Former Prime Minister Dean Barrow on his influence on the UDP: ‘I earned my stripes. Helping my son’s campaign was not inappropriate’

By Benjamin Flowers: Former United Democratic Party Leader Dean Barrow feels that there was nothing wrong in using his influence to support his son Moses “Shyne” Barrow’s bid for leadership.

After casting his vote at today’s leadership convention, the media asked Barrow about the implications of using his status in the party to sway the decision of delegates; in response, Barrow questioned what was wrong with doing so.

“How is that an unfair advantage?” Barrow asked. “I earned my stripes. I served as the leader of this party for all these years, I was three-time Prime Minister. Doesn’t that entitle me to call in whatever chips I may have in support of my son?”

Reports are that Shyne’s opponent, Albert Division Area Representative Tracy Taegar Panton, had voiced concerns that Dean Barrow was too involved in the campaign leading up to the convention, but Barrow said that it is just the nature of politics.
