Mrs. Vernest Mack joins the Antigua Barbuda Electoral Commission as its newest member

The Antigua and Barbuda Electoral Commission welcomes its newest member to the seven-member body.

Mrs. Vernest Mack, esteemed educator, trainer and counsellor, was appointed on September 27th 2022 by the Governor General’s Deputy, Sir Clare Roberts, KCN, KC.

Mrs. Mack replaces Ms. Jeanette Charles, who was appointed by the Antigua and Barbuda Chamber of Commerce, the Antigua and Barbuda Trades Union Congress and the Employers’ Federation. Ms. Charles seven-year tenure came to an end in August 2022.

Mrs. Mack brings to the fore a wealth of experience and is often described as motivated, hardworking, community activist and trade unionist with high ethical values and standards.

She is no stranger to the Electoral Commission, having served as a Returning Officer from 1999-2021, the training officer for all Returning Officers from 2004- 2018 for both the General Elections and the Barbuda Council Elections.

Mrs. Mack looks forward to making a valuable contribution to the work and further advancement of the Antigua and Barbuda Electoral Commission while maintaining balance, transparency and democracy.

  1. Congratulationd Vernest!
    I have known this lady for many, many years and I can vouch for her no-nonsense approach to teaching and as an elections official. She has been one of the staunchest supporters of the ABLP and that begs the question: If Ms. Jeanette Charles was appointed by the Antigua and Barbuda Chamber of Commerce and the Employers’ Federation, shouldn’t her replacement also be an appointee of the same said organizations, to maintain the structural integrity of Electoral Commission? The ABLP would now be over-represented by the appointment of Mrs. Vernest Mack, not so? Just asking…
