OAS Secretary General Congratulates New Prime Minister of Jamaica

WASHINGTON, DC -The Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza, today congratulated the new Prime Minister of Jamaica, Andrew Holness, and extended the full support of the hemispheric organization as well as his best wishes for a successful term in office.

“It’s a tribute to Jamaica’s unwavering commitment to democracy that the transfer of state power on Sunday passed from one elected Member of Parliament to another,” Insulza said in a letter to the Prime Minister, adding that his country “should take pride in the smooth transition of leadership in Government.”

The head of the OAS recalled in the letter that “Jamaica has been a strong and consistent partner in the work and efforts of the Organization in the Hemisphere.” “Therefore, we offer full support and cooperation from the OAS,” he concluded.
