Antigua & Barbuda General Elections set for January 18

By: Staff Reporter,

    BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - AFTER months of murmur, the people of Antigua and Barbuda now know the date that they will vote for a government to lead the twin-island nation for the next five years.


    The incumbent Prime Minister, Gaston Browne, during a launch of party candidates at the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party’s Headquarters last evening (Dec. 19), announced that January 18th is the date the people would vote in the next General Elections. 


    PM Browne also disclosed that the Governor-General would issue the Writ today, while Nomination Day would be on Wednesday, December 18.


    The opposition parties - the United Progressive Party (UPP) and the Democratic National Alliance (DNA) - have been working over the last several months to put together their slate of candidates while campaigning to win votes. 


    They were using their allies to pressure the Browne-ABLP Administration  to announce a date for elections.


    Browne took the opportunity during his speech last evening to chastise the UPP, describing the Party as having “criminals elements” within its ranks.


    He also used the occasion to outline his Party’s successes during the last five years, from the upgrading of public infrastructure to the development of hospitals, as well as from the opening of the Polyclinic to the construction of new homes across the islands.


    The UPP leaders were expected to address the media this morning.
