Mia Mottley led BLP wins all 30 seats again in Barbados

15

Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley created history once again with a second consecutive 30-0 victory at the polls.

Mottley dismissed the challenge of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) under the leadership of Verla De Peiza, while the emerging parties, including the coalition Alliance Party for Progress led by former Opposition Leader Bishop Joseph Atherley, did not make much of an impact with the electorate.

From the earliest boxes, it was clear that the incumbents would be hard to dislodge.

Even those seats which were being closely watched turned out to be nothing more than a momentary blip.

The DLP’s Michael Lashley briefly held a lead in St Philip North, but incumbent Dr Sonia Browne made a decisive surge to beat him. Similarly, what initially appeared to be a close challenge between Dr David Estwick and newcomer Kay McConney in St Philip West, also petered out.

De Peiza conceded defeat after her own race proved to be a non-contest against Peter Phillips in St Lucy and promised the DLP would speak later on the result.

  1. Well done Mia. She is such a look a like like Ms Isaac from the UPP. First we had Pierre in St Lucia who is the splitting image of Lovell and now Mia and Giselle.

  2. If the Voice of the People is the Voice of God why am I hearing in some quarters that this is not good for democracy.

  3. Congratulations Barbados Labour Party. And in particular Mia Motley led her party once again to a clean sweep. That is history in the making.
    Now this is a warning for the UPP of about what is to come. Last time you got away with one seat. This time you won’t be getting away at all.

  4. @. Its not true. If the voice of the people is the voice of God, then why is there preferential treatment for the people that aligned with the Government of the day? If the voice of the people is the voice of God, then why is there abuse of power and encouragement to belittle others. The voice of the people is simply what it is, the voice of the people

  5. Gaston forced vaccines on thousands of people who did not want them. Mia did not do that. It is going to be interesting to see how those forced vaccinations affect the next election. Many people still sour about the vaccine mandates and many others still suffering economically from the pandemic. Interesting times.

  6. Another victory for social democracy and Black democratic socialism. The Barbados Labour Party was an early member of the Socialist International, where their roots are to be found.
