PM Skerrit announces former CCJ President as sole commissioner for electoral reform in Dominica

Prime Minister Skerrit speaking at the swearing-in of the new DLP Cabinet

Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has invited eminent Caribbean Jurist, Sir Charles Michael Dennis Byron, to perform the service of sole commissioner for electoral reform in Dominica.

The Prime Minister made the announcement during the swearing-in ceremony of the new cabinet held at the Windsor Park Sports Stadium on Tuesday.

 “On elections night I indicated my intention to establish a national commission on electoral reform led by a renowned Caribbean jurist,” he said. “The government has invited and the invitation has been accepted to perform the service of sole commissioner by the Right Honorable Sir Charles Michael Dennis Byron, eminent Caribbean jurist.”

According to Skerrit, Sir Dennis most recently distinguished himself as the Chief Justice of the Caribbean Court of Justice from which he has now retired.

He said the Commonwealth of Dominica is “humbled to watch” Sir Dennis give guidance on the process of electoral reform.

“The terms and reference and commission will be announced early in the New Year at which time a secretariat will also be established to support Sir Dennis’s work,” Prime Minister Skerrit revealed.

He reiterated his call to ensure the full engagement and inclusion of the Opposition United Workers Party (UWP) and its leader in this process, “and plead for their cooperation in the national interest.”

“The establishment of the commission now takes the matter out of the political sphere,” Skerrit stated. “It will inspire confidence at home and abroad in the transparency and impartiality of the process.”

Skerrit also repeated his call for unity from the opposition following the general elections.

“To the United Workers Party opposition and its leader, I say the elections are over; the time for national healing reconciliation and unity has come,” he said. “All the observers, including your friends, have pronounced the elections of Dominica free and fair.”

Skerrit implored the opposition to put the “destructive rancour and revolt” behind them.

“We are one people; this is our country Dominica. Let us all work together to build a dynamic Dominica,” he stated. “I extend a hand of brotherhood to you and invite you to work in peace with the government and initiatives that will advance the national interest.”

    Don’t be surprised if this highly recognized Judge submits a report recommitting that Parliament amends the act to legalize cheating and bribery. Wasn’t this the suggestion made by his friend the CS sometime in 2008? Hold on money talks and bull…. walks.

    Why is it Skerrit that appointing a One ManBand!!!

    Why didn’t the process go through the appropriate Channels for a Vote at Parliament although we know is 3 to 18 but still let people see the willingness to be open,,,

    This Appointment of this Fellow is sign of trouble to come,,,
    According to what Marn see this is the same Dude that was involve with the Clintons meddling in the Haitian Business, and look the state Haiti is in today,,,

    Skerrrit there is no need to appoint any of your affiliated Fellows,,,

    There was recommendations done/made already by a competent Lawfully organized Body,,,
    Before you bring this dude can we work on these two things,,,

    Clean the Voter list and
    Issue a system for Voters’ verification

    Let me remind you all that this is the same Mr. Skerrit who invited the OAS and Caricom to advise him on electoral reform, which they did and he simply ignored them. This one will be no different. A waste of time. A futile exercise to fool the many, many gullible ones. Dominicans, we are too soft, the perfect environment for a dictator to thrive. One day we will all regret letting Skerrit walk on us like this.

    The alleged father of all BRIBERY “Kickback” and CORRUPTION talks….

    When EVIL resonates across the fabric of a society and perpetuates itself through self-subversion it frays and thrashes itself toward disassemblage.

    When a cack-handed Prime Minister uses EVIL by bringing his paralytic tongue, the dialect of impossible belief, the word-in-arrest festers upon a nation – it draws forward the unspeakable, for the verses of evil, whether poetic of profane, base or enchanted, reflect the deathliness of language itself, and thus the living death of a nation.

    The Dominica labour party has won another election, and this one according to reports by a huge margin. That means they have nothing to fear. With such a mandate and no fear, electoral laws should now be amended to reflect the times we live in. One cannot go to a bank and say, I am so & so, I am making a withdrawal, they will ask for your ID. Yet we still honor giving your name and profession to do something as important as to vote? This is illogical. All I am pointing out is that, with such a victory in this last election DLP should not be afraid of electoral reform because you already have the majority. Be brave, enact proper electoral reforms, and be the bigger party for it.

    According to Skerrit, “Sir Dennis most recently distinguished himself as the Chief Justice of the Caribbean Court of Justice from which he has now retired.”
    It is just a pity that Skerrit, nor the people of Dominica is unable to recognised, nor bestow upon “Un-Distinguished failed, questionable” Skerrit as this recognised “Distinguished Person”. This must not happen, this will not happen. Dis-Honourable Skerrit has not earned this prestigious name and position. Skerrit is a failure. He has failed as Prime Minister. Abused the financial resources of the state and opened and administered by himself what has been referred to as “This corrupted, Bobol, Red Clinic”, where states funds were abusively distributed on a Friday to people he called to come to big Dada Skerrit, issue cash to struggling people rather than create/offer them jobs to take care of their families.

    So what’s the function of our local electoral commission? Everything in Dominica is ran by foreigners or a foreign entity! This is total garbage! Repair our local electoral commission, don’t forget that the electoral commission is an independent commission in order to safe guard democracy, so why is it skerrit and not the commission who is seeking assistance in the electoral reform process? Total rubbish. The opposition should not accept this, it’s a direct interference into an independent body which was established to further democracy! Yet again we witness the corrupt behavior of this PM and this jurist knowing full well that skerrit doesn’t have the authority to but the electoral commission is accepting skerrits invitation to be a sol commissioner for electoral reform, it’s corruption! I wonder how much was this man bribed in order to take up this position? Seems like all these former Caribbean heads are corrupt and are facilitating corruption!

    I expected pm to use the.mandate we gave him to first unite the country and then put the best team out to help put us back on our feet. Sir Charles Michael Dennis Byron, is not a uniter and therefore will only do your biddings. Joseph Isaac, the former UWP candidate,who gave up his Roseau Central seat to accommodate Melissa Skerrit and then sent him in Roseau North where he was beaten and then have him as house speaker, is again a very bad move. I think you only put him their to further decide us. As arrogant as the fallen evangelist or the fallen pastor is, they both would be a much better choice since they were not candidates of the last election. I am just very disappointed man. It’s time to put country first and stop dividing the country PM. With the way the country is divided I urge you to not only talk olive branch but show it. As a first sign of national unity I expected you and the entire new cabinet to dress in UWP blue . IT’S TIME TO UNITE US AND STOP DIVIDING!!!!

But the first thing that PM Skerrit have to do is go on the Air Waves and apologize to all Dominicans, every one must hear him from East, West, North South especially the people in Salisbury. All the Radio stations must carry the the live feed at the same time, for the majority of people on the Island will never be moved because there is just to much hatred, victimization and bitterness amount my people.PM Skerrit how are you going to mend the division you created between Dominicans in the diaspora and those on the ground… Dominicans vs Dominicans

    I am UWP but voted for especially because of the help my mom got during her illness and death. Furthermore, although I really like Linton, I thought of where we are as a country with the banana industry, Ross University and coconut products gone and since CBI and our relationship with the Chinese seems like our only hope, I was concerned that a yep administration would probably change everything and that to me would cause chaos and civil war so late on election day I voted the DLP. So far I am very disappointed with the decisions taken by PM. I thought with an 18 /3 cabinet he would cut down the size of his cabinet and really put his best team out. Sadly he did the opposite. Take for example Rosslyn Paul, who never played rounders as minister of sports when you have a young Oscar George, who played cricket for Dominica u19 and a young man maybe under 30. Why not put him in sports? Instead he chose to groom him as next parlrep, when he becomes president and Melissa becomes PM later.

    Skerrit’s comments here are clearly highly dishonest Questions
    If Skerrit now thinks reform is necessary why only now after all these years ,rejection of multiple recommendations by OAS, Commonwealth, CARICOM and after a stolen election?
    Are OAS, Commonwealth, CARICOM themselves complicit in the crookedness??
    is that a device to discourage the UWP from challenging the Dec 6 election in court? The court may say reform is coming so why challenge??
    will the Dominica courts employ the Cottle procedure i.e. avoid in the kangaroo court bringing decision against a sitting government or drag thru multiple adjournments and delaying tactics over 5 years Over to you tony Astaphan..
    what about Tony Astaphan’s warning to avoid electoral reform because of its anticipated negative impact on Skerrit’s LEGACY?? Is Tony’s LEGACY recommendation to be set aside now??
    what about those like Parry Bellot who have been saying that election was free and fair. a party can pay vast amount…

    The opposition must first ask you to recuse yourself, and let them hear from the electoral commission…You are out of place in trying to take over the role of the electoral commission.
    Reform must not only be Voter ID card, and cleansing of the bloated voter’s list, but campaign finance reform, and use of the media must also be included. I maintain be that reform belong to the people, to strengthen their democracy, and not to any corrupt politician!!!

    Unless the patriots are prepared for tit-for-tat then Dominica will never be liberated.

    Melissa called for violence with snipers, and everyone sat back an did not let her know if you fire on the patriots then fire will be returned. Preparation must be made for RSS, because we know they will come back to Dominica when hunger, unemployment, the lack of ability to pay their mortgages, and there is no airport next year.

    So Skerro and Charley — Manson can bring the Clarence Thomas of the Caribbean all they wants, the people on the ground did not give your junta the mandate to lead the country, and all the threats will not quell the simmering undercurrent of frustration past into anger that demands fairness.

    It sure seems that your application of Michael Dennis Byron is the first step in DAT direction. The residents of Dominica will prevail by any means necessary.

    Lets be realistic. Our country is tiny with a population of barely 60,000 today. We do not need a retired judge to give a pronouncement on electoral reform, with a commission and secretariat no less. at considerable expense We had advice from three missions, invited by Skerrit, who gave their recommendations, which were rejected by Skerrits government. We have an independent electoral commission mandated by the constitution to take care of such matters. We know what is required and it is very simple. For Skerrit now to postulate to the world his fairness and concerns by making this appointment is a preposterous farce and insult to us. I’d rather Sir Dennis investigate the multiple documented allegations of corruption by our Prime Minister and which would go a long way to bringing peace to our country.

      so before you run your mouth about having right to vote. every country have there own constitution and the DOMINICAN one says that after 5 years of nt residing on island you are to be removed from the list of registered voters

      so shut up. if u want to vote in dca so badly move back home and leave there. drive on the bad roads. struggle with the $400 dollars you get a month when you work in the so called employment program, go and beg for money in red clinic, go to sleep with tarpaulin on your roof.

      Lin Clown, what do you mean by leaving the diaspora out. Any Dominican who was registered to vote before they left Dominica, they have the right to return to vote 5 years later. What and who is leaving them out?

      They should not wait for the Government to send them a plane ticket, or a boat fare unless they really cannot afford it, that is not good.

      When I left Dominica, I was too young to vote, so I could not be registered, then I was out of it unless I went to Dominica at least 3 months before the election; but as a working person in Canada, that was a hard decision.

      But now I am retired and I will be there in 2024, independently, God’s Will be done.

      The reason I wasn’t there this year was because of the hooligan attitude of the UWPites, which I suspected soI was concerned about getting stuck in Dominica, I have things to look after in Toronto. Had PM Skerrit not taken the quick move to protect his Dominicans, it would have been so.

They even took out a court injunction to block it even as skerrit made funding available to get things in place. That’s why the majority of voters didn’t swallow the ‘electoral reform’ and ‘missing CBI funds’ line perpetuated as part of the UWP campaign strategy.

What u understand is that Labour would have lost if there was election reform. That was what your leader made u believe. Again in your own understanding – What is election reform? The PM was never opposed to election reform & for that matter no one. It is your leader who using you to try to make a point, when he does not win, he blames everything on election reform. Most of u followers just hear a word (election reform, 1,5 billion missing) without understanding nothing u run with this. Don’t u think if that was the problem, your leader & cronies would not have nominated after all the garbage – no reform – no election & all the others-now election steal, dead people vote, 8,000 persons, children vote, fake news, videos.

      @weh, that is not true and you know it!

      Your UWP leader is the one who caused electoral reform not to come through before the 2019 election because he wants things done his own way, which can never be.

      He knew that he would not win the election anyway; for Dominicans alerted him about that truth from the beginning.

      And now he is blaming his loss on not being free and fair; the same song that Edison James was singing when he lost 18-3 in 2009.

      So the three foolish people in Edison James, Hector John, and Ron Green kept walking of Parliament meetings, right into 2014.

      Now the new 18-3 with Lennox, Hector John, and Danny Lugay, the new three foolish people are planning to do the same foolish thing, and you want to blame PM Skerrit?

    To the United Workers Party opposition and its leader, I say the elections are over; the time for national healing reconciliation and unity has come,” he said. “All the observers, including your friends, have pronounced the elections of Dominica free and fair.”

      Let me remind Skerrit that the final reports are not in yet. We are a free people and will fight dictatorship wherever it raised its ugly head. The fight is far from over.

    What that got to do with Skerrit. That is the exclusive job of our Electoral Commission, nothing to do with Skerrit. The man boots getting too big. And imagine I’m sure that retired judge getting a nice contract for that and you think he is going to rule against Skerrit who is paying him. Our electoral Commission is supposed to be independent, so Skerrit is by passing them because he knows they are ineffective because of him. How ironic is that and very,very wrong.

      If all that you are saying should make any sense, why did your leader decide to contest the election when the Prime Minister set a date?

      Why did he not wait until electoral reform was settled, by the electoral commission as you said they are the ones responsible?

      Whenever that process was complete, he would have the right to recall the election, PM Skerrit could not deny, but he would win again anyway.

      So it is all your leader’s fault because he is a foolish individual, you all are not helping,………………………….. How pitiful?

This is no joke, not a Christmas party and not you playing with your marbles.
      When are our people going to rise up and take back our Domininca from this failed incompetent Skerrit and this corruoted failed Labour Party out of our government. Skerrit and his political clowns have failed us. They have abused our states funds through Red Clinic etc. Our Dominica is in a mess and our people, for the sake of our up coming children, need decent environment, get rid of poverty, poor, corrupted Labour government that we take our nature Isle back and our people to much higher levels of decency in government and stability in Dominica.

    How we going to work in peace when you stand up in your constituency and tell people you remember every face and voice and you will deal with them. This void you have for power and admiration is killing you slowly. You will end your life alone, unadmired and out of control because admiration cannot be bought. Do what you can with our money now but soon and very soon……..

    Skerrit is the Caribbean’s Trump. Just a few days ago, this man told Vieille Case constituents that those who supported UWP should have stayed home and not vote at all. He seemed well upset they did not vote for him. The gall of this man in this democracy. The way he and all his men talk is like they now own the country and those who oppose them will face his ‘army’! Now, in almost the same breath, he wants to sound like the reconciliatory uniter. He could have had election reform and still have enough time for holding elections before the March 2020 constitutional deadline. All of a sudden it’s his top priority, huh… after he wins? Corruption running rampant and this is why UWP/DFP should not relent on holding DLP accountable. The election was not free and fair – the rigging did not happen on the day of (too easy for the observers to spot) so it was done prior. If OAS observers cited major problems prior to the elections and they were not addressed, why say now it was free and…

      But LL your leader think the country belongs to him. Now he calling foul is stolen election. So much rubbish talk I hear from him. But the worse part is he leading some persons who do not understand anything. UWP people think they are the only ones who can see & it is only their point of view that is gospel truth. Here you – the riggin was too easy that the observers did not spot. But up to now, u cannot give 1 example of the the easy thing they could not see. Without that , your words are null & void. When will u slisten 2 yourselves b4 you talk? the same foolishness over & over again with no facts. Lies becomes truth & truth becomes lies in the UWP world. Where did u people originate from? Or what spirits are inhabiting u ? Sorry I feel 4 u guys.
      May God have mercy on us all. Get real, get truthful, stop bitterness. Rise up and close sesame (mouth) put on your boots. Get to work. Alls hands needed for Dynamic Dominica. Votes spoke. Stop the excuses. Truth.

      Your name calling and innuendo means nothing. In case you missed the train, Skeritt is the PM of DOM, therefore, he has every right to lead. Your insults, hatred and attacks have fail so far, give peace a chance.

      So true A.P. George: Skerrit ridiculous message:
      “The gall of this man in this democracy. The way he and all his men talk is like they now own the country and those who oppose them will face his ‘army’! Now, in almost the same breath, he wants to sound like the reconciliatory uniter. ”
      Skerrit has failed our Dominica and has abused our poor people who must come to him to the Red Clinic where our states funs has been abused. As civil servant we know that the agency, department responsible for allowances to our people is the Office of the Welfare Division. This office is managed by dedicated, committed, well resourced Welfare/Social Workers who first undertakes an assessment of our people in need and address their needs accordingly. Skerrit comes in and administers his corrupted, buy loyal attitude to our poor vulnerable people who are in need. This is shameful as this is states money Skerrit uses is for the Welfare Division, not immature silly Skerrit. Where is the financial…

    There Is no bi-partisan, Democratic review of things in Dominca.. everything is SOLE this and that. This man has his hand in everything and it’s truly sad that Dominicans are allowing him to play them for the fools they are showing themselves to be.
