(Trinidad Guardian) Dr. Ralph Gonsalves will take his political bow, after the completion of his historic fifth term as Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
He confirmed while speaking on CNC3’s The Morning Brew yesterday, that this term will be his last.
“This is the last time, this is the last time. Part of my political task is to make sure that the succession in the party, in the government, that it goes clean,” he said.
Dr. Gonsalves, 74, said it was his duty to complete what he started before he leaves the post behind.
“The people have taken me at my word that I, they have given me an opportunity so that I wouldn’t leave behind any unfinished task. It’s one thing to give me the glass empty to finish, three quarter or more but I have to finish filling up the glass,” he said.
The win in Thursday’s election saw Gonsalves’ Unity Labour Party increased their majority in the St Vincent and the Grenadines parliament as they won one more seat compared to the 2015 election.
