Madam Minister,

Shall we congratulate you, or shall we express our sympathies?  But at least you accepted the offer, and that’s important.

It is impossible to work in this position if you do not really want it.

We will try to support you, as we supported your predecessor.

I am sure her experience would be useful for the new team as well.
