Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley has warned voters about not supporting the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) and ending up with a Democratic Labour Party Government.

She was speaking on a platform mounted to endorse the BLP’s City of Bridgetown candidate Corey Lane on Monday night.

In calling the elections last Boxing Day, she had said she needed the country to unite behind one leader and she reiterated that to party supporters.

Quoting the BLP’s campaign song that instructs voters not to “stand home vex” but to give her the “x”, Mottley told online viewers and those in person that she was “breaking it down” for them.

“You know them ain’t ready yet, but I talking about us. What I need from you, what my team needs from you, is a proper mandate . . . . We need people to come out . . . you can’t take no chances. You gine play that you vex wid somebody and end up with a hangman’s noose around your neck if the Dems win. I never see such foolishness in my life. (AC)
