Congratulatory message to Dominica from CARICOM Chairman

CARICOM Chairman, Prime Minister Allen Chastanet of Saint Lucia

On behalf of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), I congratulate the Dominica Labour Party and its leader, the Honourable Roosevelt Skerritt, on a resounding victory in the General Election of 6 December.

The people of Dominica demonstrated their confidence in the policies and leadership of you and your party by returning you for yet another term of office. The people have spoken and the results must be accepted in a manner that ensures peace and calm in the country.

I look forward to working with the re-elected Government of Dominica in seeking to ensure the goal of a climate-resilient country and Region is achieved as we continue to pursue our quest for sustainable development.

  1. I rebuke you!!!

    Allah DNO the USA did not congratulate Skerrit and the DLP for winning nou camem. DNO who signed that letter nou? Something you see online man DNO and you just put it out to make Skerrit feel good?
    So DNO if you got married and invited your friend and next thing he congratulated the attendees and refused to congratulate couple that got married would you not feel insulted? But that’s what the USA did wii.
    DNO compare what the USA did to what CARICOM said: “On behalf of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), I congratulate the Dominica Labour Party and its leader, the Honourable Roosevelt Skerritt, on a resounding victory in the General Election of 6 December…”
    Boy what the US did not say is much stronger than what they said

    December 9, 2019

    So what are the facts? How many people entered the island between 1st Dec and 8th Dec 2019? Where would we get those figures to fact check the allegations of the Diaspora vote?

    You all Caricom leaders have failed Dominica. No respect. Are you all jealous of Dominica.? The Elections was stolen by thieves. The Government can never be happy and God will have His day.
    Disappointed

    % search your conscience and you will get the answers. Do you think the UWP ran a campaign to convince Dominican otherwise? Accept Defeat like a patriot

    Chastanet Tell your partner Lennox to chill and man up. Advise him that not conceding is bad for his health and that of the country. he must admit that Skerrit’s leadership is far beyond the mediocre leadership which he Lennox possesses.

      The UWP did the same by bringing in voters it’s just that labour were able to bring in more because they are a more vibrant and dynamic team

    “The people of Dominica demonstrated their confidence in the policies and leadership of you and your party by returning you for yet another term of office”.

    Yes indeed, dear Sir! And the “confidence” of the people continues to be inspired as they witness the “work of God” through our Prime Minister and his governing body. As one of my facebook friends said:
    “We laborites are brothers and sisters, our connection is not of “blood” but of “Love”, which is the Primary stature and character of God.

    “The people have spoken and the results must be accepted in a manner that ensures peace and calm in the country”.

    I endorse that statement for I know that the voice of the people is the voice of God. When He has spoken, we have no choice but to be attentive and adhere to His Word.

    Mr. Caricom Chairman are you you real? “{The people of Dominica demonstrated their confidence in the policies and leadership of you and your party by returning you for yet another term of office. The people have spoken and the results must be accepted in a manner that ensures peace and calm in the country.”

    Sir, this election result does not reflect the majority who lives on the island of Dominica, but a rigged election with imported voters. But sir you are so quick to congratulate, Dominicans have been asking for electoral reform for over 10 years where were you to comment?

    SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT is the main term used by the evil demonic UN (UNITED NATIONS) in their quest for reducing the worlds population from 7 billion people down to 550 million people. Hundreds of countries have already been forced into taking part in this UN goal of world domination. The White Demon Allen Chastanet clearly stated above, and I quote, “as we continue to pursue our quest for sustainable development.” Folks please research, UN Agenda 2030 exposed, which is also known as Agenda 21, and also check out the King Alfred Plan. Go do research on these topics. Prime Minister Skerrit is only a puppet, just like Trump, Obama, etc for the few evil entities running this planet. Their goal is to drain the world of it’s natural resources, move people into city-like settings giving free housing for control, create poverty, Kill all “black” people, etc. This entire election was rigged, just like they do in the USA where our votes don’t count at all. Dominica wake up now!

      Yesssss!! finally a fellow truther who’s awake. I’ve posted on here several times trying to wake folks up on all governments and so called world leaders. They are all puppets of the satanic elite who owns and control this world. All the major organizations, WHO, UN, world bank, unesco, fbi, interpol, scotland yard, cia, nasa, us navy us army american presidents, the queen/royals/ kings, queens knights, the vatican, just to name a few. They are all freemasons.

      They have been placed in all areas of society all over the earth. They are here to control and decieve the masses. All they tell are lies, no truth in them. We don’t live on a spinning globe earth/planet and the earth we live on is made up of giants titans, dragons and enormous creatures that lived in a time before us and was drowned by the great flood. They became rocks, mudfossils. mountains are their remains. Thailand is filled with them. That’s why the government closed maya bay. Tifiti in moana is a female titan.

    An absolute farce of empty and shallow, misaligned words that has spat directly in the face of true democracy for every single soul in Dominica who was not given the mere chance to execute their full human rights in having individual voter ID cards as other lands near and far have established. YOU ARE A BLACK PAWN IN POWER IN A SYSTEM YOU CAN’T CHANGE AND SO YOU PLAY THE GAME CHOOSING TO SPEAK AFTER YOUR OWN EYES WITNESSED HUMANITARIAN BREACHES IMPOSED UPON VALUABLE DOMINICAN LIFE WHO, SOME AT THEIR WEARY END, WRESTLED WITH THE RULERS OF POWER FOR CHANGE, NOT CHUMP CHANGE LIKE HOW YOU MOVE DIFFERENT PIECES OF FURNITURE IN YOUR HOME TO SOMEHOW APPEAL TO YOUR SENSES; I AM TALKING ABOUT THE KIND OF CHANGE WHERE YOU KNOW YOU NEED TO FINALLY MOVE OUT OF THE HOUSE BECAUSE NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU CHANGE THE FURNITURE AROUND, THE HOUSE IS NO LONGER CONDUCIVE FOR GROWTH. All life is equal; shall I say, ALL NEGRO LIFE IS EQUAL IN THE SIGHT OF THE MOST HIGH.

    CARICOM is a gangster where most of these guys are on international Rader and the only reason some not in a special suit is because they are head of state

    congratulate my foot, you guys are the ones in the boys club who turned a blind eye on what have been happening in Dominica over the past years
    mark my words THIS CARICOM AND OECS BOYS CLUB IS DOOMED TO FAIL
    There can’t be strength in any chain when a link is broken but what makes bad matters worse is in this case many links are rotten.

    An old Dominican saying is “Plee Tar Plee Twiss” simply translates ” later will be greater or the worse is yet to come”

    by that time you guys in that boys club will be the laughing stock of the world

    Could you imagine if UWP won the election DNO would be all over the media and every one like Dodds would be on there now we should clear our eyes and face the facts DLP has done it again DFP set them up to get the beating of their life let Linton go back to the drawing board and think of his next plan there was no money missing
