The Electoral Reform Coalition (ERC) holds discussion on Electoral Reform

PRESS STATEMENT

In its efforts to continue to sensitize and educate the general public on the need for proper electoral reform in Dominica, aimed toward free and fair elections and protecting our democracy; the Electoral Reform Coalition (ERC) will convene a major public discussion to take place on Thursday 11th: January, 2024 at the Dominica Public Service Conference Room from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm.

The public town hall discussion will feature presentations on the major themes of Electoral Reform, Democracy, and Good Governance. 

The featured speaker will be Hon. Anil Roberts Opposition Senator in the Trinidad and Tobago Parliament, who will speak on Electoral Reform and Caribbean Democracy.

Various representatives of civil society, religious organizations, and political parties that comprise the ERC will make short presentations at the public discussion on specific subjects.

The public discussion comes just over one year after the sham elections held in Dominica marking the first anniversary of the ERC, which came about as a united front to oppose the holding of the snap election without the promised and anticipated electoral reforms.

The ERC is using this anniversary period to continue to defend and protect our democratic governance through sensitization and educational activities, hence the convening of this major public discussion which is much anticipated by the general public as a result of the featured presentation by Senator Anil Roberts who will provide a Caribbean perspective.

During his visit, Mr. Robers will also feature in a press conference organized by the ERC on Thursday 11th. January at 10:00 am at the Garraway Hotel.  Arrangements are being made for Courtesy Calls to be made to Her Excellency The President and The Speaker of the House of Assembly.  While here Mr. Roberts will hold private discussions with political parties, civil and religious organizations, and opposition parliamentarians.

The general public is invited to attend the public discussion on the 11th. January, 2024 from 6:30 pm at the Public Service Union conference room in order to guarantee its ultimate success.
