Regis Burton among candidates being polled to replace Asot Michael in St. Peter


The prime minister has given yet another indication of the  three candidates tipped to represent the party in the St Peter constituency at the next general elections.

The seat is currently held by long-standing Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP) incumbent Asot Michael.

Gaston Browne addressed the matter on Saturday revealing that polling has begun in the constituency and the executive of the ABLP will be making a decision within weeks.


“We will be polling Regis Burton, Shermain Jeremy, Royden Turner to determine which of the three will be most viable to represent the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party in the upcoming general elections,” Browne explained.

Jeremy, a former Carnival queen and Miss Universe contender, has previously said she is more than willing to step up to the plate as the ABLP’s candidate for St Peter.

  1. It will be interesting, to see if Asot just laps his ‘tale’ between his legs and walk off into his Fort James sunset!

    Gaston, and Labour must have struck one #Hell of a deal with Asot for him to be this quiet, or he’s simply waiting on the perfect moment to explode!? Timing is everything in poliTRICKS.

  2. Who is this Regis fella? Does anybody know anything about him? We need to know what is his ideology, his political beliefs and philosophy, his morals, level of spirituality and values? Is he a democratic socialist in the tradition of the founders of the ALP, or is he just looking for a job. We need all of this information, and all of it matters. As for Asot, the old guy will probably run as an independent, and give the the race to the UPP. IF he runs as an independent, he’ll split the vote. It’s time now for him to just go home and enjoy his old age. Thank you Asot for your service.

    • He is a very decent young man and way better than ALL THE RAT SCRAPS both ABLP and UPP have in their party.

  3. Regis Burton,if you knew.What is best for you.Stay as far as possible away from Politics and the Labor Party of Gaston Browne.
