Full Cabinet To Be Appointed This Week – President Ali

(Demerara Waves) With four ministers already appointed to serve the new People’s Progressive Party (PPP) government, President Dr. Irfaan Ali announced earlier Monday that the full cabinet appointment and establishment of various ministries will be made during the course of this week.

The new Guyanese head of state made this disclosure when he met staff at the Ministry of the Presidency, the official office of the president, as he started his first day on the job.

“Before the end of this week, we hope to have all the ministries established with the Cabinet Ministers appointed, the areas of responsibilities will have to be detailed and gazetted and then we can move towards a more general and broad discussion in relation to the priorities and the focus of the new Government,” he stated.

Following his swearing-in the president appointed Retired Brigadier Mr. Mark Phillips as Prime Minister, former President Bharrat Jagdeo as his Vice President, Anil Nandlall as Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, and Gail Teixeira Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Governance.
