The opposition United Workers Party (UWP) will be holding what has been described as a ‘historic’ delegates conference in Castle Bruce on Sunday during which major changes are expected to take place in the leadership hierachy.
The conference will be held under the theme “Change is a must.”
It is widely expected that Lennox Linton will be confirmed as political leader after he was nominated by the Nominations Committee of the UWP on August 16.
However, Ronnie Isidore will also be considered for the top post by the delegates since his name was also brought before the committee. It is reported that Claudius Sanford has dropped out of the race for that post.
Other persons recommended by the Nominations Committee for top leadership poste are: for President, Ezekiel Basil candidate for Wesley; Ms Alroy Williams; Deputy Political leader, Joseph Isaac, Candidate for Roseau Central; Vice President, Hector John, Parliamentary Representative for Salisbury; for treasurer, Jameson Johnson; Assistant Secretary, Clive Prosper and Glenroy Cuffy; Public Relations Officer.
Ron Green, Edison James and Norris Prevost were nominated as trustees.
Roseau MP, Norris Prevost said among resolutions expected to be presented to the conference will be one reaffirming the UWP commitment made at its first Convention at Londonderry to amend the Constitution of Dominica to ensure that no one person is allowed to serve as Prime Minister for more than two consecutive terms.
“This Policy position of the United Workers Party, was in keeping with the advice given to Dominicans by Mr Edward Oliver Leblanc, first Premier of Dominica, in his outgoing address to the Labour Party, when he resigned office after serving two and a half terms,” he said.
