Britain acquired Dominica in 1763 from France and granted it independence in 1978. Within two years Dominica was being tyrannized by the corrupt Prime Minister Mary Eugenia Charles, who remained in power until 1987.

Dominica's most recent parliamentary election was on May 5, 2005. Voter turnout was 38,935 or 59%.
