'the results reflect the collective will of the people who voted and that the election of 6 December 2022 was conducted in accordance with the laws of Dominica.'

15 of the 21 seats in the House of Assembly were contested at the election. No opposition candidates were nominated in the remaining 6 seats. Voter turnout was 31.6%. 11 men and 10 women were elected to the House of Assembly.
