Lovell says a UPP Administration will review the CIP, since viability is now threatened by the pulling of visa-free access

31

The United Progressive Party (UPP) is pledging a review of the country’s Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIP), once it is elected to office, since the programme’s viability is now threatened by a number of likely bans.

Antigua and Barbuda lost visa-free access to Canada in June 2017.  It now stands to lose similar privileges with Europe’s Schengen region because of the controversial passport programme.

Harold Lovell, UPP Political Leader, says the situation must be seriously addressed to protect the integrity of the CIP and the country on a whole.  And he accuses the Gaston Browne Administration of mismanaging the programme.

Antigua and Barbuda has since made an effort to sidestep the ultimatum from the European Union’s Parliament: that countries selling passports should do away with their citizenship by investment (CBI) programmes or lose visa-free access to the Schengen area.

The Cabinet, last Wednesday, March 16, proposed the creation of a CIP Regulatory Commission among the Caribbean countries that market their citizenship.

This Commission, according to the Cabinet Notes, “would seek to blunt the announcement that European countries are moving to block CIP states from enjoying the privileges of Schengen visa waivers.”

In addition, a decision was taken to further amend the local CIP legislation and rebrand the initiative as the “Residency and Citizenship by Investment Programme.”

Under this new thrust, persons wishing to establish residence in Antigua and Barbuda will be able to do so under conditions that are identical to the citizenship programme of the United States, Cabinet said.

This will allow applicants to retain the citizenship of their birth place and yet enjoy virtually all the benefits of the Citizenship by Investment Programme. (REAL NEWS)

      “Given the condition of the power plant, many debated whether the unit was old or new. Matthias said the more important factor is how the plant performs, and to date it has UNDERPERFORMED!!!!!!!!!!!

      While the electricity business unit manager stopped short of giving an amount, he said Antigua and Barbuda is STILL REPAYING DEBT for the plant.”

        May 3, 2014. “The Antigua and Barbuda government says it does not consider the island’s fiscal situation to be unsustainable as it responded to an International Monetary Fund (IMF) report that it is concerned that the macroeconomic performance of Antigua and Barbuda has DETERIORATED in recent times.”

        The IMF said the local economy is facing “headwinds”.

        Lovell said, while the Spencer government respects the views of the IMF, it will also make decisions independently. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 🤡 🤡 🤡

  1. Lovell when I poo my bam bam burns me. Can you promise to review the way Antiguans go off if you are elected?

    • He will. But only if you use the toilet 🚻 on the Wilmoth Daniel STRIPPER POLE BUS 🚌

      He prefers that the people forget that he registered the bus from South Korea in his name, instead of it being added to the fleet of school buses to transport our children as was intended.

      • THIS IS FOR smh

        YOU SHOULD SIT ON THE COUCH. YES THE COUCH AT ABS. BLOOD STAIN.
        WAS THERE AN ABLP MP INVOLVED

        YES, THE ABLP MP WAS ACQUITTED! BUT WHAT REALLY HAPPENED ON THE BACK SEAT ON THE CAR. EMPHASIS ON BACK SEAT
        YOU HEAR ABOUT THE THE HIGH DOG WHO PLUCKED HIS WIFE FROM THE SCHOOL SANDBOX.
        THE QUESTION IS THIS: WAS SHE UNDERAGE!
        HEY, smh who is hmmm who is really who is well, well, well one person pretending to be many people to fool himself that the ABLP is still popular.

        HEY, YOU FRAID TO COMMENT.
        COME FROM UNDER THE BED! YOU COWARD

  2. People of Antigua and Barbuda, behold the king of BADPLAY!!! Joanne Massiah can testify as can Richard Lewis…..

    “Bro. Harold Lovell told me he was done with elective politics and ask me if I would lead the UPP. In a subsequent conversation, he even suggested who I could consult as my deputy. I was deeply honored by Bro. Harold’s request especially since I deemed it was made after sober meditation on his part. I wrote the sixteen (16) Constituency Branches of the UPP, officially informing them of my bid for the Political Leader position. To my SURPRISE, Bro. Harold changed his mind and decided to run, but didn’t see it fit to EVEN INFORM ME. After praying about it, and talking to my family and the support base that I had already built, I decided to forge ahead as I strongly believe that the UPP NEEDS RENEWAL!!!!!”

  3. “To my astonishment, I began to hear talk that I was “mashing up the party”. I have neither done nor said anything inimical to the interest of our Party, the UPP. What I am seeing here is that the people who are the true root-cause of the division are the people who have been meeting regularly for over six (6) months at Tradewinds Hotel.
    Fact: They went into the St. Mary’s South Constituency and began the process of recruiting a replacement for Bro. Marshall.
    Fact: They have the replacement candidate for the St. John’s Rural West Constituency. This individual is the appointed Chairman of the Tradewinds meetings.
    A message was sent to me from a Tradewinder that if I do not back down, they will “done me” – whatever that means.
    This group even set up a meeting for some in the top leadership of the Party to meet with Bro. Arif Jonas to convince him to step aside from his intention to vie for the candidacy in the All Saints West Constituency to facilitate the Political Leader’s bid to run there.
    The question is: Who is causing division? It is certainly not Richard Sylvester Lewis.

    LOVELL. LOVELL IS. THE. PROBLEM. point-blank-period!!!!!

  4. Of course you will Harry. You will also resolve the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, end the gobal pandemic, bring down the global rising prices of food and fuel and achieve world peace🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 a real pappyshow 🤡
      Wonder what he promised his wife during their wedding vows 🤔

      • You cant give an oppinion without going personal and nasty?!?!? Of cource I am giving a favor by giving 3 mins of attention, cause clearly you never have anything sensible to say backed with facts.

        Ok, your 3 mins of attention is done….!

        • The FACT is that Lovell is a liar. He likes to promise the moon and stars and can’t deliver!! The FACT is that he has rightfully earned the title of MR. IMF ROMANTIC RHYTHMS WADADLI POWER CAN’T ABST HOTEL RIPOFF KING LYADD LIMPY JOE.

          • People should just ignore this puppet on a string and maybe he will just shut up and go away and find a real job. All he does is repeat the same crap.

          • ASK GASTON ABOUT THE HURRICANE IRMA MONEY
            ASK GASTON WHY HE CAN’T GIVE AN ACCOUNT FOR THE 2 BILLION CIP MONEY
            ASK GASTON ABOUT HIS WIFE’S CHARITY
            ASK GASTON WHY HE DON’T LIKE BLACK PEOPLE

  5. We will not be distracted. People continue to pay attention. Let’s go under the carpet. It’s time to start sweep up!
    What ever happened to the Chinese man that disappeared with all of our passports? Was he ever found? How many passports was he assigned. Did those passports ever show up? Who shared in the spoils of the monies collected? Where are the findings from the investigation? Did any heads roll?
    For a government that went aggressively after former MPs for some old school buses, how come we never hear anything about these passports after all these years?
    But a lot of us continue to play dumb and try to distract the people with all types of issues and parables that we really don’t care about.
    Is anyone surprised that our passports are being devalued?
    Do as you like, but not for as long as you like! Link me if you have an update please.
