The Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party has described the Barbuda’s Peoples Movement walk out of yesterday’s Barbuda Council meeting as disgraceful.
It’s not the first time the BPM has done this; and the PRO of the Barbuda Council, Orlando Morris, says the opposition needs to stop its antics so that the Council can get on with its work.
The BPM staged the protest when the Council Chairman reached the agenda item of the appointment of a Senator for Barbuda.
The opposition wants to be consulted before a candidate is decided on, but Morris says the BPM wants something that it has never given.
The BPM had written to the Chairwoman of the Barbuda Council asking for a meeting to discuss appointment.
However, leader of the Barbuda People’s Movement, Trevor Walker says the party is not prepared to make a decision until there is a discussion first.
Walker says the BPM’s position is that the Barbuda Council will operate with 10 members until a clear mandate is given, in the next council elections which are due in 2019.
