Statement by Prime Minister on the election of Mr. Kamalesh Sharma as the next Secretary General of Commonwealth

November 24, 2007

I am delighted that the Commonwealth Heads of Government have selected Kamalesh Sharma as the next Secretary General of the Commonwealth. His long record of public service in the international community has been capped by this recognition of his capability and his inclusive vision of the Commonwealth. I am confident that he will acquit himself well in his higher responsibilities as the first servant of the entire Commonwealth.
