After almost an entire day of recounting in the Castle Bruce constituency Vibes News has received on the ground confirmation that the Dominica Labour Party candidate, Octavia Alfred has been confirmed the winner.

Alfred was initially declared victorious after preliminary counts last night, but shortly after the results shifted in favour of  United Workers Party Candidate, Ernie Jno Finn.  Allegedly, it was discovered that the shift occurred as a result of discrepancies in communicating the results.

However, following several recounts today in the presence of the candidates, lawyers and observers the seat was declared 808 – 842 in favour of Alfred.

This confirms the 18 – 3 win of the DLP in the 2019 general elections.
