Seychelles President says my pledge is to remain connected with my people

Seychelles President says my pledge is to remain connected with my people ( Seychelles President James Michel has officially started his second elected mandate as the President of the Republic of Seychelles.

“You have judged me by my actions. In this new Seychelles, I renew my pledge to remain connected with my people," said President Michel in his inaugural address.

President Michel took his oath of office and oath of allegiance in the presence of the Chief Justice Frederick Egonda-Ntende at the ceremony of the inauguration held at State House yesterday evening.

This was followed by the swearing in of Vice President Danny Faure, with the oath of office and oath of allegiance.

The ceremony was attended by a large number of Seychellois dignitaries, as well as members of the diplomatic corps in Seychelles and diplomatic missions abroad accredited to Seychelles, as well of the International Observer Missions of the African Union, the Southern African Development Community, the Commonwealth, l'Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie, la Commission de l'Océan Indien, and the Electoral Institute of Southern Africa-EISA.

“Democracy is a dynamic process. In the new Seychelles, we shall continue to put in place and strengthen our legal and institutional frameworks to ensure the progress of our democracy. It is my aim to improve on our achievements and to reinforce the rule of law, good governance, and transparency. Seychelles is determined to provide a shining example of the development that is possible when good governance is prioritized," said the President.

The President said that the victory for a new Seychelles is not a personal victory, but a victory for all Seychellois, but a “victory for the future, a future which we are creating together."

The President pledged to continue to serve all Seychellois without discrimination.

“I shall continue to devote all my efforts for the service of our people. I would like to reaffirm what I have said repeatedly: I am the President of all Seychellois. I believe sincerely in this mission, and together, united as a nation, with stability and a spirit of solidarity, we shall do it."

President Michel said that Seychelles would not allow a place for division, for bickering, grudges, hatred, or xenophobia. He urged political leaders to put aside political and ideological differences for the benefit for progress as a people.

“We must, all of us, in the spirit of national unity and solidarity, put shoulder to shoulder and work towards one goal: a better future for this new Seychelles… I beg all Seychellois to rally around this cause. I put Seychelles before all else. Work within the diversity of our differences. Work hard for a better future for Seychelles. I call on the opposition to join us in this task. I repeat: there is no place in this small blessed country of ours for division. Let us work together for a better future for our country. Seychelles needs all its children. This new Seychelles deserves the best. It deserves our courage, our determination, and our sweat. Let us do it together for Seychelles. Let us unite for Seychelles. Let us earn more victories for Seychelles."
