Cordial fight in Christ Church West


Share post:

Dr William Duguid, Barbados Labour Party Candidate and Irvin Belgrave of Solutions Barbados are both confident that they will be victorious in the Christ Church West running.

Duguid who arrived at the nomination centre at Bonnetts Resource Centre, Bonnetts Christ Church, with a small army of supporters was the first of the candidates to go through the nominations process.

Accompanied by his wife Lauren, he and his entourage paraded through the neighbourhood ahead of their arrival at the centre. He was proposed by Ann Mary Thomson while Wayne Joseph was the seconder.


Duguid, a dentist later told the media that he was ready to take back his seat after giving way to Maria Agard ten years ago when he relocated to Canada.

Asked about criticism that he had abandoned the constituency Duguid said he was always there for his constituents and he was definitely back.

“I have no overseas commitments. I am here to stay, he stated.

Belgrave who quietly arrived alone, found himself in the midst of  Duguid’s departure and the two men promptly shook hands.

The retiree said he was putting God first in everything he did.

“I will always do what God wants. I realise the constituents are very disappointed; they are very angry; there is a lot of apathy. My intention is to do something about it and that is why I have gotten into the race and by God’s grace, I know that his will, will be done.

Pointing out that he was a Christian he said he said he intended to make sure that God’s name be given prominence in this country. (MB)
