    OAS this is your third recommendation and SKERRIT is not going to do any of it so is there anything these observers can do to give the masses justice who can help Dominica’s people here at home

    Good recommendations but unlikely to be taken up by the incumbent government as they don’t care and anyway the recommendations, if put in place, would impede their ability to cheat next time.

    “The mission congratulates the Government on its new term in office and notes that this reflects the will of the people.” -OAS
    CARICOM and the Commonwealth also stated similar observations.

    18:03 is a big statement by Dominicans. UWP should accept defeat. Go back to the drawing board. If the observers could recommend to the individual political parties, they would all strongly recommend to the UWP to change it’s leader.

    Thanks now leave us alone. We are the majority and we have spoken. No election reform, OAS stop meddling in our internal affairs. Again thanks the majority of Dominicans have spoken. A resounding victory to the DLP.

      I would suggest now that the earthly king has been crowned I would ask that you take the time to follow the facts and that too of Al Jazeera international, so now do you believe what happened on the Island is just and you say OAS should not be meddling well your king have opened your Island for just that. A mind is a terrible thing to wast so put your education to use. All I could say is election is over now let’s wait and seewhat is at the end of the line.

    In other words, Your findings concluded that this beautiful race of people existing in Dominica who are deserving of the “highest standard of governance” like all other MODERN NATIONS, were severely compromised straightway from the running blocks yet you participated in a fractured, broken and distorted system whereby those on island continue to remain in a flawed state of being despite the illusion of what may seem to be unblemished victory, BUT IS NOT. The heart knows the conclusion of the matter. In the name of decency, democracy and humanity, irrespective of one’s varying political associations and views, this nation of robust Kings and Queens deserve much better when all is said and unjustly done.

      “to remain in a flawed state of being despite the illusion of what may seem to be unblemished victory, BUT IS NOT” @Nadia Nature Isle

      Why did you start with “in other words”? That term should mean that you are extending the thought of the OAS, or saying what they said with different words.

      How is that statement above speaking in harmony with the complimentary of the OAS?

      Nothing else that you said here is in comparison to what they said–did you think that you are smart?

      When you mentioned the word Democracy did you really understand the meaning also look up Dictator and see if you get it so don’t class Dominica like all other Modern Nation because we are not. Election is over and those people who felt they have been rubbed have a right to complain will that do correct the situation I doubt but they need to be respected, you felt great and happy about the out come of the election and others don’t, so remember when you spit above you do not know where it will land I hope peace will come over the Island.

    Thanks for your presence.It was not bad as advertised.

  7. Skerrit must Go!

    Skerrit must resign. We want an interim government put in place now. Then the election must be redone with electoral reform. If he wins after that then fine, everybody will agree.
