Clean up in Dominica begins ahead of Friday's elections

Clean up efforts have begun in Dominica ahead of the island's General Elections tomorrow.

Parts of the island have been gripped with protests and roadblocks this week as Opposition-led forces called for election reform.

Marigot, the community which has Opposition Leader Lennox Linton as its Member of Parliament, was the scene of many roadblocks that blocked traffic to and from the Douglas Charles International Airport. 

However, today, the Opposition leader urged residents to clear the roads to allow the passage of the ballot boxes needed for the elections tomorrow.

Tonight the island's two major parties, the Labour and United Workers' Party, will hold their respective rallies to urge citizens to cast votes in their favour when the population heads to the polls.
