Forde takes Christ Church West Central


Share post:

The people of Christ Church West Central have spoken. And resoundingly so. They surprised Adrian Forde with over 3 000 votes to incumbent Stephen Lashley’s 1 100.

He said while he was quietly confident he would win he thanked voters and supporters for believing in him.

“I have to thank my team. They rallied with me. Christ Church West Central has been underrepresented for the past decade and I am aiming to remedy that.”

He said the constituents are proud to finally have a son of the soil represent them and he said after the celebrations at party headquarters this morning, he will be getting to work.

Returning officer Walter Jones declared him the duly elected representative at 3:03 a.m. Forde, on the Barbados Labour Party ticket, garnered 3891 votes.

Lashley, running on a Democratic Labour Party ticket, received 1 131 votes. 

Kenneth Lewis of Solutions Barbados got 170 and Ria Riley of UPP had 45. There were 15 rejected ballots. (NS)
