    Linton should use the time to actively participate in parliament built positive relationships and get his masters in political science and economics before he runs again.

    Mr. Linton should expect that he just entered politics , he should be in the House to learn the rules of the House before expecting to be Prime Minister , now he has won his seat, I’m expecting that he gives effected representation and do not oppose for just opposing sake. We need an effective Leader of the Opposition, we do not want no People’s Parliament outside of Parliament, We want all the issues to be discussed in the House.

      How are you going to have effective representation when the speaker is clearly a labour supporter and is BIAS. get real.

    It’s like the super bowl of the political campaign. The only thing is both sides do not play by the same rules. Reports of irregularities, and other shenanigans will surely surface at the end, and maybe court proceeding may follow to settle the score. However, I have faith in the man on the right versus the other. Good luck Lennox Linton. The Almighty shall not let you down.

    Hey DNO, that’s an error. Mr Linton voted at the Goodwill Primary School today. That’s Roseau North, not Marigot.

    Change is a must time to pack up and go and relax with the family. take a cruise belated honeymoon , but we promise if the new administration didn’t work we will put them out but we need to give Team Dominica UWP a chance, we want to develop our lovely DOMINICA and to allow our people to be able to feel free and have a wonderful Christmas with friends and families.

    God bless Dominica.

    Isn’t there a residency requirement for registration in a polling district/constituency? Not sure of the election law on this one!

      As long as your name appear on the voters list you can vote. So my friends who flew down from Boston, USA was gone for over ten years. So i saw first hand on the diaspora influence.
