A pre-election poll conducted between May 26 and June 16, 2019 in 14 constituencies favors the United Workers Party (UWP).
This is according to managing director of the Caribbean Association for Caribbean Advancement (CAPA) and political scientist Alex Bruno who released the finding on June 17, 2019 at a press conference held at the Prevo Cinemall.
“The DLP will probably not hold on to the majority if elections were called today,” he said. “There were times when respondents suggested, ‘yes I will vote for the Dominica Labour Party or United Workers Party,’ but in the same the question, when asked whether they think the DLP should remain in office for another five year term, the response was a resounding no.”
The main objective of the poll was to find out whether the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) which is the ruling party in the government of Dominica would have done well enough based on the people’s opinion to warrant a fifth (5th ) consecutive term in office. According to Bruno, overwhelmingly, the respondents said no.
The constituencies polled were Castle Bruce, Cottage, La Plaine, Mahaut, Morne Jaune, Petite Savanne, Portsmouth, Roseau Central, Roseau Valley, Salybia, St, Joseph, Soufriere, Vielle Case and Wesley.
