Political party's may only be officially launching their general election campaigns this weekend, but election fever was sizzling in Barbados for some time now. 

This has been evident as candidates hit the airwaves and canvassed constituencies, as their parties host various events to get their message across. One of the more prominent events was the recent Heroes Day picnic by the Barbados Labour Party (BLP), which attracted much discusses after the event, not just for its content, but for its trash

And as many persons get ready to go to the polls on May 24, the appointment of over 600 temporary workers, as well as the bleak economic forecast for Barbados during last week have added to the debate.

Despite the greatly political related articles which dominated news over the past seven days, Rihanna also eased her way into the top stories you read during last week, with crime and violence also making an impact.

Here is a look at the top 5 articles from last week.

(1) Unintimidated! City candidate Natalie Harewood chooses purple
