Marshall quits BLP

Social Share

Former Cabinet Minister Rommel Marshall resigned from  the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) Thursday, mere hours away  from threatened expulsion.
Marshall’s resignation letter came less than 24 hours after  he had submitted an email to the Opposition party asking for an adjournment of a disciplinary matter which was scheduled  to be heard the same day by  the party’s National Council.
The correspondence, which was rejected by the General Council, said in part: “I am unable to attend such meeting on the given date and am asking that you use your good offices to grant a postponement.  I will make sure I am not travelling again on the expected new date.”
But the governing body said  it was not minded to grant Marshall’s request and in a response letter advised he would  be informed of their decision.  (TS)
