Dominica's President-elect defends post
2013-10-02 08:31:16 | (0 Comments)
Dominica's President-elect, Charles Savarin, has defended his election even as Opposition Leader Hector John said he would snub the Head of State and boycott all functions officiated by him.
Savarin, who is expected to be sworn in later this week, was elected by the Dominican parliament by a 19-0 margin after opposition legislators boycotted the event on Monday.
However, the 70-year-old former trade unionist and diplomat says contrary to the arguments by the opposition, his election, was in keeping with the provisions outlined in the Dominican Constitution.
He regarded his election to the largely ceremonial post as a continuation of his public service.
