MIA?MOTTLEY? is back!
After being ousted in 2010 as Leader of the Opposition, she was returned to that position yesterday reportedly in a majority vote of 8-5 by her parliamentary colleagues.
Reports indicated that the vote was done by secret ballot after a very intense and lengthy debate among the group which at times got very heated, according to inside sources.
Former Opposition Leader Owen Arthur, whom the parliamentary group favoured over Mottley, after she had been  handed the baton when the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) lost the election in 2008, received the five votes. He was noticeably absent from yesterday’s four-hour long meeting at BLP?headquarters,?Roebuck Street,?St Michael.
After the meeting, representative for St George North, Gline Clarke, who was appointed secretary of the parliamentary group, announced to the media that Mottley had been elected the new leader.
