The Antigua and Barbuda Electoral Commission (ABEC) on Wednesday met with a delegation from the United Progressive Party (UPP) upon its request, to discuss several areas of concern raised by the party.
The four-member delegation comprised of Former Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer, Chairperson of the United Progressive Party, D. Giselle Issac, General Secretary Senator Shawn Nicholas and Mr. Alister Thomas.
Among the main areas discussed were: the late publication of the Register of Electors, the location of Registration Units outside of the Constituency, the conditions for persons who wish to register after becoming citizens as a result of the Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIP) and the transfer process.
ABEC’s Chairman, Mr. Nathaniel Paddy James, said that the meeting was productive.
He emphasized that the same gesture will be extended to the other political parties.
