In his first address to the nation, Prime Minister Benn laid out his Cabinet and got right to work implementing his manifesto.
PM's Remarks:Her Majesty the Queen has asked me to form a government and I have accepted.
It is an honour for me to serve as Prime Minister in the region that is most dear to me and the one where my journey began on NationStates. Therefore I first of all give my thanks to everyone who voted for me to occupy this position.
As of recent, the region has faced some of its darkest moments and thanks to the work of a number of individuals, namely our caretaker governments of late, we have managed to show some glimmers of progress. I would like to pay especial tribute to Andrew whose dedication to the United Kingdom is absolute and I know he shall continue this in his work in government.
We have welcomed several new citizens and it shall be the task of this government to ensure their stay is a pleasant and enjoyable one, as well as looking at what we can do to attract others. Our main task will be to implement forum reforms and input from our citizens will be required as we take measures to improve our community.
To support these plans I am announcing my Cabinet. I hope too to involve new faces in the region into the work of government and those that have an interest my message me personally. The position of Defence Secretary shall not be filled in line with my manifesto commitments and an announcement will be made on the Ministry of Defence shortly.
Thank you and here's to a prosperous 2016 for our region.
