“And for the 305 votes that I received, I would like to say thank you for your support. This is my core base of voters that believe in my vision of putting people first. It’s with your trust and good faith that I have reached this far, and with God’s grace I will continue to work for the people of this great country we call home.
“I also would like to thank my campaign team which has done a good job, and through hard work and being open about the issues affecting our people we made a difference. It was a good learning experience for the team, and for every setback, there would be a stronger comeback.
“I thank you again and look forward to serving you over the next four years with your best interests at heart. My ‘back to basics’ approach and moving my people forward and getting the job done will now be coming from the House of Parliament as I take on this new responsibility to represent all the people in the interests of our country.
“Everything in life happens for a reason, and everything God does is perfect. Once again, thank you to the UP Party and to my family, friends and supporters,” Minister Hon. Maurice Lake said on Sunday.
