The Democratic National Alliance (DNA) congratulates the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) and Prime Minister-Elect, Mia Amor Mottley, for another historic and unprecedented victory at the polls on January 19th, 2022.

The mandate given to the BLP is an affirmation of the type of governance and leadership style which Mottley brought to the country since 2018.

However, the DNA cautions that democracy is usually weakened when there is no Parliamentary opposition and encourages PM Mottley to continue to govern in the interest of all Barbadians.

DNA President, Joanne Massiah, opined, “since there is no Parliamentary opposition, it will be critical for PM Mottley to pay keen attention to the voices and opinions of those outside of the echo chamber of the Cabinet to ensure that in these challenging times, diverse views are allowed to contend as she makes critical social and economic decisions to advance the interests of the citizens and residents of the Republic of Barbados.”
