Proclamation of presidential elections 2015 by the president of the republic , 1st October, 2015


Proclamation of presidential elections 2015 by the president of the republic , 1st October, 2015Over the last 11 years, we have worked hard together to bring our Seychelles to what it is today. Our task was not easy. We encountered some difficult moments. But we persevered. We took bold decisions, which enabled us to overcome certain critical situations. It helped that throughout this period, we remained united and steadfast. Together we undertook the tasks of building the New Seychelles.


We have succeeded. We have made much progress. From a situation of ‘napa’ (nothing being available), today we are not short of anything in Seychelles. We have reformed our system of social protection to enhance its efficiency. And reforms will continue. Reforms also apply for Health and Education. We have built more houses. We have created more jobs. We have created more small businesses and made more credit available to small Seychellois entrepreneurs. Our foreign exchange reserves have increased from US$23 million to over US$500 million. We have graduated from the status of a middle income country to one of high-income. At the same time, we have reinforced our state institutions. We have strengthened our democracy, and reformed our laws where necessary. And this has allowed our people to play a more active role in the political and socioeconomic life of our country.

Yes, we have made much progress. We have transformed our country. And all this – including the reforms we have undertaken – represent a decisive step in the history of modern Seychelles. But history does not stop there. The time has now come for us to undertake another step, one even more dynamic, in the history of nation. Read More..
