DLP supporters hopeful


Share post:

The atmosphere was speculative at Democratic Labour Party candidate Floyd Reifer’s constituency office at Charles Rowe Bridge, St George.

Early boxes showed a heavy lead by Barbados Labour Party candidate Toni Moore who so far had received more than twice Reifer’s votes.

DLP members were overheard talking about whether their candidate could come back and which areas would vote for which candidate.

Many members of the camp were glued to a television showing a Zoom meeting with political analysts and members of the various parties.

As more votes were announced, Moore’s lead extended but acting general secretary Damien Griffith said it was far from over.

“We are still hopeful because all the boxes have not come in. There are still areas with large voter turnouts and they haven’t counted our strongest boxes yet. Floyd Reifer has revitalised this community and we are expecting a surge,” he said. (CA)
