REAL NEWS – Harold Lovell is challenging Prime Minister Gaston Browne to substantiate – with facts and figures – his claim to be Antigua and Barbuda’s best-performing leader since Independence.
Browne made the declaration last Friday, October 6, during what has been described as a “rant” while campaigning in Bolans.
Lovell says he has never witnessed anything like Browne’s tirade, by any other leader within the Caribbean, and believes that Browne is dealing with some personal issues.
However he is challenging the prime minister to show what he has actually done, apart from announcing projects that have not materialized.
He notes that the Browne Administration has announced over 30 projects that have not gotten off the ground and that one of its biggest boasts, the YIDA Development – has flopped.
Lovell points to the more than half-dozen hotel projects undertaken and completed during his own tenure as tourism minister, as well as the construction of more than 40 small, locally owned hotels.
According to Lovell, the lone hotel development generated by the Browne Administration – the PLH Project on Barbuda – cannot compare to what the United Progressive Party (UPP) achieved while in office.
He notes that, under Browne, no headway has been made in manufacturing.
And within the agriculture sector, all the prime minister has achieved is the destruction of the Cades Bay Pineapple Farm.
