However, he has been ignored – as Prime Minister Gaston Browne has declared that those constituencies not won by the Antigua Labour Party will not be a priority for his administration.
Therefore, the infrastructure in a number of communities remainsin a deplorable state.
Pringle notes that Fig Tree Drive is one of the most popular routes for tours in Antigua and Barbuda, and yet the road is in such a badcondition.
