Following Victory in the General Election
December 18, 2009
Fellow Dominicans, friends and well wishers…To God be the glory…Great things he hath done!
We have come to the end of a necessary, but arduous process of electing a new administration, to manage the affairs of government for the next five years.
I am grateful, but humbled, that you have once again reposed your confidence in the Dominica Labour Party.
On behalf of the candidates of the Dominica Labour Party, and also on behalf of the officers and members of that great institution, I would like to thank you, most sincerely, for your vote of confidence and endorsement.
I wish, first, to congratulate the first time Parliamentary Representatives-in-Waiting; those who ran as candidates of the Dominica Labour Party, as well as those elected on the ticket of the United Workers Party. I look forward to your able contributions in Parliament, and also to your servicing the needs of your respective constituencies.
At the end of the last Parliament, we bid farewell to several retiring Parl Reps. I am satisfied this evening that their places in Parliament will be aptly taken and filled by the new members.
