Judge denies application to postpone Dominica's general election

Dominica's High Court judge Justice Bernie Stephenson has ruled that the court has no jurisdiction to postpone the December 6 general election.
Justice Stephenson said elections are governed by the Constitution and the court cannot entertain the application.
She said an election petition would be the best option to settle the disputes.
In the application, seven Dominicans argued that the general election should not be held until the names of ineligible voters are removed from the list and all objections filed before November 19 are dealt with in accordance with the law.
