The opposition United Workers Party (UWP) says it will be embarking on what it describes as a “Caribbean diaspora tour” to reach out and lay out its plans and programmes to Dominicans living in the region.
The party will be visiting five islands in five days.
Speaking on the matter Dr. Thomson Fontaine told a press conference on Thursday, “the UWP continues to reach out to it’s people and will be embarking on a five in five starting May 17 in Antigua and culminating in St.Maarten on May 21st.
Among other countries to be visited are St. Thomas, St. Croix and Tortola.
On that tour will be the political leader Lennox Linton, Isaac Baptiste, Ron Green and other members of the UWP including Dr. Fontaine.
“The main purpose of this tour is to inform the Dominican public of the upcoming election and also to seek their support for the development of Dominica, ” Fontaine explained.
According to him, the UWP understands the tremendous importance the diaspora can and should play in Dominica’s development.
“That is why we are reaching out to them to support our efforts because we are very confident that we are in a position to form the next government and we will be looking for the support of Dominicans every where, ” he said.
