Recently the Prime Minister, Mia Mottley, announced the holding of elections on that date and the nomination day will be January 3 for the first general elections after the conversion of Barbados into a Republic on November 30.
Mottley claimed that she previously met with President Sandra Mason and advised her to dissolve the current parliament with immediate effect.
She also said that she made the decision to call elections because she was concerned about the division in the country, according to the Barbados Today portal.
The chief executive called on her compatriots to “unite around a common cause, a single government and a single leader.”
On the last day of November, Barbados was launched as a new Republic, after ending the remains of the colonial past and placing Sandra Mason as president and highest authority in place of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, who until then was the head of state. .
