‘We are humbled’: Victory for BPM with clean sweep in Barbuda Council elections


(Antigua Observer) Barbuda’s affairs will be controlled by those with its people’s best interests at heart.

That was the vitriolic stance of the sister isle’s MP yesterday as he celebrated a resounding victory for his BPM party in Wednesday’s Barbuda Council elections.

The BPM saw a clean sweep in the poll, claiming all four seats up for grabs which were also contested by four ABLP candidates and two independent runners. It means the party retains all elected seats on the local governing body.

Trevor Walker said the result was a “rejection of the philosophy and ideology” of the Gaston Browne-led ABLP by the people of Barbuda.

The four candidates representing the incumbent party all secured final votes considerably higher than their opponents.

Devon Warner was re-elected after claiming 438 votes, as was Sharima Deazle who got 417. First-time candidates John Mussington and Fitzroy Warner rounded off the BPM’s success with 433 and 395 votes respectively.
