THE Democratic Coalition Government for Advancement (DCGA) has welcomed its new member.

He is the newly elected Member of Parliament for South Choiseul Constituency Sammy Galo.

Galo’s decision to join the DCGA makes him the 39 member of the ruling government.

He attended his first Caucus meeting this week when he was greeted with congratulatory messages from members of the Caucus.

Deputy Chairman of Caucus Jackson Fiulaua told Galo that he used his wisdom in making the right decision to join the government.

“I join thousands of people in the country on behalf of the DCGA Caucus to congratulate you as the new MP for South Choiseul constituency,” Fiulaua stated.

He also encouraged the new MP to contribute to matters deliberated on during meetings, adding that the Caucus looks forward for the important contributions he will make during the course of Caucus meetings.

The Deputy Chairman of Caucus further encouraged Galo to seek advice and guidance from his colleague MPs, and make the assurance that Caucus stands ready to support him in any way.

Fiulaua reiterated that “togetherness as a government work towards the betterment of our people and our beloved country”.

Meanwhile, Galo said the motivating factor behind his decision to join the government is that at these uncertain times brought about by the COVID 19 pandemic, a stable government is important to navigate the nation through.

“I have full trust and confidence in the Prime Minister and DCGA – its policies and programs – and I look forward to participate in any of the government’s plans all in the best interest of our nation and people,” Galo stated.

Galo also acknowledged South Choiseul leaders- traditional and church leaders- for their support towards his successful election in the recent by- election.

He further pledged to work with Provincial Ward members in South Choiseul constituency to elevate the constituency to newer heights.

Galo was the son of former South Choiseul MP Robertson Galo, who lost the seat in an election petition case early last year.

At that time, Galo senior was the leader of the Independent Group in parliament.
