BLP closing gap with Govt
General secretary of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) Cynthia Forde says the Opposition is gaining much ground on the Government.
She made this assessment based on the results of the CADRES poll which was carried in yesterday’s SUNDAY SUN.
She told the DAILY NATION that the BLP was not only steadily progressing, but that support for Opposition Leader Mia Mottley continued to increase, while dissatisfaction with the Government’s performance continued to grow.
“We note, however, that there is great uncertainty in the political arena, which is reflected in the high number of uncertain voters. Neither party can therefore afford to rest on its laurels. Certainly for our part, the Barbados Labour Party shall continue to focus on the issues and offer alternative solutions to the many problems affecting the country.
“We note that according to the poll, the issues of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, unemployment and the economy continue to be of concern to our people and we will keep the Government’s feet to the fire on these and other issues like CLICO,” she said.
Forde stressed that the BLP felt heartened overall by what Barbadians were saying in the poll.
“We feel they are confirming that we are going in the right direction and that they are listening to our message,” she said. (WG)
