Nomination Day for the by-election in St. George North is Monday, October 26, while the election day will be Wednesday, November 11.
This disclosure came this evening from Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley during an after Cabinet press conference, at the Barbados Defence Force. She said the writ had been signed by Governor General Dame Sandra Mason.
Ms. Mottley stated that this was an unusual election because it was coming in the middle of the global COVID-19 pandemic and urged Barbadians not to drop their guard and to canvass in sensible ways.
“We hope that persons will…cooperate, be sensible and recognise that we have a constitutional responsibility to fill the seat in Parliament but we also can do so in a way that does not put people at risk in any way,” she stressed.
