General election close but date still a secret

Voters during the 2009 general election

Prime minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has hinted that general election is close but he is not quite ready to reveal the exact date, as yet.

Speaking on the radio program, “Focus on Government and Development” on Thursday night, Skerrit said that although the election is due soon, his adminstration needs to see some projects completed before the date is announced.

“Elections will be called when it is constitutionally due,” he said. “I have said to the people of Dominica that they should stand ready to go to the polls at any time. Once you past four years it could be called at any time.”

He continued, “We have about eight more months before election is due but there are still some things that we have to do as a party and as a government. There are a number of projects and programs that we have to bring to a completion. There are some projects that we have started to implement that we have to see blossom and so on.”

The country’s leader mentioned projects such as the Roseau Enhancement Project (REP), the Indoor Sporting Facility in Stockfarm, the Melville Hall to Pond Case road as some of the projects that he would like to see completed.

However, the prime minister noted, the Dominica Labour Party has been told to prepare itself for the day the polling date is announced.

“There are a number of things that we have to still do but I have told my party to ready itself and they are preparing for election,” he said. “So elections are due in the next eight months … we are very confident and the party is preparing itself and keep your eyes on me.”

The next general election is constitutionally due in March 2015.

    Ko-ki-yo-ko!!!

    You see what happens when you allow your Prime Minister to become “Power hungry” and turns “DICTATOR.” It’s sad that there so many who just doesn’t get it. People wake-up and see where the country is heading. If you vote the current regime back in office, then you deserve whatever follows.

    De PM and DLP lacking confidence.
    You waiting for 3 projects to complete to prove that you working. Shameless
    De news story on Caribbeannewsnow is empty.
    Without elaborating you couldn’t even boast off the Moroccan hotel, geothermal energy, night landing, de pond case to Melville hall road, the Rosalie to petite soufriere road, the new coast guard base in the north, where is the boat to ship farmers produce,……….I could go on and on.
    Get some real media person to put your message out for the world to see. That news story was not very insightful. Very lacking. Unconvincing.
    Go back to the drawing board.
    You really not ready for election.
    After 15 years of governance you guys are weak, spineless and shameless.

    Skerrit you remind me of The crooked man, who wore a crooked smile, and walked a crooked mile,
    and found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile;
    then bought a crooked cat (tony) which caught a crooked mouse (hartley), which ate some crooked cheeses (lawrence, AA, Charlo, Alix, Jung etc ).
    And who all went to live together in an oversized crooked cabinet.
    Skerrit I love but you too dan rotten crooked; I cannot in good conscience vote for you.

    Im in the process of publishing a book and was wondering about a title. Neo-DLP Mud, A taste of corruption/honey comes to mind.
    There fore am soliciting ideas from the compartiots of a suitable title. It basically envelopes a chronological history in the form of comic presentations of all the silly things we as a people have permitted to occur in DAej voting the UWP in 1995, to allowing an idiot to slip through the cracks and become PM to holding certain professional, god fearing hypocrites to dictate our lives. etc
    It ends with the need for deep cleaning like in dentistry ( our polarized dentist both in Roseau and Washington D.C would appreciate or disagree. We may need Blacklight or luminol to show p the dirt and hidden evidence ej blood stainsej in criminal acts economic and political and the need to sanitize Neo -DLP once and for all. Can the cosmetically changed Team DA bring this about? Question the book will explore and give answers.

    I will ask again. Why should election be a secret? Only in Dominica. I have never seen anything like this before. The country must know when election is so the people can prepare and the opposition can be prepare., just nonsense happening in de place. PM think Dominica really belongs to him. Just madness going on in DA. God please!…………….. show your hands. Our Country needs a cleansing.

    After 14 years you have accomplished nothing, so this is why the election date is such a secret.
    Skerro, you would be happy if you had the authority to tell only your loyal supporters when the dates will be and have them only go to the poles EH!!?
    Dominica has had enough of your incompetence, it is time to go!

    Skerro and those most of the men in DLP have never served as an opposition MP. I am sure if they lost the next election most of them will run away because they do not love Dominica.
    Well again they have enough money put aside for the future while the common man is biting his finger nails to survive.
    So how can a normal thinking Da person vote for those guys again!! ?

    While all over the world citizens are fighting, advocating for Free and Fair elections, Skerritt’s DLP Gov’t is bent on, stubborn not to want Electoral Reforms to ensure fraud and irregularities are not committed.

    Who recommended and requested funds from Gov’t to carry out Electoral Reforms, i.e., to produce Voter ID Cards and to clean up the bloated Voters’ List? The “Independent” Electoral Commission, right?

    Years passed. No money for Commission to do its work. No response. Commission belittled.

    OAS, CARICOM, observers in the last elections also recommended reforms. The Dominican people have been pleading, expressing concerns, but no Reforms.

    The “Independent” Electoral Commission was forced, against its expressed wishes to produce NID Cards, counter to what the Commission wanted. Well where are the NID Cards for elections? Who mis-informed the public that NID cards would be ready?

    Dominicans are forced to go into another general election without electoral reforms. will Elections be ever FREE and FAIR?

    Why would any GOVT be afraid to implement or facilitate reforms to make our elections better, FREE and FAIR?

    Already the election process has been flawed, tampered with. Cheat, steal election? No Reforms? In our face?

    Heavy political influences have rendered the “Independent” Commission helpless. Elections cannot be FREE and FAIR.

    The Cabal cannot afford to loose. We know why. So by any means possible, they will try to be in power.,

    One man has an entire nation hostage as relates a date for elections.? Expect anything. Be on your P’s and Q’s.

    Election is constitutionally due by March 2015. Subject to correction, Parliament has to be dissolved 90 days before the election. This ultimately means that by January 2015 DA people must know when is the polling date!!

    If the Prime Minister gave any importance to the rights of the electorate to vote, he would avoid continuously speaking about the date if not to announce it.
    Once again, he is openly using the privilege as a tool to tease and taunt…Imagine if he also had the prerogative of announcing Christmas, carnival and other calender events…Dominicans remain at the mercy of their master.

    Skerrit is a dictator the date of all general elections should be written in the Dominican constitution and made law. He wants to make it hard for people to vote especially the people he knows will vote against him the people should start mass protests.

    So we go to the polls sometime within the next eight months.

    To all who think dead and ineligible people are getting ready (no pun intended) to vote, get ready also to monitor each polling station for proof of any such occurences. We should not make allegations without having the required proof. It is as unethical to allege unproven fraud in the elections as it is for persons, who are ineligible, to vote.

    So you think someone is voting twice? bring this to the attention of the appropriate authorities at that time and not on a radio talk show two days later.

    Let us all be responsible and practice legal forms of elections policing.

    Now Skerro doh want to give an election date. He said he want to finish some projects lol! So if bro Medard so certain he going to win all 21 why the secrete concerning the date? You call the dog on election and continue ur projects after you win si say l’homme ou l’homme!

    Roosie, boy you and I attended elementary and high school together, we grew up as good friends and have remained friends. In the last 14 years I voted for you not on the basis of your ability, but rather, on basis of our friendship. However, of late I have been debating within myself if I am fair to myself and my country to vote for you a forth time simply because we are friends. As the election date is drawing nearer you seem to have been making my decision really easy with statements you have been making of late. Here are some disturbing examples: Your attack on Dr. . Eipigh really got my attention. Make it worse, Furthermore when you referred to UWP as dishonest, bunch of modern day pirates who have no interest in Dominica, was very unfair because I do have lots of UWP friends. If that was not bad enough, this week alone you sounded tired with your mouth. You called Lennox “bastard” and I was very offended because though we are friends, I know better. Two days ago you sounded off on the economy at Castle Bruce and you really sounded like a nuisance when you revealed that you intended to hire 400 persons under the NEP, but you went on to hire 1001. How idiotic was this one! Then to hear you say today that you will not debate Lenox and gave some silly reasons, is really not Vieille -case like because everybody knows how we like to feast on those we are better / stronger than. If that was not enough, to hear you say that election is close but you and your party are not ready (literally that’s what you said) and you needed to complete some projects first was nothing but a flat out insult! Afetr 14 years, with an 18/3 majority, you are not ready to challenge a bastard, uneducated, one that has not read any good book about DA? Man you embarrassing the intelligence of persons like myself who have voted you and continue to vote you. Sorry, I can’t do this again

    Wouldn’t it have been a beautiful occasion had Skeritt asked Mr. Linton to joint him in the studios of the Nation Station when he was being interviewed by Cecil, Kamala and Curtis. They fraid, they really fraid, therefore, they rather put their hands between their legs and hide in the studios of DBS radio,cowards. They all talk about how powerful and tough they are when interviewing politicians, I cannot believe how Cecil and Kamala in particular, could allow such a great opportunity like that to pass them by like a bwen nas.

    With his own mouth Skerrit is indirectly telling the nation that based on performance his DLP does not deserve another 5 year term in office and he personally would not reelect a government that has failed as badly as his government has failed. Let’s take a close look at what he said on DBS and you tell me if it is a vote of confidence or not: ““We have about eight more months before election is due but there are still some things that we have to do as a party and as a government.” In other words, Skerrit is saying that he and his government have not done enough and therefore they are not ready. After all, this is not their first term in office. They have been there for 15 years and they are not ready? In case we did not understand what he meant, he went on to add this: “There are some projects that we have started to implement that we have to see blossom and so on.” and he went on to mention the Roseau Enhancement Project (REP), the Indoor Sporting Facility in Stockfarm, the Melville Hall to Pond Case road as some of the projects that he would like to see completed.
    The man knows he and his cabal team have failed the people for 14 years, and he feels the only thing that might blindfold people to maybe give them another chance is 3 projects and they must blossom first. If I were a laborite and heard this statement I would say, if after 14 years you still cannot prove yourself, it’s time for change.

      Well, he’s repeated history. Remember Mamo & Bandits outsted PJ in 05/1979 with who………………………. as chief engineer? Mamo & her Bandits spent 15 yrs in Power . Mamo retired & left the leadership in crisis and the Moomoo & di Ayatolla made a mess of Mamo’s party then came the solid Team with the Medicine man, Ugg et Al which culminated with making DA a circus with guys like INSTRU( now a fugitive) We had his suggestion of a smoke herring breakfast for their first independence celebration as the Gov’t of DA Eddo gave us a mining scare amongst other comical undertakings. Dodo as minister of Health Lol!
      Where are these two characters today? When I think of these two in particular I think of 1994 OJ Simpson ‘s case. With all the top lawyers in that case like the TV shows always ask where are they now? They were the most popular things on TV in 94.
      Changing the line, we got a series of mishaps after the Solid team was ousted by Rosie and his Bandits. Then like they did in Grenada in 1983( when Mamo became instrumental after the big catastrophy.) There was an internal coup in the Authentic DLP’s camp. When a little unknown substitute teacher who like intru have difficulties with the English languge from V.C a creole strong hold who deos not speak creole either, who has a French passport and does not speak French either” twit” with only a facial malformation” with dimples” was nominated placed as a figure head for the DFP machine. The tides became choppier as the little unknown twit had plans of his own, resulting in what he has become to us relative to him. remember he fooled many as he had his own plans helped by his sidekicks. so here we are once again with 15 yrs of DFP rule posing as DLP.
      There is no solution for Da at this time as the cosmetically enhanced Solid Team to Team DA don’t cut it in the minds of many. The country like so many is in limbo with decreased production in Agriculture, investments are at a standstill and all time low. unemployment god alone knows how much, Corruption has put us to compete with Latin American and other banana republics despite our banana production today does not qualify s not even to be classified as one lol! LL for P.M lol! LMAO! With such a fracase as the Gov’t of RS’s neo DLP people want change but it’s only a wish. Those who can bring change have migrated, accepting of the corruption became part of it or are to unstable economically to sacrifice anything.
      It clear to all and sundry the Neo DLP should be outsted as it’s another 15 yr anniversary and tried and sentenced for crimes against state assests confiscated etc. But that having been said who’s gonna replace them and take DA to where she belong. This is the dilemma and a necessity for independent minded D/cans to step up /out and do the right thing. Our youth ought to be more aware today with all these communication tools for information but are carefree and locked in Sewo gear,sewoing their lives away when they wake up it will be retirement time for them.
      party politics aside this is the sad truth. Foreigners are buying us out. look at the real estate list on DNO all st. Aroma homes sold .Sold to whom? check the gazette.
      Don’t blame it on Eddo, LL, Skerro, the Sr. Counsels the cucumbers the ( Gobbles and wife or are they Hilary & Bill lol they wish) the ex-priest who has become a drone specialist and all the other by-products of poverty now millionaires. We are responsible if we have to do it physically it has to be done ,that’s the only way bigger better different from 05/79.

      My sentiments exactly!!In fact I was just about to post my sentiments but after reading your post I decided against it, my thoughts and yours were too similar.

      The only other inference I made which you did not mention was that the Prime Minister essentially stated in a round about manner that the projects that he is waiting on were designed to secure him votes, otherwise why would he have to wait for the projects to not only be completed but to blossom before elections are called? So there you have it, all the activity taking place in the Kalingo territory and Castle Bruce which were not mentioned are Gimmicks designed to buy votes from the electorate. People Wake up!!!!
      Change is not an Option any more, let us continue our assertive but non-aggressive formula, because obviously, it has Mr PM shaking & Trembling in his boots because he hears, sees and believes UWP is coming.

      He also seems to have given up, see he has handed the Wesley, Palm Tree and Woodfordhill constituency to The UWP’s Mr Bazil, by disrespecting that constituency and essentially renaming it NANNYVILLE by having an expelled elementary school student, a trained Nanny as his representative for that constituency. Thanks to you Mr PM, I am now from NANNYVILLE!!!

    Oh my Mr.Pm you think there is no one higher than you,The people in Dominica should demand the date of election should be always on the books and not in the PM back pocket or telling his American baby boy.But some Dominican are just Dom_In_Can and they just dnt get it.For the smart ones that’s left in Dominica keep fighting for your people.Praying for my roots.

    The people of Dominica have made up their minds to vote you out. Anything that is done now is considered catch a vote. The 100’s of thousand dollars spent on advisers are just payments to steel the election, but the voters are ready.

    Wonder if Dominica will vote with their God given brains or with their Feet, they are so backward and can be fooled easily By this present Prime Minister, it’s left to be seen,

    If i had to bet 1 million i would decline fully when it comes to Dominicans, they just can’t be trusted period!!

    They are known for plenty radio chatter but nothing in the summary to show results..

    Very FOOLISH ISLAND is Dominica!!

    Since Universal Adult Suffrage in 1952 we have had Chief Ministers, Premiers, and Prime Ministers all of them had the same privilege as Roosevelt Skerrit in calling general elections but none of them played the type of game that this Boy with a Toy is playing with the Dominican people.
    Who in the Labour Party has the testicular fortitude to tell Roosevelt stop playing games with the date of elections like a little boy?
    I’m pissed with that nonsense, imagine his own Ministers went to the meeting in Lagon expecting him to call elections.
    I’m in total agreement for a fixed election date, it was o.k. until this boy came on board and playing with a whole nation.

      Edison James caused his ministers to lose 6 months salary because he called election early.FOR YOUR INFO, ELECTIONS WHICH ARE CALLED BEFORE THEY ARE DUE, IS A WAY OUT FOR INCOMPETENT GOVERNMENTS. ROOSEVELT SKERRIT HAS WORK TO DO AND HE HAS MONEY TO RUN THE COUNTRY. LEAVE HIM ALONE

      Be careful what you request. UWPwee does not have agood track record for success when it gets what it has asked for. Remember how Eddie and Ron begged SKerrit in 2009 to “call it” and after he did they simply became more vex?

      WORKERS, be on the alert.
      Skerrit tired form the fool. He needs to explain to the tax payers of Dominica what he paying the woman in St. Thomas for. What is her job description. who does she report to.

    why should the date for elections be decided by a prime minister ?
    shouldnt it be a fixed date as is the case with the other major countries ?

    but hey thats not my business…

    • Jay
      September 19, 2014

      You have every right to question that. However, under the constitution the sitting Prime Minister does enjoy the privilege of choosing the date for an election. For that to change the law would have to be amended accordingly, something the opposition has committed itself to should they win the forthcoming electoral contest.

      • Lapo Layza
        September 20, 2014

        This is as a result of the constitutional arrangement that most if not all the former British colonies in the Caribbean were handed by Her Majesty’s Government in London. These arrangements were agreed to by both the party in power at the time as well as the then opposition parties of the day. If I am not mistaken the same system may apply to Canada, Australia, NewZeland and India. Somebody please correct me if I’m wrong. At 60 years old and counting you tend to forget things from time to time

      If she gave November 12th as the date, it must be right from the horses’s mouth. I think she spoke out of turn and may incur the wrath of her boss, Skerrit. Think about it.
