Prime Minister Skerrit announced last night that general elections will be held on December 6, 2002.

Skerrit said that he asked the President to dissolve the current parliament effective immediately.

Nomination day will be November 18th.

“We cannot take chances with the future of this country,” Skerrit declared during an address to the nation. “The Dominica Labour Party must continue to be the beacon of hope. It must be the option for those who wish to see our country progress.”

“With that in mind,” he continued, “I shall lead a new-look Dominica Labour Party into fresh general elections that will be held at the soonest possible time. I want for the year 2023 to begin with a fresh mandate, given to a fresh Labour team, to commence the work of building post-COVID Dominica.”

The Dominica Labour Party team will reveal a new slate of candidates on Tuesday November 8.

Skerrit’s DLP won an unprecedented fifth term in the 2019 elections. The DLP won 18 seats with the United Workers Party winning the remaining three seats.
