Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has called on his ministers of government and parliamentary representatives not to abandon their constituents.
“I say to them that they cannot not answer the phone when you call. They must make time for you because you are the ones who have placed your trust and confidence in us and you must always show gratitude and support and recognition for them,” he said at the Dominica Labour Party’s Red Day event at Macoucherie on Sunday.
The prime minister also told parliamentary representatives, “We must never abandon the people who have placed us here to represent them. I say to my parl reps that they have to make themselves available to you at all times to represent your interests.”
He promised that the government would also not abandon single mothers, the elderly and less fortunate in the coming years.
“There are many single mothers who have been abandoned by their boyfriends and their childrens’ fathers. We have to look out for these people,” he said.
