Dominica will have a new president on Monday and it appears Charles Savarin will be the one in that post.
Prime minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, confirmed on Thursday morning that Savarin had resigned as minister of national security.
He also said that Savarin is the next government’s nominee for president of Dominica and elections will take place on Monday, September 30 in parliament.
“We expect the inauguration of the next president to take place on the 1st of October, 2013,” the prime minister said on state-owned DBS Radio on Thursday morning.
Skerrit also said Jennifer Wallace Lafond, his previous nominee, withdrew because of “personal challenges.”
“Unfortunately she could not proceed forward,” he said without elaborating.
