DR DENIS LOWE is recovering well and “taking full advantage” of his leave from Parliament, which ends in early May.
And the Christ Church East parliamentary representative has assured all that he “absolutely” will be back in the fray whenever the next general election is called.
“There is nothing that will stop me from continuing to represent my constituency,” he disclosed.
Lowe said his convalescent leave had been “extremely beneficial”.
Lowe spoke to the MIDWEEK NATION yesterday, a few hours after making the rounds in the constituency in an effort to address some outstanding matters.  
He visited Parish Land, Fairy Valley, Enterprise Main Road and Hopewell Development. He said the last two had issues with the roads, especially when the rain falls. Some residents were still dealing with damage from Tomas, he said.
“It’s not the first time I’ve been out as seems to be the impression. I’ve been out and about in my constituency and around the country, for that matter, for some time now,” Lowe explained.
According to Lowe, residents were “extremely happy” to see him looking and feeling better.
“I must admit to you that I feel better than I’ve felt in many years, and certainly with my exercise programme, my diet programme and attention to minimizing stressful situations,” Lowe stated.
The minister said his staff had been continuing the work in his absence and that the branch office remained open and would return to full swing from today with the clinics.
He said he could not promise that the customary 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. hours would still obtain, however.
Lowe did not speak to any issues relating to his position in Cabinet or whether he had been replaced by Denis Kellman, who has assumed responsibility for his portfolios.
“The Prime Minister has not declared a Cabinet vacancy. I am off on leave . . . . Right now I am very comfortable preparing myself . . . so that any challenge that I have to face I could face it, and face it with valour,” he stated. (YB)
