ST JOHN’S, Antigua, CMC – The main opposition Antigua Labour Party (ALP) has congratulated Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit on his re-election as head of the government in Dominica.
“Your prudent and skilful management of the fiscal affairs of your country, your record of regional integration, and your determination to lead Dominica successfully through the global financial crisis have, no doubt, contributed to the Dominica Labour Party’s victory at the polls,” ALP and Opposition Leader Lester Bird said in a letter to Skerrit.
He said while the Caribbean faces difficult times reducing the chances of incumbent administrations winning re-election, the Dominica Prime Minister’s “philosophical and practical response to the challenges have endeared you, Sir, to the Dominican people, and caused them to strengthen their faith in your abilities.
“I wish you continued success,” Bird said in his letter.
The DLP won 18 of the 21 seats at stake in the December 18 general election. The other three seats were won by the main opposition United Workers Party (UWP).
