No word from DLP in response to Senate offer


Share post:

There was no clear indication yesterday as to whether the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) will be taking up the offer of two seats in the Senate.

Some of the party’s defeated candidates met yesterday at the party’s George Street, Belleville, St Michael headquarters for a number of hours.

Some party officials were tight-lipped about the outcome of what decisions may have been taken.

Seeking a third consecutive term in office, the DLP did not secure a single seat in last Thursday’s General Election, going down 30-0 to the Barbados Labour Party and in the process creating a Parliament without an official Opposition.

Since then, Prime Minister Mia Mottley announced that the defeated party with the highest number of votes would be allocated the two seats in the Senate which are traditionally taken up by the official Opposition. (ES)
