PRIME MINISTER Freundel Stuart  may end up with  a “constitutional crisis” on his hands if he  does not call a general election soon. Opposition Leader  Owen Arthur issued this warning during a Press conference his Barbados Labour Party held  at its headquarters  on Roebuck Street,  St Michael yesterday. Arthur, who reported that the BLP was now fine-tuning its 2013 manifesto, complained that even though the Democratic Labour Party had entered a sixth year in office, “there is  no clarity as to when  an election is going  to be called”. The failure to call  an election “is assuming the dimensions of  a moral issue as well . . . [and] it could trigger  a constitutional crisis  in Barbados if certain matters are not resolved”, he told reporters during  a briefing attended  by former ministers Mia Mottley, Dale Marshall and Clyde Mascoll.
