Former Senator, Rudy Grant, is expected to be the new Chief Executive Officer of the Barbados Labour Party.
Barbados TODAY has been reliably informed that Grant’s appointment was expected to be ratified by the party’s Executive Council when it met tonight at party headquarters.
Grant unsuccessfully contested the Christ Church East Central constituency in the 2003 general election on a BLP ticket and failed again to gain the favour of the constituents in the St. Michael Central constituency in 2008.
Following the 2003 general election, he was appointed parliamentary secretary in the Ministry of Tourism.
Grant replaces former CEO of the party, David Joey Harper, who was made redundant in 2009 when the party was restructuring its administrative arm.†When contacted, Grant declined to comment on reports of his imminent appointment to the post. (NC)
