Barbados Labour Party (BLP) candidate for Christ Church East Wilfred Abrahams has warned Barbadians that a vote for Solutions Barbados, the Barbados Integrity Movement (BIM), the United Progressive Party (UPP), the People’s Democratic Congress (PDC), or the Bajan Free Party, is essentially a vote for the Democratic Labour Party (DLP).
“A lot is going to happen and a lot is at stake. This is not the election to stay home. I have heard people talk about a protest vote and voting for one of the other third parties,” Abrahams told those gathered at the playing field in Parish Land last night for a BLP spot meeting.
“Do not waste your vote! A vote for the third party is a vote for the DLP. A vote for any of the independents is a vote for the DLP. Do not waste your vote on somebody who does not have a chance of getting into Government because they cannot help you when times get tough.”
He said if those candidates were genuine about helping the constituents of Christ Church East, they could work with him after he is elected to be the member of parliament for the area.
“I am not crying down anybody. If the fella from the UPP has your interest at heart, then he will come forward and work with me when I become the MP,” Abrahams said to loud applause.
“If the lady from Solutions Barbados has your interest at heart, then she can step forward when I become the next MP. I am not going to spite anybody. I will take all the help from all the quarters when it comes.”
