MP-elect for the Soufriere Constituency, Denise Charles, said she was chosen by God to run the campaign for the Soufriere by-election with a message of unity.

Charles won at the polls raking in 1,342 votes while her competitor from the United Workers Party, Higgs Adam, took 560 votes.

She stated that her team ran a clean campaign and described herself as “vessel of the Most High God.”

“We ran a very clean and positive campaign recognizing that there were great opportunities for the Soufriere Constituency and we needed to send a message to the people, hey, can we put our differences aside and work together,” she told reporters when her massive victory became clear. “And that was my message and I must say to you that this message came straight from the Lord, it is not just from me, I always considered myself as a vessel of the Most High God and he chose that I run this campaign and he wanted me to send that message to the people: it is time we come together, work together as Dominicans in order to build our country.”

She said she is proud of the people who rejected what she called ‘the politics of hate.’

“I am really proud of my people of Pointe Michel, Scotts Head, Soufriere and Gallion who have rejected the politics of hate and decided that we come together to build our constituency and I am really proud of them and I look forward to serving them to the best of my ability.”

She said one of her first tasks is to meet with interest groups of the constituency.

“The first thing I have to do is to meet with different interest groups and people in the constituency, as I mentioned in my messages,” Charles stated. “The farmers, the fisherfolks, taking stock of the skill set we have available in the constituency and to find out what my people want to do in the areas they want further training.”

She stated that among her key focus will be the importation of development and the discussion with the people of major priorities.

“That is what I will do,” Charles stated.

    Denise
    Congratulations
    I sincerely hope though you are not referring to the Prime Minister as ”GOD”
    Lets see where we go to from here .

  5. Denise Charles, my young lady, just stand by your testimony–do not let the messengers of Satan take it away from you–that is who the followers UWP are.

    They all are like the demon possessed people of the Bible, who rushed against Jesus to try to expose His identity to tarnish His mission, because they were afraid of the Power in Him–but the more they tried to do that the more Jesus continued to silence them.

    That is what these UWPites are doing from their Leader to the least of them, they hate it that you are claiming God in your work.

    They are afraid that through PM Skerrit and His Government, now including you, and all other God fearing people in Dominica, they will continue to face defeat; God will not allow the devil to have victory against Him and everyone is seeing that truth through PM Skerrit right into June 07, 2016, in that landslide win which you receive.

    They are the kingdom of Satan divided against themselves they cannot stand!

      “Denise Charles, my young lady, just stand by your testimony–do not let the messengers of Satan take it away from you–that is who the followers UWP are.”

      What testimony does that long hair black woman have to give!

      Where does her testimony originate, from the devils workshop, or yours Elizabeth. Remember when that crazy idiot from Northern California, told the world that the world was going end on a certain date you believe him; and when the come and God world remained it is to this day, when I reproached you and your stupid belief in him; you told me “God gave him a message but he messed it up.”

      How could you playing preacher, know every thing, not knowing that Jesus himself said no one knows the time but the father Jehovah God himself. Anybody can twist a bit of thread around your small finger, and lead you to hell as long as they mention the name God?

      You need to ask that long hair black woman which god she is referring to!

    Only in Dominica can such misfits like the Labour Party folks get elected for doing nonsense. Imagine this young lady sayin God put her there. Listen woman God will not be mocked.. God is never on the side of evil.
    God is never for corruption.
    God detest lies
    God detest abuse of all forms.
    God detest leaders who get rich in the wrong way
    God detest those who preach hate…
    God detest hypocrites
    God detest those who would do anything for money…
    The God of Abraham, Jacob and Isaacs brought down paroah, … God will have the final say in Dominica.. Madam for you to be using God”s name in vain like this is really sad… Keep father God put of you all wicked n evil politics. You guys were behaving very badly during campaign, buying votes.. Now you sayin God doin bribes?
    If my people humble themselves n turn from there wicked ways.. Only then will God heal Dominca.
    Oh yes,, you may have been called by the Greek goddess Narcissus, so don’t mock Jehovah…

    You were chosen by God?

    Are you crazy; do you really believe God have anything to do with you and Politics?

    Let me tell you how God has nothing to do with you and your political stench. Count how many lies you told during your campaign, and how many people you and Skerrit, and the arrested former minister due to inappropriate behavior with a child paid people to vote for you.

    Count how much was spent in money, and materials given in bribes. Lady; long hair black woman: God said he hate a lying tongue he despises corruption, and thievery. He also said he is not a respecter of person.

    If for one thing, lying is one of the sins God hat the most, why would God go back on his word, and chose you a liar?

    God Jehovah sent his prophets to Israel, he spoke to his people through his Prophets, they demanded they wanted a kind as all the other nations: Politics involves in the rein of Kings; what happened Israel God allowed them a King, they ended-up in Egypt for four hundred…

      Politics involves in the rein of Kings; what happened Israel God allowed them a King, they ended-up in Egypt for four hundred years in bondage, (Slavery).

      So, shut up; just shut up; and enjoy the devils pleasure while it last! Keep in mind Jesus said: Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar and unto God the things that are God’s!

      You and Skerrit wherever you all got your money from to buy people, giving them free handouts is the reason you won, it did not come through the power of God.

      And if you want to prove that God has no part with you next election, come clean, don’t bribe, don’t import people to vote Labor, and let’s see the difference in the results, and by they you would look more natural with your natural hair, the kind of face you; your phenotype and was not design by God to accommodate long natural hair never mind a wig!

    Do not put GOD in party politics! He has important things to do and does not take sides in politics or sports. Does that mean that God foresakes all who do not follow your team? Shame on you. Does he ignore our children also?

    Which GOD dat? The one that would go all the way to shut up an abused child’s mother with a whooping $1/2 million package?

    Which God dat? the one that tells our judicial system not to deal expeditiously with child abuse cases, corruption cases, crimes.

    6 and 1/2 a dozen is the same? Yes?

    Why would that God not share that information to all of us, only to you?

    Who really is dat GOD who now says, what is the price for your vote, $10.00, $300, 4 sheets galvanize, 4 posts, 1 gill rum, 2 T-shirts? Your soul?

    Who is dat GOD who oversees the demise, the impoverishment, the dictatorship rule of a peaceful people?
    Who is dat GOD who gives away a people’s land, passports, sovereignty, just like that?
    Never heard of dat GOD, who would dismantle a local Co., with decades of serious works building DA.

    Typical of DNO to use one sentence to rouse up your base. We are all call, we all have a purpose in life. She felt that her calling to serve was from God. Now you will try to misconstrued her statements. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME, your hyperbole tactic of the woman will not work. Do you ever ask yourself, why we cannot attract new people?, Do you ask yourself, why we cannot hold a successfully demonstration? Why we are stuck in the 90’s? Why do we have so much internal fighting and animosity? I understand It’s hurtful when you put your all into a project to see it cannot move of the ground. You have taken the road to stoop to gutter politics and journalism. Now accept defeat as a learning experience and let us throw out hate and bitterness. Instead of trying to rouse out your base extend an olive branch. Hate never prevails.
