Gaston loses Barbuda again - by-election
It was clear that none of the effort thrown at the general election was here in Barbuda for ALP candidate Ricardo Nedd in the by-election, this time held in Barbuda.They didn't visit Barbuda to campaign on his behalf, but this might be because all their supporters are still in the various 'shelters' in Antigua and they would have to organise them all back over to Barbuda to vote. Primrose Thomas (Green) Ricardo Nedd (ABLP) and Calsey Beazer (BPM) contested seats. Calsey Beazer won by a large majority, emphatically confirming the direction in which the people currently resident on Barbuda want to go.
