle of the previous successes it enjoyed under management that understood what had to be done to get us there. Since you are in defense of an administration, maybe you can tell me what contributing factors are responsible for the dismal opinions citizens hold of two long-serving parties. If Duguid for you is the best, why are many opinions of him so bad? And please, pretty please, do not tell one france about what he did for his constituents because you can give that lot two cheese cutters and salt bread and they would sing like nightingales.
