It came as no surprise.
Voting along party lines, the majority Dominica Labour Party voted for Alix Boyd-Knights to serve as House Speaker for another five years.
Boyd-Knights was proposed by the government while Judith Pestaina was proposed by the Opposition United Workers Party (UWP).
Boyd got 21 votes, while Pestaina received 10.
Boyd-Knights has been the longest serving Speaker of the House in the history of Dominica. She was first elected in April 2000 and was re-elected in July 2005 and February 2010.
Edward Registe was also elected Deputy House Speaker by default since there were no nominations from the Opposition.
