Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP)
The ABLP is the Barbuda branch of the Antigua Labour Party. It was led on Barbuda by Arthur Nibbs, who was promoted to Minister of Agriculture, Lands, Fisheries and Barbuda Affairs in the Cabinet of Gaston Browne, the ALP leader and Prime Minister, after winning the election against Trevor Walker by one vote in 2014. The previous ALP leader in Antigua – Lester Bird – is the son of the ‘father of the nation’ Sir Vere Bird Senior, part of the political family dynasty who led the Antiguan government from independence from the British until 2004. The ALP website is here Antigua (and Barbuda) Labour Party.
After his defeat in the most recent general election – called unexpectedly by Gaston Browne immediately after Hurricane Irma had devastated Barbuda, and aid was pouring in to Antigua, Arthur Nibbs has remained mostly resident in Antigua, where he has established the Arthur Nibbs Foundation.
