Updated: August 5, 2016

As we told you yesterday, Dr Carla Barnett who sits in the Senate was dubbed the Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance.  That announcement came yesterday via the Prime Minister’s press conference spurred by Hurricane Earl.  Here is how Prime Minister Dean Barrow explained his decision.

According to Senator Barnett there is a range of things that are needed to be done in various sectors in order that everything is taken into account for the rebuilding process.

Senator Barnett’s new posting as a Minister will be gazetted in the coming days before she officially takes on the post.
