DLP, UWP reschedule political events to this Sunday

Supporters of the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) and the United Workers Party (UWP) will gather for events at two different venues this Sunday as the two major political parties in Dominica continue their activities in preparation for the upcoming general election.

Both parties were forced to postpone the events, which were originally planned for last Sunday, July 14, due to a tropical wave which was affecting the island.

The DLP goes to Lindo Park at Goodwill tomorrow for the launch of its candidate for the Roseau North constituency, Joseph Isaac.

According to information released by the party, the guest speakers at that event will be DLP candidates for the Roseau Valley – Dr. Irving McIntyre, the Soufriere constitency – Denise Charles, Roseau Central – Melissa Skerrit, Mahaut constituency – Rayburn Blackmoore, Portsmouth – Ian Douglas and Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit.

The DLP event is carded for 2:00 pm.

Meantime, the UWP Eastern Zone Rally, postponed from last Sunday, July 14, will be held this Sunday from 2:00 pm at Willie’s Junction in La Plaine.

The event, which according to the UWP, will focus on a strategic approach to rural development, will feature, among others, addresses by party leader Lennox Linton and candidates for the Salybia constituency – Dr. Worrel Sanford, the Castle Bruce constituency – Ernie Jno. Finn, Morne Jaune/Rivierre Cyrique constituency – Dr. Pharo Cuffy and the La Plaine constitueny – Francisca Joseph.

The theme for the event is Modernizing Dominica – Strategic Rural Development.

There will be performances by Dominican entertainers at both events.

    Hello and good afternoon my people. Well I don’t reside or vote in my place of birth but who ever you all elect I will respect your choice. I just want the candidates to debate each other and it should be live stream on DNO. DEBATES PLEASE.

    I guess its a about power and money for those uwp money grabbers. That is why they are so desperate, angry and hateful. They are even usuing the threat of shutting down the country if the government cannot find the revenue to pay and meet the demands of the CSA. That is the new blackmail as introduced by Latang and other uwp gang bangers. Its the same approach of the CCM demands.

    Waupaca aJudas Iscariot, another one that assisted Monfared launder millions of dollars, one whose name is involved in the life and burial of Baby Sarah and others too many to mention, with character effect. Never thought I would live to see persons of such bad cartoon characters would be one day in politics. Dominica has really fallen like Babylon fell boy

    DNO can you please tell us what that “COOL OUT” thing is all about? In case you don’t know can you please post my comment before PM speaks today so he could tell us what it’s all about? As a laborite I first heard that phrase at a DLP conversation when the deputy PM Reggie said ‘.All you will get all you COOL OUT too’. But I didn’t take that for nothing until last week when my friend and fellow Poto labor told me he got his COOL OUT and asked me if I got mine. I asked him what is and he told me is a money they giving to stop people from putting out secrets they know about. So he told me to just go on my Facebook page and say post I will talk if I don’t get my COOL OUT and money will come. So he told me how much he got and said when that large amount is finished they just have to threaten to talk and they must give him more until election. DNO I have a hard time believing that how easy it is for some to get state money and that’s why I want the PM to tell…

    Modern Day Judas, Joseph Isaac, should never ever be trusted again. In fact, he should lose his deposit. His traitorous action should be a monumental WARNING to supporters of both UWP and DLP. The man is driven strictly by money, selfishness and greed, not what he can do for the poor and infirm. He has no business acumen nor loyalty to any party. Joseph Isaac singlehandedly ran a once thriving bakery into an everlasting coma. The only thing Mr. Isaac has proven himself to be expertly good at is to wreck a good thing. UWP and DLP supporters should treat him as a leper. Traitor Extraordinaire!

    I am seeing 4 winners and one crook in the pictures!!
    The crook’s political career will be burried after the election .
    Once God gives me life and health, Laplaine for me.
    I am riding on the blue machine/wave, with leader and patriot honourable Lennox Linton! My only concern is whether the venue will be large enough to accommodate 20 000 people.

    What is Skerrit going to tell people of Dominica tomorrow? Is he going to tell us how much money he received for Erika and Maria? Is he going to tell us how he used the monies he received? Is he going to tell us why known drug dealers on the block got so much money since Maria while hardworking people were denied a raise and assistance? No, I am not against drug dealers but it hurts to see how people that are doing nothing except to help destroy Dominica, get so much money while the people that really need help are denied help. …………… It’s the first time I see the nonworking class has more influence than the working class and first time I see the known drug dealers are friends of the government and police than law abiding citizens . I hope PM will address these national ills tomorrow.

    If Skerrit had used the money spent to buy Joseph Isaac , other candidates and the amount spent on the” Cool out” movement, to hell rebuild Dominica after such h a devastating storm nodoubt DA would be on it’s way to recovery. But sadly Skerrit put politics before Country. UWP on the other hand sure lose the momentum they had just before the death of the Grandbay candidate and somehow UWP suspended all their campaign up to today. So the way I see it is the DLP has so much money to dump and they don’t care on what they dump it while the UWP is lacking on strategy

    Traitor JI is like a sheep being lead to the slaughter. A crook is always a crook. I sincerely hope the “Black-once- more guest speaker” will take the opportunity and come clean on the Baby Sarah issue once and for all. The nurses and doctors next door at PMH will be listening intently.

    In addition, I am hopeful that Denise Charles will also come clean and give the people of Goodwill an update on the investigation into who busted the head of one of their sons (Dr.Christian) in her constituency a few months ago.
