Barbados Labour Party Wins All 30 Seats
By: T. Chapman
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.
