    We know will be there. Welcome to the big top circus! Ringling Bros. and Pure Barnum & Bailey business. Savarin really serves no purpose. Once he is out, we know a bigger clown will want to take his seat. The thing is that seat of the president has less power than the one he already occupies. Maybe they will make J.I. president while he runs another 2 terms and enjoys the last spoils.

    What I would like to know is who is invited to that dinner. That is last minute news. Only special persons are invited in advance? What if there are persons who would like to come out and meet other figures in society?

    I would suggest that the day the British get rid of the monarchy, Dominica should get rid of the position of the president.

      Whereas Dominica is considered a republic democracy or, shall I say a democratic republic. I don’t see the need for a president, and a prime minister, the presidency is a useless ceremonial position reserved for old washed up party, especially the dominant ruling party.

      Don’t be surprise to see Labor win the Election, and Roosevelt becomes the next president for life!

      What we need is the election of a President: and in this case I reference South Africa, rather than the United States which are basically the same.

      The president of South Africa is the head of state and head of government of the Republic of South Africa. The president heads the executive branch of the Government of South Africa and is the commander-in-chief of the South African National Defense Force.
      In any event the position should be an elected one and not a ceremonial appointment as in Dominica, Trinidad, and Guyana!

    Why does this man keep on pretending that he is on the side of all Dominicans and being a general ‘good-doer’? The man is Skerrits largest and most trusted puppet.

    Bigger Boss there is no need for any fundraiser, you can easily give up one (1) years salary of the free easy peoples money you have enjoyed over the years and that won’t even dent a hole in your big fat belly.

    Dominica’s next President is Carissa Etienne whether Ibo or Francisco- Dog like it or not.Francisco when a bill is brought before the house it has to be debated read 3 times.After it is read 3 times and supported by the majority of elected members,it is then taken to the President to be signed into law.The President must sign,that is his JOB,or get fired.

    Charles, you are just a token in a ceremonial position!

    Your protocol is simple to sign your name to any bit of paper Roosevelt command you to sign, be it a tabled law, or anything crooked Roosevelt want your signature on.

    you have to chose your words carefully otherwise the corrupted crook might kick you to the side of the street.

    You seems to have become very vocal these these days, you appear to be overwhelm by fear of Roosevelt, on the other hand I see a political ploy, in that you are pretend you are talking out in the interest of the people, when you know you are powerless to get anything accomplish in your powerless capacity!

    All good things must come to an end!

    The biggest contribution that Mr. Charles Saved in could make to Dominica is to abruptly resign his post as president. Complete waste of time and resources.
