Lennox Linton resigns as UWP’s political leader

Less than a year after his re-election as the United Workers Party (UWP) leader, Parliamentary Representative for the Marigot constituency, Lennox Linton, has tendered his resignation as the party’s political leader.

This is according to several party officials who confirmed the news to Dominica News Online (DNO).

“Mr. Linton submitted his resignation letter to the President of the party (Isaac Baptiste) with immediate effect yesterday (September 30, 2022),” one source told DNO.

“I haven’t seen the contents of the letter,” stated another, “but he (Linton) is expected to give a public statement some time next week.”

Another UWP member stated to DNO that she spoke directly to Linton who confirmed his resignation and said that an official statement would be issued later.

Attempts made by DNO to speak to Baptiste and Linton were unsuccessful and the party’s Public Relation Officer (PRO), Glenroy ‘Soso’ Cuffy declined the opportunity to give a comment on the matter as according to him, “I haven’t seen the letter and the party needs to meet first before I say anything publicly.”

On December 12, 2021, Linton was re-elected unopposed as the political leader of the UWP, a position which he held since 2013, replacing his predecessor, Hector John.

With no official word from the party as yet, theories abound as to who will replace Linton as UWP’s leader.

With Linton’s resignation, Deputy Political Leader, Francisca Joseph, ascends to the position of party leader until that position is determined at the party’s delegates conference which, according to one UWP member, is due to be held in November this year.

DNO  will continue to follow this story and report any new developments.

    I have commented several times on this very platform that members of the UWP are their own worst enemies. The vilification was swift and I was accused of being a labourite pretended to be blue. Mr. Linton as a person and talkshow host is a good person, however, he is not political party leader material. In such a position one has to be likable and we must face it, he is respected but even those who respect him don’t necessarily like him. I wish him the best in his future endeavors. Now for the UWP, please adopted a softer more dignified approach. This hostility towards the political leader of the DLP and his associates is not helping. Quit jumping on every trivial issue and focus on substance. Do not associate with certain talk shows. Think deep. they damage your brand rather than build it. Also openly express that some of the hostile and violence preaching callers are not speaking for you. I have never seen a party given so much to take down the opponent but just could do it.

    The voice of the people is the voice of God. At the last UWP’s Delegate Conference, Mr. Linton was re-elected unopposed by these said delegates as leader. Yet, veteran members of the UWP were engaging in undermining and back stabbing of this newly re-elected leader apparently because of self interest.

    A house divided within cannot stand. For any relationship to grow, whether it is romantic, platonic or professional, it must be built on TRUST. Now, seriously, how can anyone trust a party of back stabbing, selfish and power hunger hypocrites?

    Mr. Linton, nor any human being is indispensable. In fact, there are many indispensable people in the cemetery. Organisations have to go through change from time to time to re-energise and renew its self and strategies.

    I will submit that the ‘ousting’ of Mr. Lennox Linton will subtract from, more than add to the strength of the UWP.

Or maybe he might refocus his life and get a university education before re-entering the political arena and while he’s at it get a face job and a new more likeable personality.

      You really think that a “politician” can save Dominica? Have you guys not yet smelled the coffee? Politicians do not serve the people. Once they get in, they MUST toe the line of the Satanists that rule the world, or else they get cancelled. Remember Rosie D and his successor – genuine people who thought politics was the way to salvation? Think of their coincidental passing on. Sadly, Skerro is the best Dominica will ever have. At least he is open about being a crook and a toer of the line, no lies there bless his shiny clean heart!

    Knowing how statesman-like Mr. Lennox Linton is, I’m certain he will give a definitive statement about his resignation. It’s going to be clear and precise.

    Even though his resignation caught me by surprise, I often wondered just how much more one man can endure. He and his immediate family have fire and brimstone thrown on their heads by a most corrupt and despotic regime and its rabid followers.

    Mercenaries came on his doorsteps; accused of an attempted coup, and in court for over five years on a most ridiculous charge; threatened with imprisonment and disappearance by ministers; constantly berated in the halls of parliament; and this list of persecution is not nearly exhaustive.

    Leave politics, Mr.Linton, enjoy a peaceful period with your wife and daughters. You have given this nation much more than to have taken from it. Roosevelt cannot honestly mouth those words.

    Brother even me as a supporter of the Labor party know that Clement would be the best replacement for LL I for sure would throw my support behind him.
    When in search of a leader you search for one who can win you an election not one who can just win his seat because that same leader can choose to run whichever seat he/she desires.
    I hope the Workers party see the potential in this young man 👌🏾

      Yes, he possibly would be. But like all the criticism that Skerrit faced when he first entered politics, clement himself will have to face. Skerrit himself will have a lot to say about Clement’s youth and inexperience. People like Austrie will be his usual disrespectful self and constantly refer to him as little boy etc etc. But in the face of adversity comes opportunitqes to shine. I always say that the parl reps need to do more in the communities. Even if you didnt win, and you intend to run again, work for the people work for the community work work work.

      The UWP may also need a new shuffle. Some of the candidates may not have as much impact as we would like. Soso cannot compete against Melissa. It was obvious in the last election. I recommend that Laureen Bannis rejoin the UWP since she having “issues” with the PM also. That is a sure win for her in Castle Bruce over pampalam.

    When Ahab went to New York and purchased the wife of another man and the church said nothing but gladly performed an unholy matrimony I knew that was the beginning of the unholiness that would run every good thing and good people out and, it was the entrance Satan wanted to legalize everything wrong on island.

    It is sad to see one of our best politicians resign as leader of the UWP at a time when he should be surviving as prime Minister to help restore our country but sadly we allowed Alibaba the chief thief, along with his forty thieves to steal both elections from us.

    While I am very saddened by the untimely resignation of Mr Linton I am comforted by the fact that I know he is not wanted in the US or any country for money laundering neither is he wanted by the Uk or the EU in the abduction of Choksi. So Mr Linton I know your resignation from part head doesn’t mean you have take a back sit but instead I know you will continue to push good people to stand for country. God bless

      I suppose now you have a task of finding someone else talk about!

      In any event Lennox proved himself to be a bigger man than most people expected; nevertheless, whether he remains in politics or not he proves he can live beyond, and without politics.

      Dominica is collapsing, when the roof falls in no one will blame Lennox, but people like you are so ignorant and blind to thievery, and corruption in the country, to the day the last light bulb goes out in the country you will still be singing we love our PM.
      You all are to blind to see that Dominica is the poorest country on planet, nothing works in Dominica, our country has long become a satellite colony of China, without you all recognizing that. Peoples land in Wesley was taken away, by Roosevelt lying talking about he is going to build international Airport in Wesley, when he knows he took the land for no reason than to accommodate Chines with choice land!

          Some of you hold grudge against people because of support of one party or the other, in that case politics plays a significant part on your health.
          I could never feel sad over a political party losing an election, or in this case in regard to Lennox decision to hand over the leadership of the party to someone else have an effect on me to a point where it could affect my life healthwise, or in any other way!
          The people who allow such a thing to happen to them are those who live and hope to benefit directly from the politicians involved.

    LL resigning is not a defeat for the opposition forces but rather will serve as fuel to take back our country from all those blood suckers pillaging Ma Dominique.

      I agree with Honorable Lennox Linton to resign as leader of the United Workers Party, but, stay on as Parliamentary Representative for the Marigot Constituency until your term of office ends.

      However, you should run for political office again. You have served two terms. The rest of your second term should be spent demanding development change for Marigot like (1) improving the agricultural sector, (2) improving the fisheries sector, (3) improving the deplorable housing, water, roads etc in the Marigot Constituency. And (4) demand NEP employ more Marigot people. Calling for Clear Harbor to set up a call centre in the village, call for a hotel to be built at Sand Bay using CBI funds. Ask in writing and publicly so when you retire from active politics at the end of this political cycle no one can say you did not ask. Also demand that the Marigot Hospital is opened so people can access proper health care, and call for Marigot to established as Dominica’s third town.

        Lol! Who convinced you that Lennox is interested in that kind of “development of community” sweat? The man was well comfy at his home in Morne Daniel when Eddison and the gang, desperate for a chance to return to power, concluded that because he is an eloquent and articulate speaker, he can bamboozle his way to the seat of power. They always knew that the dude is not interested in the real work of a Parl Rep. They always knew that Linton is NOT Parl Rep (let alone PM) material. Did you see him on the ground during/after the Fiona-triggered rainstorms? Have you ever heard of Lennox going to lobby Ministers for help for his people? Lol! SMH!

  22. Ahab & Jazeebel
    October 2, 2022

    As a student of the Bible I compare Hon Lennox Linton’s tenure as opposition leader under the Evil one, to that of the famous prophet Elijah under the evil king of Israel Ahab and his even more evil wife Jazeebel.
    Ahab and Jazeebel were so evil that they succeeded in running out and killing so many of Gods people to the point that evil had taken over God’s holy nation.
    Under the evil man and his purchased sexual partner isn’t that the same thing Lennox Linton had to endure?
    Here is a verse that expresses the lamentation of Elijah as he watched the decline of a holy nation under an evil leader: “ “Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars; I am the only one left, and they are trying to kill me”?
    That’s exactly what has become of Dominica as the Evil one killed just about every good thing in Dominica starting with the religious body.
    Mr Linton I know you are leaving with a heavy heart but you showed great courage in a time of Great tribulation.

      You people need to leave God and His words out of your nonsense, if you do not know why you are quoting them.

      If the World knew how to practice the Laws of Love, which is from Almighty God, there would be no need for politics, because God wants to be the Sole Authority, behind His governing body in all the countries.

      @ Zikak I feel your pain but let me remind you of how prophet Elijah felt after witnessing the fall of a holy nation under the wicked king Ahab. First here is Elijah the prophet: 1 Kings 19:14 “I have been very zealous for the Lord God Almighty. The Israelites have rejected your covenant, torn down your altars, and put your prophets to death with the sword. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me too.”

      Here is God’s response: Go back the way you came, and go to the Desert of Damascus. When you get there, anoint Hazael king over Aram. 16Also, anoint Jehu son of Nimshi king over Israel, and anoint Elisha son of Shaphat from Abel Meholah to succeed you as prophet. 17Jehu will put to death any who escape the sword of Hazael, and Elisha will put to death any who escape the sword of Jehu. 18Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel—all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and whose mouths have not kissed him.”

    Every living organism has its limit. Just like Marcus Garvey had to exit Jamaica to take up residence in England, you need a respite from this intense political tribalism Mr. Linton.

    Get far away from a nation that berates and denigrates its patriots. Even though you may exit politics, I and many other grateful Dominicans will forever remember you as a genuine statesman and a most outstanding citizen.

        Man bite dogs, you have spoken for me.

        Marcus Garvey was a man of Essence for the Black people of his time. Here is a short excerpt from Googles about him:

        “Marcus Garvey was known as the founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA). Formed in Jamaica in July 1914, the UNIA aimed to achieve Black nationalism through the celebration of African history and culture”.

        How can Ibo France, compare Lennox Linton, a who cannot hold a political leadership to do something for his country, with a man like Marcus Garvey?

      Boss you have guts nixing Lennox’ name in the same line as the word “patriot?!” A patriot who has done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for Dominica when she needed his leadership most (Ophelia, Erika, Maria, attack on CBI from world powers, COVID, recent rainstorms in the northeast, etc? A patriot whose career in politics is marked by contention, disinformation, and near treasonous acts? Huh? A patriot whose signature on a letter to potential UWPwee financiers still remains today one of the biggest proof of a man willing to sell his country for a few peanuts? You call dat “patriot?”

    The same thing Dominicass did to Hon. Rosie Douglas for years until they finally gave him a chance.He was called a communist.Lennox is called all kinds of names also. Dominicass don’t love nothing good.All this people who are following this corrupt regime remember broad is the way to destruction and narrow is the way to everlasting life. Satan have more followers than God. Lennox I am giving you your flowers and respect. Live them with their dimples Pm.

    “A prophet is never accepted by his own people”….
    I don’t know what is the reason for this unexpected decision but I hasten to say that is one of the biggest loss for Dca in its political history. I can hear some behind the scenes applauding the decision but one day soon someone will say; ‘I wish Lennox was still political leader”.

    However, my biggest hope is that we will see a more militant leader willing to do what we have all hoped for when confronting the DLP by any means necessary.

    Thank you Sir Lennox for your patriotic service, one surpassed by none in our political history. You have done exceedingly well in my opinion so hold your head up high as we look to another political journey.

      Bwa-Panday, while we are yet to hear the reason(s) for this abrupt resignation, more than likely, there must have been some sort of division in the camp. A house divided against itself cannot stand.

      Roosevelt will now have unfettered access to the country’s revenue for him to plunder at his pleasure. Undoubtedly, Dominica is most definitely heading for the abyss.

      @Bwa-Banday. I think Lennox can still be effective without being in the leadership role. This is not a loss for the party, he will continue to provide invaluable consultation to the party’s new leader. So let not your hearts be troubled.

        At Laplaine Observer, did you not mean “valuable” consultation?

        I hope you did! Because he will not be effective to the Party, if he is providing it with “invaluable” consultation, you see!

      Maybe so.
      Politics is a game
      Many people disliked the man for reasons that had nothing to do with his capability to perform the task.
      Maybe someone new and fresh could make a change.
      However, If this resignation is as a result of internal drama then that’s not good for the opposition. Right now there are too many “opposition” parties… they need to be united or leave skerrit run his show. He’s bringing in all his young people even when he’s not the PM he’ll always be the puppet master.

    LL did his best but many Dominicans aren’t ready yet to speak truth to power. Wish Lennox and his family well into the future.
    My own feeling is that there should be no other Opposition Leader in Dominica, that is what Skerrit wanted. Let it be so, so that Dominicans can begin to wake up. Beware, the money tree soon dry up, nobody else should want to inherit a broken country, leave it to same ones who had all the good times.

    I am a strong supporter of Lennox Linton but in my opinion he should have resigned long time and let Dominicans take all their blows from Skerrit.
    I respect what Eugenia Charles Rosie Douglas and Edison did for Dominica as opposition leader but in my opinion none did close to what Mr. Linton did because when they served as opposition leader Dominica was one of the best islands in the Caribbean and our politics were very decent and proud of Dominica . But not so under Roosevelt Skerrit who himself said Dominica was no longer a real country. This Skerrit is not a human being, does not have the heart of a human and has all kind of faults that’s only seen in Satan himself. In fact the only reason we still have a country is because Lennox Linton was very strong and wouldn’t take any bribe like others.
    So Mr Linton although I don’t know you personally I want to thank you for service to country and do hope your successor will help us save Dominica the destruction of the briber

    This sudden resignation will take many by surprise. But, how much more can one man take? I will even advise him to take up his bundle and leave Dominica if he can procure a better standard of living elsewhere.

    Dominicans are too divided, dimwitted, apathetic and easily satisfied with just barely existing. I hope no teary eyes, impassioned supplication would make him have a change of heart.

    Let the tens of thousands of Dominicans continue to live in squalor. A country gets the ruler it deserves.

    Mr. Linton, you tried your best, you and your family suffered tremendously. Now,

    it’s time to leave Dominicans to the merciless and demonic practices of a despot and his satanic disciples.

    Best of luck in all your future endeavours.

      Right on the money. The Dominica of today doesn’t deserve a Lennox Linton. They deserve a Skerrit, Austrie and all those other spineless creatures that would sell their mother for a piece of gold. Never mind, very soon, Dominicans will be calling for a Lennox Linton, when the CM moves to his second face of ruling Dominica. See what happens in China? All you will be getting a good dose of that while Dimples will do what he wants and enjoys all the money he took of all you. Do NOT say all you weren’t warned. All you deserve all you get and it won’t be pretty.

        @ Marty, I often agree with you but this time I don’t. “ The Dominica of today doesn’t deserve a Lennox Linton. “
        The Dominica of today is very lucky to have had a Lennox Linton to stand up to that Evil man. Because of Lennox Linton although the Evil hurricane called Skerrit took our roofs our foundations are still standing. Lennox Linton no doubt preserved us from total destruction!
        When it looked like all hope was gone for Israel during the time of King Ahab and prophet Elijah felt his life too was on the line, God’s word to Elijah was I have seven thousand that have not bowed their knees to Baal and he immediately told Elijah who to anoint as next king and next prophet and the sweeping job they would do to crush all the evil of Ahab!!!
        Thank you Mr Linton for being there for us when we really needed a real person of character to stand for us. Dominica is about to enter into a new phase and just look to see how the evils of Skerrit will be crushed and we will see a new day!!!

        You have hit the nail with precision. We never miss the water until the well runs dry.

        There are no other news man nor woman, leaders from other political parties, fathers of the clergy, businessmen of mammoth wealth who have fought as fearlessly and vehemently to save Dominicans from the destructive claws and tentacles of an onerous and corrupt despot.

        Mr. Linton has been on the right side of history. That very history will absolve him from all the harsh, ad hominem criticisms and vituperation he has endured from a mostly faultfinding group of people who suffers from herd stupidity.

Your ancestors worked hard for centuries to give you a better Dominica. YOU selfish imbeciles destroyed it all in 23 years. What an effort!

The single party was solidified over the years as strong members from the remaining party were systematically transitioned (Timothy, Bannis, Isaac recently etc). We’ve been subject to some serious authoritarian maneuvers and we didn’t even realize it
