Packed courtroom hears Election Petitions Appeal Case

Daily Observer Online "Opening arguments began with Senior Counsel Douglas Mendes who addressed the issues that stemmed from the flawed March 12, 2009 General Election, which led to Justice Louise Blenman upholding petitions by Antigua Labour Party (ALP) members who argued that the United Progressive Party (UPP) candidates were not duly elected.
At the start of his presentation, Mendes, the lawyer representing the UPP revealed a twist to the case stating he would first argue against “the counter challenges” made by the ALP respondents to the appeal."
