Leader of the opposition United Workers Party (UWP) Lennox Linton, has told party supporters that they need to stay tuned for they will “soon be receiving calls for action.”
Addressing a crowd of party faithful in La Plaine on Saturday November 29, 2014 to officially present its candidate Ron Green he said that the actions of the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) are provocative.
“You noticed how they are provoking us; you notice how we are showing restraint. You notice how they are using law enforcement now in Dominica to protect our brothers and sisters who are being brought in from overseas to vote illegally and to commit crimes in Dominica because bribery is a crime under the House of Assembly Elections Act,” Linton said.
He accused the police of protecting those he claims are breaking the Election laws.
“Now, we have rather than the police authorities intervene to prevent the bribery, they are protecting those who are accepting thee bribes and coming in to vote is criminal misconduct in the Commonwealth of Dominica. We are being provoked. But we will show restraint…we will through this, we will get through this. We are going to be watching very closely and we will be insisting in large numbers that right is done by Dominica,” he stated
He continued, “So, keep your eyes open, when your brothers and sisters come home, you talk to them. When your neighbours you know, they come take Skerrit money to vote for Skerrit against you, talk to them you have a few days they could still do the right thing.”
“We are not taking our eyes off that prize and we are not losing track of our responsibility to protect our democracy regardless of what the Electoral Commission and the police does or does not do. We, the people of Dominica, will get the job done because the power in people is greater than the people in power. So fear no more. Stay tuned for notification, stay tuned for advisory, stay tuned for our calls to action because those calls to action will be coming in the next couple of days,” Linton stated to cheering party supporters.
