“The Democratic Labour Party extends condolences to the family of former Prime Minister Owen Arthur and to the entire country of Barbados.
“As the longest-serving leader, who presided over a period of expansion for Barbados, he deserves his place rightfully alongside other noted nation-builders.

“May his soul rest in peace.” (PR)
