BLP’s weir flying south


Share post:

IT WAS ST PHILIP NORTH in the last general election for Indar Weir, but now the businessman is heading south.

He confirmed to the DAILY NATION yesterday that he was switching from the St Philip North constituency and will be contesting Sunday’s nomination to be the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) candidate for St Philip South in the next poll.

In his first attempt at elective politics in 2013, Weir was beaten by Minister of Transport and Works Michael Lashley.

“I’ve been approached by Barbadians in general but particularly constituents from St Philip South and some members of the St Philip South branch, who have all with one voice suggested that the Labour Party cannot afford to waste me as a politician and therefore, they would prefer to have me come and work with them in order that we may win the next election,” he said.

Please read the full story in today’s Daily Nation, or in the eNATION edition.
