St George North debate live tonight on TV


Share post:

The live St George North by-election debate is still on tonight.

Originally there were suggestions from Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley that there should be three debates, but problems with candidates opting out and the finding of a moderator affected those plans.

Last night, president of the Barbados Association of Journalists and Media Workers, Emmanuel Joseph, said the lone debate would start at 8:05 p.m. on the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation and would be streamed from the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.

Joseph will be the moderator of the two-hour event with candidates Toni Moore of the Barbados Labour Party, Grenville Phillips II of Solutions Barbados and Alex Mitchell of the Bajan Free Party.

Democratic Labour Party candidate Floyd Reifer, People’s Party for Democracy and Development’s David Walrond and Ambrose Grosvenor of the United Progressive Party have opted out of the debate in the run-up to the November 11 vote for a new member of Parliament for the constituency.

The topics to be dealt with are the economy, housing, agriculture, crime, representation and pressing people’s issues. (AC)
