Cuba congratulates PM Barbados after general elections


Cuba congratulates PM Barbados after general elections

Havana, Jan 20 (Prensa Latina) President Miguel Díaz-Canel, and other high-ranking Cuban authorities today congratulated Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Mottley, for her victory in the general elections in that country.

On his Twitter account, the Cuban president wished Mottley success in her management, and reiterated Cuba’s will to continue strengthening ties of brotherhood and cooperation between the two nations.

Likewise, Prime Minister Manuel Marrero and Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez ratified in the social network the desire to strengthen the traditional relations of friendship, collaboration and solidarity with that island nation.

Mottley was re-elected to her position the day before, in the first general election in Barbados’ republican history.

The PLB, in which the Barbadian premier is active, managed to win the 30 seats in the House of Assembly of Parliament in those elections.

With such a result, the political formation retained all the seats in the lower house, since in the 2018 elections it also obtained 30 seats.

Barbados became a Republic on November 30, 2021, when Governor General Sandra Mason assumed the presidency of the country, thus ending the status of a parliamentary constitutional monarchy, with Queen Elizabeth II as head of state.

Mottley, who led the transition as prime minister of the Caribbean nation, is according to recent polls the political figure with the greatest support among her compatriots, and she enjoys great international prestige.
