The Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Seychelles offers its warmest congratulations to Wavel John Charles Ramkalawan for his election as President of the Republic of Seychelles.

Seychelles citizens have voted in large numbers in a peaceful electoral process which is the sign of a vivid democratic society.

We commend the call of Danny Faure, the outgoing President, for a peaceful transition.

As a long standing partner of Seychelles, the European Union looks forward to working with the new government in key areas of mutual interest, notably trade, maritime security, ocean governance including the renewal of the Operation Atalanta's mandate and its possible extension, fisheries, climate change as well as financial governance.
