Skerrit ‘dishonest and hypocritical’ to call for UWP engagement in electoral reform plans – Isaac Baptiste

UWP President Isaac Baptiste

President of the United Workers Party (UWP), Isaac Baptiste, has called Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit “dishonest and hypocritical” in response to the prime minister’s call for the UWP to fully engage in his plans to pursue electoral reform

The prime minister has revealed that he has invited Caribbean Jurist, Sir Dennis Byron, to perform the service of sole commissioner for electoral reform in Dominica. He said Sir Byron, who is the former president of the CCJ, has accepted.

At the swearing-in ceremony of the new cabinet on Tuesday, Skerrit pleaded for the opposition’s cooperation in the national interest in this process and extended a “hand of brotherhood” to the UWP by inviting them to work in peace and unity with the government in the wake of the general elections.

In response, Baptiste revealed that almost two years ago, a letter was written to the prime minister raising three major issues one of which called for dialogue between the governing party and parliamentary opposition on ways to move forward on the issue of electoral reform.

He said the prime minister didn’t even have the courtesy of acknowledging receipt of that letter.

“They did nothing; the prime minister did nothing. We met with the President, His Lordship the Bishop, they were not able to convince the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) and the prime minister, in particular, to speak to the issue and respond satisfactorily to two basic issues,” he explained. “Now that they have stolen the election, now that he finds himself in office and he’s looking at another five years in front of him, he’s trying to say that his offering an olive branch.”

Baptiste said it is not within the remit of the prime minister to speak now on the issue of electoral reform. It is that of the Electoral Commission.

Baptiste also said that he finds it “rather strange” that one of the most eminent Jurists in the Caribbean, Sir Dennis Byron is accepting to be head of a one-man commission without knowing the terms of reference of the commission.

Skerrit said at the swearing-in ceremony that 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.

“If you are going to appoint someone and someone is going to accept, that person, especially in the capacity and given the level of intellect involved, it would be difficult to understand and believe that Jurist Bryon accepted to chair and lead that commission without knowing the terms of reference of the commission,” Baptiste noted.

He said this situation now leaves the UWP concerned as they question whether or not the prime minister is being honest with the people of Dominica.

He said Dominicans must redefine the electoral reform process because, given what was observed in the last election, going through the simple process of re-verification of names, the DLP will continue finding ways “in getting  ID cards overseas to people”, without a complete re-registration of all voters.

The UWP president also anticipates that there will be a next general election within the next two years.

    A selection of nonsensical thoughts that lacks decorum and decency from Skerrit. Who the hell does Skerrit and his failed corru0ted Labour are..? And furthermore, please do attempt to have our Hon. Decent intellectual Hon. Linton and his UWP Team as your playboy. You have enough of these failed political clowns within your immature, failed Labour Government.
    Skerrit is this big joker: “hand of brotherhood” “Skerrit pleaded for the opposition’s cooperation in the national interest…” “extended a “hand of brotherhood” to the UWP by inviting them to work in peace and unity with the government in the wake of the general elections.” We will expect a resounding “NO” from Hon. Linton and his decent UWP Team.
    Skerrit is a big fake and now recognises the challenges ahead where he has failed to be this professional Prime Minister to plot the development plan for our suffering, begging poor people he has abused and damaged, thru Red Clinic and other questionable behaviours. Skerrit…

    Skerrit is neither of the things you use to describe him. Skerrit has managed with 21st century effectiveness, wit and courage! UWP is led and driven by relics who refuse to be specific, accountable, responsible and move with the times. The UWP are locked in the 18th century awaiting to be led rather than lead. Any one of the recently appointed DLP ministers under 50s is more than able to run rings around your sorry state of an opposition. UWP may have a chance were they able to deselect the current leader and appoint another. The problem within the UWP is that tight circle of has beens that won’t let go with promises of riches that will never be had and secrets shared that have nothing to do with national security or development but personal wealth! Look how quickly accusations bounce back with counter accusation. UWP is fooling nobody. UWP has alienated everyone and anyone who might have been in a position to guide and support. UWP=UGLY WICKED & POOR!

    The only way to show and prove that the offer of dialogue is false, is to engage in it. Forget about two years ago, one year ago or even 6 months ago. Forget about who you spoke to and which letters you wrote.

    If you believe it’s all smoke and mirrors, then show it. Get involved.

    You can’t on hand blame the PM for failure of electoral reform, then on other hand claim its not within his remit. Choose one, which is it?

    The electoral commission have their terms and remit, they can’t call for an independent review of their own selves. While they may be important, they are a product of the Government.

    Lastly, you are questioning why the jurist has taken up the role without terms of reference. Why does it matter? Are you questioning his validity? And wouldn’t UWP engaging form the bases of the terms of reference?

    UWP but learn to stop fighting and always being negative to every idea that’s not theirs.

Yes, I do question the validity and even the legality of this appointment as long as we have a constitution that says we must have an independent electoral commission. But we have it from the horse moth that even constitution does not stop him so what do we expect. We may as well frame the constitution and display it as a historical document only silly people used to respect but not Master Skerrit, oh no, that is for whimps only.

    Mr Skerritt will say anything that will sound good on DBS news. Imagine he wants to start the process now because 5 years will give enough to provide IDs for all the overseas people using the same evidence that because he brought them in to vote in 2019, they cannot have been out of the country in over 5 years. And there you have it. Another election lost to people who vote and run (while complaining quite audibly about conditions in the country).

    “Baptiste said it is not within the remit of the prime minister to speak now on the issue of electoral reform. It is that of the Electoral Commission”.

    So, two years ago, it was the right of Lennox Linton to call the PM out to go into “dialogue” concerning electoral reform, for the same reason, he claimed that election 2014 was stolen. But now you are saying that electoral reform is the business of Electoral Commission. Did Linton not know that 2 years ago?

    Man, everything that is wrong with Dominica is the product of all’s futile and carnal mind. Go get a purging from God, and allow Him to direct you all unto the path that you all belong. You all are walking the wrong path.

    And there is going to be no election before the next the next 5 years. You all contested the 2019 and lost. Accept your loss and move on!

    “Isaac Baptiste, has called Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit “dishonest and hypocritical”

    Well, who is surprised to read this from you? You are the opposing government, not the bullying government at Parliament, as you seem to believe

    “Baptiste revealed that almost two years ago, a letter was written to the prime minister raising three major issues one of which called for dialogue between the governing party and parliamentary opposition”

    It is not the place of the “pposition leader” to call the Prime Minister into “dialogue” as you claim. It is rude, it is disrespectful, it is downright insanity. The Prime Minister has every right to disregard that call.

    And you are foolish to use that reason to claim that PM Skerrit is dishonest and a hypocrite. What is you all’s idea to think that the Prime Minister should be like an acrobat in you all’s presence, to do as you all say, not the commands which God gives him to serve the people of Dominica?

    If the UWP decide to decline the offer of participating in the process of electoral reform overseen by an independent jurist heading an independent commission, then they will have to accept blame if this reform which they say they have been calling for a long time, is not in place come the next election. And Mr Baptiste, I should inform you that election according to the constitution is within a five year cycle so you shouldn’t expect new elections in two years time. You guys always quoting the constitution but one should wonder if you actually read and digest what’s written it.
    You guys stalled the reform process (which could have been in place for the recently concluded election) by your foolish court injunction, so you should try and ensure that it will happen this time around by your active participation and not by protesting.

    A gross injustice was done to the people of Dominica in the most recent election. Is this right to try to right the ship after the damage has been done? This severely corrupt character had well over a decade to make electoral reforms a priority and he stubbornly refused to do so. Why now such urgency? Why doesn’t Mr. Skerrit try to clear his indelibly stained reputation from the Aljazeera report? Is any ordinary public servant satisfied with their take home pay or standard of living? The answer is a resounding NO! Is any Dominican satisfied with: air travel, sea port facilities, network of roads, working conditions, education system, employment opportunities, social adhesion in the country, social services, healthcare, food security, recreational, sporting, entertainment facilities. Skerrit has reduced Dominica to a graveyard, desperate and dreary.

Having answered these two questions, were you all, the UWP members interested in REFORM? If you all were interested, why didn’t you all let the BILL pass in Parliament then?
    Boss, UWP don’t and will never ever run this country. Is not what you ALL want and say. Is what the people in majority say and the people have spoken. You can bla bla from now till 2025 you make no sense because no matter what, the very same things you are asking for, when implemented you all will find a way to object .

UWP continues to allow Dr. Skerrit to score cheap political points. You know all the observers commented that the election was free and fair; your first statement is you will not recognize the government. You got a serious whipping 18 to 3 accept.

So let’s move on now but here is my suggestion going forward,:

      2. Our first order of business in 2020 should be to get an independent and reputable law agency to investigate all the allegations we heard from All jazeera concerning the pm and other government ministers and friends of the DLP like Emanuel Nanthan. I believe that should be a priority for both the government and the opposition, before anyone enters into any arrangements or take any olive branch.

        Elizabeth, you are just saying and writing things that you know not about. We mean the bigger picture, where we are today under failed Skerrit and his rotten Labour government. Skerrit and his goonies will be tained for life and not appears to be academic in his thinking and thoughts bit enjoys the beff and telling of nonsense. We respond because people like must be responded to because yo make no sense, you and other failed labour cronies in defence of failed Skerrit and not in the interest of our Dominica the worse and most poor island in the Caribbean. Elizabeth, did you know that, have you read, have yo asked questions or you jut this blind bat for failed incompetent Skerrit and failed highly incompetent Skerrit and this failed Labour government. Skerrit, as he said “go to Hell, Go to Hell, non our damn Business”. You see how things come back to haunt Skerrit? Yo better watch it, it will be you soon that we address your past silly incompetent outdated comments. Good Night madam…

        Be quiet, long time ago you have been found out to be Dominica’s greatest hypocrite living on Canada.

      Everything Skerrit touches is tainted with corruption. CBI money, elections, I mean everything. The man has an affinity for badness: bad election, bad government, bad economy, bad wages, bad roads, bad bridges, bad ideas. Skerrit is bad for the country.

      Agree so this is the only person we can address as Dr. Clayton Shillingford? I think he can give UWP some advice take time and regroup, because they are heading in the same direction as the Freedom party if they continue like this

          Mr. Baptiste, after Tropical Storm Erica Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit invited the opposition to be part of the rebuilding process, an invitation which they accepted. This cooperation did not last long as the parliamentary opposition lead by it’s leader walked away, as they always do, just reminding you in case you have forgotten. It would seem that the heat in the kitchen was too hot for the UWP. So now you are making this lame excuse as a reason not to engage the government in meaningful dialogue. It is that level of stupidity that caused your party to get such a bad beating at the election.

      How much of your brain, if any, did you use to say that, Sybil Nowell? No wonder Skerritt can have full control.

    Skerrit does nothing if deception and deceipt are not involved. The jurist could have good intentions, but once it’s Skerrit selecting him, I must raise a flag..
    What is needed is for us to take to the streets and ask for a fresh election, as soon as possible.
    St Martin is doing it for fewer reasons than us!
    Skerrit has turned “paro”, begging every boy, girl, man and woman, to accept him as PM?
    Really? If Trump was impeached, who is Skerrit, not to answer to the people.

        Thank you Mr. Baptist for standing on principle because I done say already if UWP compromises with that hypocrite and dishonest spirit called the spirit of Satan, I for sure wouldn’t be part of uwp anymore. How the hell could a man steal our election and then ask for peace? Right now especially after the Christmas we should hit the streets more then ever before. In fact we should have a massive protest planned for January 1, 2020, just to let those thieves, those honorable hyenas know that 2020 is going to be rough! We need to let them and CARICOM heads understand that we aren’t prepared to allow the information So jareeza put out on Skerrit and other top ranking ministers and friends of the cabal was useless, even if he was able to use our money to buy voters to keep him I’m power. First we should demand a public inquiry into the Al Jazeera documentary. In fact our moto this year should be from Esther 4:16 ” if I am to die, then die I will.” So we ready to die Skerrit

        Don’t bother with zero %. The individual is a complete waste of time. It is evident that this is beyond politics and more about deep resentment, most like sprung out of jealousy. Sadly for them, Mr Skerrit is still going PM for another 5 years to run things in Dominica.

        Are these guys serious about electoral reform or Dominica development on a whole?
        We truly need an opposition party that puts Dominica first, and not these clowns.
