Dwayne George has thanked residents of St Mary’s South, who voted for him during his failed attempt to be the constituency’s representative in Antigua and Barbuda’s House of Representatives, for their support in yesterday’s by-election.
George, who contested the seat on an Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP) ticket, received 891 votes while incumbent MP Kelvin Simon received 1,065 votes to win the by-election.
Simon’s margin of victory was smaller than what he received in the January 18, 2023 General Election.
In a Facebook post, George, who is a former senator, said: “I respect and appreciate your decision.”
“My goal this morning is the same as it was yesterday morning, the development of our community. For over the last 20+ years and more so the last 80+ days as a candidate, it has been my privilege to work with this remarkable community, and I want you to know that my commitment remains as steadfast as ever. Today, I stand more determined than ever to continue the journey toward progress and prosperity for St Mary’s South.”
He thanked Prime Minister Gaston Browne and former St Mary’s South MP Samantha N. Marshall for support offered to him and his family during the campaign. ( LOOP)
