Dominicans are expected to vote for a new government within the next 100 days.
Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit made the announcement at a candidate launch in Laplaine on Sunday. Mr. Skerrit said the Dominica Labour Party had all systems in place, ready to contest the next polls.
“Get your calendars out and check within 100 days for elections in Dominica!” Mr. Skerrit declared to the crowd of DLP supporters.
Elections are constitutionally due in Dominica by May 2020.
Meantime, newly launched candidate for Laplaine Kent Edwards has plans for poverty eradication and employment creation within the constituency. Edwards says one way of spurring growth is through the development of the agriculture sector.
