As supporters of the Barbados Labour Party pack the St John Primary School for this evening’s nomination of the party’s candidate to contest the next general election, Barbados TODAY has learnt that Hudson Griffith has dropped out of the race.
Party insiders told Barbados TODAY they have received a letter from Griffith indicating he will not be seeking to represent the rural constituency this time around.
Griffith had lost the January 2011 St John by-election and the 2013 general election to Mara Thompson, the widow of former St John MP and Prime Minister David Thompson.
