Caribbean 360 is reporting a no-confidence motion against the Freundel Stuart administration will be debated in Parliament today. The author writes:

“Barbados Labour Party (BLP) leader Mia Mottley said the motion, which was laid in Parliament on May 3, was prompted by the persistent crises facing the country, which she said was caused by poor governance.  It is the third no-confidence motion filed by the BLP against the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) administration DLP since it took office in 2008.”

The motion addresses the following issues in addition to others:

a.  high public sector debt; economic downturn

b.  downgrades by international credit rating firms

c.  declining investment; increase in unemployment

d.  increase in taxes

e  government’s failure to pay income, corporation and Value Added Tax refunds

f.  the administration’s lack of consultation and discussion with the public

Prime Minister Stuart has dismissed the validity of the motion.
