Attorney Anthony Commodore has been nominated to the electoral commission by leader of the parliamentary opposition, Hector John.
John has confirmed that former in-house counsel of the Aid Bank Commodore is expected to replace deceased Don Christopher, who served from 2010- 2012.
“Mister Commodore is a very experienced gentleman who has served the country well and I believe he is a fitting replacement for Mister Christopher, who did an excellent job in the interest of Dominica to ensure that we have electoral reform and that democracy is alive in Dominica,” John said.
The opposition leader said he is awaiting approval of the nomination by President Nicholas Liverpool.
If the opposition’s nomination is approved, attorney Commodore will join former DBS General Manager Mariette Warrington as the two United Workers Party nominees on the electoral commission.
Warrington was sworn in earlier this year.
