THE INCUMBENT Democratic Labour Party in Barbados formally launched its re-election campaign Sunday with a big rally in Bridgetown, taking swipe at opposition leader Mia Mottley.
Most of the meeting staged ahead of the May 24 vote, focused on questioning Motley’s leadership ability.
Speakers sought to question Motley’s position on social issues.
Finance Minister, Chris Sinckler, demanded that the opposition explained where it is getting its funding from.
He also suggested that some of Motley’s economic promises simply don’t add up.
Motley’s opposition, Barbados Labour Party, launched its campaign Saturday.
In her address, Motley said issues related to transportation, problems plaguing the South Coast Sewerage Project, and free tertiary education would be solved immediately should her party win at the polls.
The BLP leader also promised that non-contributory pensions would be increased should the BLP regain the Government.
Monday is nomination day.
