Owen’s warning to Freundel
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.
