Campaign and polls show that PM Browne’s popularity is tanking and, by association, SMS voters will reject Marshall

Campaigning in the St. Mary’s South (SMS) constituency is
underscoring just how unpopular Prime Minister Gaston Browne is,
while the polling data shows that United Progressive Party (UPP)
candidate Kelvin “Shugy ” Simon is doing well.

Reporting on the campaign for the SMS by-election, Damani
Tabor, the Party’s public relations officer, says that persons are
expressing their intention not to vote for Samantha Marshall, the
Antigua Labour Party candidate, since they understand it will be a
vote for Browne. 

People are not pleased with Browne ‘s level of leadership and the
fact that they, the constituents, are still struggling, Tabor says. 

People are also complaining about the country’s poor infrastructure
these past nine years, and the public relations officer notes that even
the recently resurfaced roads have begun to crumble. 

In the meantime, the UPP has been monitoring the voters list, since
certain activities are already taking place, Tabor shares.
