Stephen Lashley, who has been elected as Democratic Labour Party (DLP) spokesman for the election campaign, has refuted claims by Barbados Labour Party leader Mia Mottley that the May 24 elections will be a hindrance to exams being sat that same day. 

Lashley was speaking at a DLP news conference earlier today and said that both the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) and the Electoral and Boundaries Commission were consulted before the announcement of the date. 

He also noted that this would be the third time that a general election coincided with the sitting of exams, and said that according to their research hardly any CXC students of voting age would be affected. (NationNews)
