Barbuda Council no closer to naming a senator


The Barbuda Council is no closer to a compromise on appointing a Senator than it was two months ago.

In June, the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party, ABLP and the Barbuda Peoples Movement, BPM could not agree on who to appoint.

The BPM asked the ABLP led council to sit down for consultation who should represent the Council in the Senate.

But the Barbuda Council Chairman Knacynta Nedd, says those discussions have not happened as yet.

The BPM has an equal number of seats on the Council to the ruling ABLP and is asking for fair consideration of its wishes for who should get the position.

But Nedd says the ABLP is seeking to get around the need to consult with the BPM outside of Council proceedings.

OBSERVER media did call several BPM council members but calls were not answered up to the time of this broadcast.
