The Labour Party told political opponents and the Organization of American States not to interfere in the upcoming elections.
Dominica’s Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit accused the opposition Unified Workers Party (UWP) leader Lennox Linton of dishonest activities to win the elections to be held on December 6, when 21 members of the House of Assembly 21 will be chosen.
Among those personalities are the Pan American Health Organization director Carissa Etienne and the Secretary-General of the Caribbean Community (Caricom) Irwin LaRocque.
Skerrit said his country does not require help from the OAS Secretary-General Luis Almagro, who expressed his intention to send an electoral mission to the Caribbean island to oversee the elections.
Nevertheless, Dominica’s Foreign Affairs Minister Francine Baron on Saturday said the presence of OAS representatives is being studied and recalled that delegations from Caricom, the Commonwealth, the United Nations, and the Carter Center have already been invited to observe the polls.
PM Skerrit also urged Dominicans to remain calm as election day approaches, for there were incidents on Monday between the Police and some 200 protesters.
