Kay Bacchus- Baptiste confirmed as NDP’s West St George candidate


Kay R A Bacchus-Baptiste has been ratified as the candidate to represent the New Democratic Party (NDP) in the constituency of West St George in the next general elections.

A release from the party said Bacchus-Baptiste, having been selected on the constituency level, was unanimously ratified by the Central Committee of the NDP.

“The Party welcomes Mrs Bacchus-Baptiste as a great representative of the people,” a release from the NDP said.

Commenting on the ratification, president Dr Godwin Friday said, “The people of West St George have chosen well. Kay is someone they can trust to work hard and deliver for them and the country. I know that she will work endlessly, not just for the people in West St George, but also to ensure that we fulfill our vision of creating a country that works for all.

“We should never lose sight of the fact that we are one nation, one people, one Vincy!”

Bacchus-Baptiste expressed her delight at being given the opportunity to represent the West St George constituency, noting that she has “a vision of breaking barriers – building the future.”

“When I think of barriers, I mean unemployment of youths in West St George, poor roads in the constituency, and most of this because the constituency is plagued with a lazy representative and a government that doesn’t care,” Bacchus-Baptiste was quoted as saying in the release.

As to her activities since ratification, she declared “I have hit the ground running; I’ve been on walkabouts in the constituency, and I’ve also had a town hall meeting on Thursday, October 5th. My approach is not to sit in my office and fool myself that I know what the people want, but rather to go out and meet them, find out from them the issues in their communities and together we develop solutions.”

Kay Bacchus-Baptiste is a lawyer by profession.
