Attorney General, Levi Peter advises the United Workers Party to focus on working with the elected government to implement electoral reform, rather than challenging the 2019 General Elections in court.

Leader of the United Workers Party, Lennox Linton has announced that he will be taking the matter to court saying that he does not recognize the DLP government.

At the party event earlier this week, Linton said his party has no choice but to take the matter to court and continue the protest.

The Hon Attorney General, Levi Peter says Linton and the UWP should change track.

“The Opposition forces should be taking up the Prime Minister in the indication that he gave in his address and swearing in that he intended to engage with the leader of the Opposition towards seeking to secure appropriate electoral reforms and other actions that would lead to the benefit of Dominica,” he advised.

“I would strongly urge that that be pursued, at least give that an opportunity and if that fails then maybe you would be more justified to take alternative measures,” Peter says”but in current circumstance where you have such an emphatic victory to use all sorts of slurs, innuendos, accusations and allegations against individuals and organizations totally unsupported by any credible evidence it is not in the best interest of Dominica.”

He concluded by urging parties involved in such interests to desist.
