Elected Parliamentary Representative for Salisbury Hector John is justifying reasons for a protest action tomorrow to be staged by the members of the Movement to Restore Democracy and the United Workers Party.
The “peaceful picket” to take place near the venue for the 21st Intersessional Meeting of the Conference of CARICOM Heads of Government carded for the Fort Young Hotel.
John told a press conference this morning at the Prevo Cinemall building it is important that CARICOM understands that this is not only being done for Dominica, but for the entire Caribbean.
“We can lose our democracy in the region if we don’t take the matter of electoral reform to the fore,” he said.
According to John, the electoral reform process is very serious and it should be on CARICOM’s agenda.
“We also have on island the secretary general of the OAS and the observers told us that elections were free and fair. The Election Day was free and fair but the process wasn’t fair,” he added.
