It will not stand – Linton on Savarin’s presidential nomination

Lennox Linton

The nomination of Charles Savarin by the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) government to be president of Dominica is not going down well with the leader of the  United Workers Party (UWP), Lennox Linton, who vowed it is not going to stand.

“This will not stand, this will not be allowed to stand in Dominica,” Linton said on privately-owned Q95 on Thursday morning.

Prime minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, announced on Thursday that Savarin had resigned his ministerial and senatorial positions and is the government’s nominee for president.

But Linton argued that Savarin is not the best person to take on the job as Dominica’s head of state.

“Mr Savarin has demonstrated over the years that he is so uncurably partisan that he simply cannot fit the bill of being an independent, objective, impartial holder of the office of president,” he said.

He noted that Savarin has an affidavit in court where he took objection “to Dave Bruney sitting on the IPO because Dave Bruney hosted a program for the United Workers Party.

“In the same affidavit Charles Savarin is confirming he is a host of the next level program for the Labour Party on Kairi FM,” he said. “And that is the same Charles Savarin who, having argued that partisanship should not come into the IPO, is walking out of the partisan position of being a minister of government, member of the Skerrit cabinet today and walking into the presidency tomorrow.”

According to Linton in the presidency there should be impartiality, a removal from the political fray, an ability to operate above and beyond the cut and thrust of political argument, an ability to heal wounds and resolve conflicts.

He stated Savarin won’t be able fit the bill since he has shown over the years that “the only position he can hold is that of a partisan position.”

“The partisan position that caused him years ago to declare that the people of Dominica should go out, look for Labourites in every nook and cranny in the country, pull them out and deal with them,” Linton said. “The same Charles Savarin that referred to us patriots as Taliban, the same Charles Savarin that has any number of unsavory things to say about the UWP, who had no problems in destroying the Dominica Freedom Party to prevent the UWP from being in the parliament and that is who we expect to go now in the presidency and be fair and impartial?”

Linton did not say what action the UWP will be taking to protest Savarin’s nomination.

    It’s fine to criticise and disagree, but you have to offer alternative.
    NOT ONCE HAVE I READ ‘ANY WHERE,’ UWP’s NOMINATON FOR PRESIDENT, which I’m sure they are entitled to under THE CONSTITUTION.

    Roseau Valley for President! Stop hiding behind your shadow and come forward. Donate your time to the island you seem to love so much instead of spending time blogging all day and helping create confusion on the island. As a good gesture, you can accept a salary of $1.00 a year.

    Wow!! I am so sorry to hear that Charlo will be President, that is lowering the dignity and respect of the post.

    The day Charlo becomes President is the day that I will hold no respect any more for that position and the positions appointing him.

    Is this a game Mr. Prime Minister? I have to think you will see through this before Monday, before it is too late. Please do not think of Linton, think of what it means and does for and to Dominica. I wish you well.

    The Personality of the President
    The personality of the Head of State can be viewed from two main angles, the political arena and the public viewpoint.

    In the former instance the President must be non-partisan with a special endowment to be objective in coming to a resolution on any matter. He should be able to effect consensus between political parties when no one else can. He is a symbol of national unity.

    Where the general public is concerned, the President has to be a role model a person greatly esteemed with exceptional moral rectitude and high ethical standards. He also has to be a person of intellectual capacity who will know what he does not know and knows where to seek knowledge.

    He must not be easily swayed by public opinion, but has the ability to listen and weigh carefully what is put before him before he acts. He must not be insensitive to the causes of the people.

    He should have the capacity to be at ease at all levels of society and at the same time everybody should feel comfortable with him without violating the dignity of the office. A President has to be a people person who is sensitive to the needs and aspirations of the people. He must have the unusual ability to reprove people when they are wrong, yet understanding that he must be the person who is merciful.

    He must understand the philosophies of the various societies, organizations and institutions that do so much to bring relief and show brotherly love. He must be humanitarian. He must be a public speaker with a public image that is above reproach.

    well Mr Linton I don’t want to hear about Labour Governance and the constitution..i surely know what they are doing and I certainly know UWP record and records…I really would want to know the reasons why UWP should be back in Governance. That’s what you need to convince and explain to the people about.Tell me why I should vote you.I am certainly not convinced because it is the same group or set of people.I aint foresee no difference Mr Linton.

    “This will not stand, this will not be allowed to stand in Dominica,” PERIOD.

    Savarin is NOT the best person to take on the job as Dominica’s head of state.

    Saverin is too partisan and void of the objectivity and ability to bring resolution to any matter of national interest. He is UNABLE to effect consensus between political parties.
    He is NOT a symbol of national unity.
    He is NOT a good role model, a person greatly esteemed with exceptional moral rectitude and high ethical standards.
    He does NOT have the capacity to be at ease at all levels of society and Dominicans do NOT feel comfortable with him. He is a violation of the dignity of the office of president.

    My fellow Dominicans I feel obliged to voice my opinion like everyone else on this divisive and sensitive issue in question. The office of President of Dominica. To begin with personally I don’t think such an office should exist on a small nation Island like Dominica. Both political parties should come together and work towards an amendment to the constitution that will no longer require Dominica to have a President. I believe that the position of the Prime Minister qualifies whom ever it may be as head of State. From an economic stand point it sure makes sense to use that money paid to the President for something else. For too many years our little Island has suffered from the effects of party politics based on a pattern and culture of partisanship. We as a people have lost respect for each other because of our political views and ideologies. We have gotten to the point where we can no longer agree to disagree. Right now we desperately need leadership that can unite our nation and one that can educate the masses on nation building and how we can progress as a people. Dominica and Dominicans may never get anywhere if we continue to dehumanize and tear down each other. I believe that everyone has a right to be passionate in their support of their political party but let us demonstrate a little civility and most of all respect for the process of electing our leaders. One for each and each for all.

    Dominicans need to put politics on a side and stand up for Dominica. This is not about UWP, DLP, or DFP…it’s about Dominica.

    In fact if we do our research we will see that Savrin has done more harm to the DLP and DFP than he has to the UWP. It was he that killed the DLP and kept them out for 21 yrs. He is the known killer of the DFP which he led in the 2000 elections which won 2 seats. The man so badly destroyed the once upon a time powerful DFP that now no matter where a DFP candidate runs, it will be very difficult for them to win. Can true labourites ever trust the selfish Charlo again? no way! Can a true Freedomite ever trust Charlo again? Never! needless to mention UWP since the party is comprised of the good labourites of the 80’s and good freedomites of the 90’s.

    Skeritt will not make himself the laughing stork of Caricum a third time, neither will he circum to the pressure from his worse nightmare Mr. lennox Linton. Therefore, on Monday, come hell or high water Savarin will be the next President of Dominica. What is left for Mr. Linton the UWP to do is to boycott all activities that involve Savarin. They can start by not attending Parliament on Monday. The official opening of the President’s Palace. The official Independence Celebrations which starts in November, that too should be boycotted. In fact, as long as Savarin is President, Skeritt and his jokers should be the only ones to enjoy his presence.

    September 26, 2013

    But! But But! What am i seeing there nuh! Lennox shouting it will not stand!! Who is really Lennox again! who does he represent? Mister hasn’t received one vote in his life as yet and he want to sound like some kind of authority in this land!! This country of our is really something else. I agree with you though Lennox, Charlo just came from the political side, but God have mercy!! the same constitution gives you or your party a right to make a nomination, you all refuse to exercise that RIGHT but want to fight down someone else for exercising their RIGHT. If you think the choice is bad then you show the Dominican people who you believe is the best by exercising you all right through a counter nomination. If you all fail to exercise that right then you should just shut up. It is ironic that people should want to protest against someone nomination which is part of a process where the law provides for such nomination. By the way you keep bringing up the pass things that Mr Savarin might have said, so why then when your pass utterances are made reference to it is seen as a problem by your supporters. We all have sinned and would have events in our lives before, even event in our childhood, some we saw happen before our very eyes that we would wish to forget or even some we ourselves would have participated in, would you then like for it to be used against you and prevent you from serving in a later life? If Saverin isn’t qualified on the basis of what he told Fredomites in the 70s then you Mr Linton should not be qualified based on what you did at school and maybe base on some other childhood activities that you were exposed to.
    My brother lets stop the foolishness and my advice to you is to get your party to do the right thing ,by exercising your right to make a nomination.

      @looking from inside, I guess you need to start looking from outside to understand who Lenox is. In fact you don’t have to go very far looking to know who he is. Just go back two months and take it from there and if you don’t see who Lenox is, then something is wrong with you. FYI, it was Lenox who uttered those same words “It will not stand” when Skerrit tried to get one of his friends from Grenada to serve as DPP. That did not stand! he uttered those same words when Skerrit tried to get another one from Guyan by the name of Kurt De Freatas for DPP and that sure did not stand! It was Skerrit that nominated Alix Boyd Knights for president and that same unknown gentleman by the name of Lenox Linton that said “That will not stand” and it sure did not stand. Based on his track record, I have every reason to believe it will NOT STAND AS WELL

    UWP is seeking attention. They only won three seats.

    They always exaggerate the process just to remind people the have a post under the constitution. What they should know if they respect the constitution, the Leader of the Opposition is not the CEO of the country, the Prime Mister is.

    The best remedy for them is for the prime minister to treat them with kids gloves.

    They are seeking technicalities, spiting hairs. Their intention is to have a constitutional crisis, that is why they boycotted the house and refused to be sworn in. Is that respect for the constitution?

    The are praying for breaches of the constitution, they are not guarding the constitution. They are looking for the first opportunity to steal the constitution.

    What a sorry state of opposition governance in the country?

    Wake up Labourities. Stand Firm for a fourth term.

    This is getting from bad to worse. The nomination of Charles Savarin, in my humble opinion, an unmistakeable slap in the face of ALL Dominicans. This man is NOT qualified under any circumstances, to be President of all Dominicans. He has demonstrated contempt for broad swaths of the Dominican public, from way back when he ran CSA, shutting down the country, and to this day. He has been implicated in a number of unsavory dealings.

    PM Skerritt – you are dividing the country even further, and for what purpose? At a time we need to come together, a man as polarizing as Charles Savarin is not in the interest of Dominicans – I dare say that you are looking out for yourself; you probably believe that you are cementing voctory at the next plebiscite, but I think you are wrong – this has the potential to backfire on you. Rescind this nomination pronto. The position of President of The Commonwealth of Dominica ought not be a political one – this figure needs to be a middle-of-the road person, or someone thought of as that; someone Domiicans can say they are content with and believe is qualified. Charles Savarin does NOT fit that description.

    I am born a Freedomite; like Saverin, like Skerrit: we born in freedom and we are Labor!

    Charles will make a great President. Unlike Linton – he graduated from High School.

    He has served his country well, and, he has always shown leadership. As a Freedomite – I will ally myself with my enemy to defeat Lennox Linton – because I know Lennox; he has a temper, he always bullied in class, like he later did on the radio, he is also not so smart and worst of all – he does not have the aptitude to be PM.

    Linton will not stand.

    Like many other born Freedomites – we are Labor. Obviously – a bunch of self-righteous individuals along with partisan UWP supporters may oppose – but we the majority of patriotic citizens along with born Labor supporters will dispose their opposition and elect a deserving Dominican in Charles Saverin as the new President of the homeland.

    I am – with several of his classmates – and a few of his radio victims – we are writing an expose of Mr. Linton. Saverin has stood for us. Linton – that cowardice radio bully will never stand.

    Charles Saverin will stand as President

    I read with disgust some of the reckless statements that are being made here. Dominicans both here and abroad need to start putting their country before their party. We have to be bold enough to stand up to our leaders ( both opposition and government) and chastise them when they are doing wrong. We need someone who is fair and who has integrity to occupy the office of president. Someone who is able to unite masses and who is able to put both the members and opposition in their places. Anyone who is affiliated with any of the political parties should not occupy the office of president. I am pretty sure there are people out there in Dominica who are not politically affiliated and can do the job.

    Sometimes it is at moments of weakness that leaders try to show their might, sometime in desperation, resort to even violence. This behaviour over the past two weeks seem to be taking us on course for a civil crash. Only a leader with hings to hide, with a tainted agenda would pursue some of the most controvertial persons in Dominica to be in the office that sohould purport, calm, composure, unity and the hihest respect.

      The real question is how can people like you accept the garbage of Skerrit and the DLP?

      The government thinks it has power to disrespect us and thrash the Constitution of Dominica but the power rests in the people.

      Brian Alleyne is an honourable gentleman, albeit as a civic-minded patriotic Dominican, who cares about Dominica he has his political views but je has demonstrated that he thinks and conducts himself always above the partisan political fray.

      One cannot compare Sir Alleyne with characters like Charlo and Alix. Mr. Alleyne is correct that the PM is not fit to be the leader of Dominica.

      Where are you going with that comparison with the US political system? There is no comparison.

    This is not about whether you are labour or UWP supporters. Dominicans are missing the point. It’s about the constitution of our land. Lets put politics aside for once people. Charlo is not fit for presidential nomination because of his political affiliation. His judgement as president will be clouded as a result.

        @ girl, I don’t know what kind of laborite you are but certainly you sound like one that is gaining from the Skerrit / Savrin fake labour party. Where were you when I supported, voted and almost got killed in 1979 for the true DLP? If you are a labourite as claimed, do you know anything about the history of Labour? Do you know how had Savrin worked to bring down labour? Do u remember when Savrin ran bitterly against Mike Douglas in the Portsmouth constituency just to try to kill the DLP? You are no labour just as neither Skerrit nor savrin are, They are just using the name to get the gains but what they stand for are very, very, very far from the policies of the DLP which the likes of PJ, Leblanc, OJ, Rosie, Mike , and Piero stood for.

    I grew up in Portsmouth hearing things like the Labor Party is the poor man’s organization; All shall eat; I also knew that charles saverin was public enemy #1 – Laborites in Portsmouth hated Charles Saverin with a passion. In fact the Portsmouth people named him the Ayatola; The people of Portsmouth know of instances where Charles Saverin had been very disrespectful and insulting.
    But this is not all Laborites in general ought to be ashamed of themselves when Laborites know exactly what Charles Saverin did to the Labor Party.

    It is sad to look at the Hijackers who are posing as Laborites – the party for the poor people and hijackers have become multimillionaires. Those who are able build their houses with cash andat the same time go to England and buy a house in cash for a struggling baby sister. This great injustice should not go unpunished
    Laborites in Dominica have to be the kindess sheep on earth to not recognize the very same wolves who terrorize their parents and grand parents and now the same wolves are blossoming utilizing the same labor Party logo while Laborites are poor and unable tofeed their families

Mr Savarin is also a Dominican who has contributed from way back in the 1970’s Civil Servants don’t ever forget and more recently Minister of Government. What have you contributed to Dominica but only cries of strife and anger investigative as you call yourself.

    Dear Mr. Linton

    let me tell you something that I know – No matter who is nominated, you will never be satisfied. It just occurred to me this morning, that those who spend time criticizing this and that and listening to the things called “Talk shows” are really dissatisfied persons and also “unhappy persons”. Some have so much free time that they even forget that there is an Almighty Father whom we must thank and Praise for his mercies. Sir, with all due respect to you, I wonder if you do sleep at nights. May the Father save you and put his fear into you. This is bold and I must say this to you. Poison kills the person who takes in the form of hatred. Hatred shows on some person’s face and one feels the negative when those who hate are around. It is high time to stop all this political nonsense In the Land. Dominica belongs to us all no matter what we party we support. Since you have just been installed as new Leader of the Opposition Party, now is not the time to oppose this and that and talk about one man yes one man (you know who it is). Do what is best for the country by putting into place your plans if your party would win. Seek the Lord too. If you do with your whole heart, he will direct your path.

    It is disheartening that you have place such your God given talent to destructive use. Rethink and realign yourself. Learn from your past mistakes as well.

    Good luck to you sir and who is your nominee? As for me, I don’t care who is President, the PM can even make you or even Mr. Eddison James as well. What you say? Let us have your nominee. Stop being against everything. This is not going to take you anywhere positive.

He has said certain things he should not be proud of.However,Mr.Linton should tell us who ‘his’ nominee is,put his/her resume online, email same to all the persons who are qualified to vote on Monday and speak to them one on one and convince them why ‘his’ candidate is better qualified. If I were the Leader of the Opposition,Hon Hector John and MP for Salisbury that’s what I would be doing.Mr.Linton should sit and discuss strategy with Mr.John if he is really concerned.

Mr. Savarin is a new nomination and the proper procedures should be followed before he can be elected. A new 14 day period should begin if the opposition leader does not agree with this new nomination after which parliament (not the prime minister)decides through a vote. It cannot be that a new nomination is made today followed by election on Monday

    Like or dis-like Lennox Linton, whether his statements are factual or not, the un-arguable fact is that ANY presidential candidate should be without any political bias, prejudice or inclination. A past political allegiance, especially immediate past, should always be a strong indicator of a person’s possible sway. This in itself, should exclude Charles Savarin for consideration for presidency. I wont delve too deeply into this gentleman’s sordid political history, dating back to Eugenia Charles’s freedom party, but he has seemingly been hell bent on attaining power, at times yodelling for his supper. Its a wonder the man doesn’t walk around with a handkerchief to rub the brown off his nose. In Dno’s poll, Justice Brian Alleyne is a choice. As a past sitting judge he has had to exercise candor but with his past Freedom party affiliation, will the people of Dominica be willing to accept him? In my opinion he may not be perfect, but compared to Savarin, alas, he wears a halo. Dominicans should put party affiliations aside and recognize, Savarin is quite possibly the worst choice for the esteemed position, second only to a previous nominee who thankfully declined. The public should cast aside political affiliations and in unity refuse Savarin’s appointment.

    After the UWP bullied and threatened two candidates for the office of President… they now have someone with undeniable qualifications and the testicular fortitude to withstand biased their attacks in the person of Charles Savarin.

    Charles Savarin has a long and distinguished career in public service. He served with distinction under the Freedom Party Government of Eugenia Charles as our Ambassador to the European Union in Brussels. He represented for the Roseau Central Constituency during the dark days of the failed UWP government. He has further served with distinction as a Minister under the Labour Party Government. What more could one ask for from a candidate for the office of President of the Commonwealth of Dominica.

    Mr. Linton, I agree with you 2000% that Charles Savrin should not be allowed to serve as president of Dominica. His track record speaks for itself and if Mr. Skerrit had any respect for Dominica, he would have fired him the same day Savrin called for the boycott of Breezee Mart.

    However mr. Linton, I do believe Dominicans pray a lot and our prayers are being answered. Skerrit is on his way out and the nomination of Charles savrin will cause that to happen sooner than we think. It was Savrin that caused the down fall of the DLP in the 80’s and it will be that same Savrin that will cause Skerrit to go tumbling down. Mark my words guys and DNO, please save this comment so that when it happens we could ALL remember it was foretold.

      People of D’ica head to Londendary Sunday and on Monday in larger number than 1979 we hit the streets to demonstrate no violence a peaceful demonstration untill Savarin is discarded Enough is enough and this is what the people of D’ica should uinderstand Skerrit is going to change the Constitution once Savarin gets in that office so we have to stop them lets rise up against the nomiee and the Gvot because this is not a laughing matter.
      And this is for the UWP why is it that you dont submit you choice for President DNO have a poll running which ask the question we are responding to it it’s time that we hear from UWP who their nomiee is do dont sit back and allowing the PM to disgrace the people and the Island any further you said change is a must then we are willing to join with that slogan high and lifted up but we want you to step it up we cannot turn back now.
      Mr.Linton tell us what will be the next move in this matter we are waiting because you know PM dont want to follow the Constitution whatsoever so we aready to dedfend the law of the land.

    labour the party, can only be removed from power not via the ballot, but by constant and intense pressure which will cause them to fragment, and ministers resigning one by one, before the crash.

    DNO I am posing a few questions to the people of Portsmouth. Can I?

    I’d like to ask the people of Portsmouth who it was that refuse to allow food and supplies for Portsmouth unto barges where people like my dad, was waiting in desperation for food and much needed supplies for the people of Portsmouth.

    Ask the people of Portsmouth who it was that referred to them as Black Caribs. A term that is down right racist and demeaning to the Kalinago People.

    I wonder if Ian douglas have the answers to the two questions

    I hope that this is OK DNO

    OH HELL NO TO CHARLO!!!!!! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    Ok…time to mobilize and put boots on the ground. To labor I say, “Time UP, Pack UP”. Savrin shut down the country for 47 days until the objectives were achieved so we have no issues protesting until our objectives are achieved. Skerro is just being vindictive and displaying his dictatorial qualities.

    Mr. PM we gave you a job and we are ready to take it back. We are NOT prepared to serve you because we elected you to serve US.Dont try that nonsense like we are servants and you are the master because MASA DAY is done! You are now taking our kindness for weakness/ stupidity and that is one of the greatest insults you have hurled towards us. We will show you what we mean by saying “Change Must Come” and the time to begin the process is now. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

      Boss in 1979 everybody supported Saverin move it was the PEOPLE that called for that action Saverin only facilitated it as the leader of the biggest union…. What is your other issue with Saverin? Do you know he served for 14 years representing us at Brussels? Do you know he won two consecutive elections, 1995 and 2000 and held various Ministerial positions including Foreign affairs?

      Stop dwelling on the pass we are in 2013 for crying out loud!!!!!

        @Joe, you must be joking. Charles Savrin won his seat in 2000 elections? If my memory serves me right, in the 2000 elections the DFP only won in the Soufriere and Colihault constituencies and to the best of my knowledge it was Prevost that won the Roseau Constituency. I am also not sure about Savrin representing Dominica in Brussels for 14 yrs. I know he was there during the reign of Mamo but he was fired by Mamo so I am not sure about that 14 year stuff.

    why are dominicans so tame?

    why would they not stop a pending dictatorship from happening.

    One thing Labour can be proud of they have brought massive chaos,poverty,corruption,lies,cunning aspects to their governance while in office..

    i feel ashamed that labour has brought dominica that low.

    if the citizens of dominica we stern this regime would fall easily, but their lack lustre wait and see approach, endorses dominica as being the poorest in the eastern caribbean,thus unattractive to investors…

    labour is evil and wicked!

    So essentially in ur argument you saying he was against Labour Party and now he is a memeber of that same party right??? And then you say he would not be able to live above the political fray???

    To speak the truth i would just let it be but what Linton is saying is true; not even S himself wants Charlo but he wants to show off his power and stick it to UWP and even his own party followers because they too are not in agreement. when all you finish is Workers that like problem. Poor us.
