High Court judge, Raulston Glasgow, has struck out all ten election petitions filed by the United Workers Party (UWP) challenging the results of the 2019 general elections in Dominica.

Justice Glasgow also awarded costs of 5 thousand dollars to the respondents.

The decision was handed down via Zoom on Wednesday.

Senior Counsel Anthony Astaphan led the case for the respondents.

Astaphan argues that the cases filed by the UWP were bad in law and the latest ruling should put to rest all accusations of an unfair election.

After the 2019 general election, the opposition United Workers Party (UWP) filed ten election petitions challenging the results in the constituencies of St. Joseph, Mahaut, Morne Jaune, La Plaine, Castle Bruce, Salybia, Roseau Valley, Roseau Central, Roseau South and Wesley.

The UWP has not commented on the matter but said it would consider issuing a press release.
