Gaston Browne,the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party, has stated that his party is getting ready for an upcoming by-election.
He acknowledged that if Shugy’s information is accurate, the by-election must take place within 120 days. Browne assured that the Labour Party is actively preparing for the by-election.
In a previous statement, he had suggested that the by-election would not be called within 90 days.
However, Browne mentioned that he allowed for a longer timeframe to allow the ongoing court case to proceed. Regardless, he emphasized that his party will be ready to face Shugy and the United Progressive Party (UPP).
Browne expressed his opinion on Shugy’s confidence, noting that while Shugy secured about 55% of the votes, it was not a substantial victory.He highlighted that in polling, a small margin of error is typically 3-5%, indicating that Shugy’s win was not overwhelming. Browne questioned the notion that Shugy is invincible and stated that he is uncertain where such an idea originated.
