Q95News – On the invitation of the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica, the Caribbean Community has mounted a CARICOM Electoral Observer Mission to monitor the election system and processes, as well as the conduct of the General Elections to be held on 18 December 2009.

The Observer Mission is led by Mr. Hensley Robinson, former Chief Elections Officer of Barbados. He is assisted by staff of the CARICOM Secretariat. The other members of the Observer Team are drawn from the CARICOM Member States of: Antigua and Barbuda; Barbados; Guyana; Jamaica; and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The CARICOM Electoral Observer Mission arrived in Dominica on 15 December 2009 and so far paid a courtesy call on the Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit and met the leadership of the Dominica Labour Party (DLP), United Workers Party (UWP), the Dominica Freedom Party (DFP) and the Media Workers Association of Dominica.

It expects to meet on today with the Dominica Electoral Commission, representatives of the People’s Democratic Movement (PDM), the Dominica Christian Council and Dominica Evangelical Association, the National Youth Council, the Dominica National Council of Women, the Dominica Bar Association and the Dominica Association of Industry and Commerce.

The CARICOM Electoral Observer Mission will visit polling locations in Dominica on elections day in order to monitor the electoral process, including the opening of the Poll, the voting process, the closing of the Poll and the counting of the ballots.

The CARICOM Electoral Observer Mission will issue a preliminary statement based on its observations and findings. A Report of the General Elections will be subsequently prepared and submitted to the Secretary-General of the Caribbean Community.
