GSD member for Parliament, Damon Bossino has been hailed as the Opposition’s Deputy Leader. In an announcement made today by Leader Daniel Feetham, Mr. Bossino has also been given further shadow ministerial responsibilities for Financial Services.
Mr. Bossino insisted that his appointment was a great, but humbling honour. He added, ‘I will of course continue to discharge my Opposition parliamentary responsibilities and work hard to seek the GSD’s return to office. Both the leader and I are very seriously concerned about the way that Gibraltar’s affairs are being handled both internally and in relation to our international relations, both being areas which, given Gibraltar’s size and circumstances, invariably overlap.
‘It is for this reason that we as an Opposition party have the responsibility to ensure that the party is adequately prepared to regain people’s trust and support as a real alternative to this Government.’
Mr. Feetham believes that this appointment represents a further step in the re-organisation of the party following the introduction of the new Constitution, elections to the Executive, public meetings of the party and the appointment of a new chairman. He is confident that they will be able to work together in ‘achieving success for [their] party.’
