PM on the attack


Share post:

PRIME MINISTER FREUNDEL STUART has strongly rejected suggestions that his party hurt its re-election chances by boycotting the recent NATION Talkback on the election, indicating that not only did he have no apologies to make for not participating, but he had no intention of taking part in any such initiatives organized by the newspaper.
The Democratic Labour Party (DLP) leader, among speakers who targeted THE NATION at last night’s joint meeting of the ruling party’s St James branches at Queen’s College, Husbands, St James, said while neither he nor any party representative attended last Wednesday’s town hall meeting on the topic The Next General Election – Who Should Run The Affairs Of The Country?, the DLP was engaging with voters on its own terms.
In his first public reaction to the criticism heaped on the party for not being represented at the event to interact with the public, Stuart said he had no intention of being part of what he described as “an unofficial Barbados Labour Party [BLP] meeting”.
“The nonsense I’m hearing suggests that only the people who assembled at Sherbourne are going to vote here, so unless you go and see them you’ve done yourself some kind of political damage,” said Stuart at the school hall packed with DLP?supporters.
