Dame Sandra Mason to become Barbados’ first president


Members of Barbados’ House of Assembly and Senate have overwhelmingly elected Dame Sandra Mason to become Barbados’ first president on November 30, 2021.

Dame Sandra, who is the current Governor General, will move from representing Queen Elizabeth II, to replacing her as Barbados’ Head of State.

The House voted 27-0 while the Senate voted 18-0.

There was one unreturned ballot in the Senate as Caswell Franklyn voiced objection to the process and walked out of the historic meeting at Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.

Prime Minister Mia Mottley and Opposition Leader Bishop Joseph Atherley had jointly nominated Dame Sandra to be president.

Just imagine going forward with a Republic without a referendum 30 people deciding for 250000 as a old Bajan saying goes ( u could like it or lump it ) Barbados Pm is a despot they were warned by the late Owen Arthur but didn’t take heed so now paying the price Barbados Pm is a DYKE and a BULLY like most Caribbean pm’s at this time.
