The announcement of the Cabinet of Ministers will take place at a Swearing in Ceremony today, Thursday, 5th August, 2021 at 4:00 P.M.
The ceremony will be hosted at the House of Parliament on Laborie Street, a departure from the announcement of Mindoo Phillip Park. This was necessary to mitigate against any possible spike in COVID-19 and to redirect finances to assist parents with back-to-school expenses. LED screens will be placed in strategic positions to allow for the participation of the public.
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.
The Honourable Philip J. Pierre, Prime Minister of Saint Lucia had been in consultations as he prepared to appoint the Cabinet of Ministers.
