“It’s a habit of the Skerrit-led administration to try and bribe people” – Ron Green

UWP Leader Ron Green

Leader of the United Workers Party Ron Green said his party will retain the Salisbury and Marigot seats in the July 9 by-elections.

These two seats are up for grabs following a decision by the member for Marigot Edison James and Salisbury’s Hector John to missed three consecutive sittings of parliament.

Green said both Salisbury and Marigot have been the heart and soul of the UWP for many years and that will never change.

“We will be contesting these two seats and we will win. We have every confidence that people of these constituencies will return the UWP representatives to parliament. I think the people understood the issues of the day. They were the ones who insisted that we protest and maintained that we should do certain things to keep our democracy strong,” he added.

According to Green, the by-elections would be another opportunity for the people of Dominica to establish their support of democracy and “we have a feeling that we will return with both seats”.

Meantime Green says he is concerned about bribery in the July 09 by-elections.

“We have seen this criminal activity in 2005. It’s a habit of the Skerrit-led administrations try and bribe people. The bringing in of housing materials to Salisbury and we have heard rumors that they are trying to recruits voters from overseas.

He said the DLP “just haven’t learnt”.

    “They were the ones who insisted that we protest and maintained that we should do certain things to keep our democracy strong,” he added.”

    Oh oh, it seems this guy put the blame for that whole boycott fiasco squarely on the constituents wee.

    Well I do not have the facts but I would like to find out;
    Did the UWP hold town hall meetings with the people of Salisbury, Marigot, and Roseau asking them what to do and the people voted in favor of boycotting?

  16. June 30, 2010

    Ron i would advise you to take the bribe from us that will do you better because is shame you doe have,your own foolish supporters doe like you and eddie making you look like a j..ck ..ss already you are one

    It seems to me that ANYthing and EVERYthing good that a government does for any community is a potential bribe. Should governments stop all good works before an election?

    Dominica politics is just corrupt and we all know it. Yes the DLP bribes and so did the others. Some just do it more than others. I am yet to see politics in Dominica be fair and just. They need to try rallying without the name calling and bribing just give the facts and play music and stuff and see how that goes for at least one year.

    Then we would see how real politics supposed to be.

    I challenge them to try it for at least one year
