The People’s National Congress Reform joins in the chorus of congratulations to the new President-elect of the United States of America, Mr. Barack Obama and the Democratic Party on the resounding victory at the Presidential and Congressional Elections on November 4, 2008.

President-elect Obama’s victory represents a historic milestone for the USA in general and the African American community in particular. Indeed, it provides the evidence of the strength of the system of democracy in the United States of America.

This victory has come at the end of a long and challenging campaign during which President-elect Obama displayed qualities of dignity, prudence and an abiding concern for the welfare and future of the American people. This concern for the American people and his message of hope, reconciliation, the uniting of the American people and the need for change of direction, resonated and stimulated the kind of democratic participation that has not been seen for a long time in the United States.

The PNCR, which has had an association with the Democratic Party over the years, is convinced that President-elect Obama has a mandate to tackle the problems facing the United States of America domestically and internationally. It has, therefore, taken note of the intention, signaled in his political platform, to start a new chapter of engagement with Latin America and the Caribbean. My Party looks forward to working with him in these terms for a better Region and a more peaceful world.
