Cabinet soon, says Ralph
KINGSTOWN, St Vincent – Dr Ralph Gonsalves was sworn into office as prime minister for a fourth consecutive time on a day on which the main opposition New Democratic Party (NDP) refused to concede defeat in the general election and their supports sought to prevent the ceremony taking place.
“I am sorry I am late,” a beaming Gonsalves, 69, told the audience at the official residence of Governor General Sir Frederick Ballantyne on Thursday night, adding that “some people just don’t want to accept the results of the election”.
Gonsalves said he would decide on the composition of his new Cabinet by Monday following his victory in Wednesday’s general election here. (CMC)
