Former Prime Minister Patrick John has intervened as the controversy regarding the election of a new president for Dominica rages on.
John confirmed to privately-owned Kairi FM that he had written to Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit on the matter.
“I showed my concerns about the impasse that is going on and I gave advice to the Prime Minister on how the impasse could be settled amicably,” John said.
According to the former prime minister there are provisions in the Constitution that can resolve what he described as a “national quarrel.”
John headed a committee of five who drafted the Constitution before Dominica attained independence on November 3, 1978.
