The Government of Grenada and Prime Minister Dickon Mitchell congratulated PM Dr Roosevelt Skerrit and his Dominica Labour Party on a historic victory in the general elections and returned to Government.
“The unprecedented sixth term victory depicts the desire of the people of Dominica for continuity, especially against the backdrop of an increasingly uncertain global environment,” PM Mitchell said.
These wishes were poured on Prime Minister Skerrit after he claimed a landslide victory in the snap general election. This year, elections were not regular, as the highest number of candidates, i.e. 45, filed their nominations on November 18, 2022. PM Roosevelt Skerrit was unopposed from his constituency, along with five other DLP leaders.
