I congratulate Sir Julius Chan for being returned as governor of New Ireland.
Although he lost his two key players in the drive for self-autonomy for New Ireland, his return will keep that flame burning.
I am sure that all New Irelanders remain resolute in their support of Sir J to achieve such a milestone for his province.
It will be a fitting legacy to his long political career and service to the people.
The two newly elected members must fully support Sir J in this very important and life-changing mission for the future benefit and prosperity of New Ireland.
Forget party politics and work together to provide quality services and prosperity for all the people of New Ireland who trusted and gave you their mandate.
