Statement from Turner
The Asot Michael Team, operating in the Constituency of St. Peter, have been destroying, defacing, or placing his posters over the Rawdon Turner placards and billboards that were first stapled on the posts.
This practice is unlawful and constitutes an abuse of the honorable behavior expected of all candidates as they compete for the electors’ attention and support.
“As the duly nominated Candidate for St. Peter’s, my team and I are advocating for a peaceful, fair , and honest electoral race during the election period: Mr. Turner asserted. ”
This behavior as unfortunate as it is leaves little to be desired as we seek to effectively represent the good people of St. Peters as lawmakers.”
I therefore, call on Mr. Michael’s team to refrain from engaging in abusive campaign activities, and to allow all contenders to adequately present themselves to the electorate.
Both men are contesting the St Peter constituency. Michael was replaced by Turner after he fell out of grace with the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party.
