Regional leaders react to historic US election result

Several regional politicians have joined countless others in issuing congratulations to President-elect Joe Biden and running-mate, now VP-elect Kamala Harris on their success at the polls.

Prime Minister of Saint Kitts and Nevis, Dr Timothy Harris, posted on Facebook: "I add my voice to those of other world leaders in congratulating #PresidentElectJoe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris."

Guyana's Opposition leader, Joseph Harmon, posted a congratulatory message on behalf of A Partnership for National Unity and Alliance For Change (APNU+AFC) Coalition and the people of Guyana.

He said in his statement that the United States is home to the largest Guyanese Diaspora.

Because of this, he said it is no surprise that the people of Guyana rejoice at the welcome news of the election result.

"Our nation looks forward to engaging with you, Vice President-elect Harris and your Cabinet in strengthening bilateral relations and building a stronger and more unified CARICOM and Caribbean basin. The APNU+AFC Coalition also looks forward to briefing you and Vice President-elect Harris on the political situation in Guyana."

Harmon said the coalition party is committed to working with the President and Vice President-elect to rebuild trust, re-establish constitutional democracy and social cohesion in Guyana after a recent period of political and social turmoil.

"I wish you a successful term in the White House as you embark on serving the people of the United States, providing hemispheric and global leadership and the unenviable task of restoring the United States’ status and reputation globally," he stated.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister of Jamaica, Andrew Holness, said: "America will have its first female Vice President in Kamala Harris, and we are proud that she bears Jamaican heritage. Her ascension to this role is a monumental accomplishment for women all over the world and I salute her.
