Marshall quits BLP
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)
