Former Commission Chair is asking for Jarvis to make a statement and assure the public that ABEC is election-ready

8

Former Chairman Bruce Goodwin says he is hoping the Antigua and Barbuda Electoral Commission (ABEC) is ready for the January 18 polls and can support its claim of being prepared.

Goodwin is concerned about the photo list, which, in 2009, had not been printed in time for the opening of the polls at 6 a.m. He hopes that scenario will not be repeated this time around and the register is not being printed on the morning of the election.

Therefore, he recommends that Harold Lovell, the United Progressive Party (UPP) Political Leader, should call on ABEC Chairman John Jarvis to make a public statement and guarantee that everything is fully in place for the General Election on Wednesday.

When he was a member of the Commission, Goodwin says, he ensured that everything was in place three days prior to the polls being held.

Therefore, the former chairman is, himself, calling on Jarvis to make a public announcement and assure the public that everything was in place before Sunday, January 15.   (REAL NEWS)

  1. UPP’s Bruce “XENOPHOBIC HATEFUL” Goodwin has NO CREDIBILITY!! Publicly and proudly admitting to DISCRIMINATING AGAINST STUDENTS IN CUBA. Chartering a plane and only choosing passengers to board whom he thought would vote for Trevor Walker! Bruce is morally compromised!

  2. UPP’s Bruce “XENOPHOBIC HATEFUL” Goodwin referred to CARICOME NATIONALS as “PAUPERS” especially those from Guyana and Jamaica!

  3. My goodness!What level of intelligence we have. We are always quick to hound the messenger instead of listening to the message. Bruce Goodwin’s concern is a valid one. No one wants a problem plagued election tomorrow. Would have been an excellent idea for the head of the electoral Commission to address the nation this evening assuring the public that all systems are in place and ready for an election free of hiccups. That was Bruce message and as one who preciously headed that office, it is a sound and wise admonition.

  4. The ALP used to fly persons by the plane loads into Antigua to VOTE,for them. Those who went got free round trip tickets from New York. Remember the other Antigua Airways,it lived a very,very,short life.

  5. That bearded 🤡 is a weak flip flopper. Empress give he 9 beautiful intelligent daughters, but never marry she. Took a real man to treat her right and marry her.
