East Timor Completes Transfer of Power

East Timor completed its first successful transfer of power from one party to another, which it performed peacefully, since independence in 2002, following the resignation of its independence leader as Prime Minister to allow younger leaders to take his place.  The President chose the opposition leader to from a coalition government. 

Congratulations to the East Timorese on their benchmark accomplishment in representative government.  I wish them successful parliamentary elections and the continued enjoyment of liberty.
