Prime Minister Freundel Stuart says he has no regrets about the formation of Constituency Councils just over five years ago.

In fact, the country’s leader says he is proud of the work done by the council in the St Michael South Constituency, which he represents, in spite of criticisms by members of the Barbados Labour Party.

“I have no regrets at all about the creation of these constituency councils. I have no regrets at all about the impact which their existence has been

making on the lives of our young people,” he said last night at the biannual town hall meeting of the St Michael South Constituency Council.

He added, “Constituency Councils are here to stay. Those who want to continue to abuse them are free to do so but the abuse is not going to weaken the Government’s resolve in relation to constituency empowerment, this is not DLP constituency empowerment, this is constituency empowerment across Barbados.”

The prime minister said the apparent weakening of communities was discussed on Thursday by members of Cabinet.

He attributed this to the decision by some people who have “done well for themselves” to move to other communities.

“The determination is to make sure that our communities are strengthened, that our constituencies are strengthened so that they can get on with the work of doing things for themselves as far as possible and depending less and less on Central Government…,” the prime minister added.

    No regrets? The biggest regret for the citizens of Barbados was voting for Pinocchio and the professional clowns.

    “YES THERE’S A PLACE FOR THE COUNCILS”
    As a fair,person, I do believe that there’s a place for the councils,as the pm.stated,like local government,but if local government is to be a part of governance,then let’s have elections an budget for that purpose, many years ago we did have local government but your party abolished it remember Mr.pm.As Mr.Barrow couldn’t win the city seat from Mr Mottley
    so your people say if yuh cah tek mottley from de city we gine tek de city from he an Barrow abolished local government,now you realise that there’s a place yes I agree but what is functioning needs to be upgraded ,I believe that the real function should be to hear the needs of the people of the community an present them to have them fast forward.

    For someone who demonstrates such detachment from the everyday trials of fellow Barbadians, coupled with his amazing propensity for self deception, while speaking in such insulting often nebulous terms to his own countrymen I would be surprised if he did.
