Dominica’s Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has made it clear that he is standing firm even as the opposition United Workers Party (UWP) is heaping pressure on him to resign.
With its slogan, “Skerrit must go,” the UWP held two public meetings on Thursday as it continued its campaign, saying the Prime Minister must go on allegations of corrupt practices. However, Skerrit is not budging.
Speaking at a town hall meeting in St. Joseph on Thursday night Skerrit noted that he will go on to continue raising the money required to bring a better way of life for Dominicans.
He also seems convinced that his country will still need him until he is 65 – another 20 years.
