Parliament to decide on state of emergency next week


The Parliament will convene next Thursday, March 25, 2021, in order to consider whether to end or to continue the State of Emergency which, after 90 days, is scheduled to end on March 31, 2021.

Antigua and Barbuda declared a state of public emergency and 24 hour curfew on April 2, 2020, to help control the spread of the coronavirus.

The 24-hour curfew was dropped shortly after, however, the twin-island state remained under other form of curfew and other restrictions over that one year period.

Currently a 8.p.m curfew remains in effect as COVID-19 cases surged in the first two months of the year.

The Government has the majority it needs in parliament to extend the state of emergency.

  1. I think the government should continue to exercise their parliamentary majority and continue to place their knee on the neck of the Antiguan and Barbudan economy. We need to feel as much pain as possible and come close to economic colapse (many more businesses closing) before we can realize what long lasting damage these government actions will have.

  2. Time to lift that damn State of Emergency.What has done to keep the Country safe.Not one damn thing.You the people should not let the State of Emergency.Prevents you from going about your business daily.It has been about a year of this enforced Emergency.Time for it to be lifted,Gaston Browne.Time enough.

  3. Dictator and traitor Gaston only worried about his salary. The curfews haven’t done a thing to stop anything. All that was accomplished was the folding of businesses.
