Is there really a viable alternative for the leadership of the country? There seems to be a growing question asked by many Dominicans, “If not Skerrit, then who?”. This question has become even more of a concern since the last parliamentary sitting and recent interview conducted with the Leader of the Opposition. Never before has the Opposition as a whole proven itself to be this unprepared to lead a country, to be an alternative, to be a government in waiting. For us at PPOD, it was obvious at the parliamentary…

Does Dominica lack common sense?

tdn radio blog contributor

by Claudine Williams No matter what current headlines are used to the catch attention of audiences, usually in essence the following text in the article or comments depict several things that indicate that there is an unhealthy atmosphere in Dominica. Unhealthy for our country and just as unhealthy for our people. I don’t want to use big words like “damaging” or “exploding”. I don’t even want to point out what the incidents or circumstances are; I don’t want to point to individuals either. It doesn’t make sense to rub things…

Gross Misuse of Taxpayers Money

tdn radio blog contributor

Contributor: Claudine Williams Dear supporters and opponents. The rift in our politics and society has deepened to the point where a legal counsel is hired to defend a man who claims to be a leader of a people. Hiring an attorney is not a sign of strength but rather evidence of weakness. It is important to note that, it is taxpayer’s money which is being spent on the hiring of lawyers whose quest is to turn our country into a place of divisive identity politics as it keeps taxpayers money…

Dominican Sons and Daughters

Contributor: Claudine Williams Dear Dominican Sons and Daughters, Given the series of events that have occurred over the last year concerning ambassadors, so-called trade representatives of Dominica, and Offshore Companies legally registered in Dominica, it is clear that this present administration is now morally bankrupt. Such action by the current regime is eroding our freedoms and it is not just up to the police initiate positive action, but all of us must share this responsibility. The police must realize that we are their brothers, sisters, and neighbours. We are all…

The CBI Programe – A Cessation Demand

Dear Mr. President, Now more than ever since 1979, the potential for far-reaching social and political upheaval has never been greater. The ruling political establishment of Dominica has become so entangled in the international web of intrigue and obscure dealing, that it is even hard for them to deny any links now. The People’s Party of Dominica (PPOD) wishes to address the issue of passport selling. We are completely opposed to the outright sale of Dominican passports for cash or kind. We fundamentally denounce any such program that bestows citizenship…

Dominica Continues to Strive Forth in 2017

Dear Dominican Brothers and Sisters, An old year, 2016, has been marred by a continuation of neglect for constitutional law by the ruling administration; an apparent gormandizing of meant-to-be state funds for personal use, particularly by those in the ruling party inner sanctum; and the age-old issue of non-transparency and ineffective accounting processes in government-run programs. Fortunately, that year is coming quickly to a close. We as Dominicans maintain a sense of buoyancy that 2017 will usher in much yearned for change and prosperity. Before we leap into 2017, let…
