Candidates for St. John
David Thompson - DLP
If there's such a thing as a safe seat, then I strongly believe Opposition Leader David Thompson's St. John seat is it. Constituents in that parish have been unfailingly loyal to the Democratic Labour Party for decades, and there's no sign that they plan to change any time soon. Chalk up one seat for the DLP.
Tyrone Power - BLP
I won't be so bold as to say that Agriculturalist Tyrone Power doesn't have a chance in hell of winning the St. John seat. I'd say his chances are as good as Peter Phillip's in St. Lucy or Haynesley Benn's in St. Peter and leave it at that.
