The statement comes from Sandra Mason, Governor-General of Barbados, in her Throne Speech on Tuesday.
She apprised that country will become a republic by November 2021.
“The time has come to fully leave our colonial past behind. Barbadians want a Barbadian Head of State, she told while reading a speech written by Prime Minister Mia Mottley.
She further added, “This is the ultimate statement of confidence in who we are and what we are capable of achieving".
Dame Sandra also added Barbados will take the next logical step toward full sovereignty and become a Republic by the time we celebrate our 55th Anniversary of Independence.
