"Everyone (Government MPs) unanimously authorised me to advise the Governor-General that when he comes to make an appointment of my successor, the best person able to command the confidence of a majority of this House is ... the Honourable Portia Lucretia Simpson Miller," Mr. Patterson said to desk-thumping in the Chamber. The Government members had met earlier in the day at Jamaica House to formally make the selection.
During yesterday's sitting, Opposition Leader Bruce Golding took the opportunity to give "congratulations and best wishes" to Mrs. Simpson Miller on behalf of the Opposition.
The Prime Minister-designate expressed her own thanks to members on both sides of the aisle.
"I look forward to working with all of you for the betterment of the quality of life of all our people," she said.
