(Dominica News Online) Eminent Caribbean Jurist, Sir Dennis Byron believes the regulatory framework for Dominica’s electoral process is old and needs modernization.
He was speaking during a virtual consultation organized by the Dominica Business Forum (DBF) on Thursday, June 17, 2021.
Sir Byron was selected by Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit to serve as a sole commissioner to advance efforts towards electoral reform in Dominica.
“My mandate became necessary because the electoral process had become so contentious, that the much needed reforms could not find consensus…,” he said. “The regulatory framework for the electoral process is old and it needs modernization.”
He said he is interested in using the best technology that is available to modernize the process.
