Dominica Electoral Office clears the air on false Laplaine/La Ronde election notice

The Electoral Office of Dominica seeks to clear the air regarding a false “Election Notice” issued ahead of the Laplaine/La Ronde Village Council Election slated to be conducted today March 2nd 2020.

The official election notice issued by the Chief Elections Officer lists all nine (9) candidates duly nominated to contest today’s election. The fake notice, however, only lists a single candidate.

Chief Elections Officer Ian Michael Anthony has said, “The General Public, and in particular residents of Lapaline and La Ronde are informed that the Electoral Office is in no way associated with the election campaign of Mr Jason Fontaine, nominated to contest the Laplaine/La Ronde village council elections.

As is customary, and was done in this case, the Office has put out one (1) notice naming all the candidates nominated to conduct the election.

Accordingly, residents of Laplaine and La Ronde are asked to ignore the “election notice” purportedly put out by the Chief Elections Officer and naming Jason Fontaine as the only candidate.”

Mr Anthony also urged electors to cast ballots in today’s election, reminding them that, as is usual in Local Government elections, each elector will be able to cast a single ballot, voting for multiple candidates between the hours that the polls are open.

“Meanwhile, the office urges electors in Laplaine and La Ronde to go out on Monday March 2nd 2020 and cast their vote.

Residents are reminded that they can vote for up to five (5) candidates of their choice and that the polls will open at 8am and close at 5pm.”

The candidates listed to contest today’s election are:

1. Elizabeth COLLAIRE
2. Tristan EUSEBE
3. Jason FONTAINE
4. Alvin JAMES
5. Jones JAMES
6. Audin JOHN
7. Ellen JOSEPH
8. Ella LAUDAT
9. Frantz SAINT JEAN

    It’s shocking that this convicted criminal can even be eligible for any election. If this is allowed by the local Government regulations, they need to change. The action of posting this bogus electoral notice in itself is fraudulent and one would think the perpetrator should be arrested………. The fact that La Plaine residents actually keep voting for this individual, is also shocking and sad…. What happened to the ‘wise’ people from the east? Some people genuinely want to serve and this just turns them off. Who wants to work for their community with a con artist/crook? Below is one of the links to his illegal activities. Really sad.

      Your beloved heroes Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro were both convicted criminals before attaining office, They were convicted for the highest crime, TREASON. So that hypocrisy you preach is without MERIT.

      :?: perplexed; why do you want to condemn Jason as a con artist and uplift your one-man rogue regime who is another worse conman :?: If a one-man rogue regime conman can illegally hold the seat of leadership,then it means any other can hold any position on your slave plantation mentality island! :?:

      Nothing in Dominica shocks me anymore. Absolutely nothing because they also keep on voting for Skerrit.
