TWO OF BARBADOS’ noted political scientists are on opposite sides of the fence when it comes to Barbados ever having a fixed date for general elections. For Dr George Belle, it’s a case of if it isn’t broke, then don’t fix it. For Peter Wickham, it’s an entirely reasonable concept which he supports. The case for Barbados having a fixed election date or even setting political terms for the head of Government has risen again because Prime Minister Freundel Stuart is yet to deliver an election date to the people, even though his first-time Government’s five-year tenure effectively concluded January 15. The Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) continues to press Stuart to call the election, and went as far as boycotting Parliament last week.
