“The war is on”-UPP launches 2018 election bid

Lovell made a "grand entrance" as his party launched its campaign

The United Progressive Party fired up its base as it launched its 2018 election campaign during an event at Parliament Drive on Sunday night.

UPP leader Harold Lovell who made a “grand entrance” through a crowd of UPP supporters, said the time had come to reclaim the reigns of power that the party lost three and a half years ago.

“Do you have your weapon ready,” Lovell asked a crowd of flag-waving supporters.

“Because in 17 days we are going to slay the enemy, we are going to rescue Antigua and Barbuda,” he said.

“We are going to rescue Antigua Barbuda, we are going to tell Pharaoh goodbye and with God’s help, we are going to safely cross the red sea.”

The main opposition party which ruled between 2004 and 2014 launched its campaign under the motto of Delivering Hope.

“We adopted this theme because of the hopelessness that has spread across this nation.”

Lovell urged supporters to go out and vote, reminding them “we are in a bloodless war.”

He presented the 16 candidates who are expected to be nominated today.

The UPP leader said the ABLP called the election expecting them to be unprepared.

He lamented the number of investments and promised employment which has not materialised.

  1. Just returned from the UPP rally. WHOW!!!!!!!!!! What a crowd. With mainly home grown talent, I understand that it was larger than the ABLP concert ( lots of foreign acts) People for days. Thank you Jesus.

  2. Joke for dayzzzzz. ABLP, UPP, DNA, BPM, TRUE LABOUR PARTY GO GREEN all aru is a bunch of jokers. But I must say coming and this site and reading all the dunceness of these supports is rather entertaining counting down to the finale on the 21 of March

  3. Goosh people… Why squabble over size of crowd? Compare and Contrast both major political party leader performance as finance minister…. GB far exceeded HL performance…HL was the worst finance minister in the history of A&B…. No one else is close second…… Oops HC both represented the same party…. Just reminding the amnesia-forgetful heaters UPPITES…. Antiguans and Barbudans are not dunce people…we have become more astute and smarter than before 2004…. Fools once not the same old dirty games…
