UWP to take criminal court action in light of December poll

Linton said there were irregularities during the general election
Linton said there were irregularities during the general election

Opposition leader, Lennox Linton, has said that although the United Workers Party (UWP) did not file any “election petition” following the December 8, 2014 general election, the party will be going to court on a criminal basis since certain irregularities allegedly occurred during the poll.

He stated that the UWP will be going to court before the required six months to do so expires.

“We have maintained that certain things that happened during the election of 2014 were illegal,” Linton said. “Certain criminal acts were committed and we intent to pursue those in court…the preparations for that are ongoing.”

He said the UWP has not pursued legal action in the form of election petitions. “You will notice that we have not filed an election petition, 21 days have gone by since the election and so we are not pursuing that kind of legal action,” he stated.

Linton also said the UWP will be going to parliament as a team and he hopes, at some point, the opposition will be given proper space and staff to do its work, just as other islands in the Caribbean have done.

He said it is “shameful” that in 2015, the UWP, as opposition, is restricted to a space in parliament, of about 150 square feet, to use as an office.

“That is unacceptable,” Linton stated. “We are a creature of the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Dominica with important roles to play in the development of the country. It is time that we step up to the plate. We have the largest Cabinet in the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) but in every other OECS country, there are superior arrangements made for the work of the opposition and we need to pay attention to that.”

Linton lamented the size of the cabinet in Dominica.

He revealed that Antigua recently held general election where the Antigua Labour Party won and a cabinet of 12 was appointed for an economy of over $3-billion but in Dominica, with an economy of over $1-billion an 18-member cabinet was appointed.

“But, in all of that, we have no money for the opposition to properly do its work in Dominica,” Linton said. “The media must ask questions about that. Go to St. Lucia, Antigua, St. Kitts, Barbados, and Grenada and see the arrangement made for the opposition in these countries. We are in the back water of our treatment of the opposition in Dominica and that is one of the things that have to change. We are talking reconciliation, olive branch, working together and moving forward. Let’s move forward with proper arrangements for the opposition to do its work funded by the State.”

    Lennox is right. It is time we stop mixing up the office one holds with the personalities. Leadership in Government and the Opposition are 2 sides of the same coin so it is incumbent on the Administration to provide the facilities appropriate to the Opposition and in keeping with the office they hold.

      You see, there you go again. Government is not the labour party or the UWP party or any party.

In Dominica Govt. is to represent everybody, even people you don’t like personally. That is democracy my friend.

There is only one person yapping all the time.. By now most of us are really fed up with this.. Honestly. Nothing constructive from this man always moaning and groaning demanding this and that… I really want Danny. Joshua,Bazil and Spaggs.to get rid of lennox he is bad news for the party.. He is the only one yapping.. I must say he and he alone is the opposition….get rid of lennox the sooner the better… He is championing his own personal cause. He has an axe to grind , he needs to prove something, basically he is an insecure individual with a lot of jealousy…

    I’m tired of hearing Lennox Linton cry. I thought team Dominica would be coming in and talking some serious issues in terms of our development. But this opposition is no different from the Jokers who were walking out of parliament. The UWP should rename themselves to the UIP United Idiot Party. Bunch of Idiots. I know the admin might block my comment but I have to call it how I see it. Bunch of Idiots. They and their Idiot supporters. Never seen such idiocricy in my life. UIP giving Dominicans a bad name. When people from overseas hear what the opposition party doing in Dominica they will think Dominicans stupid. Something needs to be done. How can a country have so many idiots.

      You know my friend, sometimes we can compound the issue if we refuse to deal with the issues in all fairness, and honesty. The fact is the opposition was elected by a minorrity of people, they need to be represented in parliament also.

      As such it is right and proper to afford the opposition work space in the form of an office which could accommodate the elected six! Look at it this way; two relatives of mine attached to the Labor Party, one contested the election in Wesley. Gloria Dods-Shillingford, and Athenia Benjamin, -a Dods in reality could have shared Gloria’s office which she maintained in the village paid for my the government for more than five years. Nevertheless, instead of sharing space we find that Cousin Athenia office had her own office, located (in me dead daddy) house, I do not know who paid, or who is paying rent if she is still there, so if a candidate can have personal offices, why can’t the elected officials in the opposition be provided office space!…

      Sir, you live in a country where in this present time, you are free to not listen to Mr Linton or any of the idiots who agrees with him. So, whenever you come across anything to do with Mr Linton, please do as I usually do whenever I see one of your silly comments, shut your eyes, bar your ears and just pass it by. Your agenda is clearly one of malice and your problem is, your inability to engage Mr Linton without on his level, safer to do it behind a keyboard.

    An other media attention grandstanding by the master. The cabinet is too big but his office is too small. That man should be on tv as an advocate for the Tea Party.
    Work with what you have. you have an office and election is over. You can also work at home . This is the age of computer , telephone and online. In short the only case you have is a suitcase. Ignorant of the law is no excuse. You have been showing no regard or knowledge of the law or of procedure. All you know is radicalism and reactionism. The admiration you acquired as a first time political leader and your success in your first election will soon be replaced by a vote of no confidence and the uwp will have to find a new leader.

      If you knew the constitution and how democracy work you would not vent this ignorant remark. You are clueless and seems brainless to an extent if you are saying that the opposition does not require its own space to work for the development of the country. The cabinet is much too large and you know that. MS.Charles ran the country with less and we acquired more. Edison did the same. You want the opposition to work from home but Skerro and his boys must have the whole building and still their production is zero(0). In this age of Technology I don’t even think that some of the ministers knows how to turn on a computer.
      The opposition represents people too and they are opposition cause the people voted them and therefore they need adequate space to perform their functions. Don’t be an idiot, watch others states and see how democracy works!

Once again it is all about you demanding something . Do your work and stop making a mockery of the system.. Will the size of the office make you PM. Governor, President? What exactly it is you want…… You behaved in the same manner on the event of your swesring in demanded that you should be in the statehouse.,demanding for world wide media coverage, an opposition leader..

      You have the typical behaviour of someone suffering from an inferior complex. Behave yourself and do what your supporters voted for you to do.. Being in parliament is not a beauty contest, ( you want an oak table. A crystal vase,a chandelier, a maid and butler.a wine cabinet champagne to serve .. What else…

As far as he is concerned, anything or anyone connected to the opposition is a problem for him. He can spend lots of money at the red clinic, he can spend lots of money on free housing, he can spend lots of money pit toilet, but he will not spend a cent on a constitutionally elected opposition comfort, for instance, a proper well organized office. :mrgreen:

    Hon. Lennox Linton, I concur and support you 100% on that. The Gov’t of the Comm. of Dominica (regardless of party/political colors) should at minimal, provide reasonable accommodation for a duly elected opposition to conduct the people’s business in public facilities.
    As for the other matters, I do not believe there is any gain in pursuing that in court (just my two cents). From my professional standpoint, I do believe that a compelling argument can be made with regards to the Grand Fond constituency. However, the same can’t be reasonably made for the other constituencies – that is taking it too far. In my opinion, the results and wishes of the people were exhibited at the ballots and it was obvious that they preferred their DLP. Hence, the UWP party would be better serve by working on increasing its momentum with the seats gain in parliament and focus on party building – it should not allow itself to be caught standing idle.
    In the meantime, we have lot of work to do so let’s…

      You are making a fool of yourself when u and all those u represent thinks that it is wrong to stand up for what u believe in, as a matter of fact whatever Mr Linton is doing he is doing within the constitution, so go check yourself before u wreck yourself.

    Never compare Dominica with its neighbors like Antigua, St. Lucia, Grenada, St. Kitts and Barbados Lennox. You know better.
    Throughout the last decade, we’ve demonstrated to the world that we are gullible, greedy, selfish, and doesn’t give a damn about the future of our nation. As far as we’re concerned, as long as Roosevelt Skerrit and his government give us bribes in the form of money, cement, plywood, goodies while they continue to fleece and get exceedingly richer, we shall support him in every election. As long as we see our court system selectively allow certain criminals to get away with fire bombing, attempted murder, murder by police while in custody, we shall support him. As long as the Prime Minister make promises to us that he doesn’t keep, lies, deceives, and blatantly disrespects us without being held accountable, we shall support him. And last but not least, as long as the government ignores the laws and the constitution to include not recognizing the opposition,…

You want to show you serious only use the people that were voted in let there be no senators on your side, how can I go with what you claiming when you did nothing to reduce your side? is not your fault is so they put you in my DA voice.

      Why don’t fool like you keep quiet ans stay out of public view? All the comments I see from labourites since the elections demonstrate that they have no clue about anything, just a bunch of brain dead people.

    Mr. Linton, I agree with all your points raised an the planed court action. I hope the outcome will be a positive one. Having said that, court rulings of the past would indicate to put my hopes not to high. Skerrit will no doubt do his best to influence the judicial system as he has done in the past.

    January 14, 2015

    I am happy the UWP will be making their concerns known before the court although we already know what to expect. The entire system is corrupt and very unreliable. You put the court, judiciary, The church, the media and all other major institutions in Dominica together and you will get CORRUPTION at it’s best! As for the Church at one time they were seen and respected as God’s voice to the nation. Today, not even Skerrit or his labor operatives respects them. He only uses them just as the devil uses his messengers,

    This is why we are not moving forward as a nation, elections done but we still battling the results. Government get down to the work of the people, opposition do the same to build a better Dominica.

    This is why I hate politic in DA…….. the loosing party begins campaigning the next elections the very same day the results are in. ZERO support for anything the government is doing even if they know it is right.

  54. January 14, 2015

    All these facts go to show what kind of person the PM really is or has become.Taking advantage of the under privileged. God is not sleeping Lennox, he is seeing everything. So he is the judge.

      Pedro it seems this is our FIRST Parliament?

      Lennox boss stop COMPLAINING and get on with the work of the people, we all had to endure what you have, Eddo UWP whilst in power never saw it fit to enlarged the space provided for the leader of the opposition but we stuck to what was important and won the elections in 2000.

      YOU PEOPLE ACTING AS IF IS SKERRIT THAT CREATED DOMINICA AND PARLIAMENT!!!! I AM FED UP WITH ALL YOU CONSTANT WHINING, GROW UP MAN YOU 60 ACT YOUR AGE!!!!!!!!

        I agree. The leader if the UWP has changed but the nonsense still goes on. Its about time they accept the results and get on with the work they say they want to do. When they had won the election, DLP did not contest the results. They got on with trying to improve the Party and won the next election. All they did was walk out of Parliament. I was hoping that this new set of people would be different. Let the Government get on with their job and do yours. Some people who knows you, Mr Linton, cant understand why Mr James put you in charge of the UWP. You have to prove to me that you are better than The PM. I am waiting. I left and went abroad when UPW was in Power, I came back when DLP won.

      Your comment is rubbish. The Observers give the thum up,the election was free and fair. Lennox needs to do his political home work in the house for which he was elected.

        Why are you relying on the observers to validate what in you heart you know to be untrue? You know damn well that the election was stolen.
