DLP sets eye on China-educated candidate for Salybia constituency

The Dominica Labour Party (DLP) has set its eyes on China-educated, Casius Darroux, as a possible candidate to contest the Salybia constituency at the next general elections, well placed sources have indicated to Dominica News Online.

However the DLP is not saying much on the matter and DNO was told that all candidate-related matters should be directed to prime minister, Roosevelt Skerrit.

“I know nothing about that … sorry I don’t know nothing about that,” DLP Public Relations Officer, Dr. Philbert Aaron, told DNO. “Anything to do with candidates, try to reach the prime minister. I’m not even in the universe where that is …the universe for that is with the prime minister.”

Even Darroux is not confirming nor denying the claims.

“Nothing is concrete at this time,” he told DNO.

But according to sources, the matter is already etched in stone as Darroux, who recently returned from China, has already started to campaign, although on a limited basis.

 Graneau has indicated he may not seek re-election

If the sources are correct, Darroux will replace the current MP, Ashton Graneau, who has indicated he might not contest the next election.

“The truth is I am seriously considering not seeking re-election,” he told a press conference in September last year.

He also stated that there are many “ongoing projects” that need to be completed in the constituency and concluded that the people should be the judge of his performance.

But almost five months later in February 2014, in an apparent change of heart, Graneau told GIS that if given a second term by the people he serves, his emphasis will be on economics, beginning with a Farine Processing Plant.

Many sources DNO spoke to on the matter said replacing Graneau with Darroux is not going down well with many Labourites in the constituency.

Some argue that he is a stranger and is hardly known in the constituency.

“Some people are saying only die hard Labourites that will vote for him,” one of the sources, who is familiar with the matter, said.

There have also been rumors that Graneau will also be replaced by Development officer for the Kalinago Territory, Sylvanie Burton.

DNO attempted to get a reaction from Graneau and Skerrit on the matter but was not successful.

The Salybia Consituency consists of the Kalinago Territory, Atkinson and Antrizle.

In the last general election Graneau defeated United Workers Party candidate, Claudius Sanford.

    Good luck Casuis. As the possible candidate to contest the Salybia constituency, you have given the Kalinago people HOPE. With recent developments, it is clear that you are a sure WIN for the DLP. You are The People’s Leader, we are confident that you will bring Change That We Need.

    Skerrit treating the Kalinago people just as he treated hundreds. Whenever election coming he seems to be showing the kalinago people much love and after election he forgetting them. . Skerrit making the Kalinago people believe is because Kelly Graneau and his brother Ashton, were poor candidates as the reason for failure in the Territory so a change of candidate would make the difference. But the truth is the problem is with Skerrit himself and the DLP. They don’t care about the Kalinago people and it is time to change that.

      @Ah magwa sa, you could not have said it better! Labor is not about team; it’s ALL about ONE Skerrit. So he must stop making the kalinago people believe the problem is with Kelly and Ashton. If Skerrit cared about the Kalinago people, he would do everything he could to improve their basic conditions. By going for Casius, is his way of saying that he wants a candidate that understands the ‘one man show’ better since Casius lived in Cuba under Castro. Dominica need team work and not a one man show like Skerrit is pushing for.

    I believe that the Salybia Constituency should be left alone to decide on a candidate whom they feel confident with. Taking a decision to decide on a candidate for the people is not democratic at all. Those days a long gone. The Kalinago people are much more educated now. And have been in the struggle for a long time. We have walk, the walk, and talk the talk. Now is the time to demand for who we want and not who the party wants to give us. No hard feelings, this is us as Kalinago people. We are still struggling for survival there are many more development to be considered for our well being. It is time that we make our own decision. Labour Party, U.W.P. pappie party , same difference. Politics destroying our uniqueness and culture.

    When I look at the way things are unfolding in Dominica these days, I am left to conclude that PM Skerrit is in serious trouble not just because of the election results but because of some dirty pending deals he may have entered into. On one hand, it appears as if the brother is hoping and praying that he does not win the election and is taking necessary steps to lose. Right on the other hand he seems want to give his masters or creditors the impression that he is trying hard to win, so they don’t come after him. The brother really needs prayer!

    Mr Darroux, I do no know who you are, but my advice to you is, stay away from politics. Not because they gave you the opportunity to go to China to study you have to get involved. If you are the person Kylie said you are, you deserve better.

    Casius, as an SDA student, I just cannot understand why you joined yourself with a team that referred to Skerrit as Jesus? Did you not read Matthew 9:16-17 and 1st Cor. 6:16? And Jesus said unto them..
    16 No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse.

    17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.
    1 Corinthians 6:16
    What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh
    Man you put yourself with that team and become one with them? You messed up your reputation and resume.

    “I know nothing about that … sorry I don’t know nothing about that,” DLP Public Relations Officer, Dr. Philbert Aaron, told DNO.

    Dr. Aaron, just last week you were trying to send Lennox to school and that is your grammar? Sorry, I don’t like that. As an ambassador holding a PHD, we expect you to be an example. I heard all you have another doctor going in up in Marigot but to be honest with you Dominicans don’t trust those doctors on the DLP team you know. I hope when he is asked to debate Lennox in the constituency, he will not end up saying “I like this…I like this…I like that…I really like that” and avoid the question all together.

      Now they are all up in arms about an unconfirmed report of a candidate in the Kalinago constituency. The are besides themselves with a street report that Lennox Linton is not wanted in Marigot because the honest people of Matigot do not want to be associated with landgate and daasgate.
      They have gone in denial and I LIKE IT.

      • Sick Laborite
        April 9, 2014

        @bingo, you seem to be very confused in your mind because you contradicting yourself. Here you are saying both Claudius and Mr. Darroux are well educated BUT, according to you Mr. Darroux is with the wrong party. Which to me is true. But later that same day you posted something very different. Here is what you said. ” indeed we need somebody to represent us in the kalinago territory. Claudius can represent us yes. casius can represent us too.
        ALL THE WAY WITH CASIUS.” My question to you is, did the DLP change? The problem is with Skerrit and the DLP and unless we change that, no matter who we vote, as long as Skerrit is in charge, the Kalinago people will just continue to be used by him and the DLP. You think good representation is simply about who is educated? Let me remind you of Rome Bannis of Castle Bruce. He was a farmer with no high school education. Yet in 1990, he ran against two doctors and beat both of them. He went up in 1995 against a far more educated candidate and again beat him. It was he that built the High School in Castle Bruce, where many of our Kalinago children get their education today. You know why, although he was not educated, he was with a UWP team that was willing and able to work for the people unlike this Skerrit thing who is only concerned about himself. Yes we support education but education is not the key to political success. We need team work and that’s what makes TEAM DOMINICA the only choice.

    April 8, 2014

    Its always good to see my fellow countrymen step up and try to represent the citizenry regardless of their political leanings. When Skerro masterminded the coup that saw the overthrow of and ultimate demise of Mr. O, I like many others sang the praises of the them “young man” with a promising future ahead of him. Sadly and regretfully I was wrong for he became the 1st dictator that my country has come to know and for that I owe a debt to the people.

    Having said that, I recognise that While Mr. Darroux’s intention’s may be noble he will be ineffective under the dictator lead DLP. This dictator has no vision and like the Graneau brothers Mr. Darroux will simply pay homage to the great one and become another sacrificial lamb in the pawn for exchange of votes. Simply put, Mr.Darroux should know we have no cabinet in dominica but rather dictatorship lead by a clueless self appointed leader, But once again, welcome to the arena Mr. Darroux and let the race begin for it is my humble opinion that Mr. Claudius is not only a better candidate but is part of a TEAM and will definitely have a voice to share on behalf of his people. Be reminded that Change is NOT an option..

      @bingo, the problem is not about who can represent the Kalinago people and who cannot. For fourteen years you all have been represented by the DOminica Labor Party and Roosevelt Skerrit. If the problem was that of poor candidate, why didn’t Skerrit jump in and help the Kalinago people, where he slept the night of the last election to ensure he wins? If Skerrit did not serve the kalinago people because he did not like Kelly and Ashton Graneau, does he not know that when he punishes the candidates, he is indeed punishing the Kalinago people. Stop allowing Skerrit to fool you all with sweet talks.

    Well whether the man is bright or not. firstly he will have a brighter and more brilliant man to contend with, and this man is “””CLAUDIUS FOR ALL OF US””””. He will meet a seasoned campaigner called “””CLAUDIUS FOR ALL OF US””” Even the Labourites fron the territory are now saying that Skerrit never wanted Ashton, so i think, in their disgust at Skerrit, now is the time for them to turn to “”””CLAUDIUS FOR ALL OF US”””. You cannot be a bright man and when Skerrits Labour Party is on its dying bed you are associating yourself with it. This guy Casius has found himself associating with the wrong Party. A so called Labour Party which exists only in name. One that has failed the dreams and aspirations of the working class man. A GREEDY PARTY, where the Greedies are grabbing everything from the needy. In fact this Labour Party is so filled with these greedies, its like their motto is ‘ALL SHALL BEG”””

    If indeed Mr. Darroux is going up for the constituency I wish him all the luck. For those in the consituency who have doubts about him ( due to lack of konwledge about him), set your mind at ease. For although you do not know him, I DO. And I can say, without a doubt that Mr. Darroux is one of the one of the best and most positive people I have ever met; a man of character, intelligence and vision. I would place my life in his hands any day of the week.. The fact that you do not know much about him does not diminish his fine qualitties.

    Everyone desrves a chance to prove themselves. Therefore I would suggest that you give him his chance. Mr. Darroux ( IF you are indeed running) you have my vote.

    And by the way ( for all those doubting my motives here) I am not a politician or related to a politician. In fact I have very little interest in politics..I am simply speaking as a Dominican who has observed and mentally evaluated Casius Darroux for many years.

      I am simply speaking as a Dominican who has observed and mentally evaluated Casius Darroux for many years.

        Lol. Do you have to be a psychiatrist to observe things and people? We observe aspects of our social and physcial environment every day. Thast how we know how to behave and thats how we understand the world around us..

        Stop being silly Mr. ohhhhhh. If you had not observed human interaction while growing up you would not have been able to speak now and give me the ridiculous response you just did.

      If he is that kind of person whom you profess him to be, i doubt he would associate himself with this Labour Party. IMPOSSIBLE!
      In addition why should one associate himself with a party which will soon be booted out of office?

    “I know nothing about that … sorry I don’t know nothing about that,” DLP Public Relations Officer, Dr. Philbert Aaron, told DNO. “Anything to do with candidates, try to reach the prime minister. I’m not even in the universe where that is …the universe for that is with the prime minister.”

    Dr, Aaron, I like the answer you gave to DNO. I like this. I like this. No, I like that, I am serious Dr. Aaron, I really like that.

    Dr. Aaron, were you in the universe of finance when you represented Roosevelt Skerrit and the DLP during the last economy forum at the state college?

    Welcome to the political ring Mr. Darroux. That is what democracy is all about, stepping forward to do your part win, loose or draw as long as it it done honestly and respectfully. At least the people of the Kalinago Territory will have an option outside of this lame duck moo-moo that they currently have representing them. But let me remind you that there is an atmosphere of change sweeping the country because we realize its NOT an option.

      I aggee 100%. I support change because it has been around from time. We as a people condinue to develop and as we look around we can see the many changes that has occured over the years. Surely, change is for the best. Go Dominica, continue to embrace change and remember it isn’t because one shout change that it is good change. Just look around and you will know.

    Dr, Aaron, even my 4 year old pre-school child knows “I don’t know nothing” is poor grammar; But you know, I like that.

  54. April 8, 2014

    DLP can send Darroux, Graneau or Sylvanie; but I hope the people of Kalinago Territory makes the best decision for their future by voting Claudius Sanford and the United Workers Party.

    Really Dr. Aron this is how you speak? And to think that you taught me at high school….SMDH. “i like that, yeah i like that, i really like that, will do. I mean i like that”

    If you represent the DLP and the future of Politics in Dominica I wish to disassociate myself with the DLP. My decision is premised on your dismal performance at the recently held State College Debate.

    You comment on LL clearly shows that you were out in the ocean without a raft with the matter and topic at hand so you need to deflect some attention from you and you used the man. It has clearly backfired because before the exercise was over who came to full view of the well educated fool who stood at the podium with ecenomic constipation after a peroid of verbal diahorea because you spoke about sexy opposition and all that irrelevant stuff. I can reasonably conclude without any fear of contradition that you are not worth the paper that your degree/s is inscribed on.

    Why is it that no decent individual dead or alive wants to be associated with the DLP?

    I am afraid that anyone who associates himself or herself to this “Dead” labour party will be condemn to the gabbage dump of political history!!

    Take note.

    Hey DNO is your sources “word on the street” in the Salybia Constituency. The uwp team does not like word on the street concerning the rejection of Lennox Linton (the mouth of the west) as a replacement for The Hon. Edison James . Well Marigot is on the North East ( Linton is the mouth of the South West) . Just the word on the street.

      @Emile Zapato You seem to be a dumb and deaf Labourite. Obviously a rejected Labourite of no importance to the party, who is begging to be relevant as far as Skerrit and the wicked cabal are concerned. I have heard that news as well. It is no surprise that you do not know, because you are seen as irrelevant by Skerrit. However this is Claudius time, and no Labour shoe or Zapato, will come in his way.
      By the way can you this Emile Zapato have mor respect for our statesman and patriot LENNOX LINTON? Will you please refer to the gentleman as the Incoming Prime Minister. I know you were stupid enough to thought that Skerrit would stay in power forever. The news for you is that he is already defeated. Just tell him to call the election, and you will see it yourself.

        @O,……. I agree with you . I am all that and more. I cant see and cannot write either. I LIKE IT! .I cant even read I even dropped out of reform school because I was butchering the English Language and I had many lapse in judgement. . I also like to crash functions to which I am not invited, and when I am invited I find excuses not to attend so I can snob diplomats and the people they represent. I can offer Dominicans double talk ,hate , boycott, landgate,, aggression, agitation and Daasgate to finance my campaign. They also call me the mouth of the west. I LIKE IT!

      @Emile Zapato
      Emile when last have you blogged 18-3? Were you one of the Skerrites bombarding DNO with this thing that tricked you to the point where now you and Skerrit are battling for survival?
      When will you and Skerrit visit Marigot to see to it that the incoming PM Lennox Linton loses his deposit? Can you remember these were Skerrit’s words? I wonder what you can do now Emile to save the corrupt Labour Party? I wish Skerrit could bench you and demand that you save him from defeat from the polls. That’s what people like you deserve.

        @T, ……….Thanks Mr. T for calling me people. What a great honour.. WOW you even know what I deserve Well I have this maidas touch and I am making the DLP victory for next election 21 to 0.
        As for Linton ,I agree he is incoming ,very incoming . He will be incoming like a donkey’s tail, downwards.
        We visit Marigot all the time to see the improvement of the road, and the upgrading of the airport. We do not grudge the Marigot voters who choose Edison James last election , hence the road and airport improvement in transportation infrastructure. This I did not hear on the street I see them. I LIKE IT! I observe that you and @O cannot accept the truth and cannot accept defeat. Some people still cannot accept the moon landing or the Presidency of Obama.

    PM Skerrit is planning his own downfall whether he realizes it or not. He will not win with this new, young and inexperienced guy at all. Never !! If he wants a win, he will have to go with Graneau because even die hard laborites will not vote for Cassius. Skerrit crossed the personal boundary with Matthew Walter and his “family”, he’s out, he now wants Graneau out, against the wishes of the constituents, there are more to come and if he does not listen to the constituents, he will fall flat, flat, flat on his face. Kalinagoes are not foolish people. The people do not want Sylvannie, however he has a worse chance with this young…. PM Skerrit, this is NOT an audition for the Karifuna Cultural Group ok? You need to have our welfare at heart. We Kalinagoes are looking at you. Malkaway and you will find out!!!!

      He is young and strong and afraid of no man in town. He is smart too . You see how he side step the ambush they plan for him in a debate form. You cannot clean bowl Sobers with a google. I LIKE IT!
