Antiguan senator Harold Lovell resigns
Antigua’s former finance minister Harold Lovell has resigned as an opposition senator less than two months after he was defeated as a candidate for the United Progressive Party in the last general election.
Lovell said he had been persuaded to have taken the senatorial appointment following the June 12 general election but changed his mind after reflection.
Lovell, who is also the deputy leader of the opposition party, has dismissed suggestions of a rift within the party that governed Antigua and Barbuda for the past 10 years until it was swept out of office by the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party.
He said there is absolutely no bad blood between himself and Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer.
