The New Democratic Party has extended congratulations to SVG’s new Governor General, Her Excellency Susan Dougan.
In a statement, The NDP Said Her Excellency has essentially been in the public service for most of her working life – an experience – which they consider will hold well in her continuing service to St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
In commenting on the appointment of Mrs. Dougan, President of the NDP, Dr Godwin Friday said she has made history as SVG’s first female Governor General.
Friday said he doesn’t expect nothing but the highest standard of service to the nation and trust that the New Governor General will use her high office to bring attention to many issues confronting the nation.
The NDP said it hopes that her appointment will serve as an inspiration to Vincentians of all ages and backgrounds as the party look forward to her leadership as St Vincent and the Grenadines moves to its 40th Anniversary of Independence.
