Opposition Parties Refuse to Participate in Snap General Elections
The Dominica Freedom Party has responded to Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit’s decision to call snap general elections on December 6.
Leader of the Dominica Freedom Party Bernard Hurtault says the DFP will not contest the December 6 general elections as the party will not continue to validate a flawed election process.
He said despite not contesting the election the DFP will continue to fight to remove what the DFP considers as an unethical regime from office.
Meantime, the opposition parties in Dominica are considering Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit’s decision to call snap general elections on December 6 as an insult to the Dominican public and an abuse of his power.
A joint Press release from opposition political parties and civil society organizations including the National Joint Action Movement (NJAM), United Workers Party (UWP), and the Dominica Freedom Party (DFP), calls on Dominicans here and abroad to condemn this action by the prime minister.
According to the release, the opposition parties and civil society groups in Dominica will pursue all avenues including legal, international and other appropriate means, to allow common sense to prevail.
