COMMENTARY: Will the tides turn for the Vieille Case Constituency this time around?

Clement Marcellin

With a full slate of candidates already announced by the DLP to contest the next general election, the nation awaits with bated breath those who will line up on UWP tickets across the country. For the folks of the Vieille Case Constituency, several names have surfaced and disappeared almost instantly in recent months as if to suggest that the labour political marksmen are taking a direct hit and kill each time. But to my great surprise, one name continues to resonate and even in hamlets across the constituency where unquestionable allegiance was the order of the day, heads are nodding in approval that this time around, the UWP has eyes on a formidable and charismatic candidate. I have kept my ears to the ground and the echo is reverberating louder and louder. I am baffled as to why the opposition marksmen have not been able to stamp out this name. Were they caught by surprise? Or is it that the old political ammunition is just too outdated? Maybe the cat is too far let out of the bag or the time of change is here. Whatever it is, there is excitement or resentment depending on who you talk with.

Whether true or untrue, Clement Marcellin Jr of Penville is the choicest of the lot. This is Penville’s best chance of having their ‘homeboy’ and a constituency tri-cultural icon who understands and embodies the values and aspirations of the peoples of Penville, Vieille Case and Thibaud wholeheartedly with class and distinction. If in fact Clement agrees to run on any ticket, there is no doubt that he has the principles, youthfulness and zest to bring about the much needed change that these communities so rightfully deserve. The fatigue syndrome of labour has taken a toll and these days a hush has fallen on even the loudest mouthpieces. I guess everyone in the other camp is praying that Clement does not run.

As a boy, Clement was as we say- ‘troublesome’ but he could troubleshoot on almost any problem. Clement carried his troubleshooting skills right through his adolescent and early adult years with an eagerness to fix real life problems not only for himself, but for the community of Penville as a whole. In 2014, Clement earned himself a Bachelor of Science Degree in Technical Management from DeVry University and only two years later, a Master of Science Degree in Project Management from Keller Graduate School. He worked hard as a single parent to care for his daughter, maintain a fulltime job, and study. I continue to admire his determination to succeed. To the best of my knowledge, he understands the principle of hard work and self-sacrifice. Junior as he is commonly called, worked for 14 years as the District Environmental Health Officer (DEHO) for Vieille Case and Portsmouth Health Districts and acted as Senior Environmental Health Officer with responsibility for vector control. In 2019, he left the government service to join the Dominica Cooperative Societies League Ltd as a Business Development Officer. He lectures part time at the Dominica State College but also finds time to run his game shop and to chill out on the block with the guys.

None of these accomplishments qualifies him more than his personality and contributions to community life. If Clement decides to contest the upcoming election, the constituency will for the first time have a ‘many men in one man’ advantage-a father, an educator, a businessman, a community leader, a counselor, an ambassador and some people even say a hero although I would be less inclined to confer this on him but I know eventually, the community will. In fact his shyness for self-admiration is the only hold back for this bestowment. Whether fact or opinion, no one can dispute that he stands tall on values, self-discipline, and love for community.

Clement embodies youth and youthfulness and has a unique way of connecting with seniors. His delicate side comes alive when he interacts with kids and infants. He is always keen to listen, empathize, and offer himself to others. I believe this young man has seen so many unfulfilled dreams lost and the growing unemployment problems within the communities have surely kept him up for long hours at night. I am sure his entry into politics or devotion to public life would be motivated by a desire to create opportunities for all peoples of the community. He once told me casually, “nothing I want to see more than youth employment, the best quality of healthcare for all and the implementation of social programs which empowers all”. It is his love for young people and the time he devotes to talking with them that led to the “big brother” nickname. For those who really know him, he would shy away from praise and admiration. During his tenure as DEHO, Clement went to every house and every home, high or low, rich or poor. He remains a familiar face, though with a spectrum of smiles and emotions to touch to every heart. I am really not sure how he did it. In fact, no one knows, unless of course it’s just naked in your DNA. Clement has the DNA and the natural ability to connect with people.

And to speak of Christian values, let me just say who he is without reservation. Clement was brought up entrenched in Christians values and have not departed from its core principles. He is a man of faith with tolerance for all beliefs and unbeliefs. While everyone may not agree with his Christain philosophy- hardly anyone can question his honesty or love for people and country. And yes, there are things Clement despises: injustice, dishonesty, opportunities for some and not all, suppression of freedom to expression and the lies, deceit and crude dirty politics. Clement hates intimidation with a passion.

Even more outstanding are his contributions to community life. At the tender age of 16, he became the youth leader of his church and subsequently was elected as the Public Relations Officer (PRO) for a community-based youth empowerment group: Penville Ambitious Youth (PAY) which embarked on several community projects. At the age of 21, he became an ambassador for Penville and served with distinction as Area Youth Representative on an adhoc committee of the then Vieille Case Cooperative Credit Union and went on further to serve on the Supervisory Committee and shortly thereafter, voted as the Chairman of that committee. This journey opened new doors and landed him on the Supervisory and Compliance Committee of the National Cooperative Credit Union Ltd for two consecutive terms as chairman. In 2016 he became a director on the B.O.D of the National Cooperative Credit Union Ltd whilst simultaneously serving as the Chairperson of the Credit Committee at the Dominica Cooperative Societies League Ltd. Clement can be many persons in one man- a talent that he so effortlessly personifies! 

Clement also presently serves as a Director on the Dominica Cricket Association and as Second Vice president since 2018. He is the founder and president of the Gladiators Cricket Club since 2014. He has represented his community at various sporting tournaments especially cricket. Very dear to his heart is reggae music, drumming, motorsports and a good lime on the block. Clement is a community coordinator in chief.

Even though I have not spoken to Clement myself about his intentions, I think the public has a right to know and vet their candidate. The question of whether he will run or not is just not going away and with every passing day the interest in his candidacy is becoming more a staple at the dinner table than a bedroom discussion. Could there be a blue undercurrent that is moving the tides to his shores? I guess time will tell.

I posed the question to a group of guys on the block and asked- what if what I am hearing is true and Clement Marcellin runs this time around? Without any thought processing, the answer came out clear and simple- “we will embrace our guy” As if not satisfied and wanting to appease my own ego, I pose the same question in Thibaud. “Oui man, monsieur se youn bon boug” which in Standard English means, yes man, this guy is a good man, a clear indication that he already has the Thibaud endorsement. Across Vieille Case, the silence speaks louder than words. There is just uneasiness. Most people do not want to talk about it- either because they are ideologically loyal or they are just too unsettled and afraid to think of the prospects of real change.  Right now the ball is in Clement’s court- whether he decides to dribble it around, kick it off field, or take a direct hit at the goal post, is a decision he has to make now and fast.

      It will pay off. Skerrit will go and be replaced by this up and coming young man into politics. He will be well directed because the UWP leader and candidates are very good people, well poised and intellectual and with their decency in politics, unlike failed Skerrit corrupt, failed Bobol Labour Party. Skerrit and corrupt labour government, They have shamed us, disappointed us and tarnished the name of our isle of Beauty Dominica.
      All Dominicans, at home and abroad, please come tighter to save our island of splendour, Isle of beauty before these failed Labour politicians and corrupt labour government cripple us into deep poverty and starvation. Skerrit and his bunch of failed 18 government ministers must ASAP, Get Out, Go away, Run home and don`t come back. Skerrit must Go. We welcome Hon. Lennox Linton, and trusted professional UWP Team. Domininca let us save our Isle of Splendour and Beauty and back to some level of decency and good governance. Good Luck UWP Team. We await you.

    I like this young man and if politics is what he wants to go, pursue your dreams, my dear.
    However, here are my thoughts on things. If it is one parliamentary representative that check is people very well is the Prime Minister. And let us be real about this it will be very hard to defeat the man because statistics show that most often when a leader of a party hails from a certain village/ or place, the people throw support behind them.
    We welcome this young man, all the young people and women who would enter the scene but to win the seat that he is running for, is quite frankly a near impossible task.

      Carlty you talking nonsense. What is your idea of treating his people well? What form of development is in the constituency of VC? Apart from handouts, ham and turkey for christmas, concurls and snacks and braff, roads leading to his own house what is happening in the area? Whether Clem win or not its a blow for Skerrit that this young man can face up to him and this makes him very uncomfortable. If you dont know why yet you will soon find out. I will wait with popcorn for you to tell us what exactly Skerrit has done is VC. If you are talking about job for his boys and encouraging begging you not ready yet. He only announce building homes because elections coming and I still consider this handout. If the place was developed people would be able to walk into a bank and finance their homes not wait on a two by four handout.

        March 14, 2019

        SMH, This is the problem I have with politics and partisanship. Nobody is saying that everything is perfect and development works are complete. We are quit to call out and say that the man is giving people handouts. We completely ignore the things that the man have done:
        Building roads, schools, homes, bridges; Assistance in education, small business grants, DYBT, NDFD; Free medical care for those living with HIV, Social security scheme programme, eye care programme; low-interest loan for agriculture and education as low as 2%, mortgage loans as low as 4%, how they assisted businesses to stay afloat and more and my dear, I assure you, he ensures that his constituents are always top on his list. Penville and VielleCase look nothing like they used to years ago, trust me. It’s even better communities in town. If you want to list the areas where improvement is needed, do so. But don’t downplay the man’s effort. You’ll only appear biased and insincere.

        Carlty wrote this nonsense on DNO……well we know who his blind follower is:…..”We completely ignore the things that the man have done: What has Skerrit, this is so called man has done?. Skerrit has killed our economy, Skerrit has reduced our people to poverty, Skerrit`s corru0t Labour government has a lot to account for, for example the Bin Bobol, the Fertilizer Bobol and people like you shame yourself, condoned this thievery and BS in government by a very immature child playing politics as if it is game. Lets mentioned other failures. That corrupt illiterate Labour failed government has killed our agriculture and turned to our people to beggars fr votes. The Red Clinic has been an insult to our poor people who has been used and abused to vote corrupt Labour leadership and candidates into Skerrit failed and corrupt Labour government. So Carlty, wake up, smell how dirty and stale and corrupt this Labour coffee is. Politically toxic, dangerous and you have been made to drink it. Go

Let me tell you openly from where I sit, on the 3rd Floor. This man Skerrit is no role model, he is extremely immature and we know not what exactly he stands for. For an immature man, know nt of politic and became this star with no strips has killed our agricultural sector, yo telling us to recognise this nonsense….are you serious? This man Skerrit has created the Red Clinic, indiscrimatley handing out cash to people while hundreds que at entrance f the Financial Centre quing up waiting to see Skerrit to be corrru0ted and used and abuse for a few pieces of corrupt cash? Were are the jobs, or is it or tax payers money he has consistently and instantly abused and the Finances and the Audit Department sat there unable to do anything. Skerrit must be arrested for the misuse and abuse of states funds. Skerrit has failed us.

        You all need to stop this one-sided pretentious views on political matter. Stop it with partisan politics and be real when looking at things and hypothesizing. Everyone wants their parties to win a clean sweep and of course, will say and see in their benefit but do you really think everyone shares your personal views of the Prime Minister or everyone shares your personal views of the opposition leader? No. They don’t and the reality is the people from the Vielle Case constituency support the PM and it is clear as day. Junior is a very popular young man amongst the youth in Penville true, but so was Alex among the majority of Penville. But the reality is that firstly it’s not just Penville, secondly, the man compared to other reps support his people and them, him, the seat is a DLP stronghold, and last it is hard to beat a leader in their constituency. Look an example even in DLP’s prime, no one could remove the hold of the UWP in Marigot.

      “If it is one parliamentary representative that check is people very well is the Prime Minister….” Carlty, you are a blind flower of Skerrit, no wonder you may not know how a thief will get into your house, no matter how much yo lock up. Skerrit has been checking on his so called people to weigh the level of poverty and deprivation he has bought them while some of the big wigs within the Labour government has enjoyed great wealth an patronising while your people are in deep poverty. Skerrit and his corrupt Labour government never had Vielle Case and the people of Domininca at heart. it was and still is a fake show, a shamble, a thievery to appease and drag poor and vulnerable people and families to his corrupt handouts, Red Clinic Bobol, corruption practices. This is a big sin Big Bobol massive corruption and insult to the poor people of Vielle case area and Domininca on a whole. Skerrit needs to be kicked out, get Lost, go repent, stay out of politics. Skerrit failed Vielle Case…

        No. Sir, I am not a “Blind Flower” of Roosevelt Skerrit. I actually love the science of politics. Plus, it’s useless to have a decent conversation with you because all you do is bully people who do not agree with your ideas (under every post like it’s a paid job). Classic Narcissism. Listen, as long as Roosevelt Skerrit runs, DLP will have the majority. why? because, in reality, the majority of people support the man… NOT THE DLP but Roosevelt Skerrit. Why do you think the UWP’s opposing strategy is targeted mainly at RS? To break the DLP is to break Roosevelt Skerrit. Unlike the UWP whose base comes from what the DLP did wrong or what the DLP didn’t give someone. The UWP has no real policy, strategy or plan. For the past years, they opposed and the only plan is a so-called “upgraded version of the DLP’s plans and policies”. Same tactic as with UWP vs DFP. The minute you quit the pretence of ignorance, you will see for yourself.
        Blessed day sir.

    After reading this article in its entirety, this young man certainly has the intellectual necessities and temperament to lead and follow, listen and learn. The bible said a child shall lead them, and remember it was Joshua who lead the people into the Promise Land. I wish the youth all the best and it is always refreshing to have youth people in the conversation as it pertains to transforming a nation.

IF you you are worse off today I want you to vote with a THUMBS UP. Now if you name is Chris, Skerrit or Stellar please don’t vote.

Skerrit & his Labour clowns has failed Vielle Case, failed Domininca and every other Village in Domininca. This is a fanfare, hype up man in politics who never has and does not have the qualities to be head of struggling Dominica where he has failed with everything of socio-economic development that our Domininca has lost as we no longer export goods to bring in income for our poor struggling farmers, families and vendors. Those who have and continue to profit from Dominica’s limited resources are the big boys overseas and in Domininca in the sale of our birth right, our passports. Where has this money gone to? Who has stolen it? Who received cash handout? We are still in poverty, Dominica is behind God`s back, money abused.

    @ from Ittassi we love, did I hear you refer to Skerrit as the Christ-like leader? If so repent because this passage contradicts your statement: New International Version
    “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.” My friend when Skerrit became our parlrep 20 years ago, I can tell you he came in very broke and poor and could not afford a bicycle, let alone house or car. On the other hand many of us were well off, with some having their big house, pickup, money saved in the bank and our banana, yam, pepper, dasheen, plantain plantation. After 20 yrs the poor man became a super rich multi millionaire, while those he met well off he made them begging poor and are left with nothing to turn too as Skerrit destroyed everything we had. So please shut because you don’t know a thing.

Skerrit is a failure, he is log gone and his reputation is already tarnished and look who is trying to raise a dead fish from the soil. There is nothing that Skerrit can do for Domininca now, but to get lost. get out of our country`s business, yo have failed us big time so go Meet your barking friends “Man Bites Dogs” woof woof and Kid on the Bock, who has and will never grow up. He is wearing political bobol diapers and has contaminated, like Skerrit the decent environment of Dominica’s politics and decency in government. Skerrit has failed our farmers, vendors and these Kid on the Block Man Bites Dogs just don’t care, but its all about Skerrit.
        We need decency in the government of Dominica. We will have the UWP under Hon Lennox Linton and his professional team who will be role models for our up coming young political
        people. Skerrit Get…

      So kid, which church and pew is the correct one then? Please don’t tell me is the church of Skerrit, where the objective of it’s members is to become rich by all illegal means available because I can tell you Clemo could have been part of that church because he has been contacted several times. But that he rejected and like Moses of old, chose rather to suffer with those that seek to work and do right instead of owing the Jumbee

      This Kid job is not too intelligent, no smart nor knowledgeable of the issues affecting Domininca. Kid, childish, immature, whatever job is to promote Skerrit that failed Odd Minister. That Childish politician. Skerrit has no decorum of any intelligence that you will hear from of Mia Motley, Ralph Gonsalves, Lennox Linton, Eugenia Charles, Dr. Fontaine, Eddison James, Pierre Charles etc. These people loved Dominica and gave up everything to serve us and they did well, be it Labour, UWP or Freedom. Rupert Sorhaindo has stained himself, he jumped ship from decent Freedom to corrupt Labour government under this childish Skerrit and corrupt incompetent Labour. Look where he is today, an intelligent teacher, principal, has reduce himself so low to that of Skerrit and his boom boom flies. All the ethics and decency he taught us , he now practices the opposite all in the name of Skerrit. What has Skerrit offered him? Rupert, Domininca comes first. Skerrit failed(mark is 8%). Skerrit get lost.

    Sorry PM, we gave you 20 yrs to serve us and you failed so now we have a candidate we can trust so me and my three Family votes are gone! Look PM 20 yrs is a lot of time that any serious representative could make life better for us the people. But the truth is, we the voters of the Vielle case constituency made life better for you but in exchange, you made life worse for us. When we voted you as parlrep you were broke, single and an unknown man in the constituency, where as most of us were well off and didn’t have to depend on a politician to do anything for us. Right now should anything happen to you the future of your family is safe while you took everything from us and left us poor, naked and nothing to build a future on. You used us to climb the ladder but every step you took you pushed us down the ladder as we have no more bananas to sell, no more Ross University to sell our produce to and no more to hold to.

Highly qualified and professional, a feat that Skerrit has failed to raise up to. s far as Skerrit is concerned “Show me your friends and I tell you who you are…”. example a very shamed Astaphan talking BS everyday to Skerrit and now has him in a mess, way low below any sense of decency. Skerrit is a failure, step aside with your corrupt failed Labour government and make way for decent people.

Although DNO did not confirm him as the up candidate see the amount of perps he getting man. He reminds me of when Joshua Francis was announced as UWP candidate for the 2014 election, in the Roseau South constituency, a DLP stronghold, going against a mighty Ambrose George. Clement seems even more popular than Joshua at a time when Skerrit seems to be on an all time low. I know Clemo and though I still red, I have to say kudos to the uwp for attracting a person like Clemo. It’s going to be a very tuff election but I must say uwp is getting some top players that are ready to sacrifice job, money and prestige to run for free, which shows their willingness to put country first! Though I still Red, I must say I am very impressed with them and might seriously consider adding some white paint to my redness because Da is in trouble at this time.

    Dominica has been on a downward trajectory since Skerrit’s ascension to the apex of government. This comes at no surprise. Opaqueness, corruption, divisiveness, immortality, recalcitrance, greed, victimization, persecution have been at the centre of the current regime modus operandi. The country now needs men of integrity, impartiality, industry, empathy, humility and intelligence to buck the present trend. Candidates like Clement Marcellin offer hope for the future.

It’s about being qualified for electoral office and what he’ll be able to contribute towards the development of the Island, therefore looks is of irrelevance! The biggest excitement is that he seems to be someone who can challenge the status quo by giving the incumbent who has been much loved and popular in the constituency. We’ve made a mistake by electing looks to handle the affairs of the Island rather than competence and here we are in a quagmire with bad governance and leadership! Therefore,if this man seems to be better qualified than the present parlrep, the people should vote for him in masses! We need to remember that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder! Beauty is also skin deep! How one is born is no fault of anyone, but how one carries his or herself is of utmost importance!

    I know Clement personally and as a constituent I can tell you that if he is the UWP candidate Skerrit would be put under a lot of pressure for the first time in his political life. In fact with my knowledge of Skerrit, if Clement is uwp candidate I would not be surprised that to hear Skerrit runs out of the country or, he never calls election because PM has weak nerves. Just this article today will raise Skerrit pressure because he is a very coward person. Clemo is very popular in his home village of Penville, that has more than half of the votes of the Vielle Case constituency and he is well loved and respected in Vielle Case and Thibaud. Clement is a church person, a sportsman, a health inspector, owns his own business and yet, a very down to earth person. He has a good chance of becoming the first parlrep from Penville and will no doubt be the first government minister from Penville and I would not be surprised to see him become their first PM. If he goes up PM is in trouble

    Skerrit has failed the people of V/case, Penville and Thibaud miserably! Yes, he built his mansion in V/ Case so he had to build roads and fixed the playing field that forms part of his mansion to enhance the value of his house. But after yrs in office, where are our young people? We don’t see them of the cricket, football or basketball field. We don’t see anyone opening a little shop, no one getting married or building a little house. The place is dead, dead, dead. As for Thibaud I still cannot understand why anyone there voting for Skerrit. PM went on a mission to punish, if not destroy Thibaud. He closed their school, killed a Cemetery he met that was already tested and approved by PWD; He and Walter reduced the size of their village to the bridge by the playing field which means they made the field, where the school use to be, the health Center all that as legally part of Paix Bouche, including Tete Plat. UWP bought land for village extension & they moved it to Paix Bouche

    ISkerrit is not as popular in his constituency as some think. In fact Skerrit has not done muych in the constituency, to make the villages better and to present opportunities to constituents. What he has done is to keep us down is use us to build his brand. Go to Penville, Vielle case and Thibaud and show me what he did to improve lives. In Penville, which is his stronghold he built some houses and paved the roads. But what he did to their farms? On a Tuesday & Saturday Morning the amount of truck loads of Penville people that would go to the possie markets to sell is no more. The people would just go to the bank and buy a pickup, build their house and open their little shop. They have lost that independence! In his home Village of V/ case he has done nothing except things to benefit him. The village is empty as the majority of people fled, many shops are closed, houses abandoned, school empty with no more than 30 students, sports, agriculture, church and health is a disaster.

    Clement is bright, well respected, very humble, God fearing, a man of Truth that will not compromise his faith for anything (I can tell you had it not been for that he would be very deep in the Skerrit cabal), a hard worker, a community person, very Charismatic and really all the good qualities one would want in government. If he is going up on a UWP ticket I will not only vote for him but I will be deeply involved in his campaign. Like I said before, Penville has 75% of votes in the V/Case constituency and I know he will get at least 45% of the votes. In Vielle Case he will get at least 25% of the votes and in Thibaud, he will get at least 60% of votes. So those who think and say No one can beat Skerro, tell them I a Potto labor tell them they know nothing. The V/case constituency is far worse than what PM met. Penville is about agriculture and I remember when farmers would have how many pick up loads of bananas and produce to sell at the P/Mouth market. Today we have nothing man.

    March 11, 2019

    I am from Penville and a poto labor, a dihard Skerritite, until the car accident that took the lives of five of our young, brilliant and talented young men, which had me to think twice. It was at that time I put my political glasses on a side and began to think independently. I realized that the PM, though he helped many individuals from Penville and the constituency, he never did much to get us off our crouches but was did what he did to remain in power. It was at that time I said I wouldn’t vote in the next election because I decided not to vote Skerrit again and UWP never had a good candidate. But if Clement goes up on a UWP ticket I would not be surprised to see him defeat PM in the Vielle case constituency. Clemo has all it takes not only to beat Skerrit but the potential first ParlRep from Penville, who is good enough to hold any ministry and, our potential first PM from Penville. Here are some facts: 75% of constituency voters are from Penville and we love Clemo.

    What an endorsement. Charles Stanley Intouch Ministries in Atlanta Georgia once said: It you do not take chances, you are not giving God the opportunity perform miracles in your life.

    I have said it here before, Parliamentary form of Government lends itself to dictatorship. It is the media that must unbiasedly serve as the voice of the people, although that is in effect the legal responsibility of the Opposition.

    What I read about this young man seems to represent the necessary infusion of new blood in Dominica’s politics, and he seems to have developed the acumen to succeed.

    Anytime individuals remain in power too long, ultimately it usually represents itself as a type of dictatorship. Change in necessary. How many times will a banana tree bear a bunch? would you buy new furniture to put in your house, and still keep the old. Nope, you make space for the new one except if you wish to put the new one on top of the old one. Then you end up with congestion, lots of it.

        Toplet, good response, but I have one correction for you said?

        “Can you believe persons are liking that comment omg you people are sick!

        Should read: Can you believe that “people” or “readers” are liking that comment, OMG you people are sick”

        Not persons”, stop abusing the word “persons”, it is just singular and plural. It sickens me to read and her people say and start a sentence with : “Persons must this and that etc.

        Refer to these people as, for example: “Can you believe that “people” or “Readers”, or critics are liking that comment?
        I hope this is helpful. Never start a sentence, discussion with the word “Persons”. Refer to who they are. For example, Police officers are….etc etc etc”. Passengers (not persons on a bus) on the bus were singing theirway to the honest UWP Rally. Hope helpful

    well this is someone speaking about Clemment and not himself…….he is already out there on the market……and i haven’t heard him say a word.
    it comes across like he has support out there in the constituency that de PM is running…….i like that!!!

    if he is such a threat ……..knowing our PM cherishes his Royalty Monarch status…de DR DR might be overwhelmed.

    Skerrit should go run for Roseau North instead!!!!

    Go for it bro!!!! With honesty, integrity, accountability and love for Waitikubuli as your platform, Skerrit is already done. He hates all these qualities,!!! Penville is Skerrit’s only stronghold. By having him on the canvass in Penville, he is already in trouble,because he is not that popular in Thibaut and Vieillecase.
    You look like the total package!!! Once is to contest against this brutal leader, Skerrit, I can even accompany you on your house to house visits!!!Accept the challenge man!!!

    Quite impressive and this young man is WELL suited for this job, more so than the incumbent was and up to this present day has been. Skerrit pretends to be a man of the people but was he before entering into politics? Here we have it, a man very qualified and versed, morally astute, a spiritual leader and a great example of one who has pulled himself up by his own boot string with the grace of God Almighty and loving support of family and friends .

    This young man is a great product of the community and one who will bring back pride and dignity to the people of his constituency. Enough of the exploitation of the limitations and needs of the people for political gains. It’s time to treat the people like they truly deserve. Show Skerrit what it means to create an enabling environment for people to develop and flourish, independent of hand outs and the mendicancy that he wishes to promote in this country.

    As for me and my neighbour we are not voting Labour! Never again me Seh!

    This guy is well qualified for the job but I’d be very disappointed if Roosevelt Skerritt lost his seat. I say that because I’m looking forward to Lennox Linton and the new speaker of the house dishing out the same blows that Roosevelt dished out.

      Even if Skerrit does not lose his seat,he won’t stay in opposition..He is an inarticulate coward.A braggadocio… Reggie, Blackmore and a few others will quit DLP,rather than stay in opposition, and they will let Ian again try to rebuild,while singing “”I Shall Not be Moved”””,sweating from something strong taken in from a BOTTLE..One thing I know is that the world is small..Hide nah!

      However this guy is dangerously competent an accommodating. He comes across as an intellectual and the outgoing Pal rep of Vielle Case will be gone and in tears too. It its time that Skerrit goes, out, get lost, go away, he is and has been a damn failure and the worse PM Domininca ever had. Skerrit must Go and we welcome Clement Marcellin. We nee discipline and professional people in g0vernent and thanks to in coming Prime Minister Hon Lennox Linton nd his professional UWP Team, a breathe of fresh Political and government air is what we need. the dirty fume of this corrupt Labour government we had enough of, so they must go. Skerrit, pack you bags and that of your failed cabinet and get Out, we have enough. Just Go. get Lost, get Out, Go away, ou have failed us with loose and nonsense talk. We need to know more of our funds re the Bin Bool and the Fertilizer Bobol. Skerrit Go, Corrupt Labour Go. You failed us.

      You see it is the same thing you all said about Roosevelt, how he was handsome, how he has dimples. As a result you all went out and voted for him.

       His phenotype (his handsomeness, his face ) has not helped Dominica, all he brought to the country is poverty and backwardness.

      Rather than concentrating on this mans face, take a look at his personal accomplishment, academically.

      This is someone who might be able to help move the country forward; the fact he left a government job to engage in private business proves to me he is industrial conscientious, and such are the people one should consider voting for!

      I would much preform to chance it with him in any party than Roosevelt Skerrit who goes out and buys honorary degree which are useless.

      Dominica is the only place on the planet I here there is a double doctor, with two honorary degrees huh!

      Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

      Not only that he is a double doctor, de man is a Knight too eh!

        Francisco, Both you and i will not vote in the Dominica’s next general election. These are not good reasons by you for not voting for Roosevelt. These statements are just strengthening the Labour supporters who maybe thinking, (if Roosevelt is not qualified to lead Dominica academically) ,when they know very well that his is a university graduate, you a putting the UWP’s leader academic qualifications to question by the Laborites. Stay away from these not wise statements. None productive.

        Well BEB are you suggesting that I am so perfect, that I am not entitled to error like everyone else?

         Most of the time when I write comments, I do not read back, or edit my comments, so when I error, I only discover the mistakes when I read my comments as they are posted!

         Remember I am just a simple man, not a superman policeman like you who chased two half dead culprits, and captured them when they went out of breath nuh!

        “I hear” they out ran you and felt sorry for you and gave up eh!

        Lenpro, can you tell me from which university Roosevelt Skerrit graduated?

        If you can I hope it is not the one we check to to find out and was told they do not have any records of a graduating student named Roosevelt Skerrit. 

        I do not want to get into it, been there done that too many times.

        Nevertheless, be informed that when you saw Roosevelt in Dominica throwing a graduating black gown and cap, without the tassel in the sky, let it be known that can be bought at a swap meet, or costume shop, or on a street corner in America.

        The fact is that man might graduate Punjab University in India, and Duquesne, I don’t know; however, we know he bought two useless bits of paper; honorary degrees because he want people to call him doctor.

        Guy don’t be fooled Roosevelt does not have a degree from any university except his bought honorary degrees.

    Or is this an attempt to get payed off with jumbee money not to run.

    DNO could you please follow up with this young man on whether he will be going up for elections with a party or as an independent. Might as well since allu post up his picture and half his life history.

        seems you didn’t read it either!

        the author of this article is unnamed, and they even said “Even though I have not spoken to Clement myself about his intentions.”

        If is some high science they trying on people, you have to ask if is some jumbee money he wants. Assuming that PM would attempt to handsomely payoff any seemingly strong competitors, they are putting this out there to sow some seeds hoping for a fast harvest. Neither UWP or DFP has done this with any of their candidates, so why put this out there like that.

        Not everyone here is some little woman getting wet on looks. From his jobs and board positions, its obvious he has some connections with the DLP. I would not say its not on merit, but lets not be naive in that Dominica is a pull-string country and if you not red your better off dead.

        This definitely is not a Skerrit. The UWP is a very disciplined Political Party and anyone who becomes part of it ill be mature, disciplined and do well for the people of Dominica.. that is the objective, that is the focus. We, the UWP must pull everyone to gather to return some level of decency, professionalism and etiquette to our people and our Dominica.
