New Public Admin Minister outlines goals


    Newly appointed Public Administration Minister Allyson West is hoping to do as much as she can in the short space of time that she has.

    Ms West formally assumed the post today, replacing Marlene McDonald who was fired in the wake of corruption related charges.

    She spoke to members of the media.

    Today, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley also advised Acting President Christine Kangaloo to:

    • revoke the appointment of Garvin Simonette as Senator

    • appoint Foster Cummings as a Senator and

    • appoint Adrian Leonce as Minister in the Ministry of Public Utilities

    Mr Leonce also received his instruments of appointment today.

    Meanwhile Mr Cummings returns, after being removed as a senator recently to make room for Ms Cox upon her appointment as Communications Minister.
