In light of the tropical wave which is expected to generate cloudiness with shower activity and possible isolated thunderstorms across most of the island chain within the next 24 hours, both the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) and the Opposition United Workers Party (UWP) have postponed their political rallies carded for Sunday July 12, 2019.

The Dominica Meteorological Service advised earlier this morning that another tropical wave over the Central Atlantic currently has a low chance of development and is projected to affect mainly the southern portion of the island chain by late Sunday into Monday.

As announced by the DLP, the official launch of the Roseau North constituency Candidate Hon. Joseph Isaac, has been postponed to Sunday July 21, due to a weather system that is expected to affect the island. Similarly, the Opposition has also followed the same steps and has announced the postponement of the launch of their La Plaine candidate Francisca Joseph.

“After having carefully considered the advice of the local weather experts and concerns for the safety and welfare of its supporters and the citizens of Dominica generally, a decision was taken to postpone the Eastern Zonal Rally carded for Sunday July 14th to next week Sunday, July 21st 2019, the party informed in a press release.
