Leader of Antigua’s main Opposition Harold Lovell says he will welcome former members of the Democratic National Alliance (DNA) who may wish to return to the United Progressive Party (UPP).
Speaking on Observer AM yesterday, Lovell said he was willing to consider a collaboration between his party and the individuals who have recently resigned from the DNA.
“We are happy that Bruce Goodwin, Malaka Parker and Gatesworth James have certainly reconsidered their relationship with the DNA, and we would be willing to have them re-enter the fold of the [UPP] on terms that are comfortable to them,” he said.
Lovell pointed out that the priority in relation to the upcoming elections, constitutionally due in March 2023, should be to defeat Prime Minister Gaston Browne and the ruling Antigua Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP).
“The political imperative of Antigua at this time is that there ought to be a united force to fight the Labour Party administration,” Lovell stated.
