Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has once again refuted claims of early elections in Dominica.
The Prime Minister was addressing a gathering at a ceremony to mark the signing of the contracts for the construction of the Newtown Primary school.
He said, “For those who are speculating about election; how they see Skerrit in Portsmouth, he was in Capuchin, he was in Loubiere, he was in Silver Lake, he was in Colihaut, he was in College and he was in Dublanc, I am the Prime Minister of Dominica, I don’t have to go only to Vieille Case my constituency, I can go anywhere I want at any time.”
The Prime Minister stated further that he is simply meeting people, hearing from them and hearing their concerns while trying to address them.
He noted “I never write the date of elections down. So nobody can find it anywhere but certainly I have not been thinking about it, there are more pressing issues confronting the country to focus on than to focus on elections but whenever it is called I am ready.”
Some people have been speculating that the Prime Minister has been running a silent campaign particularly in underprivileged communities, in order to gain votes in the next general election.
The election is constitutionally due in 2015.
