UWP ELECTION PAGE: Has the DLP declared campaign funds to The Integrity Commission?

Trustee of the United Workers Party Norris Prevost has questioned whether the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) government officials have declared the millions of dollars that been given to the Labour Party, through them, for this and previous election campaigns.

Prevost pointed out that the law requires that all gifts worth over $1000 and received by Government officials must be declared to the Integrity in Public Office Commission.

He urged members of the media to ask the DLP government officials whether they have reported their millions of dollars received for General Elections campaign activities.

Noting that the DLP is spending over $30M on its elections campaign, Prevost claimed that a lot of it has been stolen from the people of Dominica and the National Treasury.

Prevost also deemed it a shame that the DLP, which has been a political party for over 60 years and has been in Government for 32 years, does not even have an office of its own.

“The Waterfront and allied workers union own their office building. The Dominica Trade Union owns their office building. The Public Service Union owns their office building.  In St Vincent, in Trinidad, and throughout the Caribbean, successful political parties own their party headquarters buildings. The Dominica Labour Party, a party which is over 60 years in existence, has nothing of its own, and employs nobody until election time. Meantime several of its leaders have become multi-millionaires. This is a crying shame. The leaders of the Labour Party say they are for the poor, but they are not. They are for themselves. They are not for the poor. Just as they have failed to develop the country, so too they have failed to develop the Party. Its time to change them,” said Prevost.

    This is the problem that I have. Has the UWP report their finance? How does Prevost know how much money the DLP received if they haven’t declared it to anyone? This propaganda must stop.

    I believe that there should be some election campaign legislation reform. In 2000 we saw the massive expenditure of Govt. money through the issuing of IPOs. UWP had Massive Billboards and an energetic campaign because they had money to spend. 15 years later they are out of Govt. and doesn’t have the ability to raise funds. Here they come now in one breath saying the the DLP are being funded millions but yet claims that they are stealing from the Govt. Treasury. Bollocks!!! Why should the DLP ability to raise funds for their campaign be used as negative for them while the failure of the UWP to raise funds being portrayed as a positive. Is that what this election is all about? What a change we seek? We praise failure and fight success.

    Mr. Prevost, the question is, has your party declared your funds? Sorry sir but u apparently have no idea of what the ipo commission is and how it works. The funds were not given to the INDIVIDUALS, but the party. the party is no a ‘person in public life’ under the IPO Act of 2003, therefore they are not required to declare the funds of the party. If that was the case your party members would also have had to declare all your funds as well. Why would you think that only DLP would have tto declare funds if there were a law for political campaign funding? I will admit Dominica needs laws and regulation with regards to campaign funding, but there is none and you are just plain stupid to make this statement. How much more stupid could you be Mr. Prevost?

You have something to say to make people believe you that it is facts PLEASE PRESENT FACTS.

      Steal? Is that another word for win. You all need to take your defeat like men and stop crying. In a democracy majority rules these are the rules. Nobody is stealing anything.
