Church, business and civil society group continues to educate public on electoral reform

The Group of Church, Business and Civil Society Leaders will be hosting another panel discussion on Tuesday 16th July 2019, as part of efforts at public education and interaction, to help members of the public understand the electoral process, their role in electoral reform and the reform or enhancement requirements that are possible at this stage, and their role in electoral reform effort.

This panel discussion will seek to explore ways of reducing or preventing unacceptable voting practices, including the misrepresentation of voters’ identity at polling stations, and using all means possible to ensure that electors do not vote more than once at the same general elections.

The general public is invited to listen and participate in the panel discussion on the topic: “Electoral Reform – Finding an Effective Alternative to Indelible Ink – Issuing Voter ID Cards and its advantage as an administrative tool in Sanitizing Voters Registration Lists.”

The event will be held from 7:00 pm on Tuesday 16th July 2019 at the downstairs conference room of the Dominica Public Service Union building on Valley Road, Roseau.

A release from the Group states that invitations have been extended to the Attorney General, the Chief Elections Officer and the Chairman of the Electoral Commission, or his nominee, to explore the topic along with a member of the Group.

According to the release, the Group continues to recognize the authority of the Electoral Commission in ensuring a free and fair electoral process and appeals to all stakeholders, including political parties and the general public, to assist in whatever way possible to facilitate the process.

The general public is invited to attend and meaningfully participate in this civil discussion from 7:00 pm on Tuesday 16th July 2019 at the downstairs conference room of the Dominica Public Service Union building on Valley Road, Roseau.

The Group thanks the general public for its participation and excellent deportment in its two previous discussions and looks forward to continued exemplary participation.

The Group looks forward to another successful and educational public discussion where the representatives of Electoral Office, Electoral Commission, the Attorney General, and a member of the Group will engage the public in another panel discussion on at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday 16th July, 2019 at the DPSU downstairs conference room.

    The time for empty chatter on electoral reform has persisted for far too long. Most electors are familiar with the stubborn resistance of the ruling corrupt anarchists to make things fair. What the business sector should do is to bring the country to a standstill with the biggest protests in Roseau in the history of Dominica. Keep this up until the fraudulent, shameless bandits relent. Talk won’t suffice only resolute actions will.

    Boy, allu not seeing Skerrit does not want electoral reform? But that’s not the biggest insult, you know. It is the fact that educated men and women, who refer to themselves as business and community leaders, who hold senior positions in business, government, and NGOs, who have everything to say about West Indies Cricket, Donald Trump and Brexit, will refuse to say “tick”, and allow a Prime Minister to destroy all the constitutional, statutory and legendary safeguards that made our country free. This bunch of hypocrite men and women will remain silent while Skerrit tear at the moral intestine of our society and way of life. They are effectively enemies of the State of Dominica by refusing to stand for character, morality and ethical behaviour. But, secretly, they have plans to shout “Lennox, Lennox”, if the UWP wins elections, and come to him wanting to toast drinks. That’s what pisses me off. Can’t those guys see what is happening here? Does electoral reform belong to…
