PM: Your duty to vote


PRIME MINISTER FREUNDEL STUART is concerned that some Barbadians are taking their right to vote for granted.
Speaking during an event to officially open the new constituency office for the Democratic Labour Party’s (DLP) Christ Church West candidate Verla DePeiza at Forde’s Road, Stuart said it was worrying to see that some young people in particular were not fully appreciating the sacrifice that was made to ensure they can vote today.
“We have to take the right to vote seriously. Do not waste your right to vote . . . It did not always exist. Understand that voting is a political obligation that was fought for.
“I am a little concerned that too few young people know where they have come from and take some of the privileges that they now enjoy for granted,” he said.  (RMB)
