UPP Political Leader Congratulates Six Newly Elected Members of the Party’s Executive Committee


Harold Lovell, Political Leader of the United Progressive Party (UPP), is congratulating the six Party Members who were elected to the Executive Committee on Sunday, July 3.

During the first in-person meeting of the General Council since September 2020, elections were held to fill several posts that had become vacant.

Accordingly, Senator Damani Tabor was voted in as the Party’s new Public Relations Officer; Sister Delia Charles as Welfare Officer; Brother Harry Josiah as Labour Relations Officer; and Brother Hudson Joseph, Jr. as Education Officer.

The new Members-at-Large are Brother Shelly Clarke and Brother Guishonne Powell.

Three positions had become vacant by virtue of the post-holders having been ratified as Candidates; two owing to Members’ leaves of absence; and the other due to the passing of Brother Michael Burton.

“This was a very uplifting and encouraging exercise,” Lovell said of Sunday’s vote.  “The atmosphere was very warm and supportive of all who were nominated and congratulatory to the winners.

“It speaks of the Party’s spirit of unity, its desire to put forward our best players, and its recognition of the commitment and competence of those elected,” he added.

“Like the rest of the Executive, I warmly congratulate the winners and welcome them into service; those who did not win, I thank them for accepting the nominations; and to the General Council membership, I express my admiration for their maturity and spirit of participation,” the Political Leader said.

The vote was conducted by Member-at-Large Brother Rudolph Davis and involved delegates’ show of hands – a decision agreed upon via a Motion put to the 16 Branches present.


Lovell also congratulated the Party’s General Secretary, Senator Shawn Nicholas, and her team for pulling off “a well-attended and highly successful meeting, with all the administrative matters professionally handled.”


More than 150 delegates and observers attended Sunday’s General Council Meeting.

  1. Now oust the political leader and his arrogant enablers and reunite with the DNA brothers and sisters. We need dynamic leadership.

    • Absolutely correct, a coalition will put the citizens of the country first!

      Single party politics hasn’t helped Antigua in the recent PAST, definitely not in the PRESENT, and unlikely to in the FUTURE.


  2. The more UPP change the more they remain the same. Old wine in new bottles… Soon & very soon UPP will disintegrate & end up in the dust bins of Antigua’s political history

  3. Ms. Joanne Massiah will have ABSOLUTLEY NOTHING to do with the King of BADPLAY who undermined her chance at leadership and then KICKED HER OUT the upp. Maybe if Richard Lewis was party leader, she would agree to have “talks”. Harold loveLIE is a mess!
