DOMINICA – Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit has announced that General Secretary of the Dominica Labour Party (DLP), Senator Edward Registe, is government’s nominee for Deputy Speaker of the House of Assembly.

He made that announcement during an interview with state-owned DBS Radio on Monday night.

“It is the government’s intention to nominate Senator Edward Registe as the Deputy Speaker of the House of Assembly,” Skerrit said.

The Prime Minister noted that Registe has done enormous work for Dominica and the island’s young people.

“We believe that he is a young man who has demonstrated great skill, knowledge and appreciation and respect for the country,” he said. “Whose popularity really came from the National Youth Council as a vibrant representative of the young people of the country and who has done a tremendous amount of work for young people and the entire nation.”

Skerrit is confident that Registe will bring that same passion to the House of Assembly during debates and when he acts as Speaker.

“He will continue to demonstrate that level of discipline and seriousness to work which he has exhibited over his several years of public service,” the Prime Minister remarked.
