PRESS RELEASE – In a rare departure from its stated position to never interfere in the internal politics of other nations in the Caribbean region, the leader of Dominica’s United Workers Party (UWP) Lennox Linton, has come in for high praise from the Lucian People’s Movement (LPM) for his courageous decision to speak out against allegations of sexual favour in the politics of his homeland.

According to the leader of the LPM, Therold Prudent, “The issue of sexual favours in Caribbean politics is a discussion which the heads of all responsible and self-respecting political organisations throughout the region should have with the rank and file of their membership and the citizens of their respective nations as a whole.

“For decades, we have ignored the prevalence of such demeaning behaviour towards women and have virtually allowed government ministers and politicians in general to employ the trappings of their offices to exploit the social and economic vulnerability of young women throughout the Caribbean region without any serious public admonition or rebuke.”

“The problem with Caribbean politics,” states Prudent “is that it has had a tendency to attract men who are interested in sleeping with as many women as possible instead of viewing their entry into politics as a God-given opportunity to radically improve the lives of the people who have become greatly disadvantaged as a direct result of their socioeconomic circumstances.

“However, the problem is made even worse when you have so-called diehard supporters who are willing to defend at all cost, and shamelessly cover for, the men in their parties who have a history of sexually exploiting women.”

Prudent also states that “this business of sexual exploitation, which has been a part of the fabric of Caribbean politics for so long, and in which some Caribbean politicians are secretly, and in some cases publicly, allowed to keep scorecards of their exploits, must come to an end.”

  1. Tell me are not the women responsible for their bodies? Are they being raped by those politicians? Women must stand up for their self respect.If they do not accede to the request there will be no sexual exploitation.But those so called politicians who are talking about it now in opposition believe me will not be any better in office.

    • If these politicians who are in opposition are current living a life that does not seek to exploit women for sexual favour then we have very little to fear from them in power.
      STOP MAKING EXCUSE FOR THE SICK ONES!

  4. @ en rouge linton did not call the women prostitutes but stated that the ministers are prostituting the women. Look up the meaning of prostitution and you will see that it means "the act or practice of engaging in sexual intercourse for money" so tell me why a woman has to go to a minister for assistance and that minister responds to her give me a hug, come sit on me, let's go out first in order to get the assistance

    • I expect nothing better from you, you after all is an acolyte of the same policies which has caused dominica economy to be the smallest in our region. The same policies of overtax smoke and mirrors, nepotism which is quickly ruining this country. Maybe you benefit from the status quo so of course you will spread lies in its defence.
