Members of Parliament (MPs) have been told not to forget to serve the people of Barbados.
Long-standing MP for St Thomas and former Minister of People Empowerment and Elder Affairs Cynthia Forde gave that advice yesterday, after pointing out there was a perception that elected officials only cared about themselves.
“It is important that we as Members of Parliament continue to show the rest of Barbados that we are a credit to society, and that we are not out there for personal aggrandisement, that we want to drive the biggest car or build the biggest house.
“That is how we are perceived and it is so far from the truth. The majority of politicians, regardless of whatever side they are on, are there to give representation to the people,” Forde said. (TG)
