Democratic Labour Party (DLP) Presidential hopeful Guy Hewitt has been formally nominated by the party’s St John Branch to contest the top post.
Hewitt made the announcement in a statement issued late Sunday night.
He said: “I see this is a significant moment for the democratic tradition upon which our great party was founded and a step towards restoring the long and important tradition of a two-party political system that has been a guardian of Barbados’ democracy.
“I want to thank the New Dawn team who are working tirelessly to advance my candidature towards rebuilding the DLP as an effective political organisation. As I have stated, this journey is not about me or even the DLP but about ‘all ah we as Bajans. It is a struggle to regain the soul of our nation.”
