General Election Results - 8 December 2014

On 8 December 2014 Dominicans went to the poll to elect 21 Representatives of the House of Assembly to run affairs of state for the next five years.

The unicameral Parliament of Dominica, the House of Assembly, is composed of 21 elected Representatives, in single-member constituencies through a fisr-past-the-post system. Of the remaining eleven members, nine are appointed by the Head of State and two - the Speaker and the Attorney General - are ex-officio. The normal duration of the legislature is 5 years.

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit announced the election date on 5 November 2014 and Nomination Day was held on 19 November. Under Dominica's electoral system, the Prime Minister has the authority to call elections at any time and is only required to give a minimum of twenty-five days notice.

Prime Minister Skerrit called on voters' continuing support, promising to transform the country into a "peaceful and just society". The DLP pledged to reduce the poverty rate from the current 28% to 10-15% by 2020. The UWP leader promised annual economic growth of 5-7% and the creation of 5,000 sustainable jobs within the first three years in office.

The Dominica Labor Party (DLP) led by Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit won a fourth consecutive term, including three under his premiership. It took 15 of the 21 directly elected seats.  The United Workers' Party (UWP), led by the Lennox Linton, doubled its share to six.

Voter turnout was 57.45%.
