OAS to observe general elections in Antigua and Barbuda

OAS mission in Dominica for 2022 general elections 

An OAS mission headed by Former Prime Minister of Jamaica Bruce Golding has arrived in Antigua and Barbuda to observe their January 18th general elections.

The group deployed by the Organization of the American States is comprised of 11 experts and observers from 7 different countries.

During its work, the Mission will observe areas such as electoral organization and registries, electoral technology, electoral justice, political finance, and the political participation of women.

They will also meet with government officials, electoral authorities, political leaders and candidates, representatives of civil society and other relevant stakeholders.

On the day of the election, the Mission will deploy throughout the country to observe the voting process.
This is the fourth time that the OAS has observed an electoral process in Antigua and Barbuda, having been present for general elections in 2009, 2014 and 2018.

Following the general elections, the Mission will present a preliminary report with its observations, along with recommendations that will seek to support the strengthening of the electoral process.
This OAS Mission is possible thanks to the financial contributions of Brazil, Canada, Italy, Korea, The Netherlands, Peru, and United States.

    ‘baton for three turning’ – the auto correct mechanism went berserk on me. It should be ‘Gaston for threatening’

    Would the OAS, CARICOM and the Commonwealth ever condemn baton for three turning to thump Asod Michael in his mouth? This is injecting violence in the campaign.

    By the way, Asod doesn’t need to worry about the bodily harm Gaston’s punch may cause. The man’s punch can’t even hurt a mosquito.

    These observers are pretty much useless. They do nothing about bribery, padding of the voters’ list in weak constituencies of the ruling party, treating, renting plane loads of voters in the diaspora.

    It’s as though they are glad for the joyride and the toothsome delicacies. Complete waste of time and money.

      Why don’t you join them and if you end up on the highway, just count the headlights on the highway. Everybody seems to be a waste of time. The whole world we live in is a waste of time. My paycheck from my employer is a waste of time sitting in this office all day long. Do you want another snap election? I know you can’t handle it far less stomach it.

    They are all satan’s people and it’s only God who will crop them. “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lust of your father ye will ye do. He was a Murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth. BECAUSE THERE IS NO TRUTH OF HIM.” Jn. 8:44. Even those who follow him are deeply involved in witchcraft and obea. These observers have already have the cat in the bag since the very day the Brown man belched his snap STEALECYION.

      Everything from now on will be snap at the snap of our fingers. Can you handle it, Mr. Preacher Man?
