Faith B Yisrael is Deputy Chief Secretary elect of the Tobago House of Assembly.
This is according to Chief Secretary Farley Augustine who spoke on the matter at the Post Executive Council Media Briefing.
Ms Yisrael, also Secretary of Health, Wellness and Social Protection, is expected to replace Watson Duke who tendered his resignation last week.
Mr Augustine said both the president and presiding officer will be present for the oath of office to quell any differences in belief over who should give the oath.
Meanwhile, the Chief Secretary is denouncing accusations by his former deputy about collecting bribes.
He said he has been in contact with lawyers and intends to take legal action.
