ST. KITTS, NOVEMBER 2ND 2010 (CUOPM) – Bermuda’s newly-appointed Premier and Leader of the ruling Progressive Labour Party, the Hon. Pamela Cox, has been congratulated by St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas.
“Your long and distinguished career in the public realm, most recently as Deputy Premier, will undoubtedly serve you well as you undertake the new role of leader of the Government of Bermuda. As you charter this new course, and seek to improve the lives of the people of your beautiful country, may wisdom and patience abound with you. It is my hope that the initiatives and endeavours of your Cabinet will be brought to successful fruition, bringing about continued prosperity and growth for all citizens,” said Prime Minister Douglas, who met Cox during an official visit to Bermuda in May.
Dr. Douglas said his Government “looks forward to the building and strengthening of the special relationship that St. Kitts and Nevis and Bermuda share. Please be assured of our continued commitment to seek out new ways in which our two countries can partner together as we strive to bring about mutual benefit for all concerned.”
“I once again extend, on behalf of myself and the Government and People of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, sincere congratulations on this great achievement. In availing myself of the opportunity to extend to you the assurances of my highest consideration, please also accept best wishes for your personal well-being,” said Prime Minister Douglas.
Mrs. Paula Cox, a lawyer, is the fourth Progressive Labour Party (PLP) Premier since the PLP wrested control from the United Bermuda Party in 1998 after 30 years in opposition.
