Mia Mottley led her Barbados Labour Party (BLP) to a second consecutive sweep of all 30 parliamentary seats in General Elections held Wednesday 19 January 2022.
Seven political parties, including the main opposition Democratic Labour Party (DLP) under new leader, Attorney, Verla De Peiza, contested the elections, called some 18 months ahead of the constitutional deadline. There were also nine Independent candidates.
In her victory speech early Thursday morning, the Prime Minister-elect thanked Barbadians for embracing the BLP’s election slogan “Stay the Course”.
Ms Mottley and Attorney-General-designate Dale Marshall will be sworn in today, and the rest of the Cabinet on Monday.
