The UWP has recommended “urgent” implementation of electoral reforms in key aspects

The United Workers Party (UWP) has recommended what they are calling “urgent” implementation of reforms in key aspects that will “save Dominica from the pitfalls of a defective electoral system.”

Leader of the Opposition Lennox Linton outlined ways that he thinks free and fair elections can be conducted.

Some of these include the enforcement of the rule of law, provisions against bribery, treating, impersonation, illegal voting and election offenses in general.

“We recommend lawful facilitation of registered, eligible voters living overseas to vote in general elections in Dominica,” Linton told a press conference held last week.

Other suggestions included fair media access for the opposition in terms of news coverage of all state-owned media, a campaign finance reform, an accurate register of voters and voter ID cards.

“We have a responsibility to reform our electoral system, not to deform it and we continue to advocate in that regard”, he said

UWP has maintained that there were voting irregularities during the elections and has accused the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) of stealing the elections.

DLP won by a margin of 15 seats (18-3), therefore the opposition has petitioned the court, seeking to have the election results invalidated in ten constituencies including Castle Bruce, La Plaine, Wesley, Roseau Central, and Roseau South among others.

Linton said given the gross misconduct of elections officials and ruling party manipulation of the electoral process UWP is confident that the court will agree with the illegalities of the election results.

The delegates’ conference of the UWP is scheduled for November 2020 where the leadership of the party will be decided.

      Sybil says SAME OLD ,SAME OLD NONESENSE, Try a new line papa.
      It`s hilarious and you appear to be politically ……or just blind loyalty and your thoughts that are not in the interest of our Dominica but your failed lies within the your failed incompetent Odd PM Skerrit. Now, go read, go research over the past 19 years and growing the absolute abuse and corruption that you are in denial about, but it is the highly professional UWP trusted team that you go after. We at the Financial Centre knows of Skerrit`s failure, immaturity and not sufficiently quality to administer and account our states money and resources. So Sybil where do you stand with all this debar, corruption, deceitfulness taking place in our poverty stricken Island. Sybil go ask Skerrit to account for our money that we tax payers have contributed to. It is our damn money and not Skerrit`s money that has and continues to be abused. Skerrit get the hell out of our government, you are a failure. You have failed. Go away.

    “If the election was not fair why would DLP let you win your seat”@wallace hussey

    Wallace, that is a good observation! Why would PM Skerrit let Linton remain in Parliament for another 5 years, if he had the power not to do so? Why would he allow the “Lugay” guy to get the seat against Joseph Isaac?

    I see too many questions that will be left unanswered from the UWP–they will lose everything; they might as well settle down and look into the future to see what they can produce to convince Dominicans that they can be a ruling government–they are nowhere near that convincing tactic; with that substanceless approach which they continue to present to the people.

      Shut up you fake hypocritical false Christian!
      Roosevelt did not cause or allow Lennox to win his seat in Marigot; the people of Marigot voted for Lennox. 

      They want progress in the country, therefore they will not sell their soul body and mind to Roosevelt for a few dollars, like the idiots in Wesley who sold their soul for some goat-water and rum.

      Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

      I knew there were some dumb can’t read people in Wesley, never thought they so stupid, that me cousin who does not associate with them under normal circumstances; very pumps and selfish could have bought them all with some goat meat and rum.

      Then; one of Lennox own cousin in New Jersey, (dem boys) in NJ call him out of his name “Dam A..” man doh can read; but him in New Jersey distributing tickets to Dominican welfare recipients to go home and vote.

      This guy is a fool; if I say his name I might be shot.

      Fools like him Roosevelt use to distribute tickets.

          Man bites dog, Telemaque has no reading comprehension whatsoever.

          That is why he always goes off-topic in his responses. He doesn’t understand what I wrote, that is the reason he quickly rushed to write:

          “Roosevelt did not cause or allow Lennox to win his seat in Marigot; the people of Marigot voted for Lennox”. Where did I say that?

          Also, you are talking about him, as a nasty individual; well he is much more than that, maybe DNO won’t print it if I tell you how much worse he is. Just don’t go arguing with him in a private conversation–good Lord!

          If that man has any degrees as he claims to have 4, they are the degrees of the worse and ugliest mentality in the world; “nasty lies” and “extreme exaggeration” is one of them.

          He doesn’t understand anything in the bible, he is like people who can do certain things without being trained for that work. He speaks what he hears from certain persons, claiming it as his own. I know that very well

        “If you are so educated tell us why UWP LOST 1,163 votes in the last election.?” Because like other elections you, your corrupted Labour company are political liars, deceitful, abuse states funds, operated a begging bowl for our struggling people called the “Red Clinic”. Is that not shameful Madam blind clown Lin? Really, who the hell are you and when last you contributed anything meaningful for your Dominica, that your failed Skerrit has reduced to begging, poverty, handouts etc. Why don`t you go after Skerrit and ask him why is it he has not created employment for our struggling people? Because he is politically idiotic, knows nothing of what we refer to as “Socio-Economic” development but has reduced himself and his intelligence (if he has any) to operate the Red Cininc, Fertilizer Bobol and Passport Bobol scams. Our people need help. Where has all sales of passport money gone to? Skerrit is a fake. He and his family are ok in USA, he has our people suffering in bondage…

          If you are saying that the reason Linton lost that number of voters because they went to the “Red Clinic”, you are saying that your counterparts are also “greedy” for choosing to receive money against accepting their faithful savior by standing up with him–or else what is your point?

          At least we know that the “Red Clinic” is in operation; but do you remember that your savior promised to give every household $25 000.00 and $10 000 to civil servants who unfairly lost their jobs? How fulfilling does this promise sound to you; far more for people who voted for a governing body over their Nation?

In other words, even with flown and busses and shipped in voters, these constituencies unanimously will vote anti labour. Just like how in the 80’s when all DLP could get was portsmouth and grandbay. it wasnt that Mamo and eddison “let” them have those places, it was that unanimoulsy, the people there were anti DFP and UWP.

Two disciplined Prime Ministers who served us well, ACCOUNTED for our states money, no bobol, corruption in selling passports and under mamo and her trusted Freedom Cabinet knew exactly how our funds were well administered and accounted for.

      The problem with people like you is that you do not have the intelligence to think for yourself, you lack cognition; hence, you are unable to think cognitively.

      Electoral reform means elections  will be harder to steal. Everyone knows that the election of December, last was not free and fair, it was stolen.

      When that happens the same old wast of time clowns remain in power trying to fit a square peg into a round hole with no result. Roosevelt is prime minister for how long, yet there is no significant change in the country during his tenure.

      So, he gives away houses, but where are the industries?Where are the jobs?There is a reason why in the United States presidents only serve two terms!

      If you are doing an experiment to find some, and for fifty years you are in R&D, without any fundamental result, that would mean you are doing something wrong; hence, unless you change your theory and methods, you will never get a result.

Please do not be a blind follower. I almost got to that level and ran away from baby Skerrit in the early days as PM, because he came in immature, lacks knowledge of socio economic development, even failed to capture the level of poverty in our Dominica which is the same to today as he killed our farmers jobs and agriculture and now have our suffering and struggling people fighting to feed their children and families and you all out there hailing that fool Skerrit who has reduced our people to begging and suffering. Skerrit has no jobs to offer, go look around Dominica, where are the jobs, were is the Development, and all you people want to compare failed Skerrit with decent intellectual Hon. Lennox Linton?

        One ignorant person boast on DNO that “Dominica is labor country.”

        …..people like that are the ones who believe in a name “labor” not understanding it’s only the name of a political party which serves no significant purpose in their life’s.

        The stupid people say “I am working hard; I laboring so I voting labor!

        Dominicans are not educated politically, the comments written above I heard way back when I was a little boy, that foolishness was conveyed and taught to our people by E.

        One one would have thought that such stupid way of thinking would have diminished, or totally eradicated as the older peasants die.

        It is so disappointing that the youths of the country are also brainwashed to believe that the name Labor Party is a magic wand, therefore without a labor party Dominica will not exists.

        In science, there is a true theory that when chickens are hatched, if the first contact they have is something that’s not a chicken, as in the experiment where they saw a human first, hence the chicks followed the human around thinking they followed a mother hen.

        The youths of Dominica are brainwashed that their life depends on Labor, they were not born into prosperity, they met their parent struggling, depending on others for handouts, and so they believe that is a normal life.

        They believe it is normal to take handouts form Roosevelt.

        How do we bring a brainwashed person to see reality?

    UWP should have not contested the elections. This was aiding unfair elections. They should have no nomination and then no elections….Skerrit wanted all 21. He should have it and Dominican would see what time of the year it is. Elections over a month now…no parliament sitting…no talk of international airport…no talk of Marigot hospital…no talk of continuing PMH (they open a half job just before elections)…no talk of public officers increase…no talk to not one development, but yet still he opens new embassy where it suits him. Dominican like it so…it sweet…we like it so.

    Good Observation Hon Linton and UP Team:
    “Leader of the Opposition Lennox Linton outlined ways that he thinks free and fair elections can be conducted.” Lets read and focus on Dominica.
    “Some of them includes the enforcement of the rule of law, provisions against bribery, treating, impersonation, illegal voting and election offenses in general.
    “We recommend lawful facilitation of registered, eligible voters living overseas to vote in general elections in Dominica,” Linton told a press conference held last week.”
    Key to stop this political bribery by this failed Labour government are:
    1. Rule of law, 2. Provisions against bribery, 3.Treating, 4.Impersonation, 5.illegal voting and 6.election offenses in general.
    “UWP has maintained that there were voting irregularities during the elections and has accused the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) of stealing the elections.”
    So True. No one must respect and recognised this fake, highly corrupted, devious, failed, incompetent devious…

    I am one who likes to have things make sense to me. It is clear what equal access to state media means, so to is cleansing of the voters’ list and campaign finance reform, but what the hell is “ lawful facilitation of registered, eligible voters living overseas to vote in general elections in Dominica?” Are we going to allow them to vote absentee or are we going to set up polling stations where they live? I say so because it is already established that facilitating their travels to our homeland is bribery therefore, I assume we can’t be speaking about that. I am also bewildered because we should not be talking about facilitating them to vote since they do not live in Dominica and do not breathe the air there. We also heard that it is heartless for people who live overseas to come in vote for a cruel regime and go back to their ham and leave Dominicans living at home to suffer. UWP find your policy position and hold fast to it. By the way I do not support overseas voters. Not fear

    For a decade and more now citizens of Dominica, a sister CARICOM Island, have been pleading for the very same Reforms, but those leaders would not convince DLP Govt In fact they all facilitated another Election in Dominica with no Clean list and No use of voter ID cards.
