Report says 2014 General Election ‘not necessarily fair;’ justifies call for reform Linton says

A Commonwealth Observer Mission to Dominica has concluded that the 2014 General Election was not necessarily fair and Opposition Leader Lennox Linton has said that it justifies the call for electoral reform on the island.

Speaking on Q95’s ‘The Hot Seat’ on Monday, June 19th, 2017, Linton said the report has pointed to the inconsistencies of elections in Dominica saying that the report is “an encapsulation…of things that need to be done.”

“We have, effectively, an encapsulation of the elements of electoral reform. The things that need to be done, the things that need to be changed, the things that need to be improved in the context of electoral reform,” he said.

The report was published in 2015, buried among other reports on the Commonwealth’s website and it appears that very few people were aware it. DNO understands that it was brought to the attention of the opposition within the past few weeks. At this point, it is unknown whether the government, who invited the mission to Dominica to observe the election, knows about it.

In the report, the Commonwealth Mission concluded that while the 2014 General Election, which swept the Dominica Labour Party to power, was free, it was not necessarily fair due to “the lack of balance, and in some cases lack of professionalism of the media; the absence of campaign finance regulations and the resultant lack of transparency on financing, coupled with the exponentially increased expense associated with campaigning; multiple instances of treating and bribery, including the transportation of electors to the island to vote; and the apparent abuses of incumbency, including a lack of impartiality in the provision of public services.”

The 40-page report stated that The Mission heard numerous complaints regarding media coverage and partisanship, “and we believe this will continue to feature in future elections unless addressed.”

It also said the voters’ list “did not materially affect the credibility and transparency of the election process and of the results. The list is however widely and publicly discredited and despite, in the Mission’s view, being accurate and appropriate in the eyes of existing legislation, the Mission does not believe it necessarily reflects the reality or the wishes of Dominican society.” (See the full report below).

During his interview on Q95, Linton stated that the issues that were pointed out in the report have been discussed by the opposition for a long time.

“It (the report) speaks of a lack of balance and the lack of professionalism of the media. That affects the media access matter, we have been addressing that. It speaks to the absence of campaign finance regulation; we have been talking about that as part of the electoral reform. It speaks to the increased expenses associated with campaigning, it speaks to the election offenses of bribery and treating and concludes that there were multiple instances of these offenses including the transportation of electors to the island to vote; we’ve been talking about that,” Linton stated.

He proposed a “strict enforcement of the provisions of the law” to combat the issues of bribery and treating and dispel the attempts to create “legal facilitations” for it.

“We’ve been saying it is illegal, we’ve been saying it is criminal and it must not be part of our election process,” he said in reference to treating and bribery. “Therefore there needs to be strict enforcement of the provisions of law to prevent bribery and to prevent treating, not to create new legal facilitation, for bribery and treating, as practiced by the Labor Party, to win elections to continue. That is not what we want.”

He was referring to amendments to the electoral laws of Dominica proposed by the government which said that “transportation of electors or the facilitation of the transportation of electors to or within Dominica for the purpose of an election does not constitute an offence unless the transportation is provided or facilitated with the intention to corruptly induce an elector to vote for a particular candidate …”

The opposition staunchly disapproves of the amendments and debate on them was suspended following protest action outside parliament.

Linton added that the Dominica Labor Party must conform to the law of the land and not have it the other way around. Only then, according to Linton, can there be free and fair elections in the Dominica.

The Opposition Leader claims that he does not understand why it is that this report is only surfacing now, however, he has said that considering it was the Prime Minister who requested the presence of the observers, he is not surprised at the idea that the report might have been sent to the government and other bodies.

“From my point of view, all I know is that this is a report that, normally, would go to the government because it was the Prime Minister who asked the Commonwealth to send a commission observer in…I don’t know why we have not had this available to us before now, or why is it that the commissioner, as a body, has not spoken about it or why is it that the government that requested the observer assignment has not spoken about it,” Linton said.

He remarked that he had heard nothing spoken publicly about the report, and described the case as a “question that should be put to the commissioner.”

    Tony Ass-ta-phan speaks on behalf of the PM and by extension the government of Dominica,but since Tony has a residence in the USA he has to have a green card or other form of allegiance to the USA which will then make him illegal to speak on behalf of the Dominican Prime Minister and government.The same way that Skerritt had to denounce his French citizenship and a candidate for President of Dominica had to withdraw because she had a green card from the USA.Tony is in contravention of the laws of Dominica if he has US residency or citizenship because that would debar him from giving his full allegiance to Dominica in speaking for and on behalf of the Dominican government.No wonder he continues to give such reckless and bad advice to Skerritt and lead the country down a bad path.

      The source of information used by the Commonwealth Observer Mission came from Dominica, and it was blue blue blue and lie lie lie. Investigate yourself and you will see the names of the blue agents used by the mission. my take on that was that a DUNCE set of people was used by the mission and they were easily fooled. The report is like a two-edges sword that condemns the mission’s inadequacy to peform well.
      DNO, you can delete this comment of truth as you always do.

    Hence the reason why the corrupt government tried to pass the amendment in the last sitting of Parliament, because they had seen and read the report,but chose not to reveal it’s contents to anyone outside of the cabal because it makes them look bad.Even if the Labour Party operatives feel that they had issues with the report ,there are other parties in Dominica,viz UWP, Freedom and Pappy’s party which could also have issues with the report as well so for the labour party terrorists to hijack the report and seek to hijack the electoral system in the country by seeking to legitimize stealing of the elections and paying for votes is the last straw.Why didn’t they circulate the report to all political parties for their feedback and then report to the Commonwealth observer group the various concerns of interested parties in Dominica.Even if the Labour Party loves the uneducated, change must come just as it did in Antigua when it looked like the Bird family would never lose power there

    Tony will continue to spin his fake news and rubbish that man is one of those destroying our Dominica and there are those he’s reaching who believe him and that’s where we are today . As he and Skerrit said he can speak for the PM of Dominica which is shameful . Tony said the report is in effective to him so who cares no one voted for him he’s not an elected ppl . UWP supporters and concern individuals should ignore commenting on what Tony had to say and focus on the report and the Government instead, because it’s an eye opening report and also a guide for moving Dominica forward.
    I wonder when is Dominicans going to reach a point where they ignore Tony Astaphan for good .

    What we would like to hear now is feedback from Baroness Scotland about the report after two and a half years .

    The truth will prevail.

    Like Hon Lennox Linton uttered, this report was nowhere to be had in the supposed Commonweath Secretariat’s site or associated sites. It seems to have been deliberately hiddened or kept well away from general public consumption. To this end, I’ve written to the Comminwealth Secretariat seeking answers. One of those is proof of disclosure (time, date & to whom) this report was made available to in the Labour Party Camp, including the election commission. I’ve copied in a string of people, including the Baroness and Head of the Commonwealth Secretariat.

    I must get answers… I’m intending to rock the boat, in the quest of getting the truth to educate the D/can public.

    June 20, 2017

    So Dominicans living overseas can send remitences on a monthly basis but they are not allowed to vote. This is very interesting indeed. “Give me your money but don`t tell me how to send it”. I do not support the findings of the report since I believe it does not reflect the true situation in Dominica. These people were on island for about a week. That doesn`t qualify them to make value judgement about our system.

  7. THOU SHALL NOT STEAL Exo.20:15
    June 20, 2017

    Dominica is a Christian nation we say and as such the Bible is our guide. The Bible is against robbery, cheating and stealing as seen in the ten commandments. The Bible and all dictionary I have seen defines stealing, cheating, and robbery the same way i.e, taking something that doesn’t belong to you, without approval of the owner. For example, this week it was reported that someone stole jewelry at the Muslim store. Although the person has not been cought as far as we are concerned, that person is a thief whether cought or not. Why then is a party or group that stole an election according to observers not thieves until convicted? Boy these gangstas are sacwe voleer, because they stole the 2014 election​ and Eph 4:28 tells us that we should not steal! So I call on the evangelist, the Adventist, the Christian Church to tell their savior that stealing is wrong and they must stop it!

    See who the Commissioners spoke to as Media:
    “Media
    • Felix Wilson (University of West Indies Open Campus)
    • Q95 FM
    • Matthias Peltier (Interim President of the Media Workers’ Association)

    No wonder they thought GIS was a radio station and that the media needs training………., Serious blunders were made by the Observers i suspect, no wonder it stayed on the shelf for so long…..

    This is all are do about nothing. It is alleged that the PM facilitated transportation for people to come to Dominica to vote. Now it appears to me that the people voted for the UWP because Joshua Francis overturned a nine hundred vote from Ambrose George and they also went on to win Roseau central and Roseau north by large margins as a result labour lost three seats and the opposition gain three.

    The question must be asked how comes the election was not fair where by the opposition increase their membership by 100%??

    Hey! we live in the last days, and as the Good Book says; “Knowledge shall increase.” The paradox here is this; Yes, we are living the end time (knowledge has increased) but we are still living in “modern times.” So, my point is this, seeing that we are living in both times at once, why can’t we act like it and reform the voting rules to allow people access to cast their ballots using our cell phone from anywhere man is found? It could be so simple and free from Fraudskeritics. :lol: :lol: :lol: I could show you how simple it could be done – This would make me far more richer than Bill Gates. The only obstacle is, I don’t like “Bodyguards” in my two foot. Yes! “two foot.”

    It’s troubling that many Dominicans don’t feel themselves worthy enough to demand better from their Political leaders..in this case the DLP is taking the people for fools, elections in Dominica is a sham, it’s decided based on who can bribe and treat voters best. The process is practically void of integrity.
    I’m not sure that Dominica can be helped or even want help anymore..Many are quite content settling for mediocrity in Government.
    The real SHAME will be in not making the recommended changes..Let’s wait and see..

    This report is rather surprisingly benign. Based on Linton’s continuous rants about electoral fraud I am sure that he was very disappointed in the conclusion of the report. Sadly, he is clutching at straws to eke out any scrap of vindication that he can.

      As simple as that your stupidity and ignorance, your lack of intelligence or education had to surface in that pile of hogwash!

      I know you did not error or made a mistake; you are just a dunce, and rather than you worrying about Lennox Linton who is a genius child, you had better try to get an kindergarten education.

      “Being” implies the quality or state of having existence, or something conceivable as existing, or something that actually exists: conscious existence such as life, the quality that constitute an existing thing, and a person also.

      “Being” in the use of adjective implies “present” used in a phrase such as “for the time being.” I am sure Lennox knows that; what about you?

      What is that: “benign” what does that represent, what does it mean?

      I will tell you whereas you believe you were humiliating Lennox you were promoting him “benign” implies one who is gentle, one of a gentle disposition, a gracious teacher showing kindness,…

    • Conclusion:

      What is that: “benign” what does that represent, what does it mean?

      I will tell you whereas you believe you were humiliating Lennox you were promoting him “benign” implies one who is gentle, one of a gentle disposition, a gracious teacher showing kindness, and gentleness, it means he is one who posses a mild type of character, that does not threaten anyone. You see what happens when we are dumb, and uneducated.

      Shut up you fool? The ditch we dig for others we always fall into it especially when we are dumb, and uneducated!

      Free and fair elections are the underpinnings of any true democracy. How can one consider Dominica to be a genuine working democracy when its general elections are fraught with bribery, illegalities, skullduggery, shenanigans and other vices. Yet there are supposedly intelligent people who would stoutly defend the status quo. When fair-minded people rightfully shed light on these abuses and excesses, they are vilified. It is little wonder that the performance of the government is so abysmal because these people cheated and bribed their way into government. Their main concern is not about helping the poor masses but to engage in financial aggrandizement. Look at the IMF last report about the economies of the ECCU. The Dominican economy lags at the bottom in most if not all important performance categories.

    Here we go. A report which has been posted on line for years on a legitimate website had been hidden away. What a joke. Politicians continue to take us all for fools here in Dominica. This tell me that the opposition is all talk, blowing hot hair without facts all the time. There are two things that we must understand here. The Opposition is bankrupt of ideas and to lazy to do its own research on what it wants to think about. Secondly, the media has again showed how lazy and unprofessional it journalist are for not following up on such a story and finding such a report that was available to all for years.

    There is no doubt that some form of electoral reform is needed. Election financing is there for the discus. what about election financing are we interested in? Do we want tax payers to finance the lazy politicians campaign? Do we want to know where the politicians get their financing from? I believe that political parties should raise their own finance for their campaign.

    If anything the report exposes DNO and the media joker’s on island, that continue to keep the nation in utter darkness. It reveals that we have a very week media that will only do what it takes to keep Skerrit in power. Elections took place in December 2014, and 2 years later DNO putting out the report? Dominica is in a very sad state of affairs and I personally believe we are too late to save the country. We in a very serious comma that we just cannot recover from, as every institution is already poisoned, if not totally destroyed.

  16. June 20, 2017

    After reading this report, I must say it was enlightening. What this report clearly revealed is that non of the political parties are interested in campaign finance legislation. I believe that campaign finance laws are central to the whole issue of electoral reform, the fact that non of the two major parties are willing look at campaign financing is troubling. On the issue of treating both parties stated that if you are entertaining your supporters it is not treating, same was said of providing transportation for your supporters. I believe that this report stumbled on the part the media played, it is a free Press and it is free to endorse and support any party or candidate. Of the major news net works in the US only fox news stands out in support of a Republican agenda and it is simply referred to as media bias. We cannot start to legislate what the media should or should not do that would be going down a very slippery slope.

      Did you really read the report and are you aware of the points raised by the opposition re electoral reform?

      • June 20, 2017

        I am referring to what is contained in the report. The report indicated that both government and opposition showed little interest in campaign finance reform, go read the report. I am not interested in what government or opposition says outside of the report. The observer mission conducted interviews with both government and opposition and came up with their findings. When parties don’t want the source of their campaign funding to be made public and yet use all kinds of fancy dialogue calling for electoral reform we truly do have a problem. Campaign finance legislation is key to any form of electoral reform.

Lennox don’t have and is in no position to influence The Commonwealth Secretariat Office to write such a report it’s so ridiculous . Dominica is in a mess and it’s up to all of us to make it better and we cannot leave it up to the leaders of the parties to do it.

        You are certainly the biggest idiot on this site. Are you saying the Commonwealth Secretariat doctored the report to suit Linton? So the Commonwealth Secretariat is in bed with Linton now? Woman, the cold in Canada is freezing your brain.

        You are not really contributing to the credibility of the leader of the party you so blindly support. The Commonwealth Secretariat is headed by someone, who owes allegiance to Roosevelt Skerrit, who championed her cause to become its Secretary General against all odds. If anyone is in cahoots with any political leader in the Caribbean it would have to be our own Baroness Scotland with Roosevelt Skerrit.

      idiot linton said he got it two weeks ago, and some on the electorial commission never even knew it existed. the question you should ask is where and why was it hidden from the public…. allu dominicans just to tebeah for allu own self…. SORT

      Frankie, Linton is losing momentum. He’s becoming more irrelevant by the day. He had been quiet for the last few weeks, so he came up with the ‘best thing’ (in his opinion) that could send some people in his direction. Anything for spotlight for this man.

        He was then considering how he would pay Pinard the rest of the money he owes him. I wonder, did he pay it in full which is why he is now speaking?

      It is apparent that you have sold your integrity for the colour red and the ability to get a few dollars when you get to see Skerrit … I just cannot believe that Dominicans have become so blinded to what is WRONG and what is RIGHT….

      HAVE YOU LOST YOUR CONSCIENCE?
      HAVE YOU LOST YOUR CONNECTION TO GOD?

      WHAT IS GOING ON WITH DOMINICANS?
      WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO OUR ETHICAL REASONING?

      Honourable Linton has a lot to do in educating you,because its not easy to enter a head of stone…You thought that the report would stay hidden for ever?

    Perception perception. When you digging for dirt you end up with old reports that were there all the time that you couldn’t see cuz your head is so filled with dirt :mrgreen:

      So if the report has been there 2 years and maybe it was, then you will agree that once again skerritt has lied to the population when he said that none of the missions had anything negative to say about the 2014 elections. You will also agree that he lied when he said that reginal and international organisation agree with his proposed amendments to the electoral laws.
