A win for women, A change for all: The Barbados Labour Party (BLP) will form the next government, led by its first female prime minister, Mia Mottley. The Barbados Labour Party’s five year reign will come without any official opposition after a 30-0 victory, (cabinet to be appointed by Monday).

With the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) leader Freundel Stuart conceding defeat early, the celebration on Roebruck Street was in full effect.

It was at BLP’s Roebuck Street headquarters where prime minister-designate, Mia Mottley delivered her victory speech just before 4 a.m.

Mottley during her victory speech acknowledged there would be celebration but noted “it was not a time to gloat but to unite the country to take it forward”, and in doing so she reiterated her commitment to keeping the Barbados Labour Party campaign promises.

Additionally, she informed jubilant supporters that she wanted to give Barbadians a “thanksgiving celebration” this weekend.

As a result of celebrations, all schools would be closed today, while supermarkets and banks would be opened. She had advised businesses to close at 1 p.m.
