Ahead of the 2023 General Election, and while work is taking place in other constituencies, the constituents of All Saints East and St. Luke continue to be neglected, laments Parliamentary Representative Jamale Pringle.
Apparently, Pringle says, the people of the constituency are being punished for not having elected an Antigua Labour Party candidate, while the Browne Administration’s lack of interest also shows it has no respect for the duly elected MP.
Pringle reports that the deplorable roads in Follies – which were started during the 2018 elections and stopped immediately after – are in dire need of repair, and nothing is being done to address this situation.
He adds that the sidewalks constructed in Follies have become ponds and, therefore, breeding grounds for mosquitoes. And when it rains, he notes, the area becomes a disaster zone.
Even the Village of All Saints, Pringle says, is filthy and in need of serious infrastructure work.
The All Saints East and St. Luke representative says he has had to step in – personally – to get things going in the constituency; and even after making requests for government assistance, he has been ignored.
