Harriette tells JTruth’s audience that youth say they will take ALP’s money – but vote for a change

Young people are paying keen attention to the Antigua Labour Party’s strategy of doling out cash and other handouts prior to a general election, says Tevaughn “Peter Redz” Harriette, the United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for St. Peter.

This tactic was on display last weekend when Prime Minister Gaston Browne was filmed handing out money in The Point.

According to the Harriette, a youth himself, the young people are saying they will not refuse the money – but they will be voting for a change.

Meanwhile, the St. Peter Candidate says he considers the Prime Minister’s boast of winning all 17 seats as Browne playing mind games with the people.

If residents believe the ALP has already won the election, then some might be persuaded not to bother turning out to vote, he explains.

However, Harriette is calling on voters not to allow Browne’s statements to deter them from casting their ballot.  Rather, he says, the very thought of the Labour Party winning should be motivation enough to go out and prevent the Administration from being re-elected.

Harriette was speaking on “Community Matters,” an online programme hosted by social-media influencer JTruth, which made its debut on Tuesday night, October 18.

He is the first political candidate to have made an appearance on the show, which saw about 500 people tuning in and posing questions.

Next week, the UPP Candidate for St. Mary’s North, Kelvin “Shugy” Simon, will guest on the programme.
