New Turks and Caicos Premier Sworn-In
Governor Ric Todd swore in Dr Rufus Ewing of the Progressive National Party (PNP) as the new premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) on Tuesday.
The PNP won eight seats in the House of Assembly, with the People’s Democratic Movement (PDM) winning seven.
Following his swearing in, Ewing will now advise the governor of his intended ministers.
Todd said, it was a real honour and privilege to swear in a premier. He looks forward to working with Premier Ewing and his ministerial team to continue the ongoing effort to make the TCI a more open, accountable and better managed society. He says there is much to do and we both look forward to jointly.
