Antigua-Barbuda opposition goes back to court over election boundaries

St. John's, Antigua (Caribbean News Now): The leader of the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP) along with other ABLP members appeared in the high court with their lawyers for the hearing of an urgent application for an injunction against the Boundaries Commission, the Speaker of the House, the prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda and the attorney general.

Despite all parties being served to appear, the prime minister and the speaker were notably absent. The attorney general intervened at the commencement to advise that the Boundaries Commission had already submitted the Boundaries Report to the Speaker of the House earlier in the week.

The attorney general then indicated to the court that he would not oppose the application and agreed to give his undertaking to the court that the Boundaries Report would not be submitted to Parliament until the matter filed by the ABLP had been determined before the courts. The attorney general had to give his undertaking in writing before the court by close of business on Thursday.
