UPDATE: PM to call elections within 100 days

Skerrit speaking at the launch of Kent Edwards

The Dominica Labour party believes it has what it takes to win the next general elections and to show its confidence, its leader Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said within the next 100 days voters will go to the polls to prove just that.

Skerrit made the announcement during the official launch of Kent Edwards in La Plaine last night.

It is widely speculated that the prime minister will announce the official date when he launches the last candidate- his wife Melissa- in Roseau Central.

“The series of launches is coming to an end,” he said…And “I promised you in the Valley that I would tell you when I am going to launch Melissa Skerrit. But it’s not that date you want. It is the election date you want. I will say tonight and I certainly couldn’t have said this a few weeks ago. Elections will be held in the next 100 days. So you can do your maths,” Skerrit told his party supporters.

This statement was as much information on the election date that the Prime Minister gave,he then went on to heavily lambaste the United Workers Party candidates – all of them.

His first swipe was at the UWP Leader Lennox Linton who he claimed used “peoples” money to rebuild home in Morne Daniel following Hurricane Maria. “They Even raised money from you the ordinary people of Dominica. The money raised has gone into the mansion he lives in Morne Daniel”, he said.

Skerrit said he was criticized for building a home in Vielle Case but… “a leader of the Opposition who has not held a job for over twenty plus years rebuilds a mansion from the ravages from Hurricane Maria and no one in this country raises an eyebrow,” he said.

The Prime Minister said most-if not all- the candidate of the UWP are misfits, agreeing that the most popular candidate in the UWP camp is a youngster “who will lose his deposit against me in the Vielle Case Constituency”. The prime minister was talking about Clement Marcellin Jr.

The UWP he said has selected some “downright” bad candidates with many of them having ‘very unsavory characters”

“Sam Christian could not be a candidate for the DLP in 2020. Joshua Francis could not be…Vernie who is ashamed to be Dominican could not be….and I have not gotten yet to Salybia, the poor girl looks lost she cannot relate to half the people in the Carib Territory”.

The prime minister finished his speech by advising his followers that labour is a party of peace, “Let us promote peace and tranquility in our country” he said.

Responding to calls from the crowd in the final moments of his speech requesting the date for the launching of the Roseau central candidate, his wife Melissa Poponne Skerrit, he promised, “I will tell you soon”.

    Hello and good morning my people. Well if elections are in one hundred days then that means if will be at the end of January. I just spent two weeks in Dominica therefore I can’t come for independence or the creole fest and I really wanted to come for carnival. If elections are scheduled so close to carnival then I can’t come because I don’t want to be in this crazy drama. I don’t vote in Dominica or take political sides rather I want to visit my place of birth and fell safe to go anywhere. May the team with the best platform win and best of luck to my people.

    Those of you who are sitting back and just watching things unfold, you are not getting involved because you are now retired. I hear you saying “that Skerrit doh easy nuh”.
    I am here to tell you that you have to protest too. Today he is trying to force you to accept him in government, tomorrow he and his foreign friends will be deciding for you what religious beliefs you must have. Will you wait until then to fight? You have to fight this dictatorship now, in its infancy. Support Lennox and the UWP. We must remain free men and women in this country!

    Instead of talking about an election he should go on TV and explain to the Dominican people the Caribbean community UN, FBI and INTERPOL what he did with the missing money from the treasury. Is it in his personal bank accounts? Forget the election, he needs to remain in office till he explains whet he did with the money so he can be held to account.

    It obvious that the Honorable P.M. have selected amnesia. Do not forget his advice to the Poto Labour family to assault the UWP even at funerals. His comments are nonsensical and juvenile. A change is coming. Mr. Marcellen have no fair he is shaking in his boots.

    Mr PM, have you:

    1. Increased the Standard of living in Dominica?
    2. Have you improved working conditions for civil servants?
    3. Have you increased salaries for civil Servants?
    4. Have you placed Dominica on par with the rest of the OECS?
    5. Have you been prudent in the management of our resources?
    6. Have you tried improving growth engines of the country: tourism, agriculture, manufacturing?
    7. Have you, infrastructure wise, improved our Capital, Roseau and Portsmouth?
    8. Have you created an environment where unemployment decreases with real jobs?
    9. Have you become a millionaire overnight?
    10. Have you account for missing monies?

      The answer to all these questions is a resounding NO. That PM and his Ministers are useless. They ruined out little island financially and morally!

    Currently on vacation in D/ca and local life, wellness and the whole political scene is unbearable… it stinks. Things just seems to be chaotic with very little evidence of operating system structures in motion. It’s a bit of the BLIND leading the BLIND – uninformed and incompetent people in government and the private sector leading others who are similarly incapable.

    Mr Skerritt, you have over and over stepped out of line as a Pm over the years.. You continue to play games with Dominicans who unfortunately seems not to know better or just down right wicked.
    You forever promote disharmony n political tribalism in words n deeds
    You and your Rouge regime seem to have a liking for God but you all actions are opposite to God’s will. The one from laplaine said, he does not believe in Dreams, ” Did not God speak to David n Solomon through dreams? Saying dat one does not believe in dreams is surely ungodly..
    You continue to use the state resources to buy votes, very Evil practice
    You continue to See the worst in those who oppose you which is spiritually n psychologically unsettling
    You have failed to answer about the Money..
    You pay no regard to past leaders like Mamo, by saying you the best thing Dominica ever got.. Magway sa.. Wasn’t it the same Freedom party that got you out of your misery?
    God is God n He will always be God..

  15. No reform. No behaviour.
    October 14, 2019

    I tried to warn you Mr. Skerrit. You wouldn’t listen. You’re determined to use an inaccurate list of voters. What ever goes wrong in DA from today because of this is on you, you are responsible. I wash my hands.

        My friend now Skerrit gave us a 100days. He has to provide electoral office with monies to do the reform…………. because he knows he will not be allowed to have elections without electoral reform.

      That’s true all cannot be arrested because Dominica don’t have a location to accommodate all the people. Electoral Reform will never be done during this currant administration and I hope our people understand that statement uttered by the PM and he’s correct don’t expect him to give up a method that bring good to him, But to all of us Dominicans understand this to get Electoral Reform in place we all have to get up and put boots on the ground go out in massive numbers to VOTE to make the changes, one cannot say they are not voting without the Voting Cards and cleanse the voting list everyone should go out and cast their VOTE to be able to make the electoral changes that we all need, it can only be done with a new administration in place so Dominicans let all of us go out and VOTE to be able to make the changes, we have to do it it’s necessary for all of us to make the right decision, Dominica for Dominicans forward we go Vote for change.

Money distributed to so called friends from Upstairs office. (The latter we will not call names, but there are corriers out there who distribute money to those appears in need, from the failed Odd fellow on the top floor.
      We see it happen, obviously the Abusive Red Clinic has been on going for years now and these people who are poor are received are still in the sae state of poverty, unemployed, hungry, jobless and suffering under this failed corrupted Labour government an its leadership, who enjoy a hefty and happy nice salary. There is no programme that this failed idiotic PM and his blind irrespective followers accompany and tolerate this thievery and open Bobol of handouts. There is no development taking place in Dominica over 19 years now. Skerrit is a failure and he mist go. Go hoe and go dance your dance with Melina.

        You could never do the work that PM Skerrit is doing; so you need to stop scrutinizing him.

    Headline: PM to call elections in 100 days.

    However, PM says that he is confident of a victory and the Dominican people will prove that in the next 100 days.

    Headline should read, ” Dominicans to Vote in the next 100 days”

    If Skerrit calls elections without election reforms, and if there is turmoil in the country as a result, then it will be on him, because he would have made clear that he intends to steal the election.

    Those are the type of behavior from leadership that causes people, as the Haitians frequently does, to refuse to accept what they think is unfair. Let us hope the Haitians do not become involved in Dominica’s politics less they for get the Bahamas.

To outright reject the result is suspect and outright disrespectful to the people of Dominica, Red, Blue, Green, Black, or whatever you identify with!!

        But believe me I under your inclination towards violence. IT IS ALL ABOUT COOLOUT, is it not? If you lose the COOLOUT you are finished and you will do anything to keep it going.

        It is bullies like you who have enjoyed Dominica with your COOLOUT which you doh want to lose, while peaceful, passive, and loving Dominicans wondered when will they be able to provide for their children so they do not run right after graduation.

        $1.2 billions and reform are not too much for a Dominican to ask for. However, I understand your COOLOUT anger as expressed in your submission above.

Now he stood against Dominicans, who never settle for the best, always second best. Mr. Skerrit has proven to be the best in history. Let your vote speak for you. Not for me, not for Skerrit but, for my country. Double or nothing. We want Skerrit.

      My people read this nonsense: “Let your vote speak for you. Not for me, not for Skerrit but, for my country. Double or nothing. We want Skerrit.
      Skerrit is a failure, if you want him, go get him. But if he wns the state we see Dominica is in , is what we will see again if that failed Skerrit wins the election again. Mr Candis, try telling us in the past 19years where is the socio-economic development took place. Under this failed clown Skerrit, we no longer produce the following : 1. Bananas, 2, Grapefruits, 3) Provisions etc tec.
      All we have is a hidden, devious, corrupted sales o our passports to nefarious questionable people out there. What has this so called Skerrit do with our states money? We need to know. This man Skerrit is useless and has been for the past 19 years and he must Go, get Lost and get going. Go dance with Melissa, in Lagon. ..be reminded that the political bacchanal is over. Get lost Skerrit, yo have failed us.

      Really? This man has operated a govern in a black hole, COMPLETE DARKNESS. Compared to the nearby islands, Dominica is the worse in all spheres of economic performance and development. Here is the scorecard:
      ECONOMY- Abysmally FAILED
      AGRICULTURE- Completely FAILED
      TOURISM- Shamefully FAILED
      MANUFACTURING- Awfully FAILED
      INFRASTRUCTURAL DEVELOPMENT- Massively FAILED
      SMALL BUSINESSES- Appallingly FAILED
      Mr. Skerrit and his lap-tailed poodles have failed to deliver even a reasonable standard of living for 99% of the people. The Report Card says so. Time for them to GO!

      You are so candid , upi fail to say what it is, that has ben of concern to us.A man with many talents.??? Really…..Ohhhhh My God. Let us list the talents, for true:
      Thievery???
      1. Bin Bobol, that was denied until Hon Lennox Linton discovered your thievery theft and also we were told there was a conflict o interest because a family member up their Pennsylvania was used to assist n purchase it was understood. That is a blatant conflict of interest. It was then shouted out either by Skerrit, or the team he had, to ay that: “It was a mistake…” lol..lol…caught Skerrit with his pants down. that is why thievery hate Hon Linton, because he exposed their thievery. We have a failed immature joker Odd Minister who has ruined our country and killed our agrcututure and now have theses famers and their families as beggars to “Daddy Failed Skerrit. ” Shame on your Skerrit. You are not worth anything to be Prime Minister to lead our country. Skerrit you must go. Go to hell…go to hell…

    % stop making a fool of yourself. Whenever you come in power you will investigate and jail those people accountability for looting Dominica. So far we have seen that you are not believable why, because the DLP has been attracting larger crowds. We the people of Dominica, would like you to clearly articulate you plans forward for the betterment of our nation. Man up give us something constructive, so we all can see you as a visionary leader. The billions that are missing even your moderate supporters are skeptical about that! Lennox take on the leadership position that you are hoping to achieve, only your hard hard core supporters are believing this innuendo and myth.

      These are the ones that always up front by the stage, thats how they apply for their next begging loan at the red clinic….. “PM I was there wii, you doh see me, I was up front by the stage with a flag wii?”…. I come a for a cool out wii PM, and hold them two ripe fig I bring for you”….

      @ St Joe,……When I look at the DLP I see a party with an ideology, a domestic policy and a foreign policy very clearly defined as a post modern political party. This Party is led by an educated, courageous and experienced stateman with domestic, regional and international recognition as a Prime Minister and leader of a nation.
      Two universities have recognized him with doctorate degrees for achievement.
      His competence have led him to put Dominica first in the world with a Climate Resilience policy. First in a world of 225 nations with 8.5 million people.
      I will not even attempt to compare him to his opponents because it would be stupid.

      The DLP fought the white colonial masters for equal representative treatment for them to get title for there lands. Today they have representation in both central and in local government because the DLP see them like fellow Dominicans. Today they can be all they want to be, thanks to the interventions of the DLP. We are not going back to the 1950’s when we could only come to Roseau in the night. When we had nowhere to shop, go to school or hospital. We had no roads. We were prisoners in our own land.

    The Master of Corruption wants to defy the local, regional and international community and conduct general election before fair and sensible reforms to the electoral system are implemented. If most Dominicans stand idly by and allow this to happen then they deserve to live in eternal misery. The misleader and his snake-like choir should be unceremoniously kicked out of office. Dominica has occupied the last position in the sub-Caribbean under a supremely corrupt and dysfunctional quasi dictatorship for far too long.
    Something has to change to alter the fortunes of the impoverished. That CHANGE is the CHANGE of Leadership of the country. You can’t be voting for the same do-nothing government every five years and expect your life’s fortunes to improve. Get rid of the GIGANTIC OBSTACLE in your quest for a better life. The obstacle is Skerrit and his corrupt, malleable Apostles. Give them the boot.

That is being devious, theft, corrupted, shameful and other matters addressing an extremely failed immature Prime (Odd) Minister.

Red is the dangerous sign that we see as we drive thru the political signs down the roads, that originated from the states Prime Minister’s office which is a public office that is engaged to anyone, especially one who is decent as incoming Hon. Lennox Linton, Hon. Eddison James, Dame Eugenia Charles, and Hon LeBlanc. Great leaders
      Skerrit`s will not be featured in the Honourable names above. He, Skerrit has to earn it and therefore to repent first for the abuse that we have talked about. He has failed as Prime Minister. That hurt and still hurt us. It`s obvious following that this needs to be investigated, clinically that he, Skerrit will remember this abuse of states resources:1.The Bin Bobol, 2.The Fertilizer Bobol, 3.The Red Clinic Bobol, 4) Passport Bobol.

No. He has to launch Melissa in grand style using our tax dollars and on that night he will announce the date. Melissa will be “gravitated” and cleansed with Goya oil in mid November. Then he will desolve parliament and have elections before the 15th of December. The hundred day bluff is in an attpt to catch UWP pants down. I have news for him. UWP has been ready for over a year. Their pants are well fitted above the waist. None of them is of the elk of Registe. I hope the sister gets out of the closet before the elections. So Skerritt saying that elections will be in the next hundred days is no news. It is just redemption day for Dominica. If you take it down to the hundred days that’s just the number of days you have to run things in Dominica. We are counting down.

    Is it time for Dominica to remove that authority from a single man/woman? That is the authority to call a national election when ever he/she wishes! I submit that we need to revisit this archaic practice.

    I believe in adherence to democratic processes; the national election date must be fixed, however there should be some flexibility by allowing a seated government to call an election only after consultation with the opposition leader and parliament if there is going to be any deviation from the legislated election date.

    The value of this would be enormous (a) It would reduce days of low productivity because of political meetings, heaven knows that Dominica is in need to get as many full work days in the year as possible, (b) It would reduce the length of the election campaign and its attendant wastage, (c) It would allow for better planning and organisation, just to list a few.

    May I request that whoever wins the election tries to bring this most need legislation to…
