The Democratic National Alliance (DNA) is facing an uncertain future as it grapples with internal challenges.
The party has been experiencing a steady decline in popularity over the recent weeks, and the situation has taken a more unfavorable turn with the departure of one of its founding members, Anthony Stuart.
Stuart, who has unsuccessfully contested two election cycles on behalf of the DNA, has announced his retirement from active politics and is now advocating for the party’s dissolution.
In a recent state media interview, Stuart expressed his belief that a formal resignation announcement was unnecessary.
His departure from the party has further complicated the already volatile situation within the DNA, raising questions about the party’s ability to maintain unity and remain a viable political force.
It remains to be seen how the DNA will navigate these challenges and move forward in the coming weeks and months.
“The DNA would have done well to present to this nation some decent upstanding young people who now have moved into other parties and are making their presence felt in the other two major political parties.
“My leader knows where I stand, so it would mean any surprise for her, so I would not be submitting any letter of resignation I am not about nailing anybody or making anybody feel any kind of way.
Stuart is adamant that the time has come for him to take a back seat.
“From my vision of politics, I could have made a tremendous contribution to this country but in Antigua and Barbuda politics is about red and blue,” Stuart.
In recent years, DNA has experienced substantial setbacks, marked by the departure of numerous prominent members.
The sustainability and prospects of the party are now being scrutinized as concerns arise about its continued viability.
