Parliament is New Venue for Ministers’ Swearing In Ceremony

THE Cabinet of Ministers will no longer be sworn in at the Mindoo Phillip Park as was previously announced.

The event will now take place tomorrow at 4:00 p.m. in the House of Parliament located Laborite Street, Castries.

The departure from Mindoo Phillip Park was necessary to mitigate against any possible spike in COVID-19 and to redirect finances to assist parents with back to school expenses, according to a press release from the Office of the Prime Minister.

LED screens will be placed in strategic positions to allow for the participation of the public.

Prime Minister Pierre, over the past few days has been in consultations with several heads of government ministries in preparation for today’s event. These discussions signal Hon. Pierre’s regard for consultation and inclusion on matters of State.

To date, the Prime Minister has assumed responsibility for the ministerial portfolios of Finance, Economic Development and the Youth Economy. Two appointments have also been made in the persons of Honourable Leslie Mondesir who serves as Attorney General and Maundy A. L. Lewis (Ms.) who serves as Press Secretary to the Prime Minister.
