Political opponents of the Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler have given him a ‘D’ rating for his handling of the nation’s economy.
Former parliamentary representative for St Michael North West Mark Williams said Sinckler is great at convincing people with words.
“It hurts my heart when a person can stand up and make you believe that what he is saying is the truth,” Williams said.
Williams and other member of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) toured the constituency on Saturday.
Williams said that under Sinckler’s leadership, the entire constituency has failed to flourish.
Sinckler’s opponent for the seat, Neil Rowe, joined the onslaught accusing the Member of Parliament of giving constituents false hopes and dreams while neglecting their needs.
“When it comes to housing, we have eight to 11 people living in a house . . . we have people that the Minister of Finance picks and chooses to send to National Housing Corporation to give a house,” Rowe said.
A new face to the political arena, Rowe reported that issues such as unemployment, housing and blocked drains remain unresolved .
