Parliamentary representative for the Salybia Constituency, Ashton Graneau, has hinted that he may not be seeking re-election when the next general election is called.
“The truth is I am seriously considering not seeking re-election,” he said at a press conference on Wednesday morning.
When questioned on his achievements and why he should earn a second term in office, Graneau said the question hinges on the assumption that he will be seeking re-election.
“Your question hinges on that I will be seeking re-election if I were to,” he stressed, “I think based on what we’ve been able to do, some of the projects that we have ongoing that needed to complete … that were done during my time.”
He stated that there are a “few new things” that were done during his tenure, “and those, I would be able to sell out.”
He spoke of ongoing projects that need to be completed and concluded that the people should be the judge of his performance.
“ I wouldn’t want to break the news so to speak, but as you know election is due in the next year or so, nine months from now, constitutionally, so in the event that I were to seek reelection, I think I would allow the people to judge me and judge my performance,” he stated.
Ashton Graneau is the brother of former Salybia MP, Kelly Graneau. He has served only one term so far and is Minister for Carib Affairs.
The Salybia constituency consists of the Kalinago Territory, Atkinson and Antrizle.
