‘Youth, women’s arm need overhaul’
OPPOSITION Member of Parliament (MP) Lieutenant Colonel Jeffrey Bostic has called for “a complete overhaul” of the youth and women’s arms of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) to make them “more relevant” to the times.
“There is absolutely no connection between the Women’s League and women in the constituency and a similar thing with the League of Young Socialists,” Bostic, MP for the City of Bridgetown, complained yesterday evening while addressing the monthly meeting of the BLP’s St James North constituency branch at St Alban’s Primary School.
He said he would like “some young person from each constituency to sit with the League of Young Socialists and some females from each constituency with the Women’s League”.
He told the gathering, which included MP for the constituency Edmund Hinkson, the party needed to tackle both categories of voters if it was going to win the next general election.
