PM Kamla congratulates London on THA election victory

File: PM Kamla Persad-Bissessar - "Let us put aside our political differences and embrace each other."
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar on Monday night acknowledged the victory of the People's National Movement (PNM) in the Tobago House of Assembly (THA) Election

In a brief official statement she said:

"The people have spoken.

"This has been a tough political battle and the choice for Tobago between change and a perpetuation of an administration which has been in place for twelve years. Tobagonians, in an overwhelming majority chose to stay with the Orville London led THA. And as I have always said, the voice of the people, is the voice of God.

"I wish to extend congratulations to Mr London and the PNM for the resounding victory secured at the THA polls.

"I assure Mr London and Tobagonians that the central government will work with the THA in the interest of developing Tobago for the benefit of all.

"To our own supporters I say do not despair, in the words of poet Maya Angelou, "while one may encounter many defeats, one must not be defeated." 

"There is much to be learnt from this and from which strong character can emerge. It is a time for introspection and resolve. A time to gather valuable insights that will serve us well in the months and years ahead.

"To each of you who worked tirelessly, I express my heartfelt gratitude. Somewhere down the road your efforts will bring you the returns and the victory will be sweeter. 

"But for now let us be mindful that the election is over. Let us put aside our political differences and embrace each other. All that matters now is the development of Tobago which we will work together to develop. May God bless our nation and may God bless you all."
