Today is Nomination Day in Barbados, where political hopefuls will be officially nominated to run for office in the May 24 General Elections.

A record high of 125 candidates are expected to hand in their nomination papers over the course of the day. This figure is a significant increase over the 67 candidates who participated in the 2013 elections.

The two major parties − the Barbados Labour Party and the Democratic Labour Party − are expected to field a full slate of 30 candidates. Also in the running are candidates from the United Progressive Party, Solutions Barbados, Barbados Integrity Movement, Bajan Free Party and the People’s Democratic Congress. A number of independent candidates are also in the running, with two in some constituencies. (NATIONNEWS)
