PM Skerrit promises 21 constituency administrators if re-elected

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has revealed that in the new term of the Dominica Labour Party (DLP), twenty-one constituency administrators will be appointed.

He made that statement while addressing a DLP meeting held in the Colihaut constituency on Thursday night.

Skerrit said it’s the ruling labour party that’s responsible for creating the ministry of constituency empowerment and it also allowed parliamentarians to have constituency offices.

“In the new term we will be appointing what is called a constituency administrator in every constituency and that constituency administrator will help the Parl Rep [Parliamentary Representative] in the administrative management of the constituencies,” he said. “When the Parl Rep says she is going to do this, that person will follow-up and ensure that it gets done and it gets done in a timely fashion.”

According to him there is also a housing day when the administrator will go to every home and ensure that the contractors are doing their work, then report to their Parl Rep.

In addition to this the Prime Minister said his government will be creating constituency boards where persons can serve as advisors to the Parl Reps who can discuss the programmes, challenges in the constituency and come up with plans and programmes to be implemented in the constituency.

Furthermore, Skerrit said a constituency budget of $400,000 will also be made available to help the Parliamentary Representatives to deal with emergencies.

“If we have a sewing programme in a constituency to teach people to sew or a cake making programme the Parl Rep can use those funds to train the people in the constituency and have some programmes going on,” he stated.

Skerrit believes that these things will help enhance the abilities of Parl Reps to better represent the interest and the concerns of constituents.

    “That way we would have the “Government” to the “Parliament representative” and “he or she” to the “Village council”, for the development of the Village/Villages. If not Village, then the community, whatever it is. Should that not be the way it will work? “( Elizabeth Xavier).
    Elizabeth, all of your simplicity pops out of your comments above!
    You simply talk: to hear yourself, but remember if a person is shallow, because they can read and write does not mean completely literacy, or semi-illiterate!

    If Roosevelt create what he call a job for administrators in the twenty-one constituencies, what purpose will the elected representatives in government serve, what is their purpose?
    Poor you; Roosevelt have you like a fool, the Village council  are supposed to work closely with the government, through the elected minister of government who is  actually an administrator of that constituency!
    Be quiet, you appear confounded each time you attempt to defend Roosevelt rubbish talk!

    I support the DLP and Prime Minister Skerritt, however I do not agree with all his policies 100% of the times. This is one that I don’t think is worth implementing. If local councils are not working, then think of how to strengthen and empower them. Also, will there be an accountability system for all funds distributed by the administrators? Will there be one in ALL 21 constituencies? Between effective parl rep and village councils, we should be able to get these done.

    This man has stripped the councils and local government of their authority, placed it under his wing, in a bid to micro manage the country hence totalitarian state. Now he’s circumventing the democratic process and installing his very own constituency offices, which by the way is just a reinforcement of this caretaker system, which is illegal! These local lawyers are just crap, they stood by and allowed this to transpire.

      I am not good at maths but I was told to get 1 billion you have to multiply one million by one million. So 3,961 by 50,000 is not it. Unless you are playing a game in fifth grade.

    So what exactly is wrong with Parl Rep administrators that so many are againts?
    1) Most village councils are powerless and insolvent financially. So what can they actually do?
    2) It is not logical or practical that a Parl Rep can administer all the day to day that needs to be done.
    3) that funds will be available for local training and schemes is a good idea (and yes, this will need stringent accountability)
    4) Look outwards, this is almost normal in most advance democracies. Stop shutting everything down before it starts and still Complain that DA is backwards.
    5) Parl Reps looks over greater areas than just a single village council.
    6) Suggest where the idea can be better improved upon rather than tearing it down simply because its skerrit or labour. Also state clearly where you see flaws, not just badmouth it for no reason.
    7) Stop being scared of change.

      In response to your list below
      1 Councils are only powerless because resources which should be going to them are not forthcoming.. now that they have been found, they should go to the councils so that powerlessness can be addressed
      2. this is precisely why councils should be empowered to do exactly what these constituency empowerment offices were set up to do
      3. no one disputes that… let the councils handle the funds. That is their job
      4. that statement is not true. … exactly the opposite.
      5. That is why village, town and city councils make much more sense than a constituency empowerment office.
      6. One should not try to improve bad ideas. rather leave them to the process of natural selection… that bad ones die out.. the good ones stay… and the better idea is already in place.
      7. No one is scared of change … just remember .. angels walk in where angels fear to tread..

    When Mr. Corruption loses the next election he is going to exhume all the bodies of loot he has buried in escrow accounts all over the world. No suitcase, no matter its gigantic size, will be large enough to accommodate the billions of dollars. Dominicans are anxiously waiting to recoup their passport money.

    Currently in D/ca on vacation and local life, wellness and the whole political scene is unbearable… it stinks. Things just seems to be chaotic with very little evidence of operating system structures in motion. It’s a bit of the BLIND leading the BLIND – uninformed and incompetent people in government and the private sector leading others who are similarly incapable.

    October 13, 2019

    There is absolutely no need for village and urban councils once this goes in place. why administrators to assist the parl rep when you have village council? Is this a decentralization of the red clinic to avoid the overcrowding in town. Is this a step closer to democratic socialism?

    This, IMHO, is a mistake. The tried and tested, but not very well executed path to community development is through a well run and well organised local authority. Sustainable local development is achieved through close contact and accountability to the community through local councillors. Most parl reps are ministers with national responsibilities. A better move would be to mandate parl reps to sit on local councils as co or deputy leaders of the Council. They would then have to help implement locally derived community development plans with the community buy-in fuelled by central government funding.

    The proposals of the PM are totally unnecessary. Dominica is a tiny island. It has village councils and village improvement committees. Why not work with them? There are village councils that hardly anything to do. Give them work to do. Channel the projects through them. The PM’s proposals would undermine these existing bodies and mean additional costs that are unnecessary.

    Skerrit is NOT the Prime Minister Of Dominica, he is the Prime Minister of his party supporters. The reason I say this is quite obvious. Only his party supporters are entitled to government employment and resources. A proper government should govern for everybody regardless of age, gender, religion or political affiliation. In Dominica, victimization, discrimination, political division and tribalism abounds. Dominica is more blessed than all its neighboring counterparts with fertile soil; an abundance of fresh water; green lush vegetation; rare species of flora and fauna; uncommon natural physical features; energetic and gifted human resources and the list goes on. How is it possible that Dominica lags light years behind her OECS partners? One word, CORRUPTION. There are no international airport, no modern athletic stadium, no modern cruise ship berthing facility, etc. Despite the widespread poverty, the leader, his wife and close associates live in exquisite luxury. Can’t be right.

Another avenue to filter from Dominica’s resources to selected individuals . what qualifications will be required for the selection of those administrators ? A card blanche for open bribery and favours for rewards . how can we let one man , and one man only , take the whole country down in the drain . How can one man have the people of a whole nation on their
    knees , and no one is prepared to ”grab the bull by its horns” and take him down . Are we all going to just flee in desperation and allow the chinee dem to take over our beloved country ?

    You had 15 years running this country, which is long term, you should have been able to implement every vision which you had during such time but all you concern about is your own direct interest. Anything which is for the citizenry is incomplete. 20 years of labor party rule and our Dominica is under foreign control plus she has been reduced to poverty from the education system, health system, social services etc. our built environment is riddled with derelict buildings. So many young people can’t read or write yet they’re at high school, health centers closed down all over the island; unemployment escalating with “cool out” as the solution. People really need to take a look at what has become of our country! Not to forget the augmentation in crime, so many things gone wrong and more still going wrong. We suffering from mas migration, every year the vast majority of students flees the country. So many ills with no solutions after 20 years. Skerrit should just resign!

    That brings to an end Village Councils and the local Government system in Dominica.
    The Local Govt System is older than all of us leaving today.
    Started in Vieille Case in the 1930’s and is about to die in Vieille case in 2020 100 years later.
    That is not a good idea Mr Prime minister.
    What is the National Association saying about that, Mr Yoland Jno Julles we need to hear grom you as head of DALCA, we know you are a Skerrit loyalist, are you going to allow Local govt to be killed under your watch?Dominica has one of the best Local Govt. Systems in the Caribbean. Mr. Jno Jules has been involve for almost all his life, Jno Jules heads the Caribbean Association, he is a director on the Commonwealth Board CLGF.
    So we are hoping that you Mr Yoland Jno Jules will stand up in defence of the Local Govt. System in Dominica. We are waiting to hear from you Sir.

    That pathetic delusional confounded Mountain Chicken Carpaud crapo Mentality Sr, Knight doctor Punjab Dusquesne Ali Baba doctor HIFU Roosevelt has neglected his Prozac; hence, he’s on another tangent talking fart about administrator!
    An administrator is a person legally vested with the right of administration of an estate; or one who administers especially business, school, or governmental affairs.
    Whereas Roosevelt is the so called Prime Minister of Dominica, I supposed he should be the  sole administrator in the country!

    Throughout Dominica’s history our nation only had one British Governor; nevertheless, for the hundreds of years we were dominated by the British colonial power; Dominica had an British appointed Administrator, until Statehood was granted followed by our independence!

Skerrit’s behaviour is diametrically opposite to God’s. The man s all abut self. Every single act he performs is meticulously calculated to benefit himself politically and financially.

In any good relationship, whether it be romantic, platonic, social of otherwise, TRUST is the glue that keeps the bond together. This present corrupt regime functions in complete secrecy and darkness. It is neither transparent nor accountable. The government’s business is the people’s business in any true democracy. The government is the servant of the people and not the reverse as you think. Hiding the people’s money in all sorts of escrow accounts all over the globe to obfuscate the precise figures from the citizens is corruption. Gary, your stout defence of this government’s awfully immoral, unethical and unscrupulous practices says volumes about your character. Go back to your dark hole to hibernate.

In his head he thinks he has won all 21 seats. Parl reps are here for creating laws not giving money to people to go to dentist and do thier hair and pay bills. What you need to do is fix the darn economy so people can take care of themselves. Where is the money dor over 8 million a year coming from. This is a stupid plan only geared at using state funds to play politics. Why dont parl reps investgate crime and administer medical care in the clinics while they are at it.

      Those plans are "his" objectives for the future if he goes back to serve another term; why would he implement them now to leave it to another government? It is his plans not that of someone else–who may not even consider the plan.

      I was about to make the same comment about the village councils and the effort to have influence over constituency events; I see we think alike.

    So Skerrit is boldly letting us know that he intends to subvert the will of the people if he is re elected. He wants to control everything by appointing his cronies to these positions so that they will have power over the parliament rep who the people elected. We all know who sits on Skerrit boards. He intends to strengthened the DICTATORSHIP if he get a new term… watch out.

    Is the prime minister saying that village village council’s are not functioning effectively? If so Mr. PM, my question to you is. Whose fault? You are the one responsible for politicing the village council’s and now that the are not functioning as the should you wants to get rid of them. Then again maybe that was your plan all along

    Skerrit has never yet failed to amuse me. Does anybody but his cult-like worshippers believe one word emanating from this man’s mouth? The man’s mouth is a perennial spring of lies. Imagine this, after twenty years in office, Mr. Skerrit has done absolutely nothing transformational to the physical, economic or governing structure of the country. Skerrit runs an octopus-like government. He installs his enablers at the helm of every critically important public institution. They are his tentacles. These people work on behalf of the party and not the country. Prime examples are the Attorney General; the Speaker of Parliament; the Electoral Commissioner; all the Permanent Secretaries; the Chief of Police. A country where corruption is pervasive in government, where there are no consultations, where one man dominates, would always languish in perpetual poverty. Dominicans, open your eyes, they have been closed for far too long.

    Pm, Not if but when :I’m positive yes positive you will be back even better and stronger you are Mr Dominica no one will take that away from you on till we say so labour one love.

    • October 13, 2019

      “You will be back even better and stronger” <<<Man bite dogs, that is a very strong statement that you have made here, more than you will ever know it.

      The opposition doesn't know that God is using them to strengthen to the Will of PM Skerrit, for his continuous work in the future.

      Hurricane Maria did not hit Dominica for no reason at all. It wasn't a good thing for none of us, but God wanted PM Skerrit to be convicted, that He was the "Authority and Power" behind him; PM Skerrit could never have accomplished that kind of revival for Dominica without the "Divine Intervention"

      And PM Skerrit knows that; that is the reason for the Thanksgiving concert of last and this year.

      Yes indeed! PM Skerrit will be back every better and stronger, for that is the Will of God; no man can stop that.

        You guys are right. I have never seen a head of state face so many challenges, man made and natural, and still come up smiling.
        His performance re Maria is outstanding, world famous.
        Which head of state has had his nationals as head of reginal organizations at the same time….CARICOM, British Commonwealth Secretariat, PAHO.
        Which PM his left home and next day was addressing the UN General Assembly or has received two Hon Doctorates ( Dr. Dr. )
        How many PM have been the youngest P M in the whole world.
        Which PM has made his country the first climate resilience in the whole wide world. Wow ! Wow ! Wow ! They cant touch him , cant get close to him.
        Which head of state or head of government has organized thanks giving ceremonies to God.
        The “Skerrit must go” movement has no achievement at all and are just suffering from envy and jarlousy. They only have competence in Lying, talking and making trouble.
        But what do you expect from uneducated fifth graders.

  49. What de as?
    October 12, 2019

    Let’s see what the as has to say today… So in other words, you will appoint someone to manage the $400,000 you’re going to give to each constituency. All you need is 11 seats to be PM. Who the other 10 parl reps are is not important because you will have a “constituency administrator” of your choosing, deciding who gets help. Got it!

    How is a sewing programme or cake baking programme an emergency? And when parliamentary representatives begin organizing programmes of that nature, what becomes of the village councils and other community groups which already have similar programmes? Why does the Government of Dominica have to be so intimately involved in every single thing? We have enough issues with partisanship as is.

    • October 13, 2019

      @Anon, I don’t understand your statement: “Why does the Government of Dominica have to be so intimately involved in every single thing?”

      So many of you are complaining about the Government (PM Skerrit) not doing anything for Dominicans and Dominica. Now you are saying that they are intimately involved in every single thing; what is you all’s problem?

      What is all the thing about the “village council”? Would they not be the standard “agent” through whom the Parliament representative would do their work for that village? He or she cannot do it alone, can that be?

      That way we would have the “Government” to the “Parliament representative” and “he or she” to the “Village council”, for the development of the Village/Villages. If not Village, then the community, whatever it is. Should that not be the way it will work?

      The man’s ideas are not well thought out. His only objective is to win votes. Listening to him it becomes obvious that Mr. Skerrit is not too bright. No wonder the unelectable Senior Counsel is the de facto leader of the DLP. When 99% of Dominicans rely on handouts and remittances from abroad, the country is doomed. For citizens and residents to attain a decent standard of living they must become SELF-RELIENT.
