In a statement yesterday, Prime Minister Houenipwela conveyed best wishes to both premiers on their election, on behalf of the SIDCC Government.
The Prime Minister said attaining a higher calling in the leadership hierarchy is no easy feat; as it requires confidence, maturity and the ability to show leadership through smooth and rough times.
“Your election victory is a reflection of the trust and confidence bestowed to you by your colleague provincial members and the people of Western and Choiseul provinces as a whole. For that, I sincerely congratulate you,” he said.
The Prime Minister said his Government is looking forward to working with both premiers and their new executives.
