ZIZ News — Candidate of the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party for St. Christopher # 8, Dr. Terrance Drew addressed the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party’s Convention where he endorsed Gaston Browne and the labour party last Sunday evening.
In speaking on behalf of St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister, the Right Honourable Dr. Denzil Douglas, Dr. Drew encouraged the people of Antigua and Barbuda to re-elect the labour party based on the accomplishments of the labour party in St. Kitts and Nevis.
“I remember the days when Antigua was way ahead of St. Kitts when it came to economic advancement…way ahead, and today St. Kitts is way ahead of Antigua. The difference is we have labour and you don’t. So I think you should re-elect the Antigua Labour Party to lead the people to regain that strength in the economy,” he explained.
Dr. Drew went on to further lobby support for that country’s Labour Party as he endorsed ABLP Leader, Hon. Gaston Browne.
He said, “If you found yourself in the condition that you were in 1976 where the economy was wrecked and things were tough, it was a labour movement and a labour leader that delivered you. So if things are the same but times have changed, I think you should go back to the prescription you had in 1997 and re-elect Antigua Labour Party and its leader Gaston Browne.”
According to Dr. Drew, it is important for young people to get involved in the process by going out into the community and soliciting votes.
“And so that is what I want you to do. Work hard, leave nothing unturned, make those telephone calls, knock on those doors, walk the street, tell people about labour, tell them about the goodness of labour, tell them about the plans, about the manifesto that was revealed here tonight and when people see what you have in store they have no choice but to vote for the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party.”
The endorsement of the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party comes a week after a similar endorsement by that party was given for the St. Kitts and Nevis Labour Party at its annual conference.
