ANTIGUA’S CHIEF OF STAFF IN THE PRIME MINISTER’S Office, Lionel “Max” Hurst, has said that the opposition United Progressive Party’s upcoming protest march against government policies is irrelevant.
United Progressive Party (UPP) leader, Harold Lovell, issued a call for residents to take to the streets on Thursday to demand of the government and its agencies, answer questions surrounding several controversial issues.
According to Lovell, the ‘United March for Justice’ should not be seen as a political rally.
The UPP officials have been attacking the government on a range of issues including scandals within the police force and the latest corruption allegations against MP, Asot Michael.
Speaking to local media Tuesday, Hurst said that he does not envision that many will turn out, especially given that the party’s loss at the polls was only a few months ago.
