Watts recommends shift system for ABEC registration units so that no one is disenfranchised from voting process


REAL NEWS: Algernon “Serpent” Watts is suggesting that a shift system be put in place at the Electoral Commission’s registration units, since some residents are unable to do business within the standard hours of operation.

Watts, the United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for St. George, says many people have complained that they are unable to get registered or transferred because of the units’ operating hours and their work obligations.

Watts says that a source from the Antigua and Electoral Commission (ABEC) has indicated that extending the operating hours for the units would be too costly.

However, he says the essential thing is that ABEC should make it easy for people to get registered.

The St. George Candidate says that systems must be put in place to ensure that no one who is eligible to vote is disenfranchised from taking part in the process.

  1. ABEC please extend the hours of operation for voter registrations like how they extended the hours for Immigration for the amnesty period. We don’t want no smart answer as to where the money is coming from to pay for the shift periods or the overtime cause, they found money to pay Immigration or jus tek a likkle ting from the 40mil.

  2. Just a little bit of common sense. Have some people start earlier and some later to work until 7pm.

  3. The PEOPLE recommend that this USELESS DECREPIT 🐍 give back the 26 ACRES of land instead of FARMing FOOL.

    26 ACRES of OLD FRIDGE, OLD STOVE, DIRTY PAMPERS, RUBBISH AND SMELLY SEWAGE. This is the “commitment” shown by the UPP Shadow Minister of Agriculture
