Prime Minister Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit has once again restated that the upcoming general election will be his last as leader of the Dominica Labour Party. His intention is to give way to new talent outlooks and energy in the Dominica Labour Party (DLP)
He made this assertion during a political rally held in Antigua over the weekend.
“This evening ladies and gentlemen we introduced to you some of the new faces in our line-up of the Dominica Labour Party. We recognize that the task ahead will be long and will be tough. We wanted to ensure that there is a much needed transition to new ideas and new talents and new energies. I have already made it very clear that this will be my last election as leader of the party. The transition is starting now and next term around it will continue with persons such as myself,” he said.
He went on to emphasize to his supporters that while he will no longer be leader, he will not neglect the party.
“No one is leaving the Dominica Labour Party and the Dominica Labour party is certainly not turning its back on anyone, there is plenty work to be done and there is place for every Labourite in the house of labour,” the PM stated.
