“People’s movement” meeting in Kalinago Territory signals possible formation of new political party

There has been talk swirling around Dominica about the formation of a new political party and many questions are being asked about whether this new party is actually being formed, who is behind its alleged formation, and when will it emerge.

Dominica News Online (DNO) can confirm that a group of persons including former Parliamentarians have been meeting to discuss and prepare what is dubbed the “people’s movement”. According to a reliable source, the said group met at the St Cyr Resource Center in the Kalinago Territory on Saturday, January 13, 2024.

Inquiries to ascertain the purpose of the meeting proved futile, except that the source informed that over 60 people consisting of representatives from every constituency were present at the meeting. DNO probed further, but the questions resulted in no additional information being given.

The source informed DNO that this group of people planted a seed, “a seed has been planted in fertile and stable soil and will prosper in the interest of Dominica.”

DNO will continue to follow this unfolding story.

    After all your foolish comments,you agree UWP cannot win an election on there own.You doe even know about politics.Political parties contest election on their own,coalition is formed after election.In the case of DLP and DFP in 2000.No political party or parties combined can get enough seats to defeat DLP.Ask yourself,the PEOPLE voted out Labour in 1980.They voted out Freedom in1995.They KICKED out UWP in 2000(less than 5 years)why are they not voting out Labour?Figure it out.

    Let us take a serious look at APP, TUD and DFP These three political parties can’t even present a top slate of serious candidates to the public.

    The local economy is sluggish at best and comatose at worst. These prospective new hopefuls see politics as the only way out of their economic misery. They have observed Roosevelt made it from church mouse poor to the wealthiest man in the Caribbean. Political success is their ticket to opulence.

    Dominica needs much more social and economic activism and advocacy, not more corrupt politicians. These modern day politicians place personal enrichment before the advancement of the people or the development of the country. Dominica now has the largest number of politicians per capita.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 3 Thumb down 6

      More parties. Party, party, don’t stop the party, if it is the right party, according to the late Swallow, Rupert Polio. Ah love it. Now, I do not know which party to go to in the middle of the night. I think I will go to the one with the most women in their poom poom shorts.

    what is the name of the party. let us just not be serial party formers that go nowhere.

    show some strength and stability – I am throwing my hat in the ring come next elections.
    I am ready and taking steps, educating myself and getting ready.

    I do intend to look out for my constituency people – I have my plan and I am not into any forming party and not contesting I see too much of this. focus people focus.

    I am a contender I will be contesting next elections – when the time comes I will say which constituency I will be going up in.
