UPDATE: Jennifer Wallace Lafond out; Charles Savarin next in line

 Charles Savarin is the next government's nominee for president
Charles Savarin is the next government’s nominee for president

Dominica News Online has been reliably informed that Jennifer Wallace Lafond is no longer a nominee for President of Dominica.

DNO was further informed by reliable sources that Charles Savarin is next in line to be nominated for president by the government.

According to the sources, Savarin resigned from his job as minister of national security on Wednesday in order to pave the way for his nomination.

There is no word yet as to who will replace him as minister.

Concerning Lafond, the sources said she possesses a US passport and this may contravene 32 1 A of  the Constitution which states “a person shall not be qualified to be elect or appointed as representative or senator if he is by virtue of his own act under acknowledgement of allegiance or adherence to a foreign power of state.”

It is also said that she is suffering from ill health.

Lafond was nominated by the government after speaker of the house, Alix Boyd-Knights, withdrew her nomination citing safety concerns.

Neither, labor, nor, freedom, nor any party at all, for love of country should accept this choice as President of our Dominica. Please represent us and nominate somebody credible.

    To all of u who on here that feel froggy jump Charlo not Alix Boyd,the main part of office u all should be worried about is the pm post u all not crying but the president u all have up.Yeh it was bad for Charlo to say what he had said but on the other hand u can tell how he felt about his country cause when he saw a man calling on EU to not send funds that would help your fellow country man,its so sad uwp and their followers will bring this island to its knees what i dont get when Edison put his own president in back then why was there not all this hoopla i hope one day we will be our bothers keeper and not be so hatefull.

    I just cannot believe that the only person in Dominica that the Prime minister can think to nominate as President, a serving minister resigning form government to be President, this is political biasness and favouritism.

    I support the government in the development of this country but this is a very poor choice for the state highest office.

    This is a man that call for the boycott of a Dominican which employs Dominican. How could a minister of government made such a statement. The Pm should asked his to resign. ONLY IN DOMINICA THESE RUBBISH HAPPENS. IMAGINE A TOP WORLD POLITICIAN SAID TO HIS HOW CAN A SERVING MINISTER SAY SUCH AND WAS NOT SACKED.

    PM re think as this will not go down to well with alot of your party supporters and Dominican as a whole.

    It is quite conspicuous that UWP supporters have taken over DNO as always whenever there is such an article and it pertains to the government. It is as if you are paid for being critics.
    How many of you, if nominated would qualify for the position of President and would be worthy of being elected Prime Minister?
    Do you qualify for anything? What exactly do you qualify for? What is your qualification?
    Based on your usual comments which are not inspiring and which no one can learn anything from, I know you qualify for Masters of Critics.
    I am even going further to nominate you for a PhD in Critics.
    Your comments are an ill-wind that blows nobody any good. They do not enhance Dominica. They do not unite Dominica. They do not make Dominica a peaceful place and a safe one for that matter. Yet, you are on DNO calling the PM all sorts of names. You are the ones who deserved to be called those derogatory names that you qualify for. You have depicted it in your comments. It disgusts good and caring Dominicans.
    What is more, you are showing yourselves to be, that it appears Dominica has more unloving and unkind people who knock everyone and everything good. Your eyes and mind do not see the good but always evil.
    You are also projecting to the entire world the type of people who exist in Dominica. Are all of you not Christians? Yet you do not practice love to everyone with no exception. Go and learn the meaning of love and practice it.
    Thank God there are some nice people in Dominica who do not stoop as low as you to consistently criticize. They know the difference between good people and bad ones which you do not know.
    Learn also the meaning of elevate. Elevate your country and everyone else in it. I have previously stated, be Christian-like in also your words/comments.
    God is watching you from above and taking notes for your judgment, a mini one while you are alive. Then the greater one when you die. You will also pay for your idle and unkind words which you spew on DNO at those in authority. You better care.

      If you carefully analyze this, you will realise that there are several likes, sometimes in the 90’s, yet very few comments, so it is foolish to say that the Opposition supporters make stupid comments. Most of us just tick. We are not paid, as a matter of fact, I hardly read DNO, but when I do, I express my likes and dislikes, only to find that I support the majority view. So it is puerile to suggest that people are paid to make comments on this forum. If the readers are random Dominicans and most of them support the Opposition, then it is a trend and not a plan! Wake up!

    The only reason I can think off is that Lennox Linton who doesn’t have a degree can possibly become Prime Minister so why not let Charles saverin who does not a degree become president.

    I am calling for a massive demonstration on the grounds that this man Charles Saverin is a selfish dude and is known for making reckless statements – like calling for the boycott of Breezee Mart. What a total disrespect and insensitivity to Dominicans just when Breezee Mart is closing down and laying off people. One could argue on the account of 18-3 that Charles Saverin’s call for the Boycotting of Breezee Mart has resulted in the collapse of the Breezee Mart supermarket.

      I couldn’t agree more. In my humble opinion Roosevelt Skerrit has no allegiance to the DLP and I will further say that this administration has no interest in winning the next general election. A government has never been so undecided, reckless or irresponsible. You mean Charles Savarin who has been properly disposed of when it comes to the runnings of politics in this country will be thrust upon a people who has discarded him at every opportunity through the ballot. This is a travesty and this government has single handedly brought the office of president to disrepute creating a presidential nominee crisis in this country.I dare say that there are many more surprises to come for there are more interesting days ahead.

Mrs. Lafond should have removed herself from contending, knowing that she has dual citizenship. Has integrity has taken a vacation in Dominica? It is all very embarrassing and shameful!

    • September 26, 2013

      Well I guess the PM is trying to prove that he is indeed above the constitution. I am more than disappointed in Mr. Williams. I expected better of him given his level of knowledge of our constitution. He has been and could have still been a good president if he had insisted on becoming president, even if is temporarily, in the correct manner.

    This is an abomination. Charles Saverin has been one of the most polarizing figure in our history. Can Charles Savarin unite people. Let us all be honest with ourselves.
    Charles Saverin has sat with the Labor Party as a surrendering any bit of dignity a man can have. True Laborites are playing kumaya with Charles Saverin as a matter of convenience.
    Charles Saverin is on record calling Portsmouth people ” BLACK CARIBS” – the most disrespectful and racist comment. At the time of the comments he was saying that the Kalinago people are stupid and that Portsmouth people are the Black Version of stupidity. A comment I will never forget.

    After Hurricane David Charles Saverin was in charge of resource distribution and I will never forget when a regiment from Portsmouth came up to Roseau via the Geest Tug Boat and the ” Lighters and Charles saverin insisted that we the people of Portsmouth should not get ration – Young people if you think I lie ask the older folks around Portsmouth. Ian Douglas through his dad may be able to attest to that. Need I say that Charles Saverin Roots were still alive in Portsmouth when he did that.
    This is a character who showed total disregard for a nation by handing down a 47 day strike and crippled the economy of Dominica.

    I will not touch on integrity issues and I will let the momentum reveal the Charles Saverin who is wearing this fake smile and a Red shirt.

    After my hard work of rebuilding the Labor Party with Mike , Rosie and Pierro – difficult moment sleeping on the hard ground all over the country, running out of gas and now it is very disturbing to look at a band of hijackers playing Laborites. What a travesty.

    Regardless to the qualifications of a President, man or woman, if the person cannot unite the people of Dominica, we have a serious problem. After all what Savarin has said about the UWP, Mr. Edison James and more recently Mr. Lennox Linton, if a Dominican believes that Linton as Prime Minister and Savarin as President can work together for the betterment of Dominica, it is easier to see Alix becoming a nun.

      Are you cursed? Satan loves you. :twisted: You mentioned the Lord’s name in vain? Are you aware that it is a grievous/mortal sin to mention his name in vain as you did in such a manner?

      It is the II – Second Commandment of God.

      Commands: reverence in speaking about God and holy things, the keeping of oaths and vows.

      Forbids: blasphemy, the irreverent use of God’s name, speaking disrespectfully of holy things, false oaths, and the breaking of vows.

      Pray to God for forgiveness. Hopefully you have a humble and contrite heart. Only then will you be forgiven.

    Sounds like another very familiar bed time rhyme like: Jack and Jill went up a hill to fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down and broke his crown and Jill come tumbling after…
    It seems like everything Skerrit and his DLP team plan is tumbling one after the other.

    Mr. Williams for president – though unconstitutionally elected is now out of favor with those that elected him.

    Ms. ABK nominated by Skerrit and the DLP- That tumbled down.

    Ms. Jennifer Wallace Lafond was then nominated instead of ABK – That too came tumbling down

    Mr. Kurt De Freitas was nominated by Skerrit and the DLP team for DPP and again it came tumbling down. All these happened in less than one month.

    But Dominicans think of this: If everything the man gets involved in is tumbling down do we have to wait until Dominica goes tumbling down with him to listen to the voice of nature? I don’t even want to talk about the Liat story and his $8 million dollar investment that also came tumbling down.

DPP discarded or withdrawn mark you there is a difference between the word he hdraw and he has been withdrawn in other words he has been discarded 0h and hear the AG is because of mischeivous bloggs ; then Minister Austrie this morning on Matt – Dr. Thomas found him wanting and he says Fontaine is mischeivous etc – I am now wondering whether this is a mischeivous government seeing, sayin and doing mischeivous things hence the reason that they now beginning to see that everything happening around them are now mischeivous

    SunDominica.com is reporting that Charles Savarin is Skerrit’s choice for President. Isn’t that moving from Alix’s frying pan into the fire. Many Dominicans who listen to the animal show have been hearing the barrage of mapuis that is being pelted at the opposition, in particular Mr. Lennox Linton by Charlo. Tell me, how is their going to be unity between the UWP and President Charlo. Skerrit found difficulties with the appointments of Babs Dyer and Dave Bruney because of their political affiliations, therefore, how will he explain the nomination of Charlo. The people of Dominica must vehemently appose the nomination of Charlo.

    This Skerrit administration is tremendously incompetent. They are making fun of the constitution hoping we will give in. My people continue the fight, they will soon be gone! I addition can you believe the supporters are even worse. This woman knew she had a US passport, so why accept the nomination? I suppose she was hoping that they would find some way to allow her to become president. Why these supporters are so corrupt like their leaders is so disgusting. She should be the first person as a former PS to say no PM I would be happy to serve but I am not qualified. I hope we really find someone who has backbone and not one that would just say yes to the PM.

We pull down all negative influence, Principalities, evil forces and demolish this in this land never to take root. We destroy the roots of strife, war, confusion in the land and we replace by the Peace of the Lord which surpasses all understanding. We set Papa Dom free and all the others who are bounded by the Evil forces and we say to them be at peace in Jesus Name. We set all our young people free to serve the one and true God. So all they will do and say will be in conformity with the Lord.

    There seems to be no vetting process by this administration, when it comes to the nomination of an individual to a position supported by the supreme law of the land.

    No wonder “NO law no constitution can stop them from doing what they want.” Question, Is this what the law abiding Dominicans really voted for? My God! Where are the Christians, the educated people who are part and parcel of this land? Why are they silent about this atrocious disregard to our constitution?

    With all the lies, contradictions and propaganda that are disseminated on the radio by the administration’s operatives, don’t they know by now that the truths will always trump the lies?

    Only in our beloved Dominica this can happen. It is high time to vote these people out of office, and get them packing. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

    All those Labour Party supporters who were requesting a CV from Mr. Lennox Linton, Opposition Leader of the UWP, should now ask the Prime Minister for his CV. In my opinion it should read, the appointment of a President, failed. The appointment of a DPP, failed. The appointment of a Magistrate failed. The land transfer deal, failed. The bin boreball scandal, failed. A present Minister in the Labour Party Government once said,” if you are chosen to do a job, you know you cannot do the job, why do you want to keep the job.” I am saying if you are chosen to lead the people of a country for instance Dominica, you know you don’t have the necessary skills, credibility, ability of a leader, why don’t you allow people like Mr. Lennox Linton, Mr. Claudius Sanford or Mr. Thompson Fontaine to lead the country.

      Doc Love wait for Election. This is what will give those you propose the mandate. In the meantime and between time, PM Roosevelt Skerrit has been given the mandate. LL, CS or even TF have to wait for their day if they will have one.

      Stop being angry every day about one person. Relax and chill… Accept who is there until election time come. Be happy as you seem to be missing this whilst you hate on. Haterz (those carrying hatred) only hurt themselves avec gros ceour. This is also not good for health reasons.

      I glad for you. Change the law? If they so like Dominica the choice will be easy and nothing is wrong with the constitution. They have to pledge allegiance to their adopted homelands to be citizens and we must allow them to run a mock in Dominica? You can’t be right in your head! That lady is well respected and an excellent choice but she should know that this would blow up in her face. The choice is clear Dominica or America, she withdrew he US citizenship is more important. There are many Dominicans who have distinguished themselves and can be president.

    It would be wise for the government and the interested parties to dot all their “I”s and cross all their “T”s before accepting the nomination, or even going public on offers of holding positions such as the presidency. It’s a simple case of due deligence. While many may see this as a UWP vs Labour situation, the truth is the CONSTITUTION was written to prevent these kinds of embarassment and chaos. What is wrong with simply following the rule of law and not jumping the gun? It saddens me even more that Dominicans in the USA in particular who know for a fact before you eyeball and American they’re flashing Constitutional clauses to defend their positions, yet these are the very people who propogate nonesense in Dominica. Maybe CIVICS should be taught in secondary schools as a manadatory course. Too many people are unfamiliar with the Constitution and the laws that guide social order on the island. Ministers of government mumbling the national pledge in 2013, it’s embarassing. We have people calling the airwaves on all sides beating their chests like fattened geese on issues way beyond their comprehension, and those who know better allow them to wallow in ignorance because it suits their political agenda.

    We can do better Dominican! Our National anthem calls us to come forward as sons and daughters, but it also requires of us to be ready to do the right, to be firm and to be fair. How can this be achieved when we’re coming in with muddy feet, cloudy eyes and smokescreen illusions? Civil society is governed by the rule of law, not by the man who holds the heaviest artillery! then we bash the youth….

      We have respect for every other Constitution except ours,ask many of us about it we know absolutely nothing but I have seen my fellow Dominicans with a copy of the USA Constitution practically attached to their person when I reveal to them I possess a Dominican copy, they act flabbergasted.
      Giving credit where it is due,when the U.W.P was in office they asked that folks picked up a copy of Dominica’s constitution.That’s when I personally start studying this document. Many people believes D/cans are dunces ,but this document although hurriedly crafted together covers EVERY aspect of what we are dealing with now.So when I hear other people quote sections of their Constitution I look for it in DA’s own and surely there it is.Get a copy of T and T document and you’ll see similarities, Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar nominated former Judge Anthony Carmona as President did you hear or see any comess as what is happening here?The man is about Trinidad and Tobago ,nobody had a problem with him because of his impartiality. Can that be said here? We need to put away the rum and get some more decor.God bless Dominica and those that truly love and stand up for her.
