IN PICTURES: Voting underway in Soufriere Constituency

 

20160607_105829

Despite rain in some parts of the Soufriere Constituency, voting is presently underway for a new Parliamentary Representative.

Voting has been slow in some parts of the constituency.

A by-election became necessary in that constituency after the resignation of former Labour Party MP, Ian Pinard, on April 26, 2016, because of allegations of inappropriate behavior involving a minor.

DNO moved across the constituency and took pictures in Scotts head, Soufriere and Pointe Michel.

The candidates, Denise Charles of the Dominica Labour Party and Higgs Adams of the United Workers Party, were not seen in any of the areas visited by DNO.

    Shame how my country of birth is being treated as per say in the next twenty years Dominica will still remain a ghetto. There is little improvement or little or not……

    What a biased article I also recall that someone else was also accused of the same type of behavior and to this day they have neither resigned nor acknowledged their mistake.Maybe when they do, we will have another by election and we will all be able to cast the first stone!
