There was absolute silence in the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) camp today after a major billboard blunder occurred in The City.
However, Prime Minister Freundel Stuart was quick to poke fun at the BLP over the apparent poster mix up that resulted in the BLP’s City of Bridgetown candidate Colonel Jeffrey Bostic being wrongly identified as the representative for Stuart’s St Michael South constituency.
Stuart, who is due to come up against the BLP’s Kirk Humphrey, said it was an example of the BLP’s unpreparedness for the May 24 general election, which he believes his incumbent Democratic Labour Party will win.
“I learnt only today that they have not yet made up their minds as to whether Colonel Bostic would be the candidate for The City or the candidate for St Michael South. I hope that they resolve that issue as soon as possible for their sake and for his too,” Stuart told reporters after he and other DLP candidates paid in their $250 election deposits into the Treasury this morning.
Up to 9 p.m. this evening none of the BLP hierarchy could be reached for comment on the matter, with Executive Assistant to the Leader of the Opposition Pat Parris promising that a statement would be made tomorrow.
