PM Browne says ABLP polls showed Cortwright Marshall in the lead against Samantha Marshall

19

By overwhelming majority, the General Council of the United Progressive Party (UPP) has confirmed Kelvin “Shugy” Simon as its new candidate for the St. Mary’s South Constituency.

On Sunday night, August 21, the Council ratified decisions taken by the Party’s Executive Committee earlier this month, retiring previous candidate Corthwright Marshall out of concern for his health and recommending Simon, who emerged the front-runner in its constituency polls.

Simon, in a brief acceptance speech, indicated that his interest in politics was sparked since 2004.  He said he is humbled by his selection as a Candidate for the UPP, the Party he has long admired, and, accordingly, is inspired and motivated to get his campaign going.

A professional guidance counselor, Simon is a former national athlete and an entrepreneur whose roots are firmly established in the community of St. Mary’s South.

Described as “a charismatic community organizer,” he believes that great leaders are honed by serving the needs of the people.

Accordingly, he is the co-founder of “Project Bolans,” a group formed out of love for the community and the desire to see it move in a positive direction.

Political Leader Harold Lovell says that “Simon is ready to roll up his sleeves and do the hard work that is needed in St. Mary’s South.  He is determined to help tackle the neglect of the young people, the spiralling cost of living, and the other challenges that are making life tough – not only for his constituents, but for too many Antiguans and Barbudans.”

Lovell adds that he and his colleagues welcome Simon to the slate, and the Party will be putting out its best efforts to ensure that he covers the most ground in the shortest possible time.

Meanwhile, the UPP salutes Brother Marshall for the sterling work he has done in the constituency these many years, and it reiterates its pledge to support him on his journey to recovery and good health.

With skill sets across various disciplines, including law, tourism, economics and agriculture, Marshall is earmarked to play a major role in the UPP Administration, the Political Leader says.

  1. GASTON SHUT TO HELL UP.

    DID’NT LESTER GET A ROTTEN DEAL FROM ABLP WHEN YOU GUYS HAD TO HIDE THE FACT THAT HE SUFFERED MULTIPLE STROKES SO THAT HE COULD STAND A CHANCE OF WINNING HIS SEAT?
    THE UPP IS NOT PRETENTIOUS BUT CARING, THEY DO NOT SHUT THINGS UNDER THE CARPET BUT IS TRANSPARENT TO THEIR SUPPORTERS AND CONTRIBUTORS. KEEP YOUR CLAPPERS SHUT OUT OF THE PEOPLE DEM PARTY BUSINESS.
    ALL YOU ARE SAYING IS JUST TO MAKE THE UPP LOOK BAD AS IF PEOPLE STUPID AND PATRONISE US. FUNNY YOU SAID ABLP WAS GONNA WIN ALL 17 SEATS BUT NOW MARSHALL WAS GONNA WIN HIS.
    YOU ARE SUCH A HYPOCRITICAL AND USEFUL IDIOT.
    WHEEL AND COME AGAIN.

  2. An “ABLP” poll shows that they are in the lead … 😌🤣🤣

    This Prime Minister really takes Antiguans for damn fools – would an ABLP poll show them in a negative position?

  3. Gaston STOP CHAT F— and get the damn JOBS going!

    With ABLP failing on over 26 projects, plus the other 10 Lennox Weston admitted slipped through their hands, we lost over 15 billion in investment and 7000 permanent jobs! Gaston should resign out of shame. Do the honourable thing.

    Oh yes, that’s right. A man that takes $20,000 US monthly rent from a failed investor that doesn’t even pay his workers… that’s not a man that will do the honourable thing EVER

    We need UPP in Government to get some of these ALP failed projects brought back to life, to provide jobs and an economic shot in the arm… using the Investment Authority or however else:

    • Gaston just speak the truth but that is alien to you. Your poll not only show that Cortwright Marshall was leading Samantha, but the UPP candidates were leading all of the ALP candidates. You are in trouble and you know it. Please call the election.

  4. There can NEVER be 2 of Gaston Browne. What a liard hypocrite. Nobody cares what you think about the decisions made about UPP replacing Mr. Marshall. We know that you don’t care at all about Mr.Marshall except to use the situation for your political mileage as you are doing now. Why don’t you concentrate on running the country. As a parent I wonder if your government couldn’t have given the children 2 uniforms this school year knowing that your government only took from us and did not give us anything at all for the 2 years of COVID. We beg you to concentrate on your 26 failed projects, your wife who does nothing for the people of SJRE so she can keep her late school bags because we voting Sean Bird. You chat too much! Please call the election date because you MUST Go!

  5. Gaston you really eat parrot bottom. Can you tell us something we don’t already know? If Marshall with his health issues can bang Samantha, Shugy will slaughter her. Any other polls you want to share.

  6. The PM never said that he was in the lead. The PM said he was the most viable candidate of the UPP. What a tangled web we weave when we lie and deceive. Anyone that wants to hear what the PM said should go and listen to the recording on the Facebook page of Pointe FM.
    But of course, many of you don’t care about the truth. So you will not make that effort. And the editor knows that.

  7. Lovell need to address the allegations on social media:

    “Lovell almost kill Mr Marshall he gave him $10000 bounced checks and when he used the check he couldn’t pay back so sugar and pressure went up . The man fainted. Wick Lovell only give him 2500 afterwards. He Lovell is the one that made the health worse”

    “…it’s a fact it happened. He gave the man a check and he took it and paid up the rent for the branch office and it bounced he had to make payments to the landlord and the remaining balance of 2500 they took him to court and he fainted and that when the leader gave the 2500 instead of 10 thousand. The didn’t invite him to general council and they had the nerve to send him a letter telling him he was no longer the representative. They did him bad . My brother campaigned for him they are very close. There are many things I can say but I hope a news house reach out to him now because he is ready to address the matter.”

  8. WHERE OS SOR ROBON ….WHEN WAS SIR ROBIN’S LAST PUBLIC APPEARANCE?
    CAN SIR ROBIN PLEASE COME TO THE PUBLIC AND SPEAK ABOUT HIS CURRENT HEALTH STATUS

    GB MENTIONED THAT HE HAD TO BEG JOEY JOHN TO HIDE SIR LESTER CAN GB PLEASE TELL THE PUBLIC ABOUT SIR ROBIN NOW.

    UPP DID WHAT THEY HAD TO DO UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES SO GASTON LET’S TALK SIR ROBIN AND MOLWYN.

    • Check the ABS news this past weekend. SIR Robin just donated some much needed items to the Glanvilles Polyclinic.

      Now what about the UPP candidate with the “BAD HEART”? you think he will come clean and tell the nation about his HEART PROBLEMS??

      Heart Attack and Cardiac Arrest is worse…much worse than Diabetes (which is reversible if it’s Type 2).

      What is the cure for a BAD HEART tho??

      • @ Hmmmmmmm

  10. @have no mercy
    Lester was stressed the way this wicked leader running the country he probably died because the wicked leader grieve him to death

  11. It is my belief that Robin should not run again due to age . However, to suggest he is not in good health is not true . He was on television give a gift to the clinic up Ganville Teo night ago and looking good. I think he have served for several terms and that APLP need to replace those old men with fresh and energetic minds .

    • I agree with you. It is time for the older heads to bow out and let younger minds take their stead.

      • “Younger minds” like EMPTYHEAD Gladys Potter 🍦 scooper who don’t know Jack shit about “FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT” and boldly proclaimed that “LIAT IS NOT IMPORTANT”
