Antigua and Barbuda’s Opposition Leader Jamal Pringle was officially sworn in this morning.
Pringle is the Parliamentary Representative for All Saint East and St Luke who won overwhelmingly against the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party’s Michael Browne during the January 18th general elections.
Pringle also replaces longtime leader Harold Lovel who retired from the post after a small-margin defeat.
Four senators were also sworn in this morning including General Secretary of the Antigua and Barbuda Workers Union David Massiah and Shawn Nicholas who was sworn in as Minority Leader in the Senate.
Newcomers Johnathon Joseph and Alex Browne were also appointed senators.
The UPP won six seats in the last elections.

Go to hell.You should have given advice to your UWP traitor Sham Douglas.Yard fowl.Nobody is listen to you.
Mr. Pringle, I hope you and your party will rigorously and vigorously hold the incumbents’ feet to the fire. It cannot be business as usual now that the UPP is in a much stronger position.
Transparency, accountability, the rule of law, good and open government must become the norm of business in government. There should be no compromise on these beforementioned tenets of a legitimate democratic society.
