Amidst billboard destruction, ABEC officer decries level to which campaign has sunk

6

The Antigua and Barbuda Electoral Commission (ABEC) is displeased with the level of campaigning now taking place, especially as it relates to the vandalism of billboards and other election paraphernalia.

This malicious activity appears to be becoming more prevalent, with the major political parties laying blame at each other’s feet for the destruction of materials.

Ian Hughes, the human resource and training officer with ABEC, says the Commission has held talks with the Police in an effort to bring this type of behaviour to a halt.

Hughes is also appealing to members of the public not to get caught up in this illegal act, since all ideas must contend.

Meanwhile, Hughes was asked whether he is concerned about the safety of the Commission’s staff during this election period.

He explains that there are security personnel in place to accompany workers, especially during evening outings and on Election Day, itself.

The human resource and training officer says there is no need for campaigning at this level since we all have to live here after the elections are completed.

According to Hughes, “This too shall pass.”

  3. @ Really. There are two groups of foreigners livng in Antigua – the straight hair ones and the wolly hair ones. I have a belief that you fall in the latter group. Why? Because the other group comes here, shut DEM mouth and do what they have to do to exist.AND they are loved and respected by ALP, UPP and DNA – all of them being ANTIGUANS. The other group – not much, and this is the reason. We dip into the ANTIGUAN people business. I hope you are not delusional into believing that ALP, DNA, QZR or RLL that include ANTIGUANS, actually love you the wolly hair foreigner. You kyant want come in ah man country and criticise he brother.
