VIDEO: Who is DNA’s Louis Rivera?


The DNA’s newest political candidate, Louis Rivera, hails from the Old Runaway community and is pledging that he will be the next MP for St John’s Rural North because, “people want change.”

“There’s been little to no development in this constituency, and by extension, our country,” says Rivera.

“Family stories told by my great grandmother, Irene Arindell revolved around no water. My grandmother’s stories revolved around no water. My father could probably tell you the same stories that I can,” Rivera laments.

“It is time to break the cycle, and I mean really break it.”

Rivera says that, “as a teenager, I saw myself as the future Prime Minister.”

Having a keen eye on trade and commerce on the island the candidate bemoans the “failures and shortsightedness of our leaders.”

In the next general election, Rivera will possibly contend against constituency incumbent MP Charles “Max” Fernandez (ABLP).

“I think he’s a good person, but I don’t think he focuses enough on his constituents,” says the candidate. “I’ve never seen him.”

The United Progressive Party (UPP) has yet to name a candidate or “caretaker” for that area although, according to sources close to the party, they are considering Dr McChesney Emanuel, former New York-based Consul General and former chairman of the Antigua Barbuda Investment Authority.

Businessman Bryan DeSilva is also reportedly being considered by the UPP.

Independent candidate, Nigel Bascus Jr, better known as “Missing Link” ran in the 2014 general elections as the lone candidate of the Missing Link: Voice of the People (MLVOP) party.
