UWP looks to God for intervention in the country’s democracy

first_img Share Parliamentary Representative for the Roseau Central Constituency Hon. Norris Prevost at Wednesday’s protest.Dominica’s main opposition party, the United Workers Party (UWP) has said that after several attempts to protect and save Dominica’s democracy, they have decided to leave it up to god to intervene.Parliamentary representative for the Roseau Central Constituency, Honorable Norris Prevost, carrying a cross, accompanied by opposition leader Honorable Hector John and UWP Candidate for the Wesley constituency, Ezekiel Bazil, made their appearance at parliament on Wednesday, just as the President was being presented with the Guard of Honor.Mr Prevost says the cross signifies their call on God to intervene and save Dominica’s democracy from this Roosevelt Skerrit-led communist party.‘We are asking the Lord to help us and give us the strength to save our Dominica from the communist dictatorship that we are under. We are asking our Lord to help Dominicans to remove the corruption that is on top of us in government and we are asking for the help of the Lord and the people to ensure that we get Voter I.D Cards in Dominica so that we can have free and fair elections. Our people are suffering, our democracy is dying..’ says Prevost.Mr Prevost says the UWP Parliamentarians will not be attending Parliament, since they are not prepared to debate a budget which does not make provisions for voter I.D Cards and Electoral reform.Leader of the United Workers Party, Honorable Ronald Green says his party has been advocating for electoral reform for six years now and Wednesday’s budget presentation cannot be ‘business as usual’, since there are many unanswered questions.‘We have had serious fraudulent activity on December 18th, 2009, and since then we have made it clear that Dominican are calling for some mechanism that will ensure that we have free and fair elections in the future,’ stressed Green.Opposition Leader Honorable Hector John says while the Prime Minster has indicated that the government will soon be introducing National I.D Cards, there is big difference with these cards and the Voter I.D Cards that the UWP has been lobbying for.He pointed out again, that only the Electoral Commission has the right to issue the Voter I.D Cards.‘As a responsible parliamentary opposition party, we are calling for free and fair elections and if they have national I.D cards, we will not have this. With the national I.D card, anyone can have them to give out to anybody overseas. But with a Voter I.D Card you have to meet the requirements locally, and that’s what we’re asking for…’ says John.Dominica Vibes News LocalNewsPolitics UWP looks to God for intervention in the country’s democracy by: – June 29, 2011 Share Sharing is caring!center_img Tweet Share 94 Views   no discussionslast_img read more

Georgetown contingent seeks redemption

first_imgGuinness “Greatest of the Streets”…As preparations intensify for this weekend’s start of the Guinness “Greatest of the Streets” national play-offs, the excitement associated with the event has reached fever-pitch and fans are eagerly awaiting the commencement of play.The Guinness-sponsored street tournament, now in its ninth Edition, has become the most talked-about event in the shorter version of the game, and the organisers cognisant of this fact have been steadily looking at ways to improve the experience for spectators, while also seeking to increase the lucrative prize monies that are on offer.Georgetown teams have generally ruled the roost in the competition’s history, but Linden’s Dave & Celena All Stars ended that dominion last year and will no doubt be aiming to duplicate that performance to erase any lingering suspicion of a fluke.On the other hand, with Georgetown’s aura slightly tarnished, other zone winners will feel inspired by the Lindeners’ performance and raise their level of play as well to ensure that the trophy goes elsewhere.However, this could instigate the cadre of teams that has qualified to represent Georgetown to lift their game and the mere thought of the resulting rivalry is what could inspire strong turnout of the respective teams’ supporters.Bartica Zone winner Disconnection Crew, with their Brazilian connection have been touted to be the spoilers in this year’s competition, while the defending champs Dave & Celena All Stars, East Coast champions Uprising, and Berbice champions Trafalgar showed enough class to make the tournament interesting.As usual, West Front Road-Gold is Money, who are the reigning Georgetown champions, having beaten the most successful team in the tournament’s history, Sparta Boss in their zone final will also attempt to prove that their undoing of the Bosses was no fluke, while Sparta Boss will be looking to restore that imposing record that made them the most feared team in the format.With the provision of seating accommodation for fans, the organisers are predicting an even bigger turnout than previous years as they seek to broaden the diversity of the fanbase.“We are constantly reviewing past tournaments and we felt that seating accommodation was one of the areas that we needed to improve and fans will see an improvement in this area when the final is hosted at the National Gymnasium,” Guinness Brand Manager Lee Baptiste assured.Baptiste said they have every intention of making this year’s national play-offs as inclusive as possible and all the stops were being pulled out to ensure that the tournament’s legacy is protected and preserved.Last year saw the introduction of colourful uniforms and balls in keeping with the new trend seen internationally and this year promises to be no different.The tournament opens on July 27 at Pouderoyen Tarmac, West Demerara and then moves to Haslington Tarmac, East Coast Demerara on August 1, before the final showdown set for August 4 at the National Stadium.last_img read more
