Pierre Congratulates Skerrit After Dominica Elections


Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre has congratulated Dominica’s Roosevelt Skerrit and the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) following Tuesday’s elections.

“Victory for Labour in Dominica. Congratulations Comrade Roosevelt Skerrit and Team Dominica Labour Party,” Pierre wrote on Facebook.

The Dominica Labour Party (DLP) returned to power in Tuesday’s general election, which the opposition boycotted.

Twenty-one seats in the House of Assembly were up for grabs.

But the Electoral Office had said that voters would elect representatives for 15 constituencies after the main opposition parties – the United Workers Party (UWP) and the Dominica Freedom Party (DFP) – failed to nominate candidates.

As a result, the ruling DLP went into the election with several uncontested seats.

According to the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC), preliminary Electoral Office results showed Prime Minister Skerrit’s DLP emerging with 19 of the 21 seats.

Two independent candidates also won constituencies, the CMC said.

The Associated Press reported that the opposition UWP and the DFP rejected Tuesday’s election as they called for electoral reform, including a new voter list.

The news agency stated that Skerrit, 50,  first elected in 2004 , has said this will be his last term.

  1. skerret again? not mate some years ago they had a story on him about corruption thats why he always winning his seat

  2. Shameful what Skerrit did…….he failed to undertake the recommended electoral reform and instead called the election a year early.

  3. Dictorship and corruption. Pierre is grinning. Clearly this election was not about democracy yet Pierre is there enjoying the victory. The look on their faces says what they stand for.

  4. That’s right! So it must go all the time our preferred and shared values are the people’s choice…….a sea of Red across the region. The only thing missing now is Mosses

  5. If anything shows the utter moral corruption of this man Philip it has to be the sheer joy on his face interacting with Skerrit.
    Philip’s only happiness does not come from serving the people of St. Lucia but from winning elections and grasping power. He has been utterly ineffective as a Prime Minster as the country spirals into anarchy.
    I hear that Philip is “blue vex” that the citizens of St. Lucia are holding him accountable for the horrible decline in the internal security of the nation. With no notion of how to save the nation Philip walks around with his head clouded in confusion and his COLLEAGUES just waiting to take over from this clown.
    I saw earlier a video of the two white men shot in Soufriere. The one killed with blood running out into the ground and Peter holding his shoulder with the bullet wound. What the HELL have we become under this government?
    A Prime Minister should be grieved if even ONE citizen of his country is killed but this clown walks unconcerned as 70 have been killed in one year. Where is your empathy, your love, your strength as a MAN – you are simp, a fool and charlatan. My children walk this land of St. Lucia on fear because of your incompetence and ineptitude.

    And to think there are people in this country in their fortified homes with dogs and security still associating themselves with this clown show.
    This country needs a revolution of values and a willingness to call a spade a spade.

  6. Hon PM you appear to be very happy in that photo. Nevertheless, my colleagues can’t even smile in the department of nursing at SALCC. Smiling and being happy in that department is considered unprofessional. We are depressed in that department. We are being emotionally and mentally abused by the administration in the department of nursing at SALCC. Where is SALCC Board of Governors? Is the administration of the Nursing Department the most authorative figure at SALCC? We need help in that department. Also, we are of the view that all the lecturers will one day walk out of that department? Why? Because it has happened in the past. Please help up, please. Where are the women rights advocates? Please advocate for us while we are alive. Please. Please please.

  7. ……where was Chastanet empathy?? “This country need a revolution and willingness to call a spade a spade” Chu! Loud mouth; Cry your Blasted River nobody is hearing youuuuuuuuuu. “I hear that “Phillip” He is Prime Minister Pierre Hog Breath not your “Phillip” are we clear Bway. Your Massa Phillip is in England busy trying to keep House Nagore’s like you from running away.

  8. Seems like you are out of town too long. Before you write next time examin your intended result. People like you who sit on your high horse and talk rubbish about your fellow men selling out to the Big Daddy.
    What’s your contribution to fix the issue? How’s crime being dealt with in your neck of the woods?

  9. A new political dictator ship has been established in Dominica. Pierre needs to be monitored closely or else he might pull that shit. Election is due every five years but he might monitor the opposition and call it in three years. He will call it when he knows they are not ready. Dominica is right now under a dictatorship government. It might just happen in St.lucia with Pierre’s incompetence
