Linyon Demokratik Seselwa (LDS) chairman Roger Mancienne’s New Year message






LDS look forward to a happy and prosperous 2018, says chairman Mancienne


Linyon Demokratik Seselwa (LDS) chairman Roger Mancienne said his party joined together with all the people of Seychelles to celebrate the end of year 2017 and to look forward to a happy and prosperous 2018.

“2017 has been a memorable year for Seychelles, one in which we all worked to forge national unity and strengthen democracy in our country. It is our hope that this work will help us to bring about better governance, economic opportunity and lasting benefit to our country and all our people,” said Mr Mancienne in his message.

He added: “We thank the people of Seychelles for their understanding and support through the year. We hope that everyone has been able to realise their goals for the year and can celebrate with the feeling that we have done the best for our families, our communities and our country.

“At the same time, we know that the work before us in 2018 will pose great challenges and call for all our effort and wisdom. Yet we look to the future with great hope because we know that in a nation where there is freedom and justice, people will also find the courage and determination to surpass the challenges. We ask everyone to renew our determination to work hard to make 2018 a great year for Seychelles.

“At this time of celebration, we extend all our compassion for those who will not share in the joy because of ill-health, bereavement or misfortune. We pray that they will have the courage to overcome difficulties that they face today.

“We wish everyone a joyful celebration of the New Year with their families and friends. May peace and unity prevail in our small nation.”
