The Gaston Browne Administration has been unable to satisfy the economic needs of the people of Antigua and Barbuda, and they are calling for a change, says Harold Lovell, Political Leader of the United Progressive Party (UPP).
Lovell says the cost of living continues to increase, and he notes, with concern, that the price of eggs went up on Monday, July 25. Yet, he says, the Administration cannot announce a viable plan to cushion these increases and help the people.
Meanwhile, the UPP Political Leader accuses the Prime Minister and his Cabinet of playing mind games with residents; but, he says, the people are recognizing this.
While the Prime Minister claims that polls show the Labour Party in the lead, Lovell says that polls conducted by the UPP and other independent groups show otherwise.
In the meantime, PM Browne says he is awaiting the results of at least two other polls before he announces an election date.
