ROSEAU, Dominica: Roosevelt Skerrit was on Monday sworn-in as Dominica's Prime Minister amid a street protest here by the opposition United Workers Party (UWP) who accused the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) of rigging the May 5 general election.

The DLP claimed 12 seats, including the Castle Bruce seat it gained by one vote in a recount on Friday, to retain power. The UWP collected eight seats while the other went to an independent candidate.

After Skerrit was sworn-in by President Dr Nicholas Liverpool, he promised to serve with "the highest sense of integrity and honesty".

"I will continue to represent the people of Dominica with the highest sense of integrity and honesty as we seek to bring prosperity to Dominica," he said.
