Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has called the election for the 6th of December 2019.
Parliament will be dissolved on the 6th of November. Nomination day will be Tuesday, 19th November 2019.
The announcement in itself could not have come as a shock to Dominicans given the prime minister’s previous announcement. However, the timing – at a Labour Party Got Talent event at Goodwill this evening – may have taken some by surprise.
