The upcoming election will determine Dominica’s fate for the next 20-30 years.
That’s the view of Ian Douglas, Parliamentary Representative for the Portsmouth constituency.
Speaking on Kairi’s Heng on Wednesday, Douglas deemed the upcoming election critical to Dominica’s future.
This comes after Kelver Darroux, outgoing MP for the St. Joseph constituency, referred to the upcoming elections as a “battle” in June, and called for unity to secure a fifth term in office for the DLP.
Douglas also expressed concern for youth at the polls, who did not experience the political reign of the United Worker’s Party from 1995- 2000.
Meantime, Citizens have been assured that Government will give attention to all applications for housing assistance in due time.
Speaking on Kairi’s Hot Topics Wednesday, Douglas said it is difficult to assist all applicants in a short period of time, and asked persons to be patient.
Douglas reaffirmed Government’s commitment to the development of people’s lives, and stressed that assistance programs are non- political.
