Proud moment for new PM
LAST SATURDAY was a hectic day for this island’s new Prime Minister Freundel Stuart. It was filled with meetings and specials events.
Following the death of his predecessor David Thompson, Stuart gained the confidence of his elected parliamentary colleagues when they met at the Democratic Labour Party’s headquarters on George Street, Belleville, St Michael, and chose him as the man to lead them in Parliament.
He then held meetings with some senior public officers before going to Government House where he was sworn into office and subsequently returned to witness his ministers taking their oaths of office.
In the evening he attended the graduation ceremony
of the Cave Hill campus of the University of the West Indies at the Garfield Sobers Gymnasium where to his joy and pride he witnessed his daughter Julienne St Hill graduating with her Bachelor of Science degree.
