Pledging “with God’s help” to be an effective representative, hotel executive Colin Jordan last night accepted his nomination as the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) new man in St Peter, replacing former Prime Minister Owen Arthur.
Jordan, a former president of the Barbados Hotel & Tourism Association, was nominated by Arthur’s brother Richard during a meeting of the St Peter branch at Alexandra School. Richard Arthur said the former Prime Minister “supported Colin as his successor”.
The branch’s selection of Jordan now has to be ratified by the party. (TY)
