SHOWDOWN BEGINS.
The stage is set for the much anticipated showdown between Democratic Labour Party (DLP) candidate Mara Thompson and Barbados Labour Party (BLP) candidate Hudson Griffith to begin.
The January 20 St John by-election was called following the October 23 death of Prime Minister David Thompsonlast year.
Thompson’s widow Mara officially announced last Saturday she would run on a DLP ticket.
Businessman Hudson Griffith, a relative unknown in political circles, has been chosen to carry the BLP torch in the constituency considered a “DLP stronghold”.
Today, the duo will fire the first volleys with public meetings in a campaign and election that is sure to make the history books – one way or the other. (CA)
