The Movement to Restore Democracy (MRD) wants Government to negotiate with the elected members of the United Workers Party (UWP) to find a solution to the problem which exists in Parliament.
Chairman of the MRD Sam Raphael was speaking on the heels of a decision by Parliamentary representative of Roseau Central Norris Prevost to take the Oath of Allegiance at Parliament Thursday morning.
“We think out of everything there is an opportunity. The game is up … its over… this ratcheting up of the Parliament has failed and certainly the Government need to sit at the negotiating table with the Opposition [and] with the President of Dominica to find a solution so that people can adequately represent the people of Dominica and we can move forward,” he said.
Raphael said the issue of boycotting Parliament has taken precedence over the real issues affecting the country.
“The Government then can focus its attention on taking care of the economy, spiraling crime and everything that the people of the country are crying about,” Raphael stated.
According to him, of late, the issue at Parliament seems to be whether the UWP shows up or not.
