Opposition leader says Government Ministers should not be made President, just to hide their financial affairs
Opposition leader Lennox Linton fears that a precedent has now been set, whereby any minister of government can suddenly be made President of Dominica at any time, based on current President Savarin’s direct ascension from Minister in the DLP Administration and straight to being made President of Dominica.
He says the Presidency is now becoming perceived to be possible safe haven, for politicians to avoid reporting their financial activities to the Integrity in Public Office commission.
Linton believes it is not inconceivable that Prime Minister Skerrit could be contemplating following this same path, and this needs to be stopped.
