Esprit said he was selected to contest the Salisbury constituency

Nicholls ‘Shanks’ Esprit has been selected contest the Salisbury constituency for the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) in the upcoming general election.

In a Facebook page that was activated on Saturday, Esprit stated that he was ‘extremely honored’ to be selected by the party.

“I am extremely honored to have been selected as the candidate …” he said. “I am tremendously grateful to the villagers whose trust has afforded me the opportunity to be voted parliamentary representative, and make the daily life of every constituent better. The road to archiving this historical feat will be long and hard, but I’m confident we can be victorious.”

Esprit said the constituency requires a lot of improvement.

“I will direct the attention of the government to the needs of our communities. In the coming months, I will articulate my plans for the constituency,” he said.

He noted that he appreciates the support given since the launch of his Facebook page.

“I’m truly appreciative of the support gathering behind my candidacy. This goes to show that the people are crying out for effective representation, which I intend on providing,” he stated.

He said he looks forward to “bringing home the Salisbury Constituency to the Dominica Labour Party.”

The constituency consists of Salisbury, Coulibistrie and Morne Rachette.

Esprit will be facing opposition leader, Hector John, at the polls.

Efforts to contact John for a comment were unsuccessful.

The DLP’s hierarchy has not yet commented on the matter.

    People, open your eyes

    Come on DNO, did the administrator put this post up so all these people could come in here and post all these insults? you can tell it’s strictly UWP haters who as usual are spewing hate.. This is one of the most biased article i have ever read on DNO and its applauding to say the least. All the folks talking nonsense ask them what has Hector John done for Salisbury and its environs? All day he is on FB posting non sense, making all kinds of accusations and posting clips from news about the DLP.. Has he represented the people who put him in power? what changes have the people seen since he was voted in? you people should be ashamed…

  6. June 4, 2014

    Greetings my people ;By reading Shank’s statement one could see that he has definitely condemned and disqualified himself and theLabour party government. What he is actually saying is if nothing has been done to develop the constituency it’s the fault of the government in power, cause they are the ones responsible for and controls the finances. So thiere is definitely no good reason to vote for him and the labour party. VOTE THEM OUT!

    Its a good thing you left the UWP, since you left it, it has rebounded. There are less weeds on board now so now the party will grow.

    I see nothing wrong in Shanks being the candidate for Salisbury. UWP sent him to Cuba to study so what? Now he has to look for himself again. He got duty free under Labour. So what? Now its time to build your house . I hope that’s on your agenda.

      Shanks only spend one month in Cuba. Ask him how many classes he attended.
      He is weak and faint hearted to handle Cuba, then why should I give him the mandate to represent my constituency?

      Shanks only here to represent himself and not the interest on the constituents nor the values and principles of the DLP.

      Nobody getting my vote this time around and I will do everything in my power to ensure that many more stay away from the polls this election.

      We need real representation.

      we need to stop using words without knowing what it means. voting for a party only because u think they can give u something is not patriotic. voting if the greatest fundamental right any citizen cant obtain. voting for the person u think can do the greatest job even if they may be the ones that lose is. that’s what true freedom is about. voting your conscience not the pocket book. don’t confuse voting for someone because you think they can give u or ur village something to voting our conscience.

    as I see it being DLP and jumping to UWP is always a good move, but being blue and jumping to red is wrong ,is money you want, you mad you are called all can of names, you are place on a hit list, I no this young man, and I no how the UWP treated him ,how they push him aside ,how they roll him around and make fun of him tape him and gave it to mart to air, as I see it they were not his friend or his family and he have a right to move out and move on. and by the way as I see it they would not make him part of their team dominica, as I can see hector is not part of team dominica, just take a close look at who make up team dominica, that.s how I see it

    • June 3, 2014

      just in case you don’t understand TEAM DOMINICA UWP is the new name for that party and it includes all the members it’s not separate division of team as you want to believe if you read as you are suppose to you will find lots of parties as well as companies change their names or add of change part of previous names or titles .
      Don’t tell me all the free classes that Angelo dishes out on Q95 you have not learn much I would suggest you allow your common sense to work for you.
      Hector John is very much part of TEAM DOMINICA UWP as well as all the other partners, others may believe that they rather work in their Villages instead of being on the air and that’s good for them, so because all of them are not on the air they are not part of TEAM DOINICA UWP you a so behind and may be it’s time you should admit that you a not supporting the DLP that you knew . because these guys have some really good plans and visions for DOMINICA and DOMINICAMS like for you and your family.

Well shanks if the cheap suv you are now driving is not enough I can promise you that you won’t be driving a lexus. We are fed up with this corrupt Government and they must go.

    Yes sir . Can you answer to that nah.?
    After the failed Labour Party Rally in St Joseph, (in which Monnel was VICIOUSLY insulted by Austrie), Skerrit was driven to China LIKE A “NOM FOO” in search of an International airport (which has always been high on the agenda of Team Dominica) WHICH HE WOULD RETURN TO ISLAND WITH in his back pocket… I understod that he has returned home SIR , but it ( the airport) was not in his back pocket? What happened sir?
    Which area is he planning to clear and bulldoze to tell his FOOLS and GULLIBLES that work has started on the construction of the international airport? IS IT GRANDE SAVANNE SIR?
    I don’t want to be as arrogant as Skerrit to tell you that you will lose your deposit, but i know Spaggs can send blows. SO WELCIOME.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    In politics i like truth. Example i love Lennox Linton for his truthfulness. In politics i love people who are strong advocates for women. For example Lennox Linton. In politics i also love people with a vision. Example Lennox Linton. I admire brilliant minds. Example Lennox Linton. I also love people who can stand up to Skerrit and make him get diarrhoea. Example Lennox Linton.
    Never knew that Skerrit was so darn weak before Linto got into the ring upon his (Skerrit’s) invitation.

    It is a shame that after 15 years your party in power and you are proud to say that the constituency requires a lot of improvement. Why is that so…Wasn’t Bentley Royer, though lost to hector John, was the representative of a government in power?

      ridiculous. Why ask bout Bently Royer and not the “Elected Member” for Bawi…..eh when we needed representation he follow Edison them and stay out of the house….Living on Facebook is not effective representation. Following Lennox around Dominica is not representation. Retired speaker of the house Neva Edwards said it best “They are making a grave mistake by not going to the house” this was a dno article…….. Will Shanks win? that remains to be seen but when you comming come correct bawi people not stupid we are educated……Now I firmly expect a tounge lashing for this statement but I will not be silenced bring it on……..

        It is the same Shanks while he was a UWP senator asked tge PM a question that tge Speaker refused 4o allow Skerrit to answer the question. The opposition stayed out of the House because the Speaker among other insults were preventing them from asking questions pertaining to the governance of our country. The oppotion boycott has long been over and since then they have repeated many of their request for aid in their respective constituencies and all request have fallen on deaf ears. Shanks can see the neglect of the feeder roads in bawi and marigot, Shanks have heard the countless times Spags and Edison made representation in the House on the behalf of the farmers in their constituencies. Shanks knows first hand the difficulty experienced by the opposition in the House. UWP HAS BEEN PURGED, THANKS TO THE MOST HIGH WHO HAVE PURGED UWP FROM CROOKS AND CRIMINALS. BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER. SHANKS HAS FINALLY FOUND HIS HOME.

    Mr Espirit….I feel for you as you are about to be of a dirty Labour Party which has faced numerous challenges and allegations of massive corruption and abusing it`s powers to the point of creating a red clinic and the abuse of poor women and families. I am referring to the handouts using government , tax payers money for political ends,
    This party has not won on its merit and this government and its leadership has a very poor reputation in the eyes of us Dominicans. I feel for you being part of this corrupt government and there is nothing you can do about it.

      I understand you brother. I too supported Skerrit in 2005 and though badly let down could never vote for Edison James but under Lennox Linton that is a different party altogether so I will take my chance with them. If you don’t want to vote Team Dominica yourself that is fine but if you care for your labour party, the true labour party, don’t vote Shanks because he is only a sycophant of Skerrit.

    Does Shanks have a University Degree like Mr. Hector John. I need Dr. Philbert Aaron, pro of the DLP to answer.

      Doc. does Philbert Aaron have a Ph. D.? last time that was challenged by Angelo on radio we never got a response. We know he got a Bachelors from a university in Togo but a doctorate? Let me see that paper and let me know what thesis he wrote for that? For one thing, that would have to be in French. He is supposed to have a Bachelors in French but is that good enough to publish a learned piece of paper in that language?

        LYO Rep., yes I know a claim is made that he has a P.D. from University Maryland College Park.
        – It does not say in what subject or even on what thesis, or the was awarded that PH.D.

        I challenge him or anyone to provide the relevant evidence and I will apologise for doubting him.

    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: ……………….Skerrit had better keep his eyes on you.

    After all, chaps like Skerrit ought to be nervous about persons who have the tendency to shift their allegiances publicly.

    Anyways, when is the elections so we can vote for Workers nuh? What Roosevelt waiting for again?

    Salisbury will definitely move forward when Shanks wins the seat am sorry team Dominica but Hector has done nothing in his 5 years. He have been elected.

      @Salisbury Youth

      Hello he is a member of the opposition, are you daff

      It the Sketrit administration, the DLP controlling everything on the island and as we all know presently one have to be supporting Skerrit and the DLP in order to receive, job, food, free money etc. Do not blame Mr John blame your DLP for ignoring your village

      A member of my family applied for a lot, she did not receive any reply from housing, she when to Austrie’s office, only to hear it straight from Austrie’s mouth that no one affiliate to the UWP will not get land or anything from his government, tell me how do you call that, in this day and age, and to you youth, all I have to say is, time will tell

        @ Anon hold there how can you be represented when the man you send to represent you never went to the house to stake his claim? one of the projects the Government gave to you all Spaggs was absent even if your party not in control you still have a say he let them crook him but don’t worry the biggest crooking coming for him stay tuned.

      Sorry young one the question you should ask and answer What has skeritt done for Salisbury in 14 years if you can give one i’ll join DLP

    It’s a waste of time. To me for DLP to send Shanks or nobody to contest the BAWI constituency is same leaving that constituency uncontested. It is going to be the first of 13 seats UWP winning according to the DLP secret pole result they don’t want to put out. I know they gave Skerrit 8 seats, but don’t be surprised to hear that amount drops down to 4 seats come election day, because there are many persons that singing and dancing the DLP song but voting UWP in secret.

      Congrats Shanks!!!

      That’s the best move ever. You are the most suitable candidate for our constituency. We are rallying all the way with you Shanks and the DLP.

      • June 3, 2014

        @salisbury Youth, swing high swing low, this present administration have to go, under this Skerrit admin, and in all my 56 years as a Dominican, this is the lowest of the lower that I have ever seen of my country

        I do hope that you are not one of the begging youth on the island, these young freedom members who converted to labour are setting up themselves, they are all in the seven figure dollars, exploiting, disrespecting, abusing, selling the island under your nose ect, this shanks want his share of the pie too, this is his only reason why he join that corrupt administration, wondering if he did not reflect himself about the many, many things that he shanks said and even resenty told me about Skerrit, shanks my friend this is a move for yourself, not for the people of Salisbury and the betterment of the island

    Congratulations and Good Move my Brother. I k now you are a good man who cares about the people from the Salisbury constituency and Dominica in general.
    You were with the UWP and you were treated badly and you could be be of any worth to you ppl if you were still in UWP. UWP doesnt like young people. They don’t want to see young excel. Whilst you were a member of parliament there were two other young senators with you and see how UWP treated you all. I see you bringing Victory to the DLP and the people in the Constituency who are all calling for change of representation.

    What does this fella really want, nuh? Today, he’s here; tomorrow, he’s over there! What is his cause? There seem to be just too many young men who believe that simply because they are loud-mouthed on political issues, they should pontificate for representative office. One can often hear these Chalatans speak about elections in 1995, 2000, 2005, 2009 and why things turned out the way theye did. Shanks is one of those guys who gives the impression that he has an answer for all life’s challenges. Just stand close to him for a minute or two and you will agree he is filled with political commentary and a “bag of ” about anything with is not Skerrit. On leadership, sadly, he is extremely wanting. Poor boy! Shanks has been waiting to be noticed and it seems his big chance has finally come. But again, if the Rot can be a Minister, who can’t!
