United Workers Party Considers Its Options

Leader of the United Workers Party (UWP) Lennox Linton has said his party is considering its options in the wake of the December 8 elections which he declared to be stolen.

Linton, who spoke on The Hot Seat on Q95 Wednesday morning, promised that the UWP will make an appropriate decision on the way forward.

The UWP won six of the 21 seats in Parliament in the December 8 General Elections, following widespread bribery and other electoral irregularities in addition to an inexplicably lavish $30m campaign conducted by the Dominica Labour Party (DLP).

Explaining that the UWP has to be careful in determining its follow-up actions to the election, Linton promised a disciplined, methodical approach toward finding the right solutions.

He revealed that his party is in discussion with its lawyers to determine the feasibility of filing relevant petitions.

While the party is aware of certain misdemeanors, it must be able to build a compelling case of bribery and illegal interference for the court, he explained.

The UWP has 21 days from the date of the election to file a petition.
