Barbados News Alert

Parliamentary elections to take place in Barbados on Thursday, May 24

TIMEFRAME expected from 4/27/2018, 12:00 AM until 5/25/2018, 11:59 PM (America/Barbados). COUNTRY/REGION Barbados

Event

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart has announced that parliamentary elections will be held on Thursday, May 24. Parties will nominate their candidates on May 7, after which campaigning will begin. Protests and rallies are possible in the coming weeks, although unrest or violence is unlikely.

Context

The parliament has been dissolved since March 6, following the end if its five-year tenure. While the dissolution occurred as scheduled, it was unusual that no election date had been set and this led to increased political tensions.

Advice

Individuals in Barbados are advised to avoid protests and political rallies as a precaution, as well as polling stations on election day.
