My good people of Solomon Islands. I stand here today as your newly elected Prime Minister. This is an awesome responsibility which I take with humility. I would like to thank all you good citizen’s right across the country and also to those living abroad for your prayers and support. I take this opportunity to also acknowledge the Members of Parliament for having the confidence and trust in me to lead our Government for the remainder of this term. I also acknowledge the hard work and contributions by my predecessor. I must acknowledge the general public for maintaining peace and order during the past 3 weeks of political uncertainty until. Most of all, we thank God for his divine guidance in this matter of national interest.
