One Bermuda

Under the PLP, Bermuda’s economy was broken. Businesses were closing, debt was skyrocketing, and people were losing hope. Today, optimism has returned to the island as the OBA is turning our economy around and moving Bermuda in the right direction.

East to West

From East to West, the OBA has spent the past five years hard at work revitalizing Bermuda—but we're not done yet.

Rolled Out Candidates

Address delivered at the swearing-in ceremony at Government House

by Premier, The Hon. Michael H. Dunkley, JP. MP

I am humbled by the responsibility I have now been given. Let me first however, thank former Premier Craig Cannonier. We worked together first in opposition and as his deputy I was grateful for the opportunity he gave to me to serve in Cabinet. I always enjoyed his support as a Minister and it cannot be forgotten that he led our Party to a significant election victory. I wish to thank him and his wife Antoinette for all that they have done for Bermuda and I look forward to working with him.



The foundation for Bermuda's recovery has been set in these last 17 months by a team of men and women who set about every day to do what is best for Bermuda. Now, I have the honour to lead that team and our mission remains the same: we must renew the promise of this country; we must create jobs for our people; we must educate our children and we must keep Bermuda safe. 



These are the expectations of the people and we must meet and exceed those expectations each and every day. I am committed to working hard on finding solutions to our problems and delivering on the promises we made to the people of this country. We are the government of all of Bermuda and that means we must always put country first. 



My family has always supported my public service and I remain grateful to them for supporting me now as I assume the office of Premier.



I also wish to thank my parliamentary colleagues for their vote of confidence and I look forward to meeting individually with them and with our wider membership in the coming weeks to continue our work on behalf of Bermuda. 



The last few weeks have been testing at times and it may have seemed to the people of Bermuda that their elected leaders had lost some of their focus. Politics can do that sometimes. However, I want to assure the people of this country that their Government is unwavering in the commitment to improving this economy and restoring prosperity and success as part of the Bermuda story. 



Thank you again for your prayers and well wishes and let's get to work!



Thank you. 



Michael Dunkley
