Our politics limits our democratic potential

Caribbean leaders and their parties are known for longevity but this is something some analysts believe stagnates the constant reform which a democratic and elective system should bring to a nation.

The principle question of this discussion is “How much have Antigua & Barbuda and the wider Caribbean developed democratic governance and where are the weaknesses in the system?”

Our guests for segment are:

  1. Political analyst, advocate for Caribbean integration and media professional Alex Bruno (joining us from Florida in the United States)
  2. Attorney at law, political activist and founder of the Barbados-based Clement Payne Movement David Commissiong (joining us from Barbados)
  3. Political activist and commentator Dr Wayne Kublalsingh (joining us from Trinidad & Tobago)
