President of the People's National Party (PNP) Peter Phillips has congratulated newly elected Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Amor Mottley and her Barbados Labour Party (BLP) on a historic election victory in that Eastern Caribbean nation.

 In an early morning message, Phillips said Mottley’s landslide victory signals the desire of the people of Barbados for change, renewed hope, CARICOM and a strong collective Caribbean voice in the global community.

 Mottley, who was a speaker at the PNP’s annual conference last year, becomes Barbados’ first female Prime Minister.

“A friend of the PNP, the BLP’s return to power marks a move towards governance, which is always a welcomed development that benefits all,” said Phillips.

“The PNP wishes the new government success as it takes on board the expectations of the people of Barbados and strives to improve the lives of the majority of its people,” added Phillips.
