Premier Dr. Natalio Wheatley Rejects Claims of Government Incompetence and Disregard for Residents

Premier Dr. Natalio Wheatley has rejected claims that his government has demonstrated a lack of competence and disregard towards the well-being of the territory's residents.
He argued that these criticisms are part of a politically motivated narrative and called for the public to focus on the positive achievements of the territory instead.

"I don't think that's a narrative of a majority of people in society," Dr. Wheatley stated.

"It might be a politically driven, convenient narrative that some people are promoting." The Premier pointed out that various public servants, statutory bodies, and the UK government have been instrumental in providing support to the territory.

He also acknowledged that there are still areas for improvement, but emphasized that the territory remains a great place to live and work.

"While there are challenges and difficulties ahead, the territory continues to be a great place to live and work," Dr. Wheatley affirmed.

"All the things that are challenging should not overshadow the good that's taking place in this territory." Governor John Rankin also dismissed the idea of a lack of competence in territorial governance, stating that he does not recognize the picture of ineptitude that has been portrayed.

He acknowledged that there are challenges to be addressed, but argued that they are not being ignored by himself, the UK, the Premier, or the Police Commissioner.

"There are always more things to do in terms of security, but no country is free of crime," Governor Rankin said.

Dr. Wheatley and Governor Rankin emphasized the need to focus on the positive aspects of the territory and work towards improving the overall well-being of the community.
