Edison wants government to “free up” the Electoral Commission

first_img Sharing is caring! Share UWP Leader, Hon. Edison JamesLeader of the United Workers Party (UWP) Edison James is calling on government to “free up” the Electoral Commission.James told a UWP meeting in Lagoon earlier this week that the Electoral Commission is being stifled by the ruling Dominica Labour Party.“We as a party, a government in waiting, commit ourselves to democratic reform to ensure that our major institutions maintain their independence as provided under our constitution. The Electoral Commission takes pride of place here. They are not independent. They should have an independence that will involve providing them with their own budget, that they cannot be held ransom by a government that has refused to provide the financing to bring about Voter ID cards and electoral reform,” he said.According to James, “we wish, we want and we must have a cleaning of the voters register”. He said the UWP are satisfied that the work since the elections of 2009 has raised the awareness of the people of Dominica for the need for electoral reform.“We think that we can change the strategy. We ask you to stay engaged and keep listening. We are not going to get what we want if you just stand by. We need your support,” James told party supporters.Dominica Vibes News Tweet LocalNews Edison wants government to “free up” the Electoral Commission by: – January 27, 2012center_img 27 Views   2 comments Share Sharelast_img
