Mitchell wants in on debates


Share post:

President of the Bajan Free Party, Alex Mitchell, is demanding answers to why he was barred from participating in the proposed debates designed for candidates battling for the St George North constituency.

Earlier this month Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley announced that candidates vying for that seat would have to take part in three live debates organised by the Barbados Association of Journalists and Media Workers (BARJAM) and televised on the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation.

However, Sunday Sun investigations revealed that one of the six candidates, Mitchell, was left out of the planning process for the debates.

In an email dated October 13, president of BARJAM, Emmanuel Joseph, told Mitchell the only way he could take part in the debates was if another candidate opted out.
