Oliver Galmo Williams
Former Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands

Oliver Galmo "Gilley" Williams was the Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands from 23 March 2009 to 14 August 2009.

Early life and education

Galmo Williams was educated at the Bottle Creek Primary School (now Adelaide Oemler Primary) and then at the Bottle Creek High School (now Raymond Gardiner High). He later attended the Miami Lakes Technical Institute from where he graduated with a diploma in Hospitality and Culinary Management.

Career

Williams ran for the 13th Electoral District (Cheshire Hall) during the General Elections in 2003 and won by a large majority. Williams served as the Minister responsible for Home Affairs and Public Safety within the Michael Misick administration. As such Williams oversaw the majority of the functions concerning: Immigration, Labour, Fire Services, Prisons, Natural Disaster, Road Safety, Registration of Births & Deaths, Emergency Services, Search and Rescue, Cadet Programme, and Coastal Petrol.

On 19 February 2009, Williams resigned from the Misick administration and launched his campaign to topple him as leader of the Progressive National Party (PNP). On 28 February 2009, Williams won a three-way battle for the position of leader of the PNP.

Following intense pressure from the Progressive National Party members, Misick resigned on 23 March 2009. Later in the afternoon Williams took the oath of office of the Premier, and became the second Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands. However, the office of premier was suspended on August 14 and transferred to the governor, against the PNP's wishes.

Personal life

Galmo Williams is married to Althea Williams and the father of four.
