UWP predicts 15-seat general election win

Linton says a UWP poll clearly shows that the party will win at least 15 seats
Linton says a UWP poll clearly shows that the party will win at least 15 seats

Leader of the United Workers Party (UWP) Lennox Linton is confident that his party will win the upcoming general election.

Linton said at a press conference earlier this week that a UWP internal poll predicts that the party will win at least 15 seats.

This directly contradicts a Caribbean Development Research Services (CADRES) poll which was recently conducted and which predicted a win for the ruling Dominica Labour Party (DLP).

The poll was conducted between October 17 and 20.

Based on the result of the poll, head of CADRES, Peter Wickham said there will be no change of government in the next general election.

Linton said the UWP poll was conducted for the purpose of giving a scientific read of the UWP.

“We did our own internal poll for the purpose of giving us a scientific read on where we are. It was not our intention to go public with this, but in the face of all of the hullabaloo about polls, questions raised at the last press conference we have stated publicly that we have done a poll and the poll shows that we are ahead,” he revealed. “The poll tells us clearly that we will win at least 15 seats in the upcoming general election.”

In fact, he said, there is something common in the both the polls done for the DLP and the UWP.

“Both polls show that the Labour Party has lost significant ground on the order of 18 percentage points on its 2009 level of support as documented by its share of the popular vote in the election of 2009,” Linton noted. “The Labour Party’s interpretation of that decline in popular support is that they will still win the election. We don’t know where else it happens that you can lose as much as 18 percent of your popular support and still be talking about winning a landslide victory as though there is nobody else in the race. It is illogical and makes absolutely no sense.”

Linton stated further that, “We are winning this elections, there is no question about that you don’t expect the Labour Party to tell you they are losing.”

“At this moment we speak selectively about the results of those polls and to stress that it does conquer with the numbers that the other polls from the Labour Party has publicized on the question of the loss of support for the Dominica Labour Party,” he said.

Meantime, UWP Candidate for the Roseau Central constituency, Joseph Isaac said the party did not conduct polls in Marigot, Salisbury and Wesley because they are “clearly UWP seat.”

According to him Wesley “is in the bag” for the UWP.

General election will be held in Dominica on December 8.

    ok people let cool down it is a fact that labour has lost ground but it is not enough for a uwp victory now remember these additional seat they win will be on the opposition so they need to do a very good job to keep the seats for 2019 which they could not do in 2005 else there would not be skerit all I am sayings is good luck

    November 10, 2014

    i think that both mr linton and mr skerrit are wrong. mr linton you are NOT going to win 15 seats. mr skerrit you are NOT going to win 21 seats.get this out of your minds.uwp you are going to do much better this elections by winning 7 or 8 seats as opposed to 3 before. dlp although you will win the elections you will loose some of the seats you won before.you will win 13 or 14 seats only.

    Dominican elections mirrors different everyday aspects of DA society such as a bus ride from Roseau to the country… allow me to explain in simple terms… if you’re on a bus, the bus is running and the engine is nice and hot the vehicle is moving, would you stop it to change the driver midway? Would you change the driver because he/she driver isn’t driving fast enough for some, or he/she driving too slow for others, some people will want their windows up, some people want their windows down, the bellerz sitting infront, some getting a free ride because dey pretty, some people foot squeezing, some people doh have money for the ride, the cadek doh even have a seat but he’s helping everybody get situated on the bus, some of us have too much load yet others will make space for us even if we all paying the same price for the ride… some people make mapwi saying that the driver charging more $ than other drivers. Yet when it start to RAIN heavy everybody on the bus forgets his/her differences and stay quiet because they know the driver needs to concentrate on the road, they don’t want the driver to roll down a precipice, hit another vehicle or get caught in a landslide… everybody now wants the driver to drive slow, everybody now closes their windows, everybody starts to pray secretly in their heart for a safe drive, praying they made the right choice for the bus driver to bring them safely home… not one person will argue, attack, or disrupt the bus driver because they know that man and only that man with Gods guidance can bring them home safe… well my friends it’s RAINING hard hard hard in DA, nobody wants to get wet, nobody wants the driver to put them down, and nobody want the bus to stop in the middle of the road, turn off the engine and pick up a new bus drive. A driver that don’t know the road or where the bus was going to try and drive us in this kind of rain!! Changing bus drivers will never stop the rain, knowing your driver is already halfway there, will get you home and that’s what matters HOME. Who will collect the bus fare the new hijacker or the real bus driver. Lennox U DOH READY YET!

    I am no poll specialist but i really think UWP will win 12 seats. There’s also word the Baron is making heard way in Petite Savanne and so is Felix in Mahaut. If and i say if these seat were to fall for the DLP, that could be very deadly. But i hope Dominicans think of what they’re doing. If you are satisfied with your PM and your pockets are doing just fine, then note them (DLP) back. If you are stuggling to make ends meet and don’t see a brighter future ahead as it stand, for the country and yourself/children then Vote uwp. Think of the jobs we have or lack thereof, unequality or equality, The country’s increasing debts, think of these things and what it means to you and how it wil affect you and then vote.

    I strongly believe DLP will win this general election I like Mr. Linton but Dominican voters will give DLP a next term to full filled their promises this is my predictation, UWP is running a good campaign they increase their chances for 2019 if this is the year.

    The Labour party will definitely lose seats in parliament, however, it will not be enough to result in a UWP victory. There are many people who have benefited from the Labour party be it job creation, schooling or the simple hand out. UWP party has disenfranchised these people who will be take to the polls. They should have persuade them on how things would have improved even beyond its current reach.

    UDOHREADYET, you call this a foolish comment? Let me reiterate bro/ sis, that ANYONE that votes for Skerrit goes down in my mind as one that was fooled like Ian, and in other to be fooled one must admit that they are foolish. I speak from experience because I voted Skerrit in 2005 and 2009. Has he delivered? Is Dominica a better place today than say 5 yrs ago? Are you better off today than you were 5 yrs ago? Apart from our Chinese friends and maybe Astaphans, which other local business place can honestly say they are better off? On the flip side of things, Is Skerrit better off this year than he was 5 yrs ago? Absolutely! Has his savings increased? You bet! has that of his close friends increased? A BIG yes! So why vote him? Just because I am a laborite? Why should I love myself and country and vote continue to vote for a man that is doing absolutely nothing to improve my life and country when his personal wealth seems to be feeding on Miracle growth? Am I not a FOOL to vote him again? Will my life or the country ever become better when we have to depend on his handout? If you want to vote him again, you are confirming to all that you are not ready yet

There has not been a large turnover of supporters to the workers’ side. we all know layou has always been a strong uwp zone, however DLP have their support and adequate support in st joe, layou and belles.

    My poll was done based on history of the various constituencies and work done on the grown there also programmes of the dlp around the country added to the new progammes and the ability of the dlp to manage the world financial crisis and all the negatives the uwp leader brought with him into the arena. The following Seats will go to DLP: Soufriere, Roseau North, Roseau Central, Roseau Valley, Roseau South, Mahaut, St Joseph, Colihaut, Portsmouth, Paix Bouche, Capuchin, Grand Fond, Petite Savanne, Castle Bruce, Gandbay, Vielle Case, Carib Territory and Wesley, and the following seats will go to UWP Salisbury, Marigot and Laplaine. It will remain 18-3 once again and DLP will continue developing this country for another five years. Peace.

    It’s scary reading all these post about who is going to win this election-yet not one post on who the people should vote for, and why the people should vote for them?

    In the past it was considered important for the voting public to be informed about the issues that affect their ridings and the overall welfare of country.

    Where is this moral guidance that should be based on one’s Values and Principles?
    All the choices we make as individuals, by definition, should have moral dimensions, that includes the choice you will make with your mark on election day!

    You must ensure as a decent God fearing person, that when you exercise your constitutional righby casting your ballot, you do so with a clear conscience for the right reason, and because of ‘promised’ favours, or ‘especially’ without moral consideration.

      Chris, you are right on here! My deepest concern is that we, Dominicans are not, or cannot think for ourselves and so we are simply repeating all of the negative and futile stuff that we are hearing–the poison that will kill us if we do not take heed..

      The mentality of contentiousness has crippled our minds. Only God can deliver us, as I believe He has done in the past. May His Will be done for the best in Dominica, and those of us who continue to maintain our revered fear towards Him –and I am sure that God’s Will is always the best will, come what may.

      “All the choices we make as individuals, by definition, should have moral dimensions, that includes the choice you will make with your mark on election day!”

      Chris, some of us thought you left us: we have not heard anything from you in a long while, nice to know that you are still here. Regarding the quote above let me say morality is something which has long flushed itself down the gutters; you know the storm drains in our country, if we have any!

      You know Moral; or morality could be defined as a doctrine or system of conduct; characterized by, or expressive of a narrow and conventional attitude. Unfortunately in Dominica, very few seems to care about the conduct of those who are leaders in our country. And let me make it abundantly clear and be specific; let it be know that my comments here has nothing to do with the opposition, nevertheles, has everything to do with the ruling Labor Party.

      Christian, when the Prime Minister of a country openly said; no law or constitution of a country can prevent him from becoming the Prime Minister of the country, or may say prevent him from contesting or participate in an election, that speaks volumes of the mans conduct. Such a person should not be allowed to be a leader, or a of representatives of a single human alive never mind a residential population of about forty thousand people. Skerrit Has placed himself on a pedestal above the laws, and constitution of our people: Such are the conduct of a dictator!

      The man has made himself Judge Jury, and executioner over the laws of our country. He never tell the truth, he is notorious in buying people; those he cannot buy he victimizes. Some of the of the country have to share the blame! Because they lack any form of morality, they grovel at that mans feet; so, here it is; we have arrive at a point where people no longer know how to vote on the issues of the day which affects their life’s directly, and in directly, hence they vote with no conscience. As long as they get a handout from the Prime Minister, that is good enough: ” he is my friend, he is our friend, we will vote for him.”

      Why are you voting for him? Well he handsome, and I went to him and he give me some money. Yes, but the question is do they know they have sold their conscience for a few messily dollars, instead of telling the Prime Minister, I would much prefer you to start the frame which others could follow, and create employment in the country so that I can obtain a job, and not depend on you, and the government for a handout. Chris, you know I supported Skerrit whole heartedly, but I have decide to speak out against him, because as a young man, the youngest Prime Minister to surface in our country; I thought of him as a young man would would have wanted everything the youths of the country wanted; and he would go all out to take Dominica “to higher level” to use his very own words. In stead he screwed up the country; the has failed, he has no morality. All he has done lately is lie to people, and believe it or not he has gotten away with his lies for fifteen years. This must come to an end; a liar has no morals you see! One as controversial as Mr. Skerrit is unfit to be Prime Minister, and leader of our country.

    Anyone who has spent ANY time in Dominica in the past 6 months KNOWS that UWP stands a very strong chance of winning at LEAST 12 seats this election.

    But they will also tell you the DLP is terrified and have too much to lose during this election. Even laborites will admit that they plan on cheating and putting their all into it. They did not anticipate such a strong opposition. We see all the spending, blockage of every attempt to have a clean voters list, etc. etc.

    UWP has always been a tough team to beat which is why Freedom party had to be subsumed into labor, and those living in the diaspora was so key to stealing the last vote.

    So what will it be this election season? DLP could very well win, even though we all know they are unpopular. The question will be what will Dominicans do then? If you can’t rely on the ballot box for change…well….see how kings have traditionally been deposed!

God Bless Dominica and continue to have peace in our peaceful country.

      You are promoting change by violence if the ballot fails to get that change you and your cohorts wants. May the Good Father bless you and the others and save you all as well.

That seat in the bag so go focus on one of the other 6 seats where the party need to do more work nuh?! Nonsense.

    The party going through financial hardship according to a report from another news media house. No money to campaign, so PM must reveal his source. Money or not both sides should reveal sources – ethical reasons, but alas there is no requirement (or is there?). Nonsense.

    The DLP has unleashed there brigade on the comment section. This is just another campaign tactic, and Workers need to observe this. The workers supporters are holding fort on facebook, whereas the DLP has shifted to DNO.

    But one thing is for sure, Linton has strong points. My friends, I saw a meeting held in Scotts Head by Ian Pinard. Being someone who frequents the area, I know and recognise many people. Ian must be dissappointed, further more he didn’t address the issue to his constituents as to how he will develop them as a constituency. Instead he went on some long rant about hospital will be better and other things, which don’t affect the constituency directly.

    I choose to highlight Soufriere because it has been a loyal servant of DFP/DLP… But I’m now convinced that Hidges Adams has strong chances of winning this seat. There were minimal people from Scotts Head present. This is a sign that Hidges will wipe out his turf on election day. I expect 65% of votes from Scotts Head to go for Hidges Adams.
    There were little to No young persons of voting age present at Ian’s meeting. Word on the ground is that Hidges Adams has more than significant support of the youth vote especially in Scotts Head, a good hand in Soufriere (labour supposedly bedrock)… and in Pointe Michel it’s greatly promising…

    The people of Pointe Michel are dissappointed in Ian Pinard, and they made it known, by the poor show of support. While Ian was out having meeting, it was echoed to me, that Hidges was busy doing last minute registering in Pointe Michel (Scotts Head, Soufriere, Gallion covered already)… within just 3 hours Hidges had supposedly registered over 15 new voters and had to attend his meeting later that night on Nov 5th 2014. So it’s expected he did alot more, if it needed to be done on the 6th, while Ian Pinard was busy at a meeting.

    The people of Scotts Head will vote their own. Make no mistake about it, I saw many in the crowd and I know they leanings are with the UWP. Dressed in red shirts of course. Campaign Manager Sam Martin who’s from scotts head, knows that. And he gave a stern warning “if you know you not with us, don’t follow us”

    Here’s the assessment, Hidges will win Scotts Head handsomely in grand fashion. Soufriere will give Ian the ‘edge’ and Pointe Michel will teach Ian a lesson by voting favorably for Hidges Adams. Hidges Adams will be the new Parl Rep. That’s my take on that. Hidges will win that seat. If Soufriere can go, then I know that what Mr. Linton has stated has alot of truth to it.

    The deal breaker are the youth vote. Ian doesn’t have that and the youth of Pointe Michel and Scotts Head wont fall for tablets and cell phones. DLP has a good support in soufriere hence may have lots of youth on board. Hidges has alot more youth support and this will give him the win. If Mr. Linton says UWP will win 15, then trust and believe they will win 11 or 12 seats.

        Sorry to dissappoint you, but my analysis stands. Now if you can’t bring an analysis to prove your point then best you don’t comment. It is a fact that Mr. Adams has alot more youth support than Mr. Pinard. With his community service first background, it is a fact that on the ground, the people resonate well with Mr Adams. You have not refuted that the turn out of actual Scotts Head people was poor, cause you know it was. Mr Adams will wipe his home base, he’ll get alot more support in soufriere than Glen Ettienne, and surely Pointe Michel will rally with Hidges Adams. So please present us with your analysis.

The Soufriere constituency had rejected labour all those years and now they have come to labour and if you know those persons do not shift allegiance like that. They remained DUPP/DFP even if they were the only ones when the whole country was labour. So check your stats again and come again.

If UWP wins, expect a heavy turn out of wise men and women on Dec. 08. So my prediction is, let’s wait until about 6PM on Dec. 08 to see if the fools of Dominica out match the wise or if the wise will out match the fools. Make no mistake about it, this election will be about how many fools verses how many wise people we have in Dominica.

Some of them have not gotten money from the government for months after working yet they say lobour………

      This is the problem with UWP and its supporters. For UWP to win, some labourites must cross over to them. But how can labourites do so when Team UWP keeps on calling them fools and other insulting names? You must respect the people’s opinion and their choices. Show them you value their opinion and their vote. Insulting them does not draw them to you.

I would like to inform the Prime Minister that he should brace himself, if he wins, he will be faced with civil disobedience.

      If labour wins expect statements like the – “inspite of the economic melt down; and the world financial crises and regimes against SIDs” the usual thats why we can do much more and can’t afford to pay this and that – but I tell for the next four weeks all that talk will be suspended as money and goodies will be flowing like a river.

      IFF I wuz ….. Public Works is a Statutory Corporation with their own board to generate their own income. The Government does not pay the PWC Workers. The Government does not have to give them money to pay their workers. The board has to be prudent… get the staff to work get a business plan going. Learn to outbid their competitors. Not try to get $$$$$$$ more than value for their project … Get the project and do a proper job so they will generate income to meet their expenses and salaries/wages. They must do so much a good job that persons will engage them over and over. Workers need to work diligently and hard not spending too much time on project because time is money (which most Dominican contractors have not understood) … Avoid wastage and damaging equipment since money spent on maintaining those useless damage is their salary and wages.

    November 7, 2014

    Both CADRES and UWP are wrong with their poll. As one would expect CADRES is pro Labor and UWP is pro UWP, and therefore both polls are misleading. AS the best umpire with no political allegiance, let me give you my true poll based on knowledge of what is happening on the ground and off course my replay technology which CADRESS & UWP do not have access to.
    The DLP will win the following constituencies hands down: Vieille Case, Paix Bouche, Portsmouth, Cottage, Colihault, Mahault, Soufriere, Grandbay, and Pitit Savan. Total = 9

    On the other hand, UWP will win in Wesley, Marigot, Carib Territory, Castle Bruce, Grand fond, La plaine, Roseau Valley, Roseau North, Salsbury, Roseau Central. Total =10. I left out St. Joseph and Roseau South because they are too close to call with UWP looking better in St. Joseph while DLP might have the very slight edge in Roseau South. But do not discard Joshua Francis either as he is really loved by constituents. I see a UWP government because all they need is one of the two while DLP needs both. Not only that but with an election so close if DLP would win both seats to give them 11, I would be surprised if Petit Savan, Soufriere, Colihault, Portsmouth and Mahault would not swing and form the government with UWP instead because I know they are not happy with Skerrit

The turnout was lackluster, hardly any youths. Hidges Adams has Ian in the neck and he’s squeezing on Ian until Ian cries for his mama. Believe that.

Another thing you understand is my suggestion is based on knowledge . You thin Ian Douglas is happy with Skerrit? You better think twice! I did not suggest all 5 would swing to uwp but rather any one or two. FYI let me add here that if UWP forms the next government Skerrit will not stay in opposition and that would call for a bar election in favor of UWP

    November 7, 2014

    (Excerpt )Regional pollster and analyst, Peter Wickham, has suggested that the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) will win again when the next general election is called.

    “Despite this the pollster told The Sun that there are a number of seats with ‘really, really close’ margins.

    According to him La Plaine, Morne Jaune and Roseau North constituencies are “most at risk, with each requiring a less than one per cent swing to change hands.”

    Wesley (2.4 percent) and Castle Bruce (4.8 percent) are described as ‘shaky’ for the DLP.

    The Labour Party’s own poll is suggesting that, even before the elections are called, the DLP has already lost four seats (Roseau North, Wesley, Laplaine and Morne Jaune). So even before Skeritt has called the elections, the UWP has 6 safe seats.

    the UWP’s candidates are of a standard never seen before in the history of Dominica . They have what it takes ..young intelligent, vibrant Dominicans who have stepped up to serve. I can see them winning in many more than five other constituencies to form the next government.
    Other seats up for grabs are Roseau seats, Kalinago Territory, Castle Bruce, Colihaut, St.Joseph, Mahaut and possibly Soufriere .
    The word is out that UWP supporter are dreamers HAHAHAh
    Every manefestation starts with a dream …So workers please dream big in fact dream huge. While you are at it imagine what it would be like with a cadre of young thinking Dominicans ready to turn our country around ..so that at the end of the month our family wont have to line up waiting for a handout to feed their families. Because we will be working. See it happening ….in your dreams make it our reality. No dream no progress ….

    Here are some reasons why I believe the DLP led by Skeritt will loose the general election. To much time was spent on Mr. Lennox Linton since September 2013. All the allegations of corruption have never been articulately addressed. For instance, the $260,000 fete as regards the renaming of the airport. The public workers and PWD workers have been discarded in terms of salary increases. The labor Government gave priority to infrastructure instead of growing the economy in order to assist the younger people with real jobs. I believe Skeritt has under estimated the people of Dominica in particular the young people. The younger people are very much involved in international politics and to tell them, he, as a leader, is running scared of a political leader who is declared to be a novice approximately fourteen months ago. That is a very serious problem. He believes the popularity he once possessed will give him another mandate to govern this country.

      I thinks its the opposite. Too much time was spent on Skerrit and taking him to court. The UWP should have spent that time beginning their community work (not talk, work).

      Doc Love DLP already has 11 sure seats so how are they going to loose? Can you tell us which of these seats listed below that the UWP will take from DLP:
      1. Vieillecase
      2. Paix Bouche
      3. Portsmouth
      4. Cottage
      5. Colihaut
      6. St. Joseph
      7. Mahaut
      8. Roseau South
      9. Point Michel
      10. Grand Bay
      11. Petite Savanne

      Base on my calculation DLP will win a minimum of 19 seats!!!!

      Best joke of the year……wait …. wait……is when Dominica has to buy bananas from Guadeloupe, LOL…..aint no body giving you fig any more.

    In the run up to the last general elections, Mr. Don Christopher of blessed memory, did speak to the results of a “scientific poll” he had and the UWP had conducted/commissioned. The results of that poll gave the UWP “15 sure” seats, the Labour Party 5 and the Freedom Party 1. Mr. Christopher stressed his numbers and was confident his was a scientific poll. I leave the results of the poll, including the loss of 4,000 plus votes for the UWP to those will later write and interpret the history of general elections in Dominica. Maybe, just maybe, the self same 2009 poll has been resurrected from the dead.

    I’m a non aligned voter but I think the UWP poll seem to be more credible. e.g. I will never believe that according to the Labor poll, only 2% of Dominican believe that corruption is a none issue in this election. Even if it’s only a quarter of UWP supporters who believe that corruption is a none issue that already amounts to so much more than 2%. So looking on the fence I think the Labor poll is bogus. I’m inclined more and more to vote for UWP. I think they are more honest.

      You are a aligned voter to the UWP, stop fooling yourself. What Mr. Linton is saying is far from scientific. Where in Mr. Wickhams poll is the DLP Losing 18% support? Is Mr.Linton counting undecided voters as a swing away from the DLP to UWP, that woul be new in polling model. But desperate times calls for desperate statements.

  82. November 7, 2014

    Mr. Linton am not sure your party will win but one thing I know Mr. Skerit doesn’t have the confident as you.the last speech he gave he didnt sound confidential at all, uwp made a urge mistakes previous election if uwp had done a good campaign last general election they would have a better chance this term.

    So if the internal polls so indicate, why the ranting and raving on Q95 this morning about the elections being rigged because of the list not being cleansed and Matt urging people at this unearthly hour (election wise), to do something about it if the electoral commission will not. Quite a lot of anger coming through I thought, almost like preparing for defeat even to the extent of the issue of gathering evidence for the courts.

    An intelligent way of operating, in my view, is to try to get consistency in public presentations. Speak to your people about your strategy so that there is some kind of unity of voice rather than flip flopping on almost every issue and small finger saying one thing, middle finger another, thumb completely off tangent. Not good at all particularly considering that the bell has been rung!

      Preparing their people for civil disobedience. That’s all! that is all. Remember the famous quote form Soufriere Scotts head. “Call nah! call it nah. Tell Mr. Skerrit to call it nah”! it is here. And we have problems?

        @just observing, FYI, civil disobedience began and gathered steam when Skerrit told the nation that he had no respect for the nations laws and constitution. Check the record to see how many murders, stabbings, theft, and other civil disobedience that took place since that famous statement was made.

      preach it. However i think the part about the women asking for money is a matter broughtupsy. Thats the new style these days. A lot of our young women think leaving school early to make child and dress nice is what life is about. When life hit them in the face they have their hand out for this and that. Half the time they have 5 different man for 3-5 different things. I have a patner/padner that met a woman some months ago, and the woman has been hounding the man to buy her a stove (she insists on a 6 burner for her kitchen), if u see the size of the kitchen, the stove takin half. Another one is for lights, she tell him is 320 for the lights, when he check and go and pay it himself without her knowing is 70 for the lights. So yes things tight in Dominica, but a majority of our young women have lost all sense of pride and morals all for vanity and material things. Again i blame the men who promote this kind of prostitution and think that being a man is letting woman milk them. Yes things tight but we dont work hard anymore, we want it now
