Opposition Spokesman on National Security Peter Bunting believes the latest relaxation of COVID-19 measures by the Government is an indication that the Local Government election is imminent.
The election is expected to be held next year.
"What I know is that this government won't do anything without it having a political objective, and therefore, what I would say to the Local Government candidates, if they are relaxing the curfew suddenly by two hours everyday and four more hours on Sunday...not only are they allowing events, but the government going throw the first one...that suggests to me that the Prime Minister bowling the wicket. Something is not far away," the opposition spokesman suggested.
Mr. Bunting urged councillors to use the extra time allowed by the new measures to actively engage persons in their divisions.
He was the guest speaker at a Mandeville Divisional Conference on Tuesday evening.
