Prime Minister Anthony

Hon. Dr. Kenny D. Anthony

Prime Minister of Saint Lucia

Saturday, December 8, 2001 - Prime Minister Dr. Kenny D. Anthony has been receiving congratulatory messages from governments, international institutions and individuals in the Caribbean and beyond.

Among the messages congratulating the Prime Minister on his party's victory and his return to office are notes from the Government of the republic of Guyana, as well as from the Commonwealth, the Organisation of American States (OAS) and the European Union (EU).

Guyana's President Bharrat Jagdeo said the re-election of Dr. Anthony as Prime Minister with such a resounding mandate "is clear evidence of your people's satisfaction with your efforts and ability to lead your country to greater prosperity in a rather complex and difficult global economic environment."

President Jagdeo recalled Dr. Anthony's efforts as part of Caricom's efforts to adDr.ess the political challenges in Guyana and said he was sure that, "as colleagues", they could "count on each other's support as members of the Caricom family."

The Guyana President said his people joined him in expressing "full confidence that your tenure of office will not only further enhance and improve the living conditions of all St. Lucians, but will redound to the benefit of the regional integration movement."

Secretary General of the Commonwealth, Don McKinnon, in his message, offered Dr. Anthony "warm congratulations" on his party's victory and his return to office as Prime Minister. He said the impressive scale of the victory "reflects the electorate's confidence in your leadership."

Mr. Mc Kinnon said he looked forward to continuing the Commonwealth's collaboration with St. Lucia on matters of mutual interest, as well as to meeting the Prime Minister when he visits St. Lucia next month, as well as to welcoming the St. Lucia Prime Minister to the upcoming next Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Coolum.

Secretary General of the Organisation of American States Cesar Gaviria, in his congratulatory message from Washington, noted what he described as Dr. Anthony's "leadership role in ensuring the spirit of freedom and firmness with which the process was imbued."

He said he was conscious of the challenges facing small, developing countries like St. Lucia in pursuit of their development and felt "assured" that under Dr. Anthony's leadership 'the quality of life of the people of St. Lucia will continue to improve and that your ideal of ensuring that no St. Lucia is left behind will be significantly advanced."

Other messages from the Caribbean were received from the General Secretary of the ruling People's Progressive Party (PPP) of Guyana Donald Ramotar, as well as the Mayor of Georgetown (Guyana) Mr. Hamilton Green and the Anglican Bishop of the Windward Islands Rev Sehon GooDr.idge.
