    Charlo is the father of the nation as President. Which father accepts a boldface lie to his children as being ok? Skerritt told us all that there would be electoral reforms before the next election and when he called election two and a half years early without the reforms being in place that means he lied to us all including the father, President Charlo. He’s now officially father of the cabal not father of the Country. He should have opined on the offense this lie is to the country. But alas once again the man who called for a private sector business to be boycotted shows how low and vindictive he is and not worthy to be President. Even if he couldn’t force Skerritt to change his mind he has a responsibility to call out the deception. The CCJ called out the dishonesty of the government in not keeping the rule of law. When fish gets rotten it rots first from the head. Charlo is a rotten partisan head of state.

    The only last thing I will say to my beloved fellow Dominicans is this. We know that the world is watching and I dare say, that China 🇨🇳 is eagerly watching as an Eagle 🦅 in the sky, to see the strength of the Dominican people; Watching eagerly too because they have their people and “interests” here in Dominica. I cannot afford to be weak as a people in doing away with a communist leader and his evil party. Else China will view us as a weak and easy target to take full control of our country. We must stand up and fight sacrificially as did our ancestors. We are not weak blooded people and we should not act like it. Let’s send a message to the World, let’s surprise our enemies, let’s liberate ourselves from the demonic hold of Skerrit and China. Dirty Monies have been pouring into Dominica from China to consolidate their influence and power and control over us. We the people have the power. Change won’t come if we do nothing. Each and everyone of us has a part to play. Let’s Do It.

    So these jokers went to the President’s palace just to ask him to try and persuade the Prime minister to delay the election for thirty days? They could have just telephoned the man and get a yes or no answer. These guys know that the Prime Minister have his constitutional rights to call election anytime within his five year mandate but cannot go a day over the five year mandate without special permission, reform or no reform. The fact that the PM called this snap election should have been welcomed and capitalised on by the Opposition (if they were prepared) to mobilise their base to come out and vote for them in large numbers, in order to try and unseat the incumbent party, rather than boycotting the election. What numpties! These guys should go back to Uni and study some Political Education.

    The only way out of this mess now, is starting on the 1st of December, 2022 all Union leaders and oppositions should call on their workers to abstain from work…
    until Skerrit understands who runs the country..
    Mr. Savarine has his experience in this already …

    That is why UWP is where it is today.Skerrit does not have to implement electoral reform,if he does not implement electoral reform,he is not going against the constitution or the law it is his choice.What UWP had to do was after the report is published, table an election reform bill to Parliament and vote on it.Remember in the 2019 election UWP said between 8,000 and 13,000 diasporans had voted DLP,hence the 18-3 defeat.They said they had the support of the majority of Dominicans living in Dominica .Now the DIASPORANS are not coming.

    Whatever the way in which it comes – I personally see change on the horizon. My questions to all my patriots of this blessed Land are: #1. Who was the tyrant in the philistine army? And #2. Who took that tyrant down? We will go around the great walls of Jericho and take down everything stone. Ukraine people are standing up against Russia (a super power) and we in Dominica are afraid to stand up against Skeritt and his untrained forces. The matching order had been given to the people of Dominica 20 years ago but we are still stuck at the station 🚉 It’s time to move. IT’S TIME TO MOVE, IT’S TIME TO MOVE, IT’S TIME TO MOVE FORWARD. It’s now or never. We won’t wait for reform anymore. What we want is inevitable change of government in our country. Buy-Rum was a mistake. We must identify all those players who don’t care a shit about us. So let’s do what’s best for our children. I don’t care about me, per se. I’m looking out for our children and not mine alone. HOW LONG? NOT LONG.

    Savaria stated that with regards to the reports to be submitted by Byron on Electoral Reform, it was his expectation that the recommendations will be expeditiously acted upon by the Government to include the holding of consultations with the relevant stakeholders. Skerrit of course would tell you that and you of course are obliged to believe him. The underlying questing here is at follows, why was Skerrit not interested in waiting for the proper election in 2 years time and as such allow time to implement the reform ready for that election. He knows with electoral reform and cleansing of the list it is not a given that he would win that election. So, deviously as he is, he abused his power and called a snap election that without reform most certainly would give him another 5 years. What we need now is a new Leader not a Cheater!

    Dominica must be a joke,because some people want everything to go their way.The constitution and the laws of Dominica must not be followed,then Dominica will not be a joke.The minority in Dominica must have it’s way,then Dominica is not a joke.The President duties are spelt out in the constitution and the House of Assembly legislation.

    Dr.Lec.nt said on q95 that the President had received a letter from the Electoral Commission stating that,they were not ready for the 2022 general election.It turned out Dr.Lec.nt was not given the proper information or he was deliberately lying to Dominicans.The President received a letter from Wayne James,one member of the commission,and not from the electoral Commission.

    Roosevelt, not the President, is the one who runs things in Dominica. Charles Savarin marches to the beat of the drum of Roosevelt. Who do you think got him that position? Why do you think he was carefully handpicked by the Son of Satan? Of course, to do his every bidding.

    No matter how persuasive the argument against the snap election, it’s the “I” has it for Roosevelt from Charles ‘Lackey’ Savarin.

    Only one thing can change this inevitable holding of the fictitious election, the collective power of the masses. But, Dominicans are too submissive, too indifferent, too ignorant, too beggarly, to act in their best interest.

  15. No reform
    November 23, 2022

    Dominicans can do what they want and talk as much as they want but they are not going to get this kind of demon out through the normal means. Infact Matthew 17 :21 suggests that there ought to be special methods to or very bad demons “However this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.“
    Skerrit is a special case and will not go out through the normal means like election reform, the ballot or vote of no confidence. In fact if Skerrit is dying with cancer like Hugo Chavez he will die in office where he must hide.
    During the 2014 election Skerrit said in Wesley that if we vote for UWP and Lennox Linton the blood of the nation would be on us. Note again if you vote UWP…in other words Skerrit indirectly implied that if he didn’t win the 2014 elections there would be war and bloodshed.
    So to think we gonna get him out through legal means we deceiving ourselves.Things are much worse today and if we want to get rid of this monster we must take him up on his threat and meet him…

  16. The trouble I see
    November 23, 2022

    After reading this article a new anger rose up in me because indirectly I saw in this article that Dominica is never going to get electoral reform and we we are not going to rid of the corrupt Skerrit through the ballots. So we must expedite plan B if there is one.

    In a free country this statement from the office of the President would be respected but definitely not in Dominica where Charles Savarin was a government minister of this same Skerrit cabal and within 24 hrs Skerrit made him president. This is our biggest problem as Charles Savarin cannot be trusted as an independent person.
    Another problem is that of the AG, who is not there to defend our constitution but put in by Skerrit to protect Roosevelt Skerrit and his interests.
    Then we have the Chairman of the electoral commission that must protect Skerrit. Sir, are you a CBI passport agent?
    Then we have the police commissioner and his leaders that have all drunken the red juice and must protect Skerrit or all will fall…
