On the occasion of the electoral victory of the Liberal Party, FABC President Kim Hollow has written the following letter of congratulations and good wishes to Mr Tony Abbott the Prime Minister Elect:

On behalf of our Management Committee, I congratulate you and your team on achieving the majority of seats in the Lower House, to facilate  formation of our next Australian Federal Government.

We greatly appreciated the letter of greetings you sent to the 575,000 Australian Buddhist practitioners, for our May 2013 celebrations of Vesak.

I extend an open invitation to you to visit one of our many Buddhist Temples, following your confirmation as our next Prime Minister of Australia.
This gesture would mean a great deal to our diverse community, as no Australian Prime Minister has ever officially visited a Buddhist Temple or Monastery within Australia.
In conclusion, we sincerely wish you and your Ministers strength, compassion and wisdom, to deal with the many challenges facing your team in the years ahead.

Yours faithfully,
Kim Hollow.
