Patricia Gordon-Pamplin and Sylvan Richards have been announced as interim leader and interim deputy leader of the One Bermuda Alliance, after the party’s members convened last night.

The announcement from Lynne Woolridge, chairwoman of the OBA, came on the heels of Tuesday’s sweeping loss at the polls, in which the Progressive Labour Party took seven seats off the former ruling party to secure a 24-12 win in the 2017 General Election.

Michael Dunkley stepped down in the wake of the defeat — following Bob Richards, the deputy leader, who resigned after losing his seat in Devonshire East to Christopher Famous of the PLP.

According to a party statement, Ms Gordon-Pamplin said: “I look forward to working with our MPs, party members and the Bermudian community to be a strong Opposition. Our team will hold the new Government to account and ensure they are working in the best interests of all Bermudians.”

Senators as well as a shadow cabinet will be announced “in due course”, the statement added.
