The people of the Carib Territory have voted overwhelmingly for change.
Garnet Joseph has been elected as the new Carib Chief to run the affairs of the council for the next five years, winning by over 400 votes.
Joseph told Dominica News Online that he will focus on health, education and respect for Council members in the Territory.
“Right now I am excited and overwhelmed but after the excitement there is a lot of work to be done. I want to focus on education. Education is essential to the youth of the Carib Territory. Once you educate your people, they can use that education to gain employment. When I take office I also want to focus on working together with the people in the council and ensure that we work together as one family," he said.
A motorcade is currently ongoing in the territory to celebrate Joseph's victory in the election, where he soundly defeated the outgoing chief Charles Williams.
Attempts to reach Williams on the matter proved futile.
Four candidates contested the elections: Garnet Joseph, Owen Prince, Carib Chief Charles Williams and Judith Fredrick.
