Justice Raulston Glasgow High Court judge, Raulston Glasgow, has struck out all ten election petitions filed by the United Workers Party (UWP) challenging the results of the 2o14 general elections in Dominica.
Justice Glasgow also awarded cost of 5 thousand dollars to the respondents.
The decision was handed down via Zoom earlier today.
After the 2019 general election, the opposition United Workers Party (UWP) filed ten election petitions challenging the results in the constituencies of St. Joseph, Mahaut, Morne Jaune, La Plaine, Castle Bruce, Salybia, Roseau Valley, Roseau Central, Roseau South and Wesley.
The UWP’s challenge is based on the party’s belief that there were numerous voting irregularities during the 2019 general elections in Dominica and consequently, they have insisted that the elections were not free and fair.
However, the Dominica Labour Party claimed that the petitions had no merit and asked the Court to throw them out.
