2. The Dominican Opposition Leader Rosie Douglas responding to allegations made by Prime Minister Edison James. With less than a week away from the general elections, Prime Minister James has used an address to the nation to allege there is a political-religious conspiracy against his ruling United Workers Party. The Prime Minister is alleging that Mr. Douglas and his Dominican Labour Party are affiliated with the Unification Church known as the Moonies and that they may be injecting funds in the Dominican Labour Party’s election campaign.
