Women’s vote ‘will be key’


Share post:

THE WOMEN’S VOTE is going to be critical in the upcoming general election for political parties, according to the election campaign manager for the Barbados Labour Party (BLP), Jimmy Serrao.
He was speaking yesterday at a dedication of the St Michael West constituency office of BLP candidate Reverend Joseph Atherley in Bank Hall.
Serrao, a former chairman of the Electoral & Boundaries Commission, said that in the last election in Barbados there were 12 000 more women eligible to vote than men among the 235 000 registered voters.
“In the constituencies that I go to, a lot of emphasis is placed on recruiting women, not only in helping in the campaign, but trying to get the vote out and getting women to come out and vote.” (JS)
