Cabral Douglas, is the second son of the late Prime Minister of Dominica Rosie Douglas.

He graduated from Concordia University in Montreal with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science.

He subsequently obtained his bachelors of law (LLB) from City University (Inns of Court School of Law) in London. After working as a solicitor in London for three years, he moved to Sydney Australian where he worked as an in house lawyer in the mining/exploration sector.

Work Experience:

Douglas has returned to Dominica in 2013 and has since been involved in the rehabilitation of the town of Portsmouth, and intendeds to resume is legal career in Dominica in due course.

Since returning he has:

  • Rehabilitated the historic Arbeedee Cinema as the centre for cultural expression in the North.
  • Brought investors to Portsmouth to evaluate various investment opportunities.

  • Has contributed several media articles on national development.

Candidate's Perspective:

My campaign aims to appeal to disenfranchised labourites, those who have joined forces with the UWP out of frustration, and those who have given up on the political process. In full recognition of the fact that Portsmouth is the heart and soul of labour, I present myself as a unifying force within the labour movement, seeking to build on the principles of the late Rosie Douglas,” Cabral Douglas said. “A vote for Cabral is a vote for development.
