Talks of Grenada's election buzzing in Dominica
Dominica�s newest political Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM) says the arrogance of former Grenada Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell contributed to his defeat in the July 8 general elections.

The NDC of attorney at law Tillman Thomas defeated the ruling NNP winning eleven out of the fifteen seats up for grads.

The PDM leader Dr. William �Para� Riviere said Thursday that Mitchell lost touch with the people of Grenada.

�Mitchell himself adopted a style of governance based on arrogance, intolerance to criticism and lack of consultation with the people,� Riviere an attorney at law said.

He said the excessive campaign spending by the Keith Mitchell administration was not enough to woo voters in their corner.

�Million of dollars where handed out, Bennie Man and other such entertainers took to the stage almost nightly but the electors said enough is enough,� the aspiring prime minister noted.

�There attention was drawn to instances of blatant corrupt practices, they saw the regimes fall out of the countries resources to foreign investors and the felt the whip of government victimization,� he added.

The main opposition United Workers Party (UWP) has said the results of the Grenada election is proof that a wind of change is blowing across the region.

�Clearly the victory in Grenada by the opposition crystallizes that there is a wind of change in the Caribbean,� UWP leader Earl Williams said adding, �it is heading towards Dominica.�

He said Dominica is no different from the other islands which basis their campaigns based on allegations of corruption in public office.

�We can safely say that the same thing will happen in Dominica,� the opposition leader added.
