UWP TEAM Dominica Executive endorses Opposition Leader Lennox Linton’s call for the DLP Government to immediately give Certificates of Title to all Dominicans who were given houses & apartment units
The Executive of the United Workers Party (UWP) TEAM Dominica fully supports and endorses the call made by Parliamentary Opposition Leader Hon Lennox Linton, for Prime Minister Skerrit to direct functionaries within the Government tospeedily complete all processes involved in the preparation of Certificates of Title with respect to houses and apartment units that were allocated to individuals across the country by the DLP Government. Further, that the said recipients be issued with their individual Certificates of Title, and thereby regularize and legitimize their ownership of the allocated houses or apartments. He suggested that all necessary preparations be made to ensure the Certificates of Title are completed and issued expeditiously.
This call is being made notwithstanding the seemingly discriminative selection processes employed in past housing allocations. Being mindful that the Constitutional responsibility for non-discriminative governance in the affairs of State in Dominica rests squarely with the Cabinet of Ministers, the Executive of UWP recommends that a Public Housing Allocation Committee be appointed to administer a non-discriminative selection process for future housing and apartment allocations.
Further, that the names of the people appointed to serve on the Public Housing Allocation Committee as well as the housing selection and allocation criteria be made public, so as to bring about semblances of fairness and equity in the allocation processes.
