This country’s Governor General Dame Susan Dougan, has encouraged Prime Minister Hon. Dr Ralph Gonsalves to reach out to the New Democratic Party (NDP) as his Unity Labour Party (ULP) moves into an unprecedented fifth term.
“It’s going to be challenging and I also urge you to reach out to the NDP because the popular votes have spoken and there is a clear message,” The Governor General told the Prime Minister last Saturday during the swearing ceremony.
In her address, Dame Susan Dougan said she sees it as important for all of us as citizens to move on.
The Governor General also thanked the electoral office for what she considers a well-run election and one that shows a democratic process, “we can be proud of.”
