Will PM Barrow Step Down Before November 2020?

Patrick Faber

Prime Minister Barrow’s departure from office ahead of his retirement from electoral politics in November 2020 has been announced on previous occasions; however, a definitive timeline is yet to be made public.  While it was previously stated that he would step down several months before the upcoming general elections to allow for his successor to take over the reins of power on an interim basis, that plan has since been scrapped.  The question now, is whether P.M. Barrow will ride out the entirety of his final term.

 

Reporter

“In your opinion, is it, based on what the prime minister has said in the past, do you expect his departure to be imminent or within a reasonable time so his successor can…”

 

Patrick Faber, Area Representative, Collet

“Listen, we’re not going to make trouble, the prime minister has a right to stay in office up until the end of this current term of the UDP and it is his decision solely to decide when that is going to be the case.  So the best man for you to ask that question is the prime minister himself.”

 

Reporter

“Finally sir, where do you stand now on the Joshua Perdomo issue?  Reports say that you were scolded in the Cabinet for your forthright statement that you wouldn’t support it.”

 

Patrick Faber

“The matter has sailed.  We know what the Cabinet’s position is.  You know that I am a part of the Cabinet and I am bound to that collective responsibility of the Cabinet so you’re making mischief.”
