The Antigua and Barbuda Electoral Commission (ABEC) is entering a state of readiness for the country’s general elections.
Indications of the national poll on the horizon, constitutionally due in 2009, came recently as Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer addressed members of his party, urging them to rally behind the party as it launches its campaign.
The commission, in a statement, said it is now seeking the assistance of competent individuals to serve as election workers during the next general elections.
The commission is encouraging competent individuals to apply to serve as returning officers, presiding officers and poll clerks.
We don't need political scoundrels holding these positions. Let's hope that fair minded people who put the integrity of our democracy above their political affiliations take these slots. It's up to us, Antigua & Barbuda. Don't let the hotheads and the scoundrels control the political process. Help us protect our democracy by signing up to work the election.
