REAL NEWS: Rumours of dissention within the ranks of the Antigua Labour Party and resentment of Prime Minister Gaston Browne could result in a General Election being called, Franz deFreitas, the United Progressive Party (UPP) caretaker for St. John’s City South, ispredicting.

Since January, it has been widely alleged that Browne and his team are at odds; and this, observers say, is why the prime minister is desperate to win the St. Mary’s South by-election and gain an extraseat in Parliament.

DeFreitas is foreseeing that, within a period of two months after this by-election, the Nation will return to the polls for a General Election – since PM Browne, at this time, is on “sandy ground” in the LabourParty.

The UPP caretaker says that it would take one more by-election to bring the Administration to its knees; and before that happens, he says, he believes Browne would prefer to go back to the polls

Apparently, according to deFreitas, other members of the Party are disgruntled that only the prime minister seems to be doing well financially.
