Former Prime Minister Owen Arthur today handed in his letter of resignation to the Opposition Barbados Labour Party with immediate effect.
Arthur has called it quits from the party he led for over 15 years after recent public disagreements with his successor Mia Mottley.
However, the St Peter representative has made it clear that he is not giving up on active politics.
He arrived at BLP Headquarters on Roebuck Street at 11:10 a.m. to hand in his resignation.
He told Barbados TODAY the party has lost its way and its soul and is in danger of becoming a “megalomania” party.
He intends to continue serving his constituents as an independent member of the House of Assembly.
