Chaneil Imhoff has acknowledged applying for membership in the Antigua Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP), following her departure from the Democratic National Alliance (DNA).
Speaking on Twin Island Media, Imhoff disclosed that she submitted her application last week but is yet to receive a response.
“I’ve applied for membership just like everybody else…I sent in the application and I’m just going about my life,” she said.
Despite resigning from the DNA and emphasizing her focus on other plans and projects just weeks ago, Imhoff was seen wearing a red ABLP shirt at a recent party event, prompting questions and speculation.
Responding to inquiries about the photo, Imhoff stated, “Attending a political event for a political party does not automatically mean this is what I’m doing and this is what I’m not doing.” She emphasized that expressing her political stance didn’t require a public declaration.
She went on to say “politics has always been apart of me…there’s no way that I’m putting down the politics.”
Imhoff also said that elective politics still on her radar.
When questioned about choosing the ABLP now, she explained, “I have seen where the vision is in terms of taking Antigua and Barbuda to the next level.”
Imhoff also emphasized the importance of loyalty to the country over allegiance to a particular political colour, stating, “It’s much more important to be loyal to your country than to be loyal to a colour.”
Imhoff became a member of the DNA after losing a bid to be on the UPP’s ticket for St. Peters in 2020.She soon after joined the DNA.
