“We are ready to be your bridge to the next Dominica government” – APP interim president

Interim President of the Alternative People’s Party (APP), Tahira Blanchard, said the party is ready to work for a better, fairer, and brighter future for every Dominican.

The APP is Dominica’s newest political party.

Blanchard’s statement coincides with the official launch, on Monday, 11th May 2020, of the party’s website.

“A centre-right political movement built on firm democratic principles. We are ready to work for a better, fairer, and brighter future for every Dominican: rolling up our sleeves and empowering grassroots voters,” she said

Blanchard said the APP’s focus is on women and youth in politics.

“Nevertheless,” she added, “here at APP, we embrace everyone, with no prejudice and across party lines.”

“If you are a citizen of the Commonwealth of Dominica, rest assured that there is a place for you in the APP family,” Blanchard stated and called for people “to explore our social media platforms, peruse our plans and tell us what you think, as we are always ready and willing to engage in a meaningful discussion.”

The APP interim president added that the party was hopeful that people “will eventually help to fuel the movement as a supporter, volunteer or even a full-fledged member,” but she also maintained that as a party that believes in democracy, the APP expects people to oppose those objectives which they believe should be opposed.

“Let us agree or disagree with the oneness of purpose, as we can all agree that it is time to transform the electoral political traditions of the island for the better,” she said.

Blanchard said the journey now begins in this “new era of representation” in Dominica and, “we are ready to be your bridge to the next Dominican government.”

According to Blanchard, the public will have an opportunity to meet the party’s first executive body, and leaders, at its first Annual Convention, to be held in Glanvillia, Portsmouth, carded for Sunday, May 16, 2021 from 2pm.

The other members of the APP interim team are Kendra Stephen, Sharon Vidal and Sherlyn Sabaroche.

The APP was formed in December 2019, with its mission being to marshal forces together into a strong coalition which will work together for the good of the entire Dominican community – at home and abroad.

Its aim is to be that bridge which connects the people to their government, and APP pledges to always be that alternative force for good, for growth, and for the preservation of the people’s promise. Moreover, APP intends to hold on to our fundamental principles, both in and out of government, as the party which is always going to be positively different.

APP invites the public to visit their website at https://appdominica.com/ and invites persons to contact them at appdominica@gmail.com or Facebook @ Alternative Peoples’ Party, to get more information.

The APP interim team: (l-r) Sherlyn Sabaroche – Administrative Assistant, Tahira Blanchard – President, Kendra Stephen – Finances and Secretariat and Sharon Vidal – Women and Youth Outreach Executive

    Keep reading and read and research 😊 the bigger picture of what we talk about, which is the biggest concern the bigger failure of Skerrit and his incompetent failed Labour government.
    This appears to be a Skerrit journey and not one of the people of Dominica. Over 19 years Skerrit has taken us to the abyss of corruption, incompetence, a failed leader and an incompetent Labour government.
    This is 2020 and we need decent trusted competent professional United Workers Party UWP, led by Hon. Linton and his trusted UWP Team. Therefore my people please wake that we take back our Dominica ASAP from this inmature, corrupted failed Labour government and failed leadership under failed incompetent Skerrit.

    These woman are being judged on “looking young” on “being women.” Its obvious we are not giving them a fair chance. I agree more information is needed and I would advise that they hire a public relations officer. However, I commend them for putting themselves out there. Its rather difficult in Dominica to admit we want change. Its also hard to publicly say that we have allowed politics to divide us. Someone once told me she will stick with the devil she knows…that says a lot about the psyche of Dominican’s. I personally think that Lennox should step down and give the UWP party a fair chance. I also think the DLP needs a new leader. Leaders need to change to bring about new ideas and new directions. It is said that Politics is dirty business however, people make it dirty and corrupt. I support any party that is for the people…not just who vote for them. We need to do better as people. Bless day

        How do you trust a party that was caught red handed attempting to do the same thing that the current government has done. The current government have the mandate to do so. The opposition does not. But yet they’ve made attempts to do just that, which is unlawful. I do believe that we need an independent inquiry into the action of the present government. But the opposition party is not in a position of trust to be given the mandate to run this country. It has been proven too many times. If the current leader cared about UWP he would have understood that and step down as party leader. He is the only thing failing the party at present and this new party is going to prove that.

      You have expressed good sentiments, as to judgement and that they should be given a chance.When you say,”I agree more information is needed and I would advise that they hire a public relations officer” wow, are you saying that the information needed by Dominicans to make a decision regarding their ability to govern should be a controlled narrative by them with spin doctors. As to the change of Leadership within The DLP that is your opinion which you are entitled to, the people of Dominica are the ones to decide the change they want, and they have already spoken. When you say, “Someone once told me she will stick with the devil she knows…that says a lot about the psyche of Dominican’s ” do know how silly you are to use someone opinion or perception to make such judgement as to the psyche of Dominicans. What you expressed is your opinion that’s all it is. They are not facts.

I blame the leadership of UWP for all of this and for the hopeless mess Skerrit has us in at this time. I say so because before the stolen election they already knew Skerrit had everything in place to legally steal the election. Thank God we the Bishop, the evangelicals, the OECS, CARICOM and other groups calling for reform b4 the elections. We had our two members in Mr. James and Mr. Shillingford the election committee warning us that the thing was fraud and if contested Skerrit would steal the election. Yet they ignored all the warning signs and joined Skerrit in his fraudulent election only to slide to a hopeless 18/3, and to have Skerrit to victimize us more. If we had not contested Skerrit would have all 21 seats but no country would recognize his government. Yet after all this they still went and swear in their 3 seats. I ready for my blow

    Why does this Alternative People’s Party (APP) appear to be a reincarnation of the People’s Party Of Dominica (P-POD)? Even the two names appear to be a reconfiguration of each other.

    I continue to maintain that on a fair and level playing field, the UWP is the strongest single political party in Dominica.

    And to those who claim Lennox Linton is not a formidable leader, please explain why then has there been an unrelenting & ferocious campaign against Linton for all these years from the other side? After all, if Linton is so weak, wouldn’t it be in Skerrit’s best interest to make sure Lennox Linton remains as UWP leader for as long as possible?

    One doesn’t resort to using ‘fleets of loaded 10 wheeler dump trucks’ to try to crush or uproot a single blade of grass from ‘perceived’ loose soil. Skerrit & Co are absolutely terrified of Lennox Linton. Make no mistake – hence the use of all manner of tactics to try to remove him from the political scene.

        Skerrit Go. Out of our Dominica and government.

      With a name like “alternative people’s party” with only female members presented and with a stated mission statement about “women and youth” ….its already apparent that this group favours certain sectors of society over others. It already looks like they have no interest in addressing issues affecting men and boys: underperformance in school, fewer scholarship opportunities, unemployment, crime, mental illness etc just to name a few.

      I’m glad to see that others are picking up on this obvious bias already.
      Men and women must work together to build a country. Such obvious bias only serves to fragment this relationship and destabilize.

    After much thought, I’m of the firm opinion that the solution to Dominica’s economic and other woes is not more political fragmentation. The biggest obstacle to progress is the manipulation of all crucial public institutions and entities by Skerrit and his sycophants. The solution is fierce and sustained activism by the NGOs in the country. The business sector; the legal fraternity; the religious heads; the labour unions and the media need to grow a spine. Fear and cowardice by influential individuals and groups in any country has never accomplished anything. Collectively, with relentless determination, we can dispose of Skerrit and his twenty parasitic devotees. We should desire collectivism over individualism. One of the major problems in Dominica is that too many people want to be CHIEF. Any further political fragmentation of the country will only make Skerrit the beneficiary. Be wise not otherwise.

    Morning. This looks like a youth group to us.
    What is the background of these youthful people?
    My suggestion is, like many of us, we embraced a political party of our choice as teenagers that addresses the concept of socioeconomic development and it’s challenges. Dominica needs an overhaul and we need people who are mature with that level of knowledge of Socia-economic development.(Skerrit failed). The structures of our States financial resources/revenue is key. Focus on our young people (16- 30), that they take time to understand and comprehend political science. That is where this young incompetent Skerrit failed. He lacked leadership, not visionary but ” tou cho you flam, and in that is our Dominica, our economy our people our resources have been stained for over 20yrs now.
    Therefore, we need matured, intelligent, experienced, honest people to take our Dominica out of this failed, corrupted, Bobol, deceitful Incompetent Labour government.
    Welcome Hon Linton & UWP Team.

        All viewsexpress can do is criticize those that have a different opinion. Man I am a photo UWP too and I am convinced Linton was what we needed. However because of their stupidity in believing in a broken and fraud election process , Dominica and the UWp is left in a mess! Right now UWP is not in the bathroom, not in the window and not even in the shadow! So a new party is welcome and desperately needed. UWp knew the problems and should not have participated in the nonsense of Skerrit. After they saw the OECS army invaded Dominica on the eve of election, the UWp should just pull out from that election fraud of Skerrit and let Skerrit take all 21 seats. At least if they had done that no democratic government in the world would recognize them and as a result there would be hope for Dominica with sanction on Skerrit that would force them out especially with COVID-19! But you viewsexpress encouraged them to participate in the fraud called election that resulted in the mess we in now.

          This appears to be a Skerrit journey and not one of the people of Dominica. Over 19 years Skerrit has taken us to the abyss of corruption, incompetence, a failed leader and an incompetent Labour government.
          This is 2020 and we need decent trusted competent professional United Workers Party UWP, led by Hon. Linton and his trusted UWP Team. Therefore my people please wake that we take back our Dominica ASAP from this inmature, corrupted failed Labour government and failed leadership under failed incompetent Skerrit.

    I’m fedup if seeing and hearing of new party and believe that it’s some youth group they are runing. You all look immature to me and maybe without be any sound knowledge of the challenges that is and ahead of us.
    I’m wondering also if you all are aware of the failed structures and real challenges that is before us where we have seen, witness this Brutal Labour partyy, immature Prime Minister and his failed 20 we are if time ridiculous so called ministers.
    We and our Dominica are in a bad state with no concrete development, therefore the foundation in is dangerous and to start all over again we have to kick out this inmature, childish Skerrit and failed PM from our Dominica.
    We need change and a decent, mature political party, which is the United Workers Party UWP to take back our Dominica to have it well managed, no Bobol.
    We trust decent visionary leader, Hon. Lennox Linton and our decent UWP…

          Why don’t you go and speak to Skerrit. He’s not to blame for the lost jobs during this crisis but he most certainly is to blame for the lost jobs caused by the Ross departure and others as well. During the current crisis he most certainly is to blame for our empty state coffers and as such the inability of the state to help its citizens when it matters most. Having said that, nobody in DA does ask why the state coffers are completely dry. It’s only Lennox that makes his voice heard occasionally only to be cried down and called names by Skerrit, his cabal and those little red foot soldiers!! In December all you made your bed and now you complain that you have nightmares? Give me a break!

      Honestly speaking although I don’t like that online thing but now I staring to see faces behind that online, I must say I feel much better. One thing if they are for real they have to make themselves ready for the character attack of Skerrit and Austrie as well as supporters of UWP that feel they will just make Skerrit stronger. But as a non aligned person I believe for the good of Dominica, it is a very good move because in as much as I believe we need a change in Dominica I really don’t see a change coming with just two main parties. I for sure have not voted since 2005, when I voted for the DLP but it took me less t6 a term to realize that I made a mistake but unfortunately I didn’t think UWP was ready in 2009 under Ron and though I liked the things Linton stood for, I still didn’t feel they were a threat to Skerrit so I chose not to waste time to go vote. But with a new party with the names I am hearing and the faces I seeing, I feel much better this time. So I welcome them

You and others love mediocrity, you enjoy nepotism and paternalistic behaviors, you enjoy governments that are unaccountable, that not transparent, that is lawless, that lie and use a lie to cover up a lie and if you challenge me I can list at least the biggest twenty lies that Skerrit has lived since 2005 to now and that is out about 100 lies. But you Lin Clown seem to enjoy lies so it doh bother you. The UWP party executive through their upcoming convention will decide whether Linton stays or goes – unlike you who do not have a say on whether skerrit goes or stays simply because you guys have not had a convention for over 7 years. One man decides for people like you. Shame!!

We get too personal be when we seem politically incorrect and immature to observe the obvious immaturity in Skerrit and who has failed leading a failed to immature Political Party DLP for years. It’s all about Skerrit and not the people of Dominica nor focus on our ailing poverty Of Dominica.
        We need to up our government and development of our people on poverty and reduced to beggars and blind loyalty by this crippled incompetent failed Labour government headed by this failed incompetent Questionable immature Odd Skerrit.
        We need change, after 20 years in government Skerrit killed our agriculture. Skerrit knows absolutely nothing of Socioeconomic development much for the care and upliftment of our suffering jobless people.

      Same thing I was wandering. For the past 2 decades now there has been this complete feminist thrust at the expense of our young men.
      1) girls vastly outperforming boys at school…not important
      2) more than 2/3 of our graduates now are women, and it’s been this way for over 10 years now….not a problem.

      I find the name of this party very suspicious; sounds like they want to push a particular agenda into our society.

      No social experimenting on my little island please; it’s not everything we see in the bigger countries that we need to emulate. :-|

      One day, we will find ourselves with a generation of empowered and professional women; with very few professional men available.

      It’s already happening slowly….just compare the sexes of our university returnees. How many university graduates that return to Dominica now, are men?

      When that happens…they will ask “where are all the good men?”….and I will say: well that’s what happens when you blindly follow the trends imposed on us by bigger countries.

      Our boys need love and empowerment too.
      Women and men work together to build society. We cannot uplift one side and allow the other to fall by.
