The United Progressive Party is asking for time to solve the ills facing Barbados should they be successful at the upcoming polls.
Candidate for St. Michael North Maria Phillips says they can bring real change, but it will not happen overnight.
She was speaking during a spot meeting in St Stephen's Hill Tuesday night.
UPP candidate for Christ Church East Central Ogeji Dottin says the talent in Barbados is immeasurable, but it needs harnessing to make an impact on the global stage.
Dottin said the framework has already been laid but a few tweaks are needed to allow Barbadians to take full advantage.
