    Bunch of IDIOTS. Try asking what Electoral Reform means and I bet 90% of them will not be able to answer.

      This is EXACTLY why Dominica will always stay last!

      Instead of the ill based criticism- Why not help educate Dominicans with your expert knowledge of voter reform.

    There is a right and a wrong to everything in life. Whenever i go to vote for general elections there are always agents of the various parties. There are always police officers who are from/lives in the communities in the polling stations. Furthermore the persons who work in the polling stations are from the communities. What exactly is the issue? I am just not getting it. There is no way someone from marigot can come to vote in mahaut without one of those many persons not observing. Why is the CCM so closely affiliated to UWP? To date none of those parties has comvince me why i should vote for them. It is sad. Really really sad to see how our representatives behave. God have mercy on our country.

    Dominica does not belong to UWP and it’s supporters.After hurricane Maria,the lazy lying,idiots were rejoicing at the DESTRUCTION of Dominica.It was the MAJORITY of Dominicans,the DLP and it’s supporrters who built this country back.This is a NEW DOMINICA and UWP has no SAY.

    The Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force is highjacked by Skerrit.

    1/2 of the Police Force is against Skerrit. Soon they will be liberated.

    I am so proud of the people of Dominica who know that this current Gov’t is not ruling the country in the right way and have come out to express their disagreement.
    More to come.

      Massacre since u know that the current Government not ruling in the right way, I challenge you to say some of the ways that this can be corrected. Also why don’t u give yourself to be a part of the process of ruling in the right way. Massacre I do not want to hear the redundant stpries u keep hearing. I want your own perspective. In your simple way, just say what needs to be done. I await your comment on this forum.

      The biggest actor is Jehovah who spared us Sept 2017. The other the Government of Dominica – I see houses being build; Elderly persons left by relatives being taken care of by the YES WE Care programme; I know the over 70’s are getting an allowance to help them cope. I know that many more are attending the Dominica State College than when I was their age & 4 Free now; I know those under 16 & over 60 do not have to pay for hospital fees. I have seen meaningful work being done on the roads, houses roof top, new building etc after the hurricane Maria. I have seen the hands of mercy over us during Maria. Only those who did not leave their vulnerable homes died! Isn’t this something 2 b thankful 4. If we cannot be thankful to Jehovah, then we cannot thank anyone else. Only talking & complaining! Jehovah does not like complaints. Maria was over DA 7 hours compared 2 Bahamas 5 times more- 5 hours. Imagine what it was 4 us. We must b thankful sympathetic 2. Go drive around DA 2 c 4

        So your prime minister needs a trophy for undertaking the BARE MINIMUM of his job requirements?

        Where is the economic development?
        Where is the billion dollars?
        Panama Papers
        Blatant corruption

        A Governement is meant to provide for its citizens tou jours.. not just as he’s about to call elections.

        This man is making a mockery of Dominica – How many criminal diplomats do we now have?

        GET HIM OUT!!!

    As redundant as it may sound, three words which I believe came from %, is going to bring down the DLP and the words are -Whey de Money? Unless DLP can give an account of the 1.2 billion, it is over for them.

      JDorn which money? The one % paid into the treasury and he did not receive a receipt. See my comments elswhere in this forum. Monies are only paid into the Treasury not as you all think in your imagination.

    Wee Papa, I guess DLP has nothing to fear! Now you have four political parties going up against the DLP and that’s your audience? I guess you are still owing the Haitians for the last demonstration so they didn’t turn up! The UWP, DFP, the Letang Union and now the CCM are all in the political arena, yet still the four parties cannot get al least 💯 people to listen to them. Regardless to the name calling and derogatory terms that are used against DLP, Dominicans are still gravitating towards DLP, why? % we know the billions hasn’t gained any steam, neither is the electorate reforms, stop sounding redundant and give us a quick synopsis of how you are going to generate interest in Dominica and how you are going to grow the economy.

      Dr Clayton Shillingford, I am addressing u as an elderly person. Why do you people mislead the youth. You are of the age to tell them of the developments process Dominica have gone through over the years. I am younger than u but you know about the house on stilts, the cobled stone roads, the 3 ton / 5 ton trucks transporting persons to Roseau. You know of the elections gone by. Were it not free and fair when your party won in 1990? You are supposed to be intelligent (or so I think). U seem not happy but u must stop hating a son of the soil. Look internally & see what is troubling u & go to our Creator . Stop wasting time now – educate the young ones. Remember hatred only hurt the one carrying the load. See what happened to those hate & carry unforgiveness. One can just suffer a heart attack. The blood of the young ones will be on your shoulder if u continue to instigate, mislead & not educate. I am in DA & have seen the evolving of the 1980’s to now. Remember we have 2 answer 2…

    Any one remembers a pastor BUT? Anyone remembers who was his right hand man while he was accused of abusing a young lady? Well his right hand man was a man named L. Etienne. And now he supports another set of abusers in goverment while the real righteous people stand for electoral reform

  18. Skerrit must Go
    October 20, 2019

    I am angry at our Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, a man I used to have a lot of respect for. Mr. Skerrit now refuses to leave the office inspite of the fact that our young people cannot enjoy a decent long term “permanent” job with a wage they can live off comfortably. Mr. Skerrit knows that his party will not win the next general election if electoral reform is implemented. So his team is working overtime, doing everything they can to block it. That’s a shame! What disgraceful behavior for a Prime Minister and ruling party! Mr. Skerrit, in a democracy, the majority of voters decide who will form our government, not you! Not your team! We decide!
    You have collected enough money for you and Melissa to live well the rest of your days. You want force yourself on us. Why? There is a name we call people who force themselves on others, it starts with “r”. GET OFF OUR BACKS! Get off! It’s time.

    • The Truth Be Told
      October 21, 2019

      Really! He just have to go? No election in your view? The young people cannot enjoy a long term permanent job? Really are u in DA? If u are go drive around & u will see some of them on the block smoking themselves away, complaining as the likes of u have taught them – to blame someone else. they smoke & the ideas are in their head; They are stuck in their mental slavery; do not want to work. A lot of work is there but they prefer 2 daydream & blame someone, get jealous of those who work etc. U “Skerrit must Go” – u got some work 2 do on the block. U can only speak for u! The voters will talk not u or your party. Stop daydreaming , be practical 1 is going to win. Are u ready to accept? When your party won in 1990, was the election rigged? No one can block anything as u claim. God is in control – the only one who knows the outcome. Melissa mother & Father have always been hard working. Who force you? The votes will be counted. Vote 4 who u want but look around u.

    • Thanks 🙏
      October 21, 2019

      Poor pity, poor pity %, where must Skerrit Go? If you are singing the same old, same old and it’s not going nowhere, then it’s boring. I am pretty such you hate the PM, but you are also obsessed with Mellisa too! We know she’s hot, but you a obsessively pursuing is a loss cause. Old Grandpa % Really!

    Dominicans, you have to be resolute in your determination to wrestle the momentum of electoral reforms from the obstinate and badly corrupt ruling regime. Let’s ask ourselves, why is this incumbent political party (DLP) so determined to maintain the status quo when all right thinking and law abiding citizens know that the present Electoral System is replete with loop holes for corrupt practices. The gravely corrupt bunch of lawbreakers wants to use the broken system to chalk up yet another ill-gotten victory at the polls to extend their undeserved time in office. All decent minded, level headed Dominicans should keep alive, on the front burner, this burning issue of electoral reforms until it materializes. The voice of the people is the voice of GOD.

      Prove that Ibo France. Let the polls talk! Are U all trying 2 say that if UWP does not win, it is fraudulent? Persons like u & others will have 2 answer 2 a greater being for misleading the young people. Your party rejecting the legislation for going forward 2 election reform (Walk outs, demonstrations, etc) have not done anything). Pawol en bouche without doing the correct thing is null & void just like a spliff smoker who is standing in the same place with all the ideas in their head ( I am saying what some previous spliff smokers said 2 me. They have left the spliff smoking because they were only getting angry with a lot of nice plans all in their head but standing on the same ground (by the block day in day out). Hope some of u not smoking spliff & at the same point, morning, noon & night & dreaming? Was the election in 1990 when UWP won, Freedom lost fraudulent? Ibo don’t u notice u are in a confusing world where the likes of u creating more problems. Have u forgotton God?

    I was thrilled to have been part of the rally..Happy to see that the fear factor is leaving the people and they are turning out in larger numbers than before..The power is in our hands to get reform, and we must get the basic reforms that we are demanding Wicked Skerrit is embattled before the election, We know that the he Commonwealth, the O A S and Caricom have their eyes on evil Skerrit. So let’s come out people. Hope that we see thousands on the streets of Roseau soon! I am polishing my boots now!!

      % Did u pay a money at the Treasury? Where is the receipt? Where are the facts 2 really say that money missing. Monies are not paid directly to individuals. Monies are paid into the Treasury. Do you know what is a budget? It is a projection of monies (taxes etc) & monies expected to be paid out. This is not actual. The actual may be less or more than the budgeted amount. Please stop insulting the intelligence of the Professionals. Monies are not just paid out so from the Treasury.There has to be supporting documents & procedures. Go visit the department, ask about processes b4 you are a stuck record “Whey is de money?” or SMG! Pathetic it is when some person do not understand certain things but just go repeating what they hear without checking the facts. Indeed sad & Pathetic. High time to get knowledgeable in things u cannot understand. I rest my case. This is also for the others who hate based on rumours (heresay). Those overseas come visit see 4 yourself. let love replace…
