Leader of the Opposition, Lennox Linton, is expected to table a motion for a vote of No Confidence in Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, when Parliament convenes on October 19.
According to the motion, the Prime Minister is mismanaging the island’s economy.
It states that the mismanagement of the economy is evidenced “by rising unemployment, sharp decline in the performance of agriculture, tourism, manufacturing, construction and service sectors and an increase in the trade deficit and a massive national debt.”
It said because of that, the House of Assembly expresses “its lack of confidence in the leadership of the Prime Minister.”
Presently the House of Assembly in Dominica consists of 32 members: 15 elected members for the Dominica Labour Party and five government senators, six elected members of the Opposition United Workers Party and four opposition senators and one ex officio member, who is the Attorney General.
