Featured Dominicans to vote in General elections on December 6
On December 6, 2019 Dominicans will go to the polls to elect a new government. Dominica's Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, on Tuesday night announced the date for the election at a Dominica Labour Party (DLP) event at Goodwill.

He told supporters of his Dominica Labour Party at a public meeting that Parliament would be dissolved on Wednesday November 6, while Nomination Day will be November 19.

Mr. Skerrit, who is seeking to become the first politician in Dominica to win four consecutive general elections, called for voters to ensure the campaign is conducted in an atmosphere of civility and peace.

His main challenge will be the United Workers Party, headed by Opposition Leader Lennox Linton.

Over the past year the DLP and the opposition United Workers Party (UWP) have been actively campaigning for the election constitutionally due in May 2020.

The announcement of the date for the election puts Dominica in uncharted territory since the UWP has stated many times that there will not be an election in Dominica without electoral reform- that is, the cleansing of the voters list and the issuance of voter identification cards.

Skerrit told supporters that he has a clear plan for continued growth and development

“I think the time is right for you to decide.

Not voting is the same as voting for the wrong person,” he told supporters.
