Darroux received a total of 17 votes
Darroux received a total of 17 votes

Casius Darroux will be the next candidate for the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) in the Salybia constituency at the next general election.

The constituency association met on Wednesday evening to select the next candidate,to replace outgoing MP, Ashton Graneau.

Darroux beat his rival, Cozier Frederick, gaining a total of 17 votes.

Frederick received 12 votes.

Darroux will now face the United Workers Party’s Claudius Sanford at the polls.

Darroux studied in China graduating with a Masters Degree in Marketing. He is presently working on his PHD in Human Capital Management.

In an earlier interview with DNO, he said his candidacy will be based on inclusion.

“It’s not a matter of me deciding something and dictating it to the people of what I want,” he said. ““I would have to bring all groups together and tell them ‘OK this is my idea, what else can we add to it?’”

The Salybia Constituency consists of the Kalinago Territory, Atkinson, Antrizle and sections of Concord.

The next general election is constitutionally due in 2015.

        I am a young man who has spent all my life in the reserve . I work hard everyday to make my ends meet . honestly I have not seen the change and development that the DLP is talking about . almost all the young men and women I grew up with are either unemployed or Working for pocket change . others have left the island and they won’t be coming back . I would love it if you guys could make mention of the development that has taken place in the reserve over the last 15 years of the DLP being in office

    Congratulations Casius …but you are not going to win elections,and for all the ppl that have nothing to say, Claudius and cozier are cousins they both want the same for kalinago people ,we all want to vote for someone that will make a change , most ppl say Claudius running for the wrong party,cozier decided to give it a try on the other party but was voted out because half of the ppl that’s on the committee is Casius family . At the end of it Claudius and cozier are cousins blood is thicker than water. And if he choose to campagne for Claudius that’s his choice ..sorry Cassie I will not be voting for you cause I think they will walk over you.

    • *Casius SURE WIN*
      May 6, 2014

      We already knew that Cozier, Claudius and UWP tight, that’s why we choose Casius Darroux who is in the best interest of the DLP. Do not let your vote go to waste, get on the winning train with Casius and the DLP. Claudius may bring change, but Casius will bring THE CHANGE THAT WE NEED.

    Darroux studied in China, graduating with a degree in economics.
    DNO, I know those politicians are very quick to talk about what degree they possess but nothing about bad habits they have. For example, this week we saw the profile of two new candidates the DLP intends to replace former candidates with. However, I wonder if Skerrit thinks people are just after degree and not character.

    • Fire fighter
      May 1, 2014

      Alah DNO! Why did you edit my blogg? I did not see that one under your disclaimer I saw delete but not edit because by editing you are not fully expressing my concerns. I was very careful not to call anybody by name, initial, sex, or constituency. I particularly asked about the character of a person who seeks to represent us in public office, when they had to pay for money they s….? Why should we be not allowed to question the character of those that intend to lead us?

  11. Not Me Alone
    May 1, 2014

    I asked DNO to get both the UWP and the DLP to truthfully tell the nation how much each new candidate, on both sides were paid or offered to contest the next election and surprisingly I got so many thumbs down. Why? Wouldn’t we all want to see if our politicians are in because of love of country or for love of money? Doesn’t commonsense tell us that if one was paid or offered $100K to run where as another gave up their job to run for free, one is doing it for love of money and the other for love of country? Common guys! As a DLP supporter during the 2000 elections, I was very instrumental in identifying a candidate to Rosie. At that time he was broke as hell and he demanded we pay him $100K to run the election. But guess what, today, that same poor person of 2000 is one of the richest in the Caribbean. Think of that! He is also all over buying votes to stay in power. You see, he got in it because of money and is in it for the money. It was NEVER for love of country and that’s why we need to find a way to ensure future leaders are not there for their belly but for love of country.

    Congrates Mr. Darroux, the next time their is a debate, I hope Skeritt sends you to represent the Government instead of the feller who knows absolutely nothing about the economy. When he was asked a question about the economy, began his reply,” I like it, I really like it, wheel do, wheel do.” I am happy the Kalinago people begin to realize that it isn’t only Mr. Claudius Sanford of the UWP who can become Prime Minister of Dominica someday.

      It does not matter who represents labour in a constituency nor what qualifications or potential they have, they will still be puppets who are not allowed to contribute effectively towards the development of Dominica. Best the PM just choose anyone on the roadside it will come to the same, Ministers with no teeth, backbone or testicular fortitude. These guys turn saff and spineless once they join the labour team. What educated person wants to be like that?

      People please think wisely before you join the labour train. REMEMBER: THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL.

    May 1, 2014

    Sad to say due to the poverty in the territory , the parl rep have always been the person who could supply the most plywood and rum just before the election . When uwp had the money they won that game. DLP have had the money from the past few elections and so Claudius even if he is the better or more capable candidate will find it very difficult to win . I know there are many other constituencies with that same mentality. The shortsightedness syndrome , we only care for what we can get now tomorrow will make for itself. We really need to elevate our thinking in this country.

    Claudius went to study to improve himself and vy for leadership of Workers…. o li? Who controlling who?
    Claudius is deputy leader of Workers,who went on the international tour with Lennox? Claudius was nowhere to be seen.. So if Lennox can treat Claudius like …. publicly what will he do him privately…..
    If Skeritt is a dictator Lennox is a mixture of The Ayatollah and Hitler together……
    Kalinago people you have no choice than to vote Casius.

    • 100% truthful
      May 1, 2014

      @ Who is a dictator, why don’t you stop that nonsense. If that’s your understanding of dictatorship, then let’s look at this FACT. Ambrose George has been the DEPUTY LEADER of the DLP, and has always had a sure seat. at list since 2001 to present. In fact when Skerrit was introduced to the DLP in 1999, Ambrose was already the elected Parl Rep for Roseau South. When Rosie and Piero died, Ambrose along with this candidate from Colihault were the seasoned members of the DLP. But guess who the DLP and Skerrit brushed on a side to ensure Skerrit was made the leader? That same Ambrose George. Sanford was only made the deputy leader of the UWP sometime after the 2005 elections and has never won his seat, whereas Marigot has always been a sure UWP seat. Even if UWP won the 2009 elections and Sandford did not win his seat, the constitution would not allow him to be the PM. AS a result of all the above, UWP had to exercise some wisdom to ensure that the leader of the party was one that had a sure seat. That was not the case with Skerrit and Ambrose, as since 1990, Roseau South has always been a sure DLP seat where as Vieille case constituency has changed party three times since 1990.

        I applaud your efforts in shedding light on that very important fact. So many of them are blinded by temporary fixes that they do not see the need for ways to make things more permanent. Ambrose George despite his faults has always put PEOPLE FIRST! He is a man for the people, by the people and he breaks his back to ensure that his constituents have what they need. Dominicans pretend to not see how Skerrit has made himself Lord and Master of the Commonwealth of Dominica. This man is now the spokesperson for each Ministry in spite of the fact the fact that there are duly elected men and women who are responsible for these Ministries. This man has absolutely no desire to have anyone share HIS spotlight and so many are turning a blind eye. I pray that people will no longer vote on who has the best sewo, but who is actually best suited in character, integrity and morals. God help my country.

    he can go back to the united workers party if he want that ok . NO BIG DEAL. same thing i myself i witness Darroux talking to sanford and a woman started shouted to darroux which i find is pure nonsense. darroux and sandford they are related to each other and also they are friends to each other. i am not going to give myself head ache when i know damm well darroux and sanford are friends. cozier is a good person but people make mistakes at time. no one is perfect

    “Darroux studied in China, graduating with a degree in economics.”

    Well, the late Charles Maynard, graduated from somewhere, he also had a degree in economics, nevertheless, he did not have the ability to run a candy store such as J. Astaphan & Company. He took a vibriant company and brought it to the brink of bankruptcy!

    Had it not been for a hurricane which devastated Dominica, and damaging parts of the company’s building, destroying their stocks, as in (goods) and the insurance company pay off came in handy; J. Astaphan & Co, might be history today. And let us agree also that Maynard has been an operative in the Labor Party government for a very long time, yet with his economic degree, Dominica economy is still the most stagnant in the World!

    Maynard was a minister in the Labor Party government way back in the 1960’s his greatest contribution to Dominica was suggesting “pay them a reasonable amount of money, and if they continue to steal, put them in jail.”

    As a result the salaries of government ministers, and civil servants alike was increased, causing Dominica civil servants to be among the highest paid in Caribbean art that period. Antigua followed shortly thereafter.

    Maynard’s degree contributed nothing to the economy of the country, a degree is nothing more than a piece of paper with one’s name written on it along with a few words, and the name of an institution stating one attended that institution for a period of time, and stayed and completed a process; indicating you are capable of training! That is why in law, and medicine the term in practice is used as long as any lawyer, or doctor lives, because medicine, and law are constantly evolving. Beside what is the big deal of someone attending school in China, when the Chines government pays to school the majority of their students here in the United States.

    The most foreign students found in university’s such as UCLA, and CSU are from China, secondly from parts of the Middle Eastern countries. Note: A degree obtained in China is worthless in the Western Hemisphere, not valued in America, and Europe, England for certain. Dominica; Yes!

    That is an indication that there is something superior with the American educational system, perhaps more advance than what the Chines are capable of teaching, in China we see buildings crumble under the weight of the building: Yet we send people to China to study architectural engineering; I suspect if the mediocre knowledge gained from the Chines are implemented in building in Dominica, we can expect the building to crumble in the not too distance future oui!

    I done see, I doh want to get shot down, I to ole fu dat!

      Francisco Dodds-Telemacque, you need to familiarize yourself with some current events…. read about Schwarzman Scholars. Google it and visit the site, and you will find out how the Western world views a China Degree in this modern day. I hope DNO doesn’t delete the link here, otherwise just google it.

        If I was not modern; and properly informed, I would not know that China has more Students in Universities in the United States, than any other country in the world. I do not have to goggle to find things out; I do not goggle! I leave that to people like you, I have much better sources to obtain information than from the Internet.

        However if you believe that a degree from China is valuable in America, get one from any China University, and come here and see if it will be recognized; see how many people will employ you based on your China education. Let me inform you this, A Canadian doctor, though next door to the United States: may be a specialist in some field, he cannot simply come over the boarder and decide to work in America.

        For that to happen he first have to take the FSE; many of them who tried has failed, and repeat the test, sometimes the better are successful. Do not worry about my English, and diction, because it is much better than yours!

        You write in a combination of patios and English anyway.

      Have you been to China to be commenting on this issues? What do you know about Chinese education system? Have you sat down in a class during a lecture? The Chinese are just naturally competitive and they idolize America, therefore they invest heavily in everything Western because there is a growing desire to adopt Western culture and lifestyles. The main group of persons Chinese feel inferior to is Americans, therefore their goal is to raise their children to be everything like American.
      You’ve raised lots of viable points on dno in previous fora, but this time I must say the bulk of what you’re talking about is ludicrous.

    DNO, let me congratulate you for informing us of all these NEW candidates, on both sides, that want to lead our country. Most of them seem to be very well educated based on their profile and ready to serve. However, I have one more request that I would like to throw at you and all media houses throughout the island.
    In addition to their profile, can you please push each of the new candidates (by this I mean the 18 new candidates of the UWP as well as all those new candidates contesting on the DPL ticket), to reveal to the nation how much they have been paid or offered by the various parties they intend to run for? That is very important to me and most Dominicans because in my humble opinion, if a person has been paid or offered large sums of money to run, their interest is not for the good of the country but their personal interests; whereas, if on the other hand someone is willing to walk away from things to run, without being paid, their concern is the interest of Dominica, which is what we all want to see. You see, if a person is paid $100K to run it is certain that they will ALWAYS seek to please their employer (leader) and will compromise even their Christian values to please their leader. Let’s get real DNO!

        Charlo is the best, just remember his speeches, the only man that Skerro was afraid of.

      Dead wrong about that! Even if Casius Darroux is an economist, we all know that he will NEVER be part of anything, that has anything to do, with money under Skerrit. On the other hand, should UWP win, we all expect the likes of Dr. Fontane, Joshua Francis, Sanford for all of us, Isaac Joseph and that same Ronald Charles, along with Lenox Linton, to be part of an economy recovery plan. So in essence, the race in Kalinago will be between an economist (Snford) vss a puppet (Casius). I am not saying Casisus is not an ecomist but the fact the Skerrit is the leader of the DLP, there is NO WAY under the earth, Skerrit is going to allow Casius to out-star him.

        Skerrit does not even know Basic Principles of Business, but will look down on these fellows, and they will be powerless to say one word. That’s why for the good of our country, he needs to be voted out.

    • May 3, 2014

      I mean they both studied economist this do not make them an economist since they both lack the experience as an economist . Casius ???? Sanford shares some of the theories as a professor. But by the way i think there are persons from the kalinago who studied economics but never worked in their field never given the opportunity when available they have all migrated and doing GOOD out there. Best of luck to Casius the foundation is set alraedy to Sanford boy keep on fighting

    Even if Casius has Degree in economics, that means nothing to Skerrit, because there is NO WAY, he could ever become Finance Minister under Skerrit, according to Skerrit’s own words. So that is a degree that will be useless as the highest ministry he will get is should he win his seat and DLP wins the election is Carib Minister. In fact Casius is out for a very harsh treatment from Skerrit as we all know that he has a problem with those he feels inferior to in terms of qualification. Casius better prepare himself for the “if Reggie them..” mentality of Skerrit.

    It is very unfortunate that the Labour party have decided to use the last virgin to represent them in the kalinago territory up coming general election; a representative is someone who will represent all the people of a constituency at government level, in parliament and in all matters of concern for and behalf of the people of the constituency; you have to have some working and earning and committing experience such as the responsibility of a home your wife and children, your family’s development, education, health, economic well being, investment, commitment to your loans then one will understand what it means to represent a people, we cannot rule out a living experience and send a virgin to represent me, Sa pacay work.
    I must say that this young man have not had the living experience where he compits with his neighbors for a dollar and so he is unstained, but clearly should the labour party forms the next government he certainly will not win the respect of Skerro Black-more Reggie and the likes he is going to be worst off than Ashton.

      @Kalinago, your comment is the best thing I’ve heard in the last decade according to your out going parlrep. You are so correct about that! You are not alone on that but even the bible we claim to believe in, teach these very same principles that we have neglected in our politics. We claim to be a nation under God and to make our religion look good we like to pray and say God, God but we neglect the basic principles laid in scripture when choosing leaders to lead us. God’s Qualifications for leaders.
      1 Timothy 3:1-5 The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. 2 Therefore an overseer[a] must be above reproach, the husband of one wife,[b] sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. 4 He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, 5 for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church? 6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil.

      I know many will say that these are qualifications for church leaders but we need to understand that the bible is a book of principles to be applied in every aspect of life, since the church is an extention of the family and nations. No wonder we elected some young single persons to lead our nation and their name was all over drinking water and had to be advised to get married if they want to win next election. Tremendous observation @ Kalinago!

    For far too long the Kalinago people have been used inside out yet our people continue to be the poorest on the island plagued with social ills such as mass unemployment, sky high poverty, drug abuse, alcoholism, hopelessness, marginalization and the list goes on.,

    I hope that you will NOT bury your head in the sand and represent the indigenous people of Dominica with a loud clarion voice.

      kalinago people too like representatives they can wrap their little finger around and often times these people give them no good representation.what the kalinago people need is someone who can stand up to the likes of regie,blackmoore,skerrit but ofcourse they continue to choose and rally around people who will only be used as door mats.here we go again.

      May 1, 2014

      The woman that is no longer in the running (if she ever was) i worked with a while back. I’ll tell you this she is a woman that knows her stuff. She has worked with the ministry of community development for several years and given several years of hard work to the kalinago territory. She is a hard worker and a no nonsense lady. One might say sometimes she is unapproachable because she won’t put up with peoples nonsense and she will hit you with facts if you try and run your mouth about things that you might not know about like some people usually do. She is not the kind of person who will dish out money to you if you approach her and ask for money for some petty thing that you might want. She is more of the person that you can approach if you have some project or some activity planning, something for community development. What i have noticed though is that kalinago people like representatives who will give them a $20 or $50 here and there when approached. this is why the kalinago territory is so backward. the kalinago people do not choose a representative who can contribute to the development of the community but instead they choose people who can be easily manipulated and pushed over, someone who will give to them on an individual basis rather than on a community level. This is where politics has failed terribly in this country. Before constituents would ask for things for their community like a feeder road, a playground, a community centre etc nowadays everybody wants things for me me me a house, money, materials etc. we need to go back to the good ole days and get people in office who has backbone to represent for the betterment of our communities on a whole.

    “It’s not a matter of me deciding something and dictating it to the people of what I want,” he said. ““I would have to bring all groups together and tell them ‘OK this is my idea, what else can we add to it?’” That is akin to me saying that I am going to cook lunch and you have an input as to what we will have for lunch. So, it’s steak what do you want with it? My friend that is DICTATORSHIP and not inclusion. I wonder where he got that philosophy from? Oh, he studied in China. That’s how democracy works out there coupled with a Supreme Cult figure for a leader.

We have just sealed our fate and tied ourselves to another five years of being marginalized. We saw what happened with Mr. Graneau and his inability to effectively represent us. I pray that the family members that voted you in will speak in your stead in Parliament. The UWP camp is all smiles now because you are no match for Mr. Sanford.

You cannot make a public statement,” the Salybia Constituency has had serious problems with representation over the years,” and expect them fellers to salute you for telling the truth. A prominent Labor Party member has made it clear, truth does not matter. You are a young intelligent man, therefore, why not run as an independent candidate.

Those words remained with me. Showed that from a very early stage you accepted your humble beginnings, recognised all who supported your growth and committed to help others like you who started from humble beginnings. I am not from your constituency but i want to say that I am very very proud of you Cassius. Keep focused on your purpose. You have already proven that you are a gem of a character.
