Attorney dismiss calls for election reform
A noted attorney in Dominica dismissed calls by opposition parties for the government to reform the electoral process before the next general elections due in 2010.
The main opposition United Workers Party and Dominica Freedom Party have written letters to the Electoral Commission, and the Prime Minister asking for changes to the current electoral process.
They want a new voter registration list, international election monitors and voter identification cards.
However, senior counsel Anthony Astaphan has dismissed the calls.
Mr. Astaphan is also insisting that there is no need for election monitors in Dominica.
