It is with a heavy heart that the Opposition relays its heartfelt condolence to Hon. Minister Gaetan Pikioune for the sudden loss of his brother and MFEM First Political Adviser Mr. Antoine Pikioune.
Mr. Antoine Pikioune has been an active political figure since colonial times fighting for French language recognition and a stout believer in the Moderate alliance. Always working behind the scenes and a staunch believer and advocate for economic independence through the UMP and Nagriamel Movement. He will be sorely missed.
The Opposition Office extends its sincere condolence and sympathy to his wife, children and grandchildren, his friends and relatives during this mourning period.
