2:14am DLP – Democratic Labour Party retains government
DLP – 16 seats BLP – 14 seats * Recounts possible in some areas
Independent candidates a washout. Voters return the DLP/BLP single party government to office. More to come!
VERY CLOSE ELECTION – One contest decided by 10 votes!
We’ve already said that it doesn’t really matter who wins this election because with only two corrupt political parties to choose between: Bajans have already lost.
Obviously memories of the BLP’s legendary corruption under Owen Arthur are still in the public consciousness – while the realisation of DLP corruption has not quite sunk in.
We know where this election takes us… Nowhere
