TUD nominates 5 candidates to contest upcoming general election

(L-R) Carlos Charles, Jason Fontaine and Jason Jno. Baptiste

Five candidates, from constituencies in the Northeast, South, West and East of Dominica, have successfully been nominated by Team Unity Dominica (TUD) to contest the upcoming general election on December 6, 2022.

These individuals include Carlos Charles who will be contesting in the Marigot constituency, Ian Rolle – St. Joseph constituency, Jason Jno. Baptiste- Roseau Central constituency, Jason Fontaine – LaPlaine constituency and Lyndon Peters – Grand Bay constituency.

Just two days ago, during a press conference, Charles, who is the Assistant General Secretary of TUD, revealed that the party would be contesting enough seats to form the next government.

With TUD being the only opposition party to participate in the election – the others abstaining due to the lack of electoral reform – Charles stressed that if citizens do not unite against imposing incumbency, they will only continue to fight utilising what he deemed as failed tactics and strategies.

According to Charles, the Dominican people should unite and send a clear message to the government on December 6 that “enough is enough.”

Following the news of the snap election, General Secretary of TUD, Alex Bruno, issued a call to the opposition parties to join forces and unite to defeat the incumbent Dominica Labour Party (DLP).

He has since confirmed to Dominica News Online (DNO) that the party is working with six of the other independent candidates who have been nominated to contest the elections.

    All this nonsense confirms that Roosevelt Skerrit has destroyed Dominica and he wants to do more to cover his behind from local and international prosecution and honest Patriots excluding Alex Bruno are trying their best to ensure Skerrit is out of hiding places and faces justice both local and international

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 7 Thumb down 8

    You guys are a bunch of oportunist. I remember Alex Bruno stating they will be contesting all 21 constituencies in Dominica. We have a serious problem in this country. We are a people who hear, and we don’t listen. The union, the church and civil society has failed Dominica.

    why have you guys never shown what you mean by unity?
    you standing in a corner and asking for unity……..you have failed tactics and you don’t have support that is certain.
    I guess you don’t want skerritt to say you and UWP join forces……you staying so far away and talking of unity!!!!!!
    you have to try again and harder…….you not prepared for this

    The most serious and crucial business of governance and representation in Dominica has now tragically devolved into a “free for all of népot moun circus” come to town. You just have “to run for a seat” never mind your qualification, capacity or credibility. Help out nation Almighty Yah.

      Normally not, but in Dominica everything is possible as long as one subscribes to those very low standards this dictator prescribes. Wasn’t it him who told us that our island wasn’t a real country?

    This is comedy at its best. The only opposition party can’t even nominate one-quarter of the number of candidates it will take to form the government in this sitcom election.

    Dominica is now the G. O. A. T. (Greatest Of All Time) for the butt of jokes. The country crowned its king of comedy just recently. That comedian won by default. He’s no match or class for Roosevelt, not even close.

    Roosevelt has finally done it. The man has yet another dubious accomplishment. He has made Dominica the BIGGEST LAUGHING STOCK OF THE WORLD! Just

    You will get your ‘reward’ for this traitorous behaviour. Mark my words, no a single seat you will be winning but your names together with all DLP candidates have been noted. You won’t get away with this. TRUST!

    First impression of Jason Fontaine and Jason Jno Baptiste – not competent. Appearance matter especially if you are trying to gain favor from people. Skirrit must be laughing.
