Prime Minister Freundel Stuart reported for work this morning with a packed schedule ahead of him.It was his first day on the job as Prime Minister.
On Sunday night, Stuart delivered his first televised address as Prime Minister, following the death of the late David Thompson early Saturday morning.
He told the nation: “Upon my shoulders has now devolved the responsibility of leading the struggle in pursuit of those ideals for which he (Thompson) stood. With God going before me, I accept this responsibility with humility and a keen sense of duty, ever conscious of the fact, not only of the pressing needs of our nation, but also of his oft expressed confidence in me”.
Commenting on his first day in office, he told the Nation’s Gercine Carter, that while it should be “a normal day…the consciousness changes”.
