The World

May 28, 1986

The Caribbean island of Barbados, a participant in the U.S.-led invasion of Grenada in 1983, holds legislative elections today, with late polls putting the ruling party slightly behind. Prime Minister Bernard St. John's Barbados Labor Party has faced a strong challenge from the Democratic Labor Party of Errol Barrow, a former prime minister. St. John wants to strengthen U.S. ties, but Barrow is a critic of the Grenada invasion. The 27-member Assembly elected today will choose the prime minister for the next five years.
