Parties’ money could be better spent, says Eastmond


Share post:

Leader of the United Progressive Party (UPP) Lynette Eastmond has criticised the established parties for elaborate spending.

Eastmond spoke on Tuesday night during a spot meeting at Vine Street in The City.

To the handful of people there, she said the money both the Democratic Labour Party and the Barbados Labour Party spent on posters and “big fetes”, would be better spent in the communities and making the lives of constituents easier.

Eastmond will be contesting the City of Bridgetown seat in the May 24 General Election. (TG)
