Watts and deFreitas call on the electorate to turn out next January 18 and rid the country of the ALP Administration

21

Now that January 18, 2023, has been announced as the date of the General Election, the people of Antigua and Barbuda should ready themselves to vote the Antigua Labour Party Administration out of office, says Algernon “Serpent “Watts, the United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for St. George.

If change truly is to be effected, and the current hardship on the people is to be eased, Watts tells residents that now is not the time to sit down and say they are not voting;

He says this election should be taken as a personal campaign to free the country of a set of “self-enrichment renegades.”

Meanwhile, Watts’ fellow candidate in St. John’s City South, Franz deFreitas, is also calling the people to action to rid the country of the Labour Party Administration.

DeFreitas says that the UPP, under the stewardship of Political Leader Harold Lovell, is ready to lead and to redeem this country from the brink of economic collapse.

Prime Minister Gaston Browne “called the election” on Monday night during the launch of the Labour Party’s slate of candidates, which included Rawdon Turner, the ALP’s controversial pick for the St. Peter constituency.

Across Antigua and Barbuda, citizens and residents responded with a sigh of relief that the date – a mere four weeks away – has finally been named.  However, most were not surprised, since there had been widespread speculation that January 19, 2023, would be the day.

Supporters of the UPP tell REAL News they are “ready for the change” and welcomed the news that “the wait is finally over.”

They expressed confidence that a change of administration will take place, come January 18, as their Party will emerge victorious.

One man, calling into Observer Radio last night, claimed he was already at the polling station, waiting for the gates to open to cast his vote for the UPP.

Meanwhile, persons who watched and listened to PM Browne’s campaign-launch speech have commented that he appeared to lack confidence, was unconvincing, and appeared to be “pleading with the people to give ALP the vote.”

Observers also claimed that the ALP candidates appeared lackluster and the audience was less than buoyant.

The Governor-General, Sir Rodney Williams, is expected to publish the Writ of Elections today, December 20, and Nomination Day is scheduled for December 28.

Franz declared BANKRUPTCY and ran away from U.S.A and The SNAKE according to Wilmoth Daniel is the most DISHONEST Person on Island. Now We shall ship the Serpent off to Grenada. We all know about the incident. Bunch of UPP CRIMINALS.

      • Do you know about the criminal in your red house? Kettle should call pot black. Look right inside your party and you will see the criminals

    A: “…The behaviour of this person marvels me and THORUGHOUT MY WHOLE LIFE I HAVE NEVER MET A MORE EVIL, DECEITFUL and DISHONEST PERSON. I’ve never met a person like this person ALGERNON WATT. I’ve never met a person like that. It’s the most DISHONEST, DECEIFTUL PERSON I’ve ever met in my whole life”

  4. The glorified HOUSE HUSBAND is out of touch with the Wadadli reality. Wasted years in meriKKKa and NOTHING TO SHOW for it except BANKRUPTCY!

  5. Well said Mr Watts and Mr DeFreitas.

    It looks like the UPP are making the right moves towards winning the next General Election.

    May I – humbly – suggest a maneuver that will guarantee a UPP LANDSLIDE win?

    As you know the ABLP tactics against the youths during the Covid-19 lockdown was atrocious; however, I firmly believe that they are the future for your party – and the island 🏝

    There must be a high percentage of youngsters now eligible to vote.

    Garnering these NEW voters will not only capture a UPP win, but will also ENSURE that this new generation of voters will keep the party in power for at least a couple of terms.

    A change of direction after 50 years of Birdism and Browneism is so badly needed; so that the name of Antigua & Barbuda on the world stage is restored, the aforementioned destroyers will then be long forgotten, and the good name of the country will return once more.

    THE NAME OF MY COUNTRY IS CALLED ANTIGUA & BARBUDA … NOT BROWNEISM OR BIRDISM!

    LET’S START FROM SCRATCH OR WE DONE!!!

    • Oh, I forgot to mention. Here comes the unintelligible, the uncouth and the uncultured in 3, 2, 1 … KABOOM!💥

      *Brixtonian picks up his beer 🍻 and popcorn 🍿 at the ready* 🤣🤣🤣

  6. Time for a change. The country is broke, run down and destitute. Get the renegades out of here. UPP can’t do any worse than these crooks. Not one investment in 9 years. Absolute failures!!

  7. These two Candidates will be DISQUALIFIED after nomination day. Franz declared BANKRUPTCY and ran away from U.S.A and The SNAKE according to Wilmoth Daniel is the most DISHONEST Person on Island.Now We shall ship off to Grenada. We all know about the incident.Bunch of UPP CRIMINALS.

    • PHILLIP G making up more lies, drivel and utter nonsense, you sound desperate boss!

      Hey, have a beer … cheers 🍻
