Shyne Barrow, “It was truly a waste of the court’s time.”

In convening an ad hoc press brief following the decision, Opposition Leader Shyne Barrow told reporters that the entire exercise was a waste of the court’s time.  He also suggested that a complaint for malicious objection be filed against the witnesses who appeared on behalf of the People’s United Party.


Shyne Barrow, Area Representative, Mesopotamia

“I am very disappointed that we even got this far.  I was shocked when the Chief Magistrate even allowed this process to get this far.  I respect her wisdom in wanting to, I guess, exhaust every avenue so that no one could complain that they didn’t get their due process to object.  But in the same vein, my hope is that the Elections and Boundaries will file a complaint under Section 28 against Gary Ayuso and Dorla Vaughn for malicious objection because there is no way that they don’t know that I have been renting in Mesopotamia for the last ten years.  Before I was even a standard bearer I had interest in Mesopotamia and when I had my resource center, I had that residence.  But due to becoming party leader and wanting to consolidate my expenditures, I just repurposed it to serve a duality.  So this idea, they lie to the magistrate and told the magistrate that nobody is ever there, the place is abandoned, the place is locked up, all kinds of foolishness.  It was truly a waste of the court’s time.”
