Chairman of The Progressive Liberal Party

On behalf of the Progressive Liberal Party, I extend warm congratulations to Joseph Biden on his election victory as the 46th President of the United States.
We also extend warm congratulations and pay tribute to Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris, for making history as both the first woman and person of colour to be elected to that high office.
In voting in such record numbers, we applaud the American people for re-affirming the democratic ideals of Thomas Jefferson, and recognise that the will of the people has been freely and fully expressed.
The Progressive Liberal Party looks forward to working with the new administration on a number of national and regional issues of mutual concern and interest.
