The Roseau Valley Constituency association of the United Workers Party (UWP), has elected attorney Ronald Charles, as its nominee to be the UWP’s candidate in the next general election.
Charles who is from Trafalgar, won overwhelmingly over the other contender, Wotten Waven resident, Lisa Marshal, at a meeting of the constituency association which was held on Sunday afternoon.
Dominica News Online learnt that initially there were several persons vying for the nomination. However, the number was reduced to two after some of the would-be candidates withdrew.
” What I would say is that it is with great humility to see that the Roseau Valley constituency association has nominated me as the potential candidate to represent the UWP. However, the party executive would then have to meet to endorse that nomination and therefore, there is still a lot of checks and balances that would have to be looked into, prior to me having any further comments or not.” Charles said when contacted by DNO.
He also thanked his opponent for the nomination, Lisa Marshal and the members of the UWP Roseau Valley constituency association for their support.
If the Charles becomes the UWP candidate for the Roseau Valley, he will have to contend with DLP incumbent in that constituency, Dr. Collin McIntyre, who displaced the UWP’s Norris Charles in the last general election.
