‘UWP did that to themselves’ – Peter Wickham; election was ‘stolen’ – Loftus Durand

Peter Wickham of CADRES

Regional Pollster, Peter Wickham – the man who predicted that undecided voters would determine which party is victorious at the December 6 polls – has said that despite predicting a win for the Dominica Labour Party (DLP), he never expected a fifth term government to do as well as the party did, taking 18 of the 21 seats.

However, the regional pollster who is the managing director of the Caribbean Development Research Services (CADRES), believes that the events of the last week leading up to election day were to the advantage of the Dominica Labour Party.

He said apart from the fact that the opposition United Workers Party (UWP) did not base their campaign on the pomp, flair and paraphernalia, the violence and protest did not work in their favour.

“The DLP campaign was better. But the UWP tried to demonize the prime minister and that didn’t work. The barricading of the roads, the violence which they blamed on the DLP refusing to implement electoral reform…the optic associated with that was horrible,” he said.

Wickham recalled that many people who came into Dominica who were not associated with the general elections were stuck at the airport.

“That was nonsense and Dominicans rejected that. The UWP wanted to bully Dominica into voting for them for the belief that if they didn’t there would be riot and chaos but clearly Dominicans were not sold on the idea,” he contended.

“The UWP did this to themselves”, he added.

Meantime, in response to vote-rigging claims, Wickham said there is no evidence that overseas voters are responsible for the results of the elections and used figures of 8000 suggested by UWP leader, Lennox Linton, compared to about 2,700 reported by DASPA CEO, Benoit Bardouille, to support his opinion.

He added that the absence of a voter ID does not alone demonstrate that the election was rigged.

“The UK doesn’t have one, the US does not have voter ID…You need to present evidence that people who were not properly identified or eligible to vote participated in the elections…I think the court would take it seriously but otherwise, it’s just talking…”, Wickham said. While it is true that in general the USA does not issue voter ID cards, ,the actual requirements vary from state to state, a form of ID is required to cast a vote.

All this comes as the Managing Director of the Caribbean Agency for Political Advancement (CAPA), Alex Bruno, has said that he will conduct a post-election poll to measure voter support for the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) and the UWP in the absence of overseas voters.

The results of a poll which Bruno conducted shortly before the election showed the UWP leading in 11 of the 12 constituencies polled.

He insists that the overseas voters influenced the outcome of the election in favour of the DLP.

CCM’s Loftus Durand

Leader of the Concerned Citizens Movement (CCM), Loftus Durand was even more blunt in his assessment of the 2019 election outcome stating that it was beyond doubt “stolen” by the Dominica Labour Party.

Durand did not mince words when he spoke during an interview on Observer Radio last week.

“When a process can be rigged right before your very eyes then those of us who believe in democracy, we cannot just roll over and pretend everything is ok,” he said.

He said there were many discrepancies during the election that cannot and should not be ignored.

“There are instances where people who are dead, persons voted in their names. At the end of the day, the number of people who descended on Dominican soil is alarming,” he stated.

Durand said he saw people in Dominica on the day of elections that he had not seen for 10 to 15 years.

According to the laws of Dominica, once your name is on the electors list you are eligible to vote. However, there is a residency requirement which prohibits anyone living out of Dominica for more than five consecutive years from voting.

Durand insists that his organization is non-partisan. However, he said he is willing to provide evidence to anyone or any party challenging the election in court.

“If they want the evidence, we can give it to them so justice can prevail in the rigged process that we call a general election. We had people at various polling stations, we know who came in to vote…we have all the evidence,” he said.

The CCM leader says despite claims by the election observers that the elections expressed the will of the people, many people were imported, names were duplicated and several Dominicans were bribed.

    There is no evidence 8,000 people came to Dominica to vote.There is no evidence 2,700 people came to Dominica to vote.There is evidence that UWP lost over 1,000 votes.There is evidence that in 2014 DLP received 23,421 votes,and in 2019 ,23,541.So where is the 8,000 or 2,700 coming in?UWP HABITUAL LIARS.

      Well madam Lin lol,,,lol Clown, I was at the Melville Hall airport I saw queuing up about seven (7)12 seater planes that took off after the corrupted Bobol DLP planed scheme under Skerrit. The Election was staged managed as a Bobolistic scheme because Skerrit was and is scared of Hon. Linton that if UWP under decent Linton had won, there would have been Acton taken from the first day to set up an inquiry to investigate th thievery and Bobol of the election. The question is , where did all this money come from to accommodate all these people fare and also to accommodate and transport them to and fro the airport. The devil is at work and we need to understand that this DLP is a failed government under the guise of this failed Skerrit and his acolytes who ate doomed and gloomed into his weird corrupted election.
      Our Dominica is desperately in need of decent government, that we work to ensure that every child goes to school, becomes well educated to take over the countries management.

    It’s so sad when you listen to a young man like lofty who chose to lie because of losing Linton. Alex Bruno who doesn’t know anything about polling and Peter Wickam who I think isn’t totally correct with voter id cards in the US. That overseas voters is just utter rubbish because more persons who came to vote I know voted for the UWP on tickets paid for by the DLP. So I don’t think the overseas voters played any part in a resounding victory by the DLP. The UWP ran a losing campaign based on 1.2 billion without any evidence and violence on our streets. Dominica has always been a peaceful country and what the UWP did days leading up to the Elections left a stain and we can never forget. I suggest UWP change the Leader and the name of the party. UWP buried themselves once and for all. Shame

    Peter Wickham is a Barbadian and I just don’t understand what the Hell he wants or trying to protect in Dominica. Barbados had elections just last year and the BLP won 30/0 and Peter Wickham was relatively quiet, so what the hell he wants in our politics? Why is he trying to disturbilize our poor country, with more of our money going to Barbados on a monthly basis than what is spent in Dominica? Is it because he thinks of us as BLACK fools he trying to see if he will not create a civil war in Dominica? I don’t think Dominic has any damn person whose last name is Wickham and therefore I call on the man to SHUT UP and get out of our politics! At the end of the day we are one small island, where everyone knows each other and most of us a blood related to one another and, at the end of the day we will solve our problem. So according to Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, I say to Peter Wickham “Go to hell go to hell” our problem in Dominica ” is NOT his damn business”

    What happened in Dominica has demonstrated that a paradigm shift has occurred in Caribbean politics, and it is has become clear that poor people’s children can no longer successfully enter into politics and expect to win.

    But along with that shift will come a lot of dissatisfaction and ultimately political and social unrest.

    And the laissez fiare, bourgeois creating, dictator supporting, not inventing anything, out stretched hand receiving welfare from Caribbean governments, University of the West Indies, which continues to perpetuate their MASTERS desires, sit back and apparently does not allow discuss; but will be at the forefront when Caribbean Patriots will eventually wake up and present a challenge to this new political paradigm that seems to be taking hold in the Caribbean.

    And I can make a comfortable prediction that, according to what the Chinese are doing in Jamaica, they are behind this new paradigm, because like in Africa, they know black leaders are just greedy.

    Sadly, all the prospective presented are correct. I doubt there is a rational person in Dominica who would argue that there wasn’t massive treating; which is illegal. Cool outs, transportation of overseas voters whether 2,700 or 8.000 could and did impact the election results. Properly targeted, 2,700 imported voters could influence the elections in certain constituencies. It wouldn’t impact the popular vote, but make the difference in the number of seats. The opposition did a reasonably good job convincing the public it had moved from a protest party, to a reasonable alternative. That all changed in the last week of the elections. The violence was a definite turn off to undecided voters.
    The UWP needs to recognize this failure. Some of the tactics employed bordered on acts of terrorism. Lennox, your brother Brian is a bigger turn off to voters then Tony Astaphan.

Like it was Lennox and the UWP calling on people and gathering people and urging people themselves to do that. many people involved hold NO allegiance to any party and support neither Skerrit Nor Lennox, but because they stood up for their rights, all involved are being labelled as Workers who were ordered by Lennox. After this ;ast election, i see how absolutely foolish Dominicans are. In truth we have recieved the leader we deserve, because he will continue to use the country and its resources to further enrich himself, then go on the pulpit and cry about how we are a poor nation. when we ask why certain thing cant improve he will continue to say there is no money. Then he will make promises to do things all of a sudden because he put money aside, then in another breath say is somebody else that will do it for us and pay for it. Dominica is doomed.

      Casio, i don’t know what part of your anatomy your head was buried in during the election campaign, for you to come now and say that people unfairly accusing the opposition for the lawlessness and violence on our streets by sections of the UWP supporters like you.
      I hate to remind you that on all occasions the UWP did not only support these actions, they came out in the media actually owning it and orchestrating it and always made sure these videos were circulated on social media to give the impression that law and order had broken down in DA and begging for Americans and British forces to come and invade our country. I think it is time now for the likes of you to remove your head from your lower orifice and accept the fact that your party’s negative campaigning was what cost them the election. Stop blaming overseas voters for the capitulation of your party at the polls. Overseas voters have a right to vote. They should be even given the choice of a postal vote.

    Sorry Peter, I agree with much of your argument but the U.S does have and use voter I’d cards. Unfortunately, it is not a solution by itself as it has and is currently been abused by White Supremacists to keep some Black voters away. Just one example: closing down some rural dept of motor vehicles- dmv offices in some states they control in order to make it difficult for poorer Black people to get drivers license for instance, and it has worked in many areas. So, even that too can be abused.

So, Mr. Wickman please be advised and recognised what it is we have witnessed and have endure for over 19 years under this failed highly incompetent Skerrit and corrupted (Bobol) Labour government.

    Wickham is wrong when he says the U.S. has no voter ID requirements. U.S. voters have voter cards and must present a valid photo ID before voting. Without that photo ID, provisional ballots will be given and will only be counted if the signatures on the ballots match signatures on the voter cards.

      Mr. Wickman is accurate in his statement that there is no Voter ID cards in most state, there is a voter registration card which does not have a picture. I have been working a a Chief Election Judge for over 16 years and in my state the only time a voter is asked for ID is when at check in they are listed as voted, which sometimes happen with Seniors and Juniors with the same first and last names are registered with the same address. This sometimes happen because the Election Clerk processes in wrong voter; in that instance the voter is given a Provisional Ballot which will be counted within 21 days of the election. Note that the results on the night of elections are unofficial but is generally clear indication of the winner. Mr. Wickman is also accurate in his statement that UWP is responsible for their own undoing, they pandered to those least likely to vote with their antics. Diaspora also had a minuscule impact on the results less than 3000 voters travel to DA to vote.

      ADMIN: The law varies from State to State.

The only time a voter is asked for ID is if they are listed as already voted, not registered at the precinct, or their identity is challenged by an observer. If any of these instances should occur the voter is asked for ID and issued a Provisional Paper Ballot which will be counted at a later date.

        It can be argued and has been argued, that on most instances this was and attempt at voter suppression, because these states have a high number of disenfranchised voters, who for one reason or another are not able to get these IDs, i.e. – they cannot afford to pay for the IDs. The IDs are not free.

      One can vote in the State of New Jersey without any ID or Voters card.

    Wickham you and your organisation have very little credibility. If you will answer this question I will add or subtract a little from the little you have. Were you one in the full time employ of the Dominica labor party? You asert that the UK does not have voter ID. That’s true. Have you ever heard of the allegations levied here in England? Have you ever heard of a dead man voting in England? Further according to you it would seem that Dominica is the only country in earth that has had protest in the lead up to the elections. This is a statement meant to keep the electorate in the dark. Sven if it was 2700 people who showed up to vote what difference does it make if they were not eligible. One intelligible voter makes the process tainted. It is people like you who put aside professionalism and morals for a few dollars which has our society in the ruins that it is. Your assessment is nothing more than a man singing for more food after he has gotten his supper

    In the interest of truth, justice and peace, Mr. Durand should be subpoenaed to present his evidence that “many people were imported, names were duplicated and several Dominicans were bribed” and that “there are instances where people who are dead, persons voted in their names.” After all, he said “we have all the evidence”

    Sometimes what would seem to be a waste of the Court’s time might be just what the Court system needs to set a ground breaking precedent and case study for the law books.
