PM Confirms Cabinet Reshuffle In June


ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada,  CMC – Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell Wednesday confirmed that he would be re-shuffling his Cabinet next month.

While he gave no details as to why the process was not done during the first quarter of 2016, as he had promised during a national address in January, Prime Minister Mitchell said the change in ministerial portfolios will be done during the month of June.

In January he told the nation that the change was necessary to “further fine-tune the workings of government; to afford people different experiences; and to allow some ministers more time for deeper interactions with the people who had sent them to the Parliament in the first place”.
Since the New National Party (NNP) won all the seats in the 2013 general election, there have been two Cabinet re-shuffles.

Two of the NNP legislators are yet to get an opportunity to serve as ministers and it is likely that Mitchell will include them in a new Cabinet line=up ahead of the next general election in two years time.

Mitchell has promised in March 2013 that all of successful NNP members would be allowed to serve as ministers during the tenure of his administration.
