The Political Leader and Executive of the United Workers Party of St. Lucia have congratulated Lennox Linton on his election as Political Leader of the United Workers Party of Dominica.

Linton received the unanimous vote of party members during the UWP’s Delegates Conference held in Castle Bruce on Sunday.

In a release, political leader of the United Workers Party of Saint Lucia, Allen Chastanet, said “We welcome Mr. Linton’s ascension to the helm of the United Workers Party of Dominica, we look forward to holding talks soon on regional issues of mutual interest.”

In late July Chastanet, a former tourism minister, was elected the new leader of the UWP in St. Lucia.

    And whay do we have such an angry society? Everyone seems to be mad at something or someone. How can we develop as a nation when all our energies are going to twards hating and anger? No wonder the ‘other’ are folks are taking over. Think about that for minute people.

    Like seriously? That man did not win his seat in St. Lucia last election!!!!

    To hopefully win his seat next election he hatched up a plot to have King removed as leader of the UWP. But all of us know him well and waiting for him to as usual put his foot in his mouth.

    Moving along , I am posing a challenge to DNO to surf the web for the respectable Regional and International news media sites and tell us which media house gave coverage to LL and UWP Delegates “historic” meeting within the first 24 hours.

    You mean to tell me “Mat” and his sidekick “Kalie” crook LL and doh send noooooooooooo news to Voice of America, CNN I-Report; Caribbean 360 News, and BBC?

    DNO and Sandyford you can hold back my post if you wish but that fact is breaking news !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Why are so many Skerrit supporters are angry with Mr. Linton, they must have some sort of tunnel vision to see that their RED CLINIC is about to end.

      And why sooo many of UWP supporters so angry about Alix Knight being President of Dominica?

      Well if is one good thing that will happen in the State Palace when other heads of state come Da is that they will get a well cooked meal and Miss President will say in her high class English I salved over it myself.

      D lady will cook for Lennox and he will learn some table manners and not speak with food in his mouth :mrgreen:

      Lennox had oui d Mayor for putting drinks in a box but he will not be able to send drinks and eats in Village Independence day celebrations. lol wosh look drama

    This was handed to him on a silver platter, are you kidding me? This is a man who has done everything in his might to destroy another Black man, he has belittled himself in the process. I really do hope that Mr. Linton has at least graduated HS, if not, my advice, fly to the US and take the GED in order to save yourself future embarassment. PM, in the meantime, pray for all those who will stop at nothing to destroy you. Victory will only be yours.

    September 3, 2013

    So what happen to alllllllll the rest?

    By now We should have seen congratulatory remarks coming from the USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Australia, IMF, World Bank, WHO, UWI, CIA, Google, Facebook, CNN, BBC, Cana, Carib360, Caricom, and the OECS.

    Not sooo important on the World stage as yet? hahah

      When man have to rent blue and gold chairs from a hotel and beg foreign dignitaries to their meeting it says people desperate to the highest order.

      Now you beg foreign dignitaries to come to your meeting and position yourself to make people that cannot see light too well think you in those people company and forgetting is you that beg them to come you throwing maypree for those people saying they will not dictate foreign aid conditions to you. But we all know is not them you going and ask for aid is their subjects. How interesting!!!

      @ why wonder. I wish you could prove how popular skeritt was when he made his way to Prime Ministership after the death of Pierrro or more so when he entered the political arena. All of a sudden some all you ignorant laborites want to make us think that he is the only one capable of leading the country. Get real man. Let’s see if DNO publishing this one.

    • September 4, 2013

      How little do you know they are not stupid as you and the DLP thinks they are looking to see where D’icans go with the changes they are crying out for also the men/women at the top of the political parties in these countries behave much more as pressional .

    why you personally dislike skerrit so?

      Because of that, Go to hell, none of your damn business speech :-D

    • September 4, 2013

      No one dislike the man personally what we dislike and refuse to accept is the contempt he have for the people of D’ica, so I would suggest you come back with something much better than that.

    It is unfortunate that Skerrit with all his University Education was not tactful , in terms of the characteristics of diplomacy. He did not have the courtesy to call or write Mr. Linton in order to congratulate him. Earlier in the week, he made many comments as regards Mr. Linton’s nomination, so why didn’t he leave his personal dislikes of Mr. Linton at home and instead use the office of the Prime Minister. Wasn’t it the same Skerrit who once offered an Olive Branch to members of the opposition and requested they should stop the politics of hate, but again the man is famous for flip flopping.

      September 3, 2013

      Do you know that we as a party has never congratulated the DLP for winninf the 2000 Election, 2005 and 2009 elections and that we as a party didn’t participate in many things Dominican.

      Do you know that Lennox is using the political passage way as a means to get back at Skerrit.

      I have aligned to the UWP but I am seating this one out. I am not confortable with lennox, I see too much bitternes and hatred in this man.

      • September 3, 2013

        You see the hate and bitterness in Linton, but you are already feeling the pain and hardship from Skerrit
        The question for you is, Do you wanna take a chance with Lintons hate and bitterness,and hope Things get better or to continue taking the pain and hardship??, Just think alittle bit about it

        Ps, I would lean towards the side of hope :-D
        Give him a chance, if he isn’t performing, then we vote him out, very simple, nothing personal :-D

      Congratulate CO-CO Mackaque?Lennox was hand picked by Edison and was not elected.Skerrit will use his tactful characteristics of diplomacy when he wants to.Who are you to tell him when he should.Bet if he had,you would be the first to cry..HYPOCRITE!..that’s one area of his diplomacy for not doing so.

      • September 3, 2013

        Thank you very much for your contribution, we have learned alot, very smart :-D

      Why does Mr Skerrit have to congratulate Lennox Linton, he is NOT an elected member of Parliament? This is an internal party issue nothing to do with DLP and Government. If he was an elected member of the house and nominated Opposition Leader then you congratulate him as it would be an office of the official parliament. Lennox is not yet even a candidate in a General Elections so he is only an appointee of the UWP internal party organ. I say welcome to the arena.
