The Barbuda People’s Movement (BPM) has selected its five candidates who will be contesting the March 23 council elections.
Among them are new comers, Kendra Beazer and Jackie Frank. The other candidates are Nadia John George, Fabian Jones and Wayde Burton.
The five were selected following a primary, which was held on Saturday.
The list does not include prominent Attorney Ralph Francis, who opted out due to concerns over his residency qualifications.
Political Leader of the BPM Trevor Walker said the party is enthusiastic about the candidates and is confident that they will be victorious.
“The people are very excited. They are ready to go for the March elections. All I am hearing on the street is that they will be cleaning up the Antigua & Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP). The people are tired and frustrated,” Walker said.
Approximately three weeks ago, the Antigua & Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP) selected its slate of candidates for the council elections.
Those candidates are, Makeisha Desouza, Senator Knacynta Nedd, Neil Gore, David Shaw and Calvin Gore.
Head of the ABLP on Barbuda, Arthur Nibbs said the ABLP is hoping to win at least four seats.
He said the team is confident going into the elections based on the fact that there are several developmental projects which will be rolled out in Barbuda in the coming months, under the stewardship of the ABLP.
Some of those projects include, a new air and seaport which will boost the capacity of the 62-square- mile- island to receive more cruise calls, once the facility is completed.
Of the five seats coming up for retirement, four of them are ABLP and one BPM.
Barbuda Council elections are held every two years.
