Supporters split over Mia, Owen

Social Share

Some are shouting support for Mia Mottley Mottley, while others are for Owen Arthur.
A handful of supporters are now at the Barbados Labour Party headquarters at Roebuck Street, St Michael where a meeting is set to come off in the next 45 minutes to determine the leadership of the party.
The meeting is scheduled for 2 p.m.
Our team of John Sealy and Sandy Pitt are on the spot where BLP members George Payne, Ronald Toppin, Gline Clarke and Dale Marshall, the deputy opposition leader turned up at 1 p.m.
Up to that time former Prime Minister Owen Arthur was not at party headquarters. 
The Nation reported today that six of the nine BLP parliamentary members have opted to switch their allegiance from Mottley to former Prime Minister Owen Arthur making him the new Leader of the Opposition.
