‘It’s dire’


Share post:

Opposition Leader Owen?Arthur has broken his silence on the publicized rift within the Democratic Labour Party (DLP), saying that it has become a national issue that may need to be settled by Barbadians going back to the polls.
Although hesitant to get involved in what he said was initially an internal party matter, Arthur said the situation had reached “a stage of such dire national significance” that he could no longer remain silent.
The Barbados Labour Party (BLP) leader said the rift – alluded to in a SUNDAY SUN report that 11 DLP parliamentarians had sought an urgent audience with Prime Minister Freundel Stuart against the background of concerns about perceived weaknesses in leadership – demonstrated “a virtual collapse of Cabinet Government”.
His comments have come almost a month after the letter was made public and a little more than one year before elections are constitutionally due.
Read the full story in today’s SUNDAY SUN.
