Barbadian politician Bishop Joseph Atherley has made a stunning political move by crossing the floor to become a member of the Opposition party.
Despite successfully claiming the St Michael West seat in the recent General Elections for the ruling Barbados Labour Party, Atherley has tendered his resignation from the party in a letter addressed to Prime Minister, Mia Mottley.
