The United Workers Party (UWP) has described its general election manifesto as a “social contract with the people of Dominica.”
UWP’s Political leader Lennox Linton made the remarks at a UWP rally recently.
“The people’s document, the social contract with the people of Dominica for jobs, for justice, for equal rights, for protection of our children, for first class elderly care, this contract-the people’s contact, a contract with the people to make Dominica the best place to live, the best place to enjoy life,” Linton said in describing the manifesto.
The UWP has been heavily criticized by the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) for not being able to produce a manifesto in the run up to the December 8 general election. Leader of the DLP, prime minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, had said his party was the only one that had been able to produce a manifesto just days after the date the election was announced.
But Linton said the UWP will be launching its manifesto at the Lindo Park on November 26.
According to him, every aspect of the manifesto was done right here in Dominica.
“Our graphic artist is from Dominica, our manifesto was laid out here in Dominica and our manifesto will be printed right here in Dominica,” he said.
