Problems in Solutions Barbados

Problems in Solutions Barbados
26 Apr

Issues of integrity and accountability are at the center of a dispute within one of the country's newest parties.

According to reports, the dispute led to candidates threatening to resign.

In a recent interview, the leader of that party revealed the party is engaging in robust dialogue to ensure they serve the citizens of Barbados better, if they're elected.

Leader of Solutions Barbados, Grenville Phillips over the weekend was threatened with resignation letters from some of the party's candidates for the upcoming general election.

A source close to the party confirmed the news indicating that the problems stem from a clause in a contract which the party leader required candidates to sign.

According to the source, one of the demands of the document is a promise from members of the party, to refrain from joining any other political movements in Barbados.

In an interview, the party leader confirmed there had been a disagreement within the party.

Grenville Phillips is refusing to reveal the specific details of the contract, but says at the heart of the issue is the need for integrity and accountability from candidates.

The party currently has a slate of twenty candidates for the next general election.

The party is running on an anti-austerity campaign which strongly opposes the International Monetary Fund.

Its leaders are promising to curb reckless spending, corruption and reduce taxes.

However, before any of that, the party leader says candidates must hold themselves to a high standard
