On Wednesday, members of various political parties in the twin island state of Antigua and Barbuda submitted their names as candidates to contest the January 18 elections.

There will be at least 51 candidates on the ballots spread across 16 constituencies in Antigua and one in Barbuda.

Prime Minister Gaston Browne filed his nomination papers at Villa Primary School shortly before midday.

“I am confident that the ABLP will be returned to the office”, Browne told reporters after he was nominated.

Meanwhile, candidates and members of the United Progressive Party congregated on the Rising Sun Cricket Ground, following the successful nominations of their candidates.

Leader of the UPP Harold Lovell said he was satisfied that the “tide has changed, and we will capitalize on the gains that we have made,”.

DNA Political Leader and candidate for St Philip’s North, Joanne Massiah, also confirmed that all sixteen of the party’s candidates have been duly nominated for their respective constituencies.

    Get rid of this imbecile. To give him a third chance as prime minister will further embolden him to continue to insult, deprive, and impoverish you while feathering his nest and those of his fawning dimwits.

    Not another term for him. He has failed the country spectacularly. Take all the gifts he offers and VOTE him out. Antigua & Barbuda is been chauffeured in R (Reverse).

    Why Brown Paper Bag has the Hitler Mustache, only God knows. I guess he’s taking his cues from King Roosevelt. Anything you can do, I can do it better.

    At least the main opposition parties in Antigua are not as moronic as the ones in Dominica who decided not to participate in the election whereby denying themselves the opportunity of having representation in parliament.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 1 Thumb down 17

    I hope Antiguans would do the right thing. Send Gaston to his political demise. By the way, that photo of Gaston is as though someone cut him out of a comic book and bred life into him – a real cartoon character.

    Look at the serrated teeth, overgrown mustache, shaggy eyebrows – Is he wearing a Halloween mask?

    Jesus is coming back, get ready. Cast your vote for the The Great I Am. Who’s side are you on? You cannot sit on the fence. You are either for God (on His side) or you are on the devil’s side. “God Rules in the affairs of men.” But man thinks he is god. Their mortal end is right around the bend. My God is the King of kings, and Lord of lords.” So, Woolay Corzot.
