BARBADIAN OPPOSITION LEADER REACTS TO ELECTION RESULTS FROM ST. KITTS & NEVIS: MIA MOTTLEY SUGGESTS DENZIL DOUGLAS FACE MUSIC AND DANCE ACCORDINGLY
While the result is to be formally determined, this is a process that started 2 years ago. And the apparent outcome is testimony to what people coming together for the right reasons can accomplish.
We must do so in a timely manner for this region to remain a beacon of democracy. Our people demand it of us and we, as leaders must not fail them.
These events also reinforce the need for a mechanism for CARICOM, and indeed the OECS, to ensure that the rights of our citizens are not frustrated.
We need to re-look the role of these institutions and the treaties which are signed in the name of our people, like the Charter of Civil Society, but which far too often have been ineffective in dealing with the real problems that our people and institutions face.
- Mia Amor Mottley Q.C., M.P.
LEADER OF BARBADOS’ OPPOSITION
