P.U.P. Believes There’s More to the Story

The Opposition People’s United Party, like the rest of the nation, says it wants answers as to why Doctor Barnett is “being demoted,” in favour of “relatively junior” Hugo Patt.  In a release this evening, the P.U.P. reminded that according to Prime Minister Barrow, Barnett, a former Financial Secretary and vice-president at the Caribbean Development Bank, was just what was needed to tame ‘the hot bed of corruption,’ when she was first appointed in December of 2016.  Now, the P.U.P. says the P.M. must answer publicly as to why she is being moved out and warns that this critical move should not be for political showmanship and expediency rather than for efficiency and good governance. It also called for the long-promised audit report on the more than seventy million dollars in compensation payments under the tenure of disgraced former Minister Gaspar Vega.
