    The Minister of finance Robin Wilson has continued to lie to his voters that he has nothing wrong to answered for with OC. He has outstanding four counts under CC and has been scheduled for court. The question is while he has those allegations to answered for why is he allowed to nominate in 2020 ABG general elections whilst the evidences against him are overwhelming?. It will only cost ABG extra money for by elections in such case. Thanks
