Dr Rufus Ewing has been sworn in by Governor Ric Todd as the new Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
The ceremony took place Tuesday at Todd’s office in Grand Turk following the Progressive National Party’s one-seat victory in last Friday’s election.
“It is a real honour and privilege to swear in a Premier,” Todd said. “I look forward to working with Premier Ewing and his Ministerial team to continue the ongoing effort to make the TCI a more open, accountable and better-managed society.”
Ewing will soon advise Todd of his intended Ministers, who are slated to be sworn in on Wednesday morning.
“As I have said throughout the election process, this marks the beginning of a new chapter in the history of TCI,” Todd said.
