Antigua: DNA’s Andrew Antonio says he will contest upcoming by-election


by Robert A Emmanuel (Antigua Observer) While the expectation is that the upcoming by-election will focus on the two candidates representing the Antigua Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP) and the United Progressive Party (UPP), another political hopeful is asking the public not to forget about the third horse in this democratic race.

Andrew Antonio, the Democratic National Alliance (DNA) candidate for the St Mary’s South constituency in the January 18 election, has confirmed that he will be contesting the upcoming by-election as well.

“Yes, I will be contesting the by-election for the Democratic National Alliance with my whole heart, with the idea of prosperity, the idea of change and the idea of growth,” he told Observer.

Although Antonio only received 12 votes in the January 18 general elections, he rebuffed any claim that contesting the election would be a “waste of time” saying he believed it was “an opportunity day in, day out, to show the people of St Mary’s South and Antigua and Barbuda where they should lay their trust in the future for themselves and generations to come”.
