After three years in opposition, the United Progressive Party (UPP) has regrouped, strengthened its base, and is ready to retake the reins of governance. To demonstrate its readiness, the Party will formally ratify its candidates at a Presentation Ceremony on Sunday November 5, 2017.

“This event will be like a mini convention,” explained Senator Lovell, Political Leader.

“In preparation for the next general elections, the UPP will present a slate of 16 persons, previously appointed as Caretakers for the Party, who will be officially confirmed as candidates.

“The people of Antigua and Barbuda are in search of a new vision, new direction, new ideas and a new perspective,” Lovell said. “We have mobilized a vibrant, focused and committed team that will ‘Restore Pride and Prosperity’ in Antigua and Barbuda.”

The team, described as ‘people-guided and business-minded,’ is touted as an astute mix of experience and youthful energy; it includes a number of new personalities with established connections in their communities, as well as political veterans.

Over the past year, these Candidates-Elect have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to the Party’s mobilization efforts and dialogue with their constituents. Out of these efforts, they have identified the key issues and remedial programs that will improve the lives of citizens in their respective communities.

Accordingly, at the November 5th event, the UPP Leadership will also present innovative and transformative policy platforms to help build a better nation. “We will demonstrate to the people of Antigua and Barbuda that the UPP has listened keenly to their concerns, hopes and aspirations,” Senator Lovell stated.

Going forward, the Party will continue to employ effective communications tools – including public consultations and focus groups that provide feedback – to ensure that its vision and message are actually delivered to the people of Antigua and Barbuda.

  1. We need to push this new team. I and my family are fed up of Gasston’s lies, deceit, teickery and treachery. Since he’s been these, there are more of us on the breadline, prices go up, and even the Lord Himself has lashed us with natural disaster, for letting this wicked and ungodly administration of necromancy to take root in our beautiful land. Never again Lord, never again.
