What do the colours red, blue, yellow, black, orange and green have in common?
They are colours that the Antigua and Barbuda Electoral Commission (ABEC) is urging residents to avoid wearing in the proximity of polling stations because they are associated with some of the political parties contesting today’s General Election.
Red and Black represent the ruling Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP), as well as the breakaway Antigua Barbuda True Labour Party. Blue and yellow depict the United Progressive Party (UPP).
Political newcomer, the Democratic National Alliance (DNA) has chosen orange as its colour. Green is linked to Go Green Love. Missing Link boasts red and black, while Barbuda People’s Movement sports black.
For the past month, supporters of the three main political parties, the ABLP, UPP and DNA, have proudly donned their colours, creating seas of red, blue, and orange at rallies and whistlestops, amid rigorous election campaigning.
But, Elisa Graham, ABEC Public Relations Officer, is reminding those eligible to vote, that polling stations are not the place for party colours and paraphernalia.
