THIS YEAR — 2017– is the 10th anniversary year of the publication in booklet form of the Peoples Empowerment Party (PEP) proposal for the establishment of an elected SYSTEM OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT based on 30 elected Constituency Councils. When the Democratic Labour Party came to power in 2008 they took hold of the PEP proposal, gutted it of any meaningful content, and proceeded to implement a highly partisan bastardized version of what the PEP had proposed.
I believe that the PEP concept of elected local constituency-based government holds the key to solving many of the problems that are currently plaguing communities all across Barbados.
The PEP booklet entitled BAJANS ! TAKE BACK YOUR GOVERNMENT is attached hereto.
