Election picket


ST JOHN’S – Supporters of the main opposition Antigua Labour Party (ALP) today marched outside the Prime Minister’s Office to force general elections.

Among those picketing the prime minister’s office were party chairman Paul “Chet” Greene and candidate Samantha Marshall.

The action comes one week after ALP leader Gaston Browne issued a challenge to Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer to call the election or face additional pressure.

The country’s leader says he won’t call the election with two cases; the boundaries and registration cases awaiting judgment from the court.

Last night Spencer dismissed the picket outside his office calling it a “pappy show”. (Antigua Observer)
