Symister calls on ABEC to announce new number of polling stations, so that UPP can put plans in place for Election Day

Leon Chaku Symister, an attorney-at-law and spokesperson for the United Progressive Party (UPP), is asking for the number of boxes, or polling stations, to be made public, since the Antigua and Barbuda Electoral Commission (ABEC) has announced they would be increased.
The UPP is yet to be advised of the final numbers and by how many boxes each constituency will be increased, Symister says. He believes that other political parties have been informed of the new numbers in order to give them an unfair advantage.
Having this information is vital, Symister explains, if the Party is to ensure that mechanisms and the required number of Election Day workers are in place.
Meanwhile, the attorney says the UPP is already in high campaign gear and will not be caught off guard – in spite of Prime Minister Gaston Browne dragging his feet in announcing the election date.
