Mia optimistic on Polling Day

The heavy numbers at the polls mean a lot to Opposition Leader, Mia Mottley.

When the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) leader arrived to cast her vote at the Eden Lodge Primary School this afternoon, she was asked by reporters if the early morning rush to polling stations was a good sign for the country’s oldest political party.

“We’ve achieved our objectives pretty much over the last three weeks,” she told reporters.

“The truth is in this campaign we tried to run against ourselves and about what we thought the country needs. If Barbadians vote according to what is best for Barbados, then we should emerge victorious.”

Mottley was heartened by the early turn-out numbers, saying it appeared the country couldn’t wait to get out and vote for a way forward, after a tough ten years under the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) administration.

“I want to thank Barbadians for heeding our call to come out early in their numbers. There has been a lot of passion on the part of people, for this country. People feel in most instances this is the most significant election in Barbados since independence and will determine the direction of our country,” the BLP leader suggested. (BA)
