Lovell says padding of Voters List is part of ALP playbook, but it will not get away with attempts to steal the elections

34

Amid reports of voter-padding efforts in Barbuda, the Political Leader of the United Progressive Party (UPP), Harold Lovell, says the Antigua Labour Party (ALP) will not get away with attempts to steal the general elections.

Similar reports have been made on Antigua, and Lovell says there should be heightened awareness of these efforts, with the elections being imminent.

According to reports, Antiguan residents working on the Peace Love and Happiness (PLH) project in Barbuda have been attempting to register on the sister-island – a plan hinted at by Prime Minister Browne months ago.

Lovell says he is not surprised at this move by the Labour Party, since voter padding has been a part of its political playbook for decades.

However, he notes that quite a number of persons who attempted to get onto the Barbuda register have been rejected, according to discussions he has had with members of the Barbuda People’s Movement (BPM), the incumbent political party.

It appears that the Labour Party’s attempt to inflate the Barbuda list is backfiring, Lovell says; and he notes that the law is clear regarding eligibility for registration in a constituency.

Meanwhile, the UPP Political Leader is calling on citizens and residents to be on their guard and not allow Browne and his candidates to entice them with money at this time.

Lovell says this is the ALP norm: Giveaways now and then trampling on voters for the five years before another election.

  1. How can you be surprised when you all #UPPNEARGA did the same thing? Remember the plane from Cuba….give me a break. It was ok for you #HFWL and you UPP cronies to do a similar tactic back then but now you frowing on it.

    • @ Just saying

      They certainly didn’t buy voting cards from the public as Gaston admitted; the only way for ABLP to win elections in Antigua by patronage and handouts, and the only reason Collin didn’t win in All Saints East was because he kept the money for himself and didn’t follow the plan.
      I wonder how and when UPP padded votes- bringing people back to vote is not padding. The ABLP was the first to float the idea.

    • All UPP Candidates should be DISQUALIFIED. Apart from DUNCE , They are a BUNCH of CRIMINAL ELEMENTS. Franz DeFreitas is the latest casualty.

  2. Gaston “Emperor” Browne will continue to try and manipulate and “pad-up” the votes for the ABLP.

    We Antiguans shouldn’t really be concerned though, because when our EMPEROR eventually calls the General Election, the independent watchdogs who oversee and lookout for any wrongdoing, will report their findings accordingly to the relevant authorities.

    Using a cricketing metaphor, the only thing that Gaston Browne should be PADDING UP for, is preparing himself to be clean bowled by the UPP at the next General Election. Blam bam! ABLP Wicket mash-up! 🏏

    • @ BRIXTONIAN…

      I am quite sure if We investigate BRIXTONIAN It will be the same results as FRANZ DeFreitas. Franz should be DISQUALIFIED from running on any political ticket in Antigua and Barbuda. The following are FRANZ qualifications.

      Declared BANKRUPT in the U.S.A

      Did not pay taxes U.S.A

      Owe mortgage $184,000 left the Mortgage company holding the bag

      Owe $1000 in UNPAID TAXES.

      Owe ACB $$$$$

      Franz is a FRAUD and should NOT be running on any POLITICAL ticket . He cannot manage His personal life , how the hell Franz wants to run the affairs of Antigua / Barbuda. Franz please withdraw yourself before We take legal actions against you. Franz is just a but a BIG MOUTH.

      BRIXTONIAN is the same as FRANZ . BRIXTONIAN..FRAUD FRAUD.

      UPP present US with all CRIMINAL Elements. SHAME. SHAME UPP.

      • SAMMY, are you ok?

        Relax yourself nah man, and stay on point when responding to news articles … and furthermore, stop shooting the messenger and investigate the real culprits who are making the citizens of Antigua & Barbuda suffer bad, bad … bad!

        Remember boss, all – ABLP – sharks 🦈 🦈 🦈 do bite, but it’s normally the small fish 🐠 that get the blame …

        Nice try at deflection though SAMMY 👍

  3. “PAD voting list”????? Is that what Bruce Goodwin did when he boast and brag on Observer radio that he loaded a plane with only UPP students to ENSURE THAT TREVOR WALKER WON HIS SEAT??? Only students who Bruce thought were anti-ABLP were allowed on that flight home. What an “ambASSador”!!!!!!! Discrimination against citizens at the hands of a UPP-appointed amabssador. He went as far as to take credit for Trevor Walker winning his seat. Don’t you recall the infamous interview? That was the interview in which he made it clear that the UPP was anti-foreigners. He called our CAribbean brothers and sisters “paupers” and derided them and their countries of origin. Do you need me to send you the clip? Bruce Goodwin said he single-handedly determined who boarded that fight home BASED ON THEIR POLITICAL PERSUASIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No wonder Bruce gone back to UPP. The DOG RETURN TO ITS VOMIT!!!

      • Brixtonian, (the wordplay artist) living and thriving inside of @SAMMY’S head, that he has to repeat himself again and again 😁

    • Here’s one for you @ Ras Smood, there’s a popular say that goes:

      “When someone points a finger at you, there are three fingers also pointing at the accuser” … 👉

    • @Ras Smood…Here my #Slave-💩💩💩it’s feeding time! Catch 💩💩💩enjoy! These are your patties. They should give you enough energy to spew ABLP’s shit!

  5. Says the Guy who until earlier this year (about 2months ago) was still registered in City East while residing in Buckleys. Wow that’s crazy !!!!!

      • @ Gaston the Crook
        You hit the nail on the head!

        I keep repeating the same thing to these HYPOCRITICAL SUPPORTERS OF THE ABLP: The same thing they criticise the UPP for they are 1000 times guiltier (if there is such a word), and they don’t have any shame.
        So now ‘Sinner’ will you admit to your transgressions and repent? Is that crazy!!!!!! (like Gaston) or should I send you some Rasperdol?

  6. Can someone tell me how UPP selected these Candidates with these CRIMINAL records ?. FRANZ DEFreitas is latest one to add to the flock. Even the Leader Harold Lovell is answering to a CRIMINAL charge in the HIGH COURT. All UPP Candidates should be ABANDONED.

    • Oh, by the way @ PRIM, what are your views on the fake airline and fake passengers that Gaston, Chet Colin and Max lied about?

      I look forward to your take on this issue!

      #ablpcaughtoutlyingtoantiguansagain🇦🇬

      • @ BRIXTONIAN

        The Airline from Africa is a wonderful idea that will bear fruits shortly. This reminds me when BRIXTONIAN, Gisele and the UPP were against the university. Now We see You Guys are flocking to the university. BRIXTONIAN and UPP DO NOT like PROGRESS. Bunch of FRAUDS.

        • Progress, you talk about progress @PRIM; I’m a proud Antiguan that has created REAL jobs on the island and not FAKE ones like this airline fiasco (to hoodwink the electorate) by this current wayward administration.

          You well and know this airline link with Nigeria is a load of bull-dust, because Gaston can’t even resolve the outstanding financial problems with Liat; and yet he wants the voting public to believe him on this fake airline?

          As I’ve mentioned in numerous ANR postings, it seems like you ABLP generational supporters are so easily fooled by Gassy and his band of self-enrichment highway men!

    • @ PRIM

      I think you should re-brand the Antigua Labour Party, THE ALL-SAINTS LABOUR PARTY.

      IT IS FULL OF ALL RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE. PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT STOLEN ROLLS ROYCE FROM THE PORT, BRIBED EURO 3,000,000 FROM ODEBRECHT, FLEECE GOVERNMENT LANDS TO MINISTERS FOR $2 PER SQUARE FOOT, USE YOUNG LADIES AS PROSTITUTES, ISSUE BOUNCE CHEQUES LIKE RUBBER PRIOR TO 2014, PHYSICAL ABUSE OF THEIR WIFE AND MISTRESS INCLUDING BATTERY, PRACTICE PAEDOPHILIA ETC
      YOU GUYS ARE SINLESS, YOU ARE PURE AND PERFECT, LIKE NEW BORN BABES.
      NOT MENTIONING ALL THE ENQUIRIES OVER THE YEARS, ROYDAN FARM, GUNS TO COLOMBIA, MBS, BLOOM COOPER- BASICALLY THE MOST CORRUPT GOVERNMENT IN THE WORLD, but now you want to shift it off to the UPP. YOU GUYS ARE REALLY SICK.

    • @ UPP’s SHERFIELD…………

      The worst criminal act carried out by any political party in this country was WHEN GASTON AND CUTIE TEAR-GASSED CHILDREN AND THE ELDERLY, including BABIES, with TEAR GAS ON 08/08/2021.
      THAT ALONE SHOULD DISQUALIFY THEM FROM HOLDING OFFICE, NOT JUST THE AMOUNT OF DISHONEST DEALS THAT THEY HAVE ENTERED INTO TO ENRICH THEMSELVES.

  7. All UPP Candidates should be DISQUALIFIED. Apart from DUNCE , They are a BUNCH of CRIMINAL ELEMENTS. Franz DeFreitas is the latest casualty.

  8. On 31 March 2010, a judge nullified the election of UPP’s leader Spencer, Jacqui Quinn-Leandro and John Maginley, declaring the UPP majority a scam.
    The UPP stole the 2009 elections and have no moral authority to accuse anyone of stealing elections.
