DNO POLL RESULT: Who do you think is the better candidate for political leader of United Workers Party?

As delegates of the United Workers Party (UWP) gather at the Goodwill Parish Hall to elect a new political leader, a majority of the participants in a DNO poll, have made known their choice for that position.

Poll participants had to choose between Dr. Thomson Fontaine and Clement Marcellin who have publicly announced their intention to vie for the political leader.

Of the 715 people who participated, 57% (399) voted for Clement Marcellin and 43% (297) voted for Thomson Fontaine.

Please note that this is not a scientific poll and is not intended to predict the result of the election for political leadership of the UWP.

Below are the poll results.

    None is the right person. All they do is advertise their teeth with colgate close-up.

    This pole seems to show that the people of the United Workers Party wanted Clement Marcellin, as their Party Leader; while the delegates chose Thompson Fontaine.

    This seem to show that the people and their Party are not united; what a chaos!

      The poll shows that labourites want to tell UWP who to elect as Political Leader of the UWP. Meanwhile the Labour Party has not had a delegates conference since 2013.

    Everybody know,including people who voted Fontaine,that the first opportunity he get he will leave Dominica in search of a job.Fontaine vying for leadership is just a show put on by UWP.

    I don’t know much about Clement except I know he is an opposition senator. But if the Uwp have a problem with young ppl entering politics then I should question how could he be voted as party leader.
    However, Fountaine is a complete no no, this man doesn’t have any good reputation and the party will be bedeviled by even more chastizing than before. Can this party attract credible people at all. I guess not and I care not.

    As for me I voted for Thompson because he is the most qualified person at this time. But after listening to Brian I have decided to withdraw my support for UWP completely because Mr James and Hon Linton should not allow Brian to wage that war on the party on their behalf and they said nothing let alone to condemn it. Dr Fontaine should just withdraw his candidacy and leave those people party for them.
