SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Dominica’s Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit is expected to remain leader of the eastern Caribbean island after snap general elections that the main opposition party and its supporters boycotted. Twenty-one of 32 seats in the House of Assembly were up for grabs in Tuesday’s voting, with several automatically going to Skerrit’s Dominica Labor Party since the opposition parties did not submit candidates. The remaining nine members are chosen by the assembly or the president and two other members are ex-officio, held by the speaker and attorney general. As of late Tuesday, Skerrit’s party had won 15 seats, according to preliminary results released by Dominica’s electoral office.
