Mottley makes provision for two Opposition Senators

In the absence of an official Opposition, Prime Minister Mia Mottley today announced that an amendment is to be made to the Barbados Constitution to make provision for the appointment of two Opposition Senators.

And based on its performance in the May 24 poll, those two senatorial positions are being offered to the Democratic Labour Party, as the political party which mustered the second highest number of votes in the just concluded poll in which Mottley's Barbados Labour Party (BLP) was swept to power after capturing all 30 seats in Parliament.

Following consultations with Governor General Dame Sandra Mason today, Mottley said that in the event the DLP chooses not to take up the offer of the two Senate seats, the Governor General, acting in accordance with her advice as Prime Minister, would proceed to appoint two other representatives to the Upper Chamber.

Today, Mottley also announced a 30-member Cabinet team headed by herself, as well as a 12-member Government senatorial team, headed by BLP elder and Queen's Counsel Sir Richard Cheltenham, who is to serve as President of the Senate.
