DLP Campaign Manager frowns on manifesto leaking
Robert 'Bobby' Morris at the DLP headquarters in George Street
Robert ‘Bobby’ Morris wants Barbadians to ponder all the actions of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) candidates on and off the political platform ahead of the election next week, and vote accordingly.
Speaking today to Loop News after the Leader of the BLP, Mia Mottley pulled a copy of the blue and yellow DLP Manifesto 2018 out of her red bag at their meeting in Clevedale last night ahead of the DLP’s official manifesto launch, he said that he would not have done such had he been in her position and the roles reversed.
Aware that the Leader of the Opposition was caught in the act of displaying a copy of the DLP manifesto, he said:
“We have no knowledge of how she was able to get that copy, but we can categorically say that it was not from the Democratic Labour Party’s management but this is all in keeping with what we have seen in terms of public documents.”
He said that over the years, this has happened before with “documents from the Cabinet, from cooperation’s being used [and] from Ministry files and so on, being used with kind of pride suggesting I can get any of the documents that I want.”
He said that this is more than an issue of leaking a book of policies and promises from the ruling party, it highlights the issues of leadership and integrity.
Morris urged, “We are saying that the elections are about the soul of Barbados, fighting for the integrity of leadership and fighting for our country!
“Ponder on all of these things and vote wisely.”
The Campaign Manager for the DLP was speaking to Loop News at their headquarters in George Street, St. Michael this afternoon.
