All committees of the Barbuda Council have been appointed but the most contentious issue of the nomination of a senator was struck from yesterday’s agenda at the request of the Barbuda Peoples Movement (BPM).
According to Councilman and BPM Political Leader, Trevor Walker, his faction would “not entertain a vote on selecting a senator” before there were discussions with the Antigua & Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP) on the nominee.
The individual who is appointed to the post of senator will also hold the eleventh seat on the Barbuda Council – which is presently split with five BPM members and five ABLP members.
Our newsroom made calls to ABLP Councilman and Member of Parliament (MP) for Barbuda Arthur Nibbs as well as the Chairman of the Barbuda Council Knacyntar Nedd – also an ABLP council member – but neither responded.
