Barbados: DLP Leader Quits After Massive Election Defeat

The president of Barbados’ main opposition Democratic Labour Party (DLP), Verla De Peiza, has resigned after Wednesday’s massive election defeat to the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) of Prime Minister Mia Mottley.

Mottley’s party made a clean sweep of all 30 seats in the House of Assembly, a repeat of the BLP’s performance at the 2018 general elections.

According to Barbados Today, Interim DLP president Steve Blackett confirmed Verla De Peiza’s resignation and disclosed that she said she could not unite the party and did not ‘ignite the country.’

The DLP General Council met Friday to discuss the party’s election defeat, and the session accepted De Peiza’s decision to step down.

  1. @ Ron Faria, it’s time the UWP has a candidate with at least half a brain and elect Dr. Cladius Preville as party leader. The man is sharp and articulate. You may disagree with him but he is nothing like Lord of the lies, Chastanet.

  2. @ The Crow, you are absolutely correct but Chastanet, Lord of the lies, foolish pride and power-hungry nature are further imparing his good judgment.

  3. Politics and Religion …. two “controlling” entities. One controls the masses, the other has mass at the controls. I stay far from both.

  4. There is nothing that can correct our troubles than to have a one party state: Competition for seats would be greater, thus giving the masses more candidates to choose from. What competition does in the public sector, is to force public servants including district representatives to do their jobs or get the cowboy boot. In the public sector , competiton would automatically reduce the cost of living. (Bus fares, consumer prices) would drop depending on the level of competition. The higher the level, the greater the drop.

  5. And here we have that ignoramus Hurricane Allen abusing our ears and wars, on a daily basis, with crap news. Mate should just disappear for good from Lucian politics and go and drown his father’s business (Michael will not even let him come close).
