FLEARY ENDS SPECULATIONS

FLEARY ENDS SPECULATIONS

The National Democratic Congress has been dealt a major blow as its last candidate to contest this twin isle constituency, has now thrown his support behind the New National Party to the extent that he is a member of the executive.

This has now put months of speculation to bed as Randolph Harrison Fleary, has been unanimously elected to help steer the party to victory at the next general elections.

Fleary, who enjoyed a following at the last general elections, which was won by Elvin Nimrod, is being seen as a significant asset to the New National Party, which is set to present female attorney at law Kindra Mathurine Stewart as its next candidate.

The former schoolteacher who retired a couple years ago is one of the most popular cultural icons on the sister isles.

He is the founder and leader of one of the island’s string bands, an ace violinist and is always visible at several social events.  Mr Fleary is currently the chairperson of the Hillsborough Beausejour and Prospect-Hall Maroon Committee.

The confirmation of his joining the New National party seems to have rocked certain members of the National Democratic Congress.

“This is a blow to us as we were hoping to use him on the campaign trail as we go deeper into the process.

In cricket terms, this is like another international team taking Chris Gayle from the West Indies for a T20 tournament,” said a senior supporter of the National Democratic Congress.

Mr Fleary is expected to play a pivotal role in the campaign especially in his community, A06 (where the Hillsborough Government School is the polling station), which has proven to be the Achilles heel of the New National Party in recent elections. 

Mr Fleary who also operates a small but popular shop in Hillsborough is expected to begin knocking the doors of the electorate soon, as he seeks to extend the National Democratic Congress’s long losing streak in this twin isle constituency.
