Mussington concerned that moves are afoot to get Antiguan workers onto Barbuda Voters List

Councilman John Mussuington is expressing concern about the
pending re-registration of eligible voters.
The current voter-identification cards will expire in March, and the
Cabinet has agreed to a re-registration drive, rather than the card-
renewal it first proposed.

Prime Minister Gaston Browne, prior to the January 18, 2023
General Election, had announced that Antiguans who were working
in Barbuda would be allowed to register there; and so the upcoming
exercise has placed Barbudans on very high alert for voter fraud.
After all, Mussington says, there are certain persons attempting to
abolish the Barbuda Council in order to have total and complete
control of the island.

Meanwhile, the councilman is also concerned that this weekend’s
Civil Documents Drive could prove to be a facilitator, enabling those

who require certain documents to obtain them early, without having
to travel to Antigua and spend a lot of money.
These persons would then be able to integrate themselves into the
community and make it onto what is expected to be a “clean” voters
list, he says.
