LABOUR VICTORY: Can’t stop this party

ROSEAU, Dominica, CMC – Dominicans stuffed their support of the Roosevelt Skerrit administration into the ballot boxes on Friday and gave the ruling Dominica Labour Party (DLP) a third consecutive victory, while at the same time condemning the once powerful Dominica Freedom Party (DFP) to the political graveyard on the island.

“We have come to the end of a necessary, but arduous process of electing a new administration, to manage the affairs of government for the next five years. I am grateful, but humbled, that you have once again reposed your confidence in the Dominica Labour Party,” a jubilant Prime Minister Skerrit said in a broadcast soon after the preliminary results were announced.

The DLP won 17 of the 21 seats that were at stake in the elections with the other four going to the main opposition United Workers Party (UWP) that had ruled the island from 1995-2000.

For the second consecutive general election, the DFP, which once ruled this island from 1980-1995 under the leadership of the “Caribbean Iron Lady” the late Dame Eugenia Charles, failed to win any seat.

Its leader, Judith Pestaina, a former international public servant, was among the party’s 11 candidates that all lost their deposits having failed to make any meaningful impact on the election that had generally been seen as a two-horse race between the DLP and the UWP.

Preliminary figures showed that Prime Minister Skerrit, 37, whose close alliance with Venezuela had been among the campaign issues, comfortably won his Vieille Case seat, trouncing his challenger, former government minister Maynard Joseph of the UWP by a three to one margin.

“My commiserations are extended also to those who did not quite make it on this occasion. I hope they will be gracious in defeat and will accept the will and verdict of voters,” Skerrit said, telling supporters “there is no room for acrimony or gloating. We accept our victory, with humility”.

By contrast, Opposition Leader Ron Green, 69, was just able to prevent newcomer Petter (Correct) Saint –Jean from winning the La Plaine constituency that he had won by a majority of just under 200 votes in the 2005 poll.

Green received 727 votes, 12 more than Saint-Jean, while former prime minister and UWP president, Edison James comfortably won the Marigot constituency, brushing aside a challenge from the DLP’s Dayton Baptiste with a 833 to 226 margin.

Justina Charles, the wife of the late prime minister Pierre Charles, who died in office in 2004, continued the DLP’s dominance of the Grandbay constituency in the south of the island, by polling 1, 355 votes, with her closest challenger only mustering 122 votes.

Among the notable casualties of the election was Dr. William Para Riveiere, who resigned as an executive member of the DLP a few years ago to form his own party that also failed to have any impact on the outcome of the election.

A record number of 62 candidates representing five political parties and five independents faced the electorate of 67, 200 and electoral officials said they were pleased with the smooth running of the polls that were monitored by observers from the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and the Organization of American States (OAS).

In the 2005 general election, the DLP won 12 seats, the UWP eight and the other seat going to an independent candidate.

Skerrit said that he would be advising his party to suspend formal celebrations until a designated period in the New Year, “when I look forward to expressing our thanks and appreciation to the voters of Dominica, in grand and traditional style.

“It is my intention therefore, after consultation with the private sector, to declare a public holiday in the month of January, so that the country can truly celebrate and savor the achievement of our having conducted a peaceful and conclusive process of electing a new government,” he added.

    The prime minister deserves another term for work done. The rest are allegations which got the most vicious scrutiny and no evidence was brought foward.
    It would be nice the electronic opposition the great investigators …could tell us the Fligt Numbers, the number of persons which came in to vote, what happened to them when they arrives at the Ports of Entry The numbers of buses and their Registration Numbers which took then away, where did they go and how did they pass the Party Agents Election Official , the International Observers and the Press on polling day

    He may have won the ELECTION YES, But at what cost? DEMOCRACY IS ABOUT FREE AND FAIR ELECTION, SADLY THIS ONE WAS NOT. DOMINICANS WAKE UP WAKE UP. The PM HAS ALREADY STUDY THE MINDS AND BEHAVIOR OF THE PEOPLE, SO HE’S USING PSYCHOLOGY ON THEM. Its so sad to see how some of our hard working people has become. Laziness and greed has taken them over, not wanting to work hard for what they want. Instead siting by and waiting for hand-out. Just take a good look at who our PM’s ASSOCIATE himself with. THE BOLIVARIANS ALLIANCE A BUNCH OF DICTATORS. IS THAT WHAT WE DOMINICANS WANT A ONE PARTY STATE HUMMM. LORD HELP THEM AND FORGIVE THEM FOR WHAT THEY HAVE DONE.

    In American politics,it is called having a long coat tail. This is not a unique political experience by any stretch of the imagination; however, I find the need to analyze and shred political results that simply indicate a choice of representation very alarming.

  6. December 22, 2009

    Everybody know that dominicans didn’t vote for their candidates in their constituency, they voted for Roosevelt Skerritt. They are “Skerritites” not Labourites. When you have people voting back … like the candidate for Roseau South who was fired by TWO Prime Ministers. What does that tell you? When you hear them saying with a shame look on their face “Is Skerritt I voting for” what does that tell you? And who do they think they are going to see once the election is over? Roosevelt Skerritt? I bet you NOT!

    If it were legal, Roosevelt Skerritt would have contested all 21 seats. That’s how arrogant he is and that’s how blinded dominicans are. Fattening his pockets while keeping people begging for a few dollars, so they can stay grateful to him. THAT IS PSYCHOLOGY AT IT’S BEST!!

    we do not hav democracy in this country since votes hav to be purchased. Skerrit is like the rich man in the bible who lived in luxury and when he died he opened his eyes in hell and he told father abraham to send lazarus to dip his finger in water to cool his tongue becuz he was tormented in the flame. Ron Green is like lazarus and there will come a time when skerrit will ask Ron Green to rescue him its jus a matter of time.

    THE GOD WE SERVE IS A JUST GOD AND THE EVIL THAT MEN DO LIVES AFTER THEM.

    Congratulations to the DLP. I would have really loved to see the election won without the injection of overseas voters into specific seats. Yes dominicans who leave out of Dominica who constantly visit the island should have a right to vote, but if they are so interested in country why not pay for their own passage hmmmm. DEMORCRACY??? oh please ….people talking about how “the people have spoken” have they really?? The day the DLP wins the election without the injection of voters that’s the day I will say, “the people have spoken”.

    God Bless

    All those of u who r making all the unfounded allegations r in the minority because the majority of dominicans have spoken. If this government was so corrupt would they have won so convincingly? What does it say of a leader of a party’s ability to lead when he can’t convincingly/ cannot win his own constituency. So u bitter loser accept the majority decision and begin making a greater contribution to our countries development. Labour Power, UW pwee….

    Congratulations.
    Looking forward to Synergistic Sustaibable development. Nice to see inclusion of my prebudget consultation suggestions of:
    1. Inviting and providing tax incentives for our Diasora sisters and Brothers to return to contribute to nation building. 2. Income tax reduction. 3. Crime prevention rather than fighting. 4.increased agriculture investment.
    5.Value added social programs.
    5.retained VAT =pay as you spend rather than as you earn.

    Even My community owned and operated Marina, 60 room hotel and waterfront mall project for sunshine village I submitted to NDC in 2006 and displayed as a powerpoint presentation at the portsmouth town council meeting at RBD cinema hall.
    Although it was rejected in favour of crews inn group that never delivered. I am happy it may actually become a reality.
    We need it. Don’t forget my grandmothers dream to see the breaking from exile her fellow Kalinago . Have been subjected to, by providing 10acres at woodfordhill for another model Kalinago village resort to provide employment and expanding craft outlet.

    Great victory speach.

    To my fellow dominicans….I come from a family who supports the UWP…but i’m in no way influenced by either political party. I’m neutral and unbiased. Be careful of what you post online, the negative remarks, and degrading crticism will not give victory, it has already happened. I am all the way in the US reading this and so will many ppl dominicans as well as foriegners. This leaves a negative brand of dominica if you should know. Unless all the allegations are proven against the PM, we should be careful how we handle these allegations. To the current PM Hon. Mr.Skerrit remember Country first. I also want to admonish that the majority is not always right, if this was the case the world would be a perfect place. I have been watching d/can politicans from the sidelines and what I have observed the opposing party has spent too much time, searching and condemning the DLP..now although I know this is politics. What the UWP should’ve have been doing was to use the same method they used back in 1990 when they lost they starting campaigning and created strategies/plans(manifesto) to move the country ahead in 1995 the succeeded. The same tagic should have been used 5 years ago. Lack of funding had a great to do with the poor planning. To all the ones rejoicing ask yourself this question, not what my country can do for me but what I can do for my country. I will also mention that unless, dominicans get out from the mindset of “gimme” this beautiful country will only remain at a very slow paced of development. Don’t be fooled there is no way that all the promises will be given in the first 100 days, it’s a repeated mistake that ppl have failed to address. It’s a shame of the comments left on here, botherly love has been lost? Yes, I will say this with no shame. Stop using the name of God in vain—saying God brought justice to the UWP or vice visa it’s your free will that brought the outcome. God is still covering Dominica and Dominicans with his grace. God can not dwell where there is so much hate, don’t be hypocrites and say I don’t hate. One more thing to the DLP be careful how you use the term “NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER” , if you are busy forming carnal weapons to the others in time it may be a weapon for yourselves. Sometimes God allows things to happen to teach us lessons. I would like to end to Congratulate the winning party DLP. Let’s get back to the roots and know this to shall past to my fellow christian folks…esp to the SDA folks if you know you have offended your brother during this elections, leave the altar and go to that brother/sister to ask their forgiveness. Let God have his way. Blessings

    I think what we need to learn to do as a people is show some respect. It does not matter whether you voted for Prime Minister Skeritt or not, he has been reelected and I am sure that those of you who are using all these derogatory terms to describe him have not even had the opportunity to hold an intelligent conversation with him. I have been leaving in the States for some years now, left when I was nineteen and it was under his administration I saw progress being made in Dominica, whenever I go home to visit. With that said, congratulations to ALL Dominicans who took the opportunity to exercise their right to vote and CONGRATULATIONS to Prime Minister Skeritt and his team!!! I pray God gives you to wisdom to continue to make the right decisions.

    it’s alright…see how violent our people are with their writings…anytime someone says something against your party, you attack them…enjoy the free speech while you still have it…this government is going to change the constitution completely…why? because they can. all what skerrit was accused of is ‘conveniently’ going to be allowed by the constitution when it gets changed…why? because they can…they are going to decide that there will be no more elections in dominica…why? because they can. The people have spoken. The people have made them more powerful than any other government in the history of dominica. no balance in parliament…no freedoms…all i can say is let me take my family and get out of this country before things start getting out of hand…dominica is not for all…dominica is only for labourites…cause nobody can talk against the government (which is their fundamental right) without being pounced on by a bunch of idiots who cannot even spell…and most of the ones commenting have not even read the issues or allegations…anyhow. best of luck to all of you…and good luck to Dominica. you were once the pearl of the Caribbean…now, you’ve become the joke of the region…

I lost every bot pf respect for that man and his associates after he lied to the nation about the money he GAVE to Anguilla and Antigua.

    Have the Caricom members all along been deceived by Dominica/EU operative at the forefront of trade negotiations?

    Have we in the Caricom lost and do we stand to lose because of the breach of trust in negotiations because of the secret allegiance to a foreign power?
    If so How many billions of $?
    Are these Foreign powers with a history of fighting several wars to gain access to the resources within the region?

    What is the word for using a psychology degree, deceit and cheating to win an election so that the states resources can be handed over to foreign powers? Is there not a law against this?

    What is the name given for the act of using a cheated elected office be appointed to negotiate regional matters?
    Silenced press…

    As a nonpartisan undecided Voter after hearing the ‘Rumors’ about radio time censorship, I decided to check for myself and drove around the island on the 17th of December with my car radio searching for radio station signal…campaign coverage.
    My 1st observation was the Dominica Broadcasting Services (DBS Radio) …seen driving his …. traveling due south next to Budget rent a car, on the 17th of December 2009, decorated with Red flags. Was this a conflict of interest?

    I did confirm that I was only able to get Kairi FM and occasionally DBS in most of the constituencies. The few times you did get Q 95 it was disturbed by kairi in the background or by a strange interference buzz that coincided with any opposition message.

    Why do the election results match closely those of the color radio signal… Deprived or allowed freedom of information?

    What are the track records of the two nonstop recorded voices of Kairi? One the one hand Years of EU ambassadorial banana negotiation (success or failure) and the Caribbean Lebanese special interest?
    (Unfortunately my intended companion for the island wide drive, a local manufacturer could not join me as He was delayed in the slow line at customs trying to clear some of his inputs in the two tare customs processing system…while the foreign exchange exporting Company with the same name as the voice on the Kairi radio station got the fast track treatment).

    On Q95 was maybe too much preaching the same message to the converted, lacking tact that would attract the on the fencer like myself and putting the die hard up against the wall rather than allowing reflection through questions like:

    1. Why was it I could not get this message out on Dominica News Online the day before elections?

    December 19, 2009

    I was born in Dominica and left at an early age. Yes, I am an American citizen. I am also a 100% DOMINICAN. Putting politics aside, can someone please answer these questions?

    1. What are my voting rights? 2. Is it ok for wanting to see improvement in my county? 3. Is it ok to retire there? 4. Can I start a business? 5. As a matter of fact is it ok for me to visit? (LOL!!)

    I become totally frustrated when I read some of these blogs. Time after time, I see so many people writing a bunch of ignorance that I am concern that if I choose to make Dominica, the country I was born in, my permanent home I would not be welcome. How can the country improve if so many of you want to continue with the same old attitude. We are living in a forever changing world. Get use to it!

    The sad thing is many of us who have left the country, for what ever reason, continue to carry the same small minded attitude. For example, while attending a Dominican function, I’m grilled about where I’m from, where my husband is from, ect., with negative verbal and body gestures. Does it matter? That sort of attitude hurts my feelings and those I love. I’ve attended countless functions with many people of other nationalities but no one seem to mind what village or city they are from. They give props to where its due. Isn’t it about time us to start acting proud of OUR COUNTRY and not our individual villages? Everything has a time and place. The experiences that I have had with Dominicans outside of Dominica for the most part has been positive, but some of you need to relax and open up to accept change. If something is occurring that you don’t like petition against it! Let the government know that its not acceptable. Go to the source of the problem instead of spreading vicious lies. Getting angry at those of us who live away will not solve your problem. Banning together will! I have so much more to say, but I’ll stop for now.

    Whether you agree or not, we still need to show the world that we have some sense. Respect Yourself, respect your Prime Minister, respect your Country!

    MAY YOUR HOLIDAYS BE FILLED WITH GOOD TIDINGS AND JOY!!!
    PEACE AND BLESSING TO ALL. ONE LOVE

    Wow, now maybe PM Skerritt will get to build his international airport, lower taxes, build new roads and infrastructure, and make sure every Dominican has a job. Wait a minute, that is what he said he was going to do during the last four years. LOL. Well congrats to the PM and the people of Dominica. Let’s see if you are any better off four years from today. My guess is that the Dominican people will continue to lack services, have high unemployment, and paid the highest taxes/duties/VAT in the Caribbean. Dominica is indeed one of the most beautiful place on earth but you can’t eat scenery. But you might get an international airport. Question is, will they come if you build it.

    December 19, 2009

    In all of this I’ve had one great fear and it is the ‘special’ relationship that Skerrit has with Chavez and the influence that Chavez has over him. I and many others are very concern that we will slowly lose our democratic rights and freedoms and that Dominica is becoming a welfare state where people will always depend on the government for hand-outs. Meme chien, meme pwel.

    Congrats Dominica. Best wishes to teh winning team led by Prime Minister Skerrit. The people have spoken.Let us move on and get Dominica back to work. Hon. Ron green’s post election statement sounds very much like a bitter loser. Mr. green if you see any irregularities take the matter to the court. the media cannot assist your cause. Only one institution can – that is th eHigh Court of Dominica. Stop that nonesense in the media. The people of Domnica are not listening to such hateful diatribe. Teh election results so indicate.

    To the eledted parliamentarians. take PrimeMinister Skerrit’s advise. Vist your constituency. Stay in touch with your people. They need to see you not every five years but every month at least and more where posible. In this way PrimeMinister Skerrit will not have to come at the next election campaign to shore up your candidacy.

    Prime Minsiter Skerrit, this term has to be the time for Roseau Roseau South. We need the projects. Charlote Valley Development the new School in Newtown, sidewalks in Loubiere, more land for the landless (agriculture and housing) in the Chateau, Snug Corner Estate areas. Mr. George shake up.

    I proud Dominican living abroad. I am very proud of my country and my culture, but after reading some of the comments posted during the electorial season by Dumb-inicans it’s hard to say that i’m proud of my people. I can’t help but to compare them to crabs in a bucket, instead of working together for a greater good we keep pulling each other down. In Dominica we operate under a democratic goverenment system,where the people where asked to choose and chose who they saw was fit to run the counrty. Now that the elections are over we need to drop our political bias and unite as one to take Dominica forward.

    To the UWP, Evaluate and reorangize, you used the same strategy for the last two elections and it did not work and to tell you the truth, it will not work the next time. Some people will have to resign, others you will have to disassociate yourself from, though matter how difficult oit may be. You really didnot show Dominicans how, what and where you were going to do if you won.

Please leave the negative past behind , with confidence and support from your people you can truly meet amazing heights, but without confidence and supports, even your simplest accomplishments are beyond your grasp.

    i hope now that the labour party has won the elections and the pm has said that the elected are the servants of ppl i hope he will come forth and answer questions that are posed to him in the future and not send his messangers to do that on his behalf.he was given the mandate not crazy t or tony astphans.so when the dominican ppl have questions i want to see the pm man up to his responsibilties and answer to the ppl who elected him.i’m now calling on the pm to close the files on all the bobol that was talked about before the elections that it leaves no doubt in the minds of the ppl.you said a new year is approaching and its time to put a stop to all the nonesence and propel dominica to another level.i’m all good with that.i’m not aligned to party per say but i did not support your candidate cuz i think hes incompitent as a politician and would like to see him pay more attention to the ppl of the paixbouche constituency.its time he gets up his behind and show some appreciation to the ppl of the paix bouche constituency for their unwavering support of him for the last 15 years but doing some work especially in calibishie.the calibishie ridge road needs immediate attention.to all the UWP supporters out there hold your heads up high.elections are now over and its time to give support to the government and seek to move the country forward.we are all dominicans and we have to remember to put dominica first.congratulations to the labour party and we will be expecting you to deliver on the promises made.

    oh shut up all of you. not even a congratulations. elections is over, at least take the next 4-5 years and help build the country. if you think dominica is going nowhere it is because you lazy fools spend too much time criticizing and partying a little to no time, helping each other out to build the country.
    saying things like red is the devil is just ridiculous and childish band bitter. How many rimes have you tried to improve yourself?
    how many times have you offered suggestions to move your village, parish or country forward?

  96. NEUTRAL (Time 4 Government)
    December 19, 2009

    You see the sad thing about Dominican politics; even though the elections are done and the majority has spoken many of US (Elected Leaders, Voters and Nonvoters as well) are still going to be campaigning for the next “5” FIVE years until the next election. What we need to do is stop spreading the hate and unsubstantiated rumors and give you support to the government. After elections there is no more talk about ruling party it’s about the government. Give the leaders a chance to lead, nothing wrong with voicing your opinion but listen with an open mind.

    ONE LOVE DOMINICANS,

    LETS START BUILDING THIS NATION.

    December 19, 2009

    How and why will folks fight democracy this is Dominicans’ right expressed as clear as day yet people cry down that right and are cursing the nation they say that they love so mush. I’d like to ask, who placed D/ca on the BKACK list, who left D/ca bancrupt and the list goes on.one guy said that he was ashamed of beening a Dominican because of the PM let me say that’s a hellish lie, my work calls for a lot of traveling and its the first time i’m so proud to be call a Dominican. Under the UWP i had to hide this using my other nationality to go to Europe and the U S today i speak of D/CA with heaps up; The PM is respected all over yet some BLUE VEX guyes just hungry 4 power because there is some money now, they are ready to kill to regain or retain power, they can’t prove the corruption but keep crying “BE MEN” why should Dominicans give D/ca to men that can’t agree with each other? How can we alow a band with …. to lead us? how will they represent us when some have been expled from and are not welcomed in certin countries? its time to accept the truth and move on in peace. note that Dominica is one of the few countries that have sent no one home as a result of the economical break down————-God bless D/ca,God bless the PM, Peace to Dominica

  103. Disappointed
    December 19, 2009

    Initially I had decided not to post any comments, I was under the impression that the elections were over and it was time to continue with in act of Nation Building. However, I am deeply disturbed by some of the comments posted on here. When I see people comparing the PM to Hitler and the likes, I have to ask my self if ignorance and downright stupidity are the order of the day in my counrty. We seem to have forgotten that Dominica does not belong to any one political party, and the comments that we make or the things that we say can be seen and heard worldwide. To the innocent bystander it would seem as though D/ca is some kind of war zone. By making such statements about the PM of your country, you are not hurting him, but Dominica is the one suffering. I think it’s time that some of us educate ourselves and be more mindful of the statements that we make.
    Those of you who have uttered such verbal vormit shound be ashamed of yourselves. Dominica is not some type of battle field where one party has commandered the people and dictating to them what they should do. We are still a democratic state, and that is evident by the elcetions that were just held. Everyone was given the chance to exercise their rights, and now that the majority have spoken, let us put politics aside and begin to work towards building a better Dominica.

    Thank You.

    Well I must extend congratulations to Ian Douglas and the entire team of the Dominica Labor Party. People the election is over now. We must try and work together to build our country. If the people saw that Skerritt was corrupt as they claim then the Dominicans would not have given him another mandate to rule the countrry.
    God is good and he is good all the time. He has the power in his hands no matter what. He gives us the wisdom to guide our selves.

DO YOU THINK THAT NOW ELECTION IS OVER AND DONE WITH YOU CAN GO TO SKERRIT AND ASK HIM FOR MONEY TO PAY YOUR RENT? HMM YOU CAN THINK AGAIN ALL THOSE THINGS WERE JUST ELCTION GIMMICKS AND WE FELL FOR THEM. EVERYBODY FROM THE DIASPORA WHO CAME DOWN TO VOTE WHEN U GO BACK TO YOUR RESPECTED COUNTRIES ALL RIGHTS YOU HAVE THERE SHOULD BE STRIPPED FROM YOU AND YOU SHOULD BE SENT BACK TO DOMINICA TO SUFFER WITH THE REST. DOMINICANS FATE HAS BEEN SEALED AND DOOMED AND WAS DONE BY THEIR OWN HANDS. WE CAN SAY BYE BYE TO DEMOCRACY THIS IS THE LAST ELECTION. SKERRIT IS NOW PRIME MINISTER FOR LIFE.

    December 19, 2009

    Politics is always an emotional and debatable hot subject. It is understandable that many are frustrated or disappointed by the results if they were not supporters of the winning party. However, a negative attitude is going to take Dominica nowhere fast.

    The reality…
    The majority of your friends, neighbors and fellow Dominicans believe in the ability of the current Government. Whether they are right or wrong is a matter of opinion. And that can only be observed as proven true based on the next 5 years.

    Governments, politics and corruption go hand in hand. It’s happened with past parties in office, I’m sure it has happened with this party, and it will continue to happen when new parties are voted in power. The nature of the business is a hostile, dirty game… it’s just the system. Always remember though, that the power lies with YOU. YOU vote, YOU are being represented, and in the name of democracy, YOU have a voice, and YOU can demand that the government (whichevery party) represent YOU and YOUR values and ideas.

    The attitude of backlashing, giving up and being uncooperative is what allows governements to take advantage of the PEOPLE’s power. When you slide back to a passive participant in the system you allow the political leaders to have THEIR way. Whether you won tonight, or lost… don’t ignore the POWER that YOU hold. Participate fully, agree, disagree, protest, support, but most importantly PARTICIPATE and COOPERATE so that you share in getting things done for YOU!!!

    Just a positive message for all the winners and those who weren’t so successful in the results of the polls tonight. I love my home country, and believe in the ability to succeed despite who is voted in to lead…

    Dominicans have spoken. I am one who lives outside, and did assure myself that the ‘PEOPLE” would have spoken. Like it or not they have. I depended on DNO, friends and relatives to give me information, gossips and their views, and in response I always told them I am confident in the voice of the people, if the Labor Party is or was as corrupted as some friends/relatives told me then I was sure the People would have said something behind this curtain. In all fairness they won a big majority, so this gives me a level of assurance that there is something maybe just a little something that the People saw the Opposition does not have. Now is time to settle down.

    I need to say “CONGRATS” to my Brother in St Joe, Go ahead and “REPRESENT” your people my brother, we are family of ambition and I know you will put intergrity first.

    THE PEOPLE OF DOMINICA HAS SPOKEN. TEARING DOWN THE PM OR THE DLP IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE ANYTHING. THE PEOPLE OF THE COUNTRY MUST COME TOGETHER FOR THE SAKE OF DOMINICA. IF THE OTHER PARTIES HAD IT SO RIGHT AND THE PEOPLE WANTED THEM THEIR THEY WOULD HAVE CAPTURE MORE SEATS, THIS IS A RESOUNDING VICTORY FOR THE DLP AND WITH ALL THE TATICS USED TO DESTABLIZE THE PM HE KEPT HIS HEAD HIGH AND STICK TO THE PROGRAM. PERHAPS IF RON GREEN AND THE OTHERS DID THE SAME AND NOT BUILD THEIR CAMPAIGN AROUND SLANDER AND DIRTY POLITRICKS THEY WOULD HAVE BETTER RESULTS. WHO FEELS IT KNOWS IT AND THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE KNOWS DLP HAS DONE POSITIVE THINGS FOR THE COUNTRY.

    PM GOD BLESSINGS BE WITH YOU ALWAYS, REMAIN GRACEFUL AND HUMBLE SEEK GOD FIRST IN ALL WAYS HE WILL SURELY DIRECT YOUR PATH. WHEN THEY TRY TO TEAR YOU DOWN JUST SAY ‘TO GOD BE THE GLORY’ AND KEEP IN MIND NO WEAPON FORM AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSPER.

    UWP should clean house. Fire Leader, Fire Campaign Manager, Fire Fundraisers, Fire Advisers, etc. This was the worst managed campaign in history.

    1- You begin by attacking the Diaspora- every home in DA has people out there.
    2- You attack the Public Workers- the most skittish people in the land who have always regarded you with suspicion.
    3- My God you attack the Church ala Groovey Bats comment.
    4- You attack the Caribs- you call them ‘engin corbo’.
    5- You attack patois speaking people for being backward
    6- You built your campaign on discrediting the PM reputation. No problem good tactic but you have this burden to prove it. Without conclusive eidence an almost impossible task for you to achieve. Then you turn around and tell Dominicans they are stupid thats why they are not seeing it. Frustrated, you insult them because you cannot give them the evidence for your case. Dont you see your mistake.
    6- The PM is seen as a playboy, no problem. Why doesn’t the UWP leader emphasise his family man credentials by flaunting his beautiful wife and lovely daughters at campaign rallies ala Obama.
    7- YOUR CAMPAIGN WAS BUILT ON TELLING DOMINICANS HOW STUPID THEY ARE TO HAVE SKERRITT, LABOUR PARTY IS TELLING THEM HOW GREAT A PEOPLE THEY ARE, NO WONDER SKERRITT MOST FAMOUS STATEMENT IN THE CAMPAIGN WAS ‘ALL THE SEXY GIRLS ARE WITH LABOUR’ dO YOU BELIEVE ANY GIRL WOULD WANT TO BE SEEN IN YOUR RALLIES. The UWP mantra has always been Dominicans are stupid. ITS A MARIGOT INFECTION THAT SHOULD BE TREATED OR ELSE IT WILL BECOME FATAL TO YOUR PARTY. I could go on but chew on this. Mwenmem.

How long have you leave in DA under the different parties to see what they have done. sometimes stop looking at politics look at the future and progress that is going on in your country. UWP was in office and did nothing for DA but dept, look at the educated people in the world that say DA is in the right path, doing much better than other countries bigger and has more progress than DA. At the end of the day i look for progress in my country not how running it.

    One more thing…you all will realize your mistake when you will be crying for help…asking the international community to save you when all your rights and freedoms are taken from you…but they will laugh at all of you and say, “aren’t these the same people who gave the leader a landslide victory?” fools rush in. fools for gold. fools for quick handouts…no wonder when we say we are dominicans in any of the other Caribbean islands people frown on us and treat us like second class citizens saying we are opportunists and greedy people… i now see it is true…we like handouts…we like ‘freeness’…everyone must give, give give. don’t work for yourself… damn idiots! zor kay weh…plus tard, plus triste….

When he leaves office, he will have all his ill gotten assets to fall back on but you all will not have anything to show for it since all he is giving to you all is instant gratification. The “freeness” will end someday. I will be looking closely at the next 100 days to see what he is going to deliver.

    Congrats to DMr. PM!! Job well done! I was so afraid that UWP would have won but then I remembered how we Dominicans function..lol We are an intelligent people and we always make the right decisions in the end!

    all the ones who are talking nonsense about the party in power should stop and think of what the negativity is doing to all of us in Dominica and the shame you bring on our country!

    Let the man and his government run the country and if you have nothing good to say then stay shut.. didn’t your mother ever tell u that?

    RED Power.. all da time!!!!!

    Lord we need you more now than ever!. You have commanded us to pray for our leaders and we need to do so without ceasing right now. This election was bought. We know the Labour Party had the funds to charter planes and bring in people from all over the globe to vote and that was very shameful. Shame on you Mr. Skerrit for using bribes and stooping so low to pay off Dominican to win this election. They came in droves from the planes, to the buses, to the polling stations then back on the plane. Now Skerritt has the power to continue his deceitful reign. The electoral law needs to be changed. We are the laughing stock of the Caribbean! GOD WE NEED YOU NOW MORE THAN EVER!

    If that was the work of God, then God is unjust because this is the begining of more suffering under a power hungry man. What God would allow that?

    I hope that all the folks gathered in Portsmouth tonight will be in a church on Sunday in equally large numbers to thank God for all his many blessings.
    Or is Skerrit your “god” It seems so. Just look at the many persons that is going to respond to my comment , supporting Skerrit.
    Stand up for God. find yourself in a church on Sunday and give your lives to God and not to a man on earth.

    To Mr. “What a Shame” You are so clueless as to the happenings in Dominica. What do you know about certain UWP reps?????. You should have gone to the New York Pubs and Strip Clubs to see what representation looks like. The proof is written on the Boston Road Gentleman’s Club….

    December 18, 2009

    that CNN thing was a hoax.
    Anyway the elections results was not a surprise. Skerro knew what he was doing when he called election. Just wish him all the best and hope that he fullfill many of his promises.

    To all you Labour supporters I say congrats. You stood for development and continued progress. To Prime Minister Skerritt keep up the good work. To all UWP supporters THE PEOPLE HAS SPOKEN. You are free to join the wining train in going forward. Nothing will be gain by being miserable by being bitter and miserable.

    whoever had won that wouldn’t have add nor detracted anything in my life so i don’t care a fingernail. All the Pm’s THAT D/A have had are from my perception illiberal and Dominica have never advance to the position we could have been. Basically We are relatively 50 years behindhand which is a melancholy state of affairs. But anyway congratulations to the D.L.P, by my observation, they had the most proficient aspect, so ‘Godspeed’ to Mr.Roosevelt and this faction.

    Kenny’s career as PM is finished, Lucians r smarter than the majority of us.

  191. What a Shame
    December 18, 2009

    My Dear Lord

    Please bless the people of Dominica. I don’t know what is really going to happen now but I leave it as I leave all other things in your hands. The people of Dominica continue to rely totally on government to help them…. that is why no matter who comes into power, Dominica continues to be a nation that is looked upon as a laughing joke of the caribbean. I pray that Dominica one day is a nation that will be looked upon with respect because as of right now, the people of Anguilla, Antigua, and all the other countries of the Caribbean look at the politics in Dominica as nothing more than a mere joke…… I cannot speak for the other UWP candidates, but Salisbury you have a good man in Mr. Hector John, and as always, your community will continue to shine.
