The PLP has offered its condolences to the family of Louis Somner, saying “we share in the sorrow of all who knew and served alongside Mr. Somner and extend our prayers and condolences to his family and loved ones.”

A PLP spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Progressive Labour Party joins our unions, supporters of the Bermuda Labour Movement and family in mourning the passing of a Labour stalwart Mr. Louis Somner.
