No Early Election says Dominica Prime Minister

According to media reports out of Dominica, the Prime Minister said that elections will be held on the constitutionally due date in 2014.

Skeritt has been asked to stand down on the grounds that he had dual citizenship – Dominica and France.

He has, nevertheless, been re-elected as leader and president of the DLP.

In January, the opposition, United Workers Party (UWP) filed several election petitions in court to challenge the results of the December 18, 2009 general elections, including one which claims that the country’s leader illegally contested the general elections since he held a French passport and was also a citizen of France.

Dominica’s constitution makes it clear that anyone seeking political office could not be a holder of another country’s citizenship at the time of elections, if that status was obtained after the age of twenty-one.
