PM encouraged by early start to UPP campaign

13

Prime Minister Gaston Browne says the opposition made it too easy for him in the last general election.

The United Progressive Party (UPP) will launch its election campaign next Thursday, January 27, at a drive-in event at Potters.

The Party is gearing up for General Elections, which are constitutionally due in 2023, but are expected to be called early.

Deputy Political Leader Jamale Pringle says the UPP will not be caught off-guard and is ready, along with its candidates, for the pending polls.

Pringle says the requisite permission has been sought and received.  He adds that police officials have even indicated that the Party’s safety protocols will be used as a template for other such events.

The All Saints East & St. Luke Candidate says a number of topical issues will be addressed at the campaign launch, including the development of small, medium and large businesses.

  1. UPP Taking the WHITE CLOTHED PAGEANT SHOW on the road. Starting in my CONSTITUENCY is a BIG JOKE.
    The MASTER OF CEREMONIES will be IAN ( MAGIC ) HUGHES a CONVICTED CHILD MOLESTER. UPP will present the following CANDIDATES to the NATION.

    SCOOP of ICE CREAM
    BOUNCED CHEQUE PERSON
    CONVICTED MURDERER
    SOMEONE WHO LOST 9 ELECTIONS
    ST.LUCIA IS LOOKING FOR THE ST.GEORGE REPRESENTATIVE
    OTHERS BUNCH OF SAYING NOTHING

    What an AWFUL SIGHT that will be. I will be watching with my LOUD SPEAKER.

  2. Any truth to the rumours that CORTWRIGHT MARSHALL HAS BEEN KICKED TO THE CURB LIKE A CHEATING EX as the UPP candidate for St. Mary’s South? Is it true that some “Shoogy” person was hauled in to take his spot after Lovell kicked out his childhood buddy from the slate of UPP Teenage Pageant contestants? Is it true that Cortwirght subsequently removed himself from all whatsapp chats linked to the UPP? Is it true that Cortwright has vowed to ensure that the people in that constituency votes against the UPP?

    • @ SAD BUT TRUE

      I have heard the same thing for weeks. Also I heard that Cortright Marshall is not keeping well. Hope He is OK.

      • @ RED KOOLAID
        NOBODY is denigrating the ICE CREAM LADY.What We are saying They are not QUALIFIED for Public Office.

  3. Since when selling of Ice Cream is a crime in Antigua? I grew up in Antigua and many persons did sell Ice Cream to subsidized their incomes.You so called non brains Labor Party supporters like to denigrate others for working and paying their fair shares of taxes.What did Maria Browne do before she woke up one day and decided to run for Public Office? What was her working experiences? Everyone on the Labor Party ticket is squeaky clean.Tell me,who was the Lawyer that held on to a clients money for years.That lady from Switzerland had to sue him for her money.That same Lawyer signed off on a Passport document. He should be in Jail like all other ordinary Citizens.Sets of criminals in ties and three piece suits.

    • Guy compare the team UPP had in 2004 to the current team. You had persons then you could atleast state persons can leon on for experience (Charlesworth, Brother B, Errol Cort, Justin Simon). Even with all of this the UPP stilll failed (WPP fiacso costing us over 100 million, Fencing scandal some 50 million, airport scandal, some 200 million, HMB mess some 100 million ec, Our being banned for years from hosting test cricket, APC mess that saw us losing at the Privy counsel (over 100 million), TRASI medical Transcription scandal. Now they are pushing a even more inexperienced team. Never again ( was fooled in 2004 and prior )

  4. I used to back Gaston Browne but now I have found out he’s a nasty piece of shit that can no longer be trusted.

  5. Although most independently thinking citizens are not swayed by rhetoric……This should be an EASY win for the Oppositions based on the Rhetoric’s from the current head of state. Notice “oppositions” as the election may need the Barbuda seat to form a government.
