    I wonder if Vince had forgotten grand bay from today because I know someone that knows Vince personally and said that Vince did nothing for their constituency when he was their pal rep so I wonder what is there for grand bay people now

    This is a fraudulent representation, which in turn brings a fraudulent ministerial post, all under a cloud of illegality, abuse and disdain of the very same constitution that they are swearing to uphold. How long was this man residing in country before his nomination? The application of qualification that he supposedly filled out, states that one has to be residing in the state (Dominica) for 12 months before the nomination and election. How did the electoral people miss that? Were they blinded by the dimpled flashing smile? Is everything in Dominica corrupt? Will no one stand up for the constitution? Will no one stand up to dimples even when they know he is wrong? Unfortunately, the price of wickedness will be paid by all of us. God forgive us all, please.

    So will Mr. Henderson still be offering consultancy services for the geothermal plant? Because that would be a direct conflict of interest… aka the textbook corruption case.
    There already is this problem with the Minister of Communication and Works owning CORISAV, who gets consultancy projects for almost every government project.
    These things are happening so blatantly now; what is the world coming to.

    DNO do you realise that what you have reported here makes no sense? “Parliamentary Representative for the Grand Bay Constituency Hon. Dr. Vince Henderson will be sworn in as Minister for Planning, Economic Development, Climate Resilience, Sustainable Development, and Renewable Energy…. Senator Gregory Riviere will be reassigned as the Minister of State in the Ministry of Blue & Green Economy, Agriculture and National Food Security. He has held the post of Minister of State
    in the Ministry of Finance, Economic Affairs and Planning since December 2019.”
    DNO do you realise that the ministry that the Hon. Dr. Vince Henderson is assuming and the ministry that Senator Gregory Riviere is vacating are two different ministries? So is a new ministry being created? Have a new ministry been created for Hon. Dr. Vince Henderson? Is a Cabinet reshuffle taking place or not? Please do some political analysis and add value and intelligence to the reporting! Provide some insights to your…

      …and to the Government of Dominica, “Minister for Planning, Economic Development, Climate Resilience, Sustainable Development, and Renewable Energy” could be written as Minister for Planning, Development, Climate Resilience and Renewable Energy, and still mean the same thing. Having Economic Development and Sustainable Development as separate, in an era when all development should be sustainable, is creating unnecessary confusion and ambiguity!
