Leader of the Dominica Labour Party (DLP), Roosevelt Skerrit announced that he will contest the next general election because he is determined to defeat Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton and the United Workers Party (UWP). He made that announcement while delivering an address at a DLP meeting at St Joseph on Tuesday night.
According to Skerrit following the party’s win on December 8th 2014, with a fourth consecutive mandate, he had no intention of contesting the next general election. He says that decision has changed because he wants to defeat the UWP “one more time” since members of that party have made him angry, and he wants to punish them “for the wrong that they are doing to Dominica. I am predicting here in St. Joseph tonight, we will take back no less than four seats from them,” he stated.
