Prime Minister Freundel Stuart has poured cold water on Opposition Leader Mia Mottley’s plan to turn around the economy in six weeks if the Barbados Labour Party takes up the reins of power after the upcoming general election.
It was on Saturday night at the Barbados Labour Party’s 79th annual conference that Mottley promised that six weeks after her party got elected, she would be able to bring an economic stabilisation plan to Parliament.
“I stand here to commit to you that the Barbados Labour Party Economic Team, which has been working for the last 12 months on the conditions which we face, will be in a position to present to the country the first economic stabilisation and growth plan for the people of Barbados within six weeks of being elected as the Parliament of this country,” Mottley had told party faithful on Saturday.
But Stuart, who was speaking at a Democratic Labour Party meeting of the Christ Church constituencies, entitled Leading Everyone In Christ Church at the Deighton Griffith Secondary School last night, said there was nothing that Mottley could say that the people of Barbados had not heard before.
