Mitchell to name his Cabinet

ST GEORGE’S, Grenada, Feb 23 – Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell is expected to name his Cabinet over the weekend, but has already told members of his successful New National Party (NNP) that not all of them would be named ministers.
Mitchell led his NNP to a clean sweep of all 15 seats in the February 19 general election and at a victory rally on Friday said at least two of three members will serve as backbenchers in Parliament.
He said the move would ensure that the legislators will also be given an opportunity to be elected as Deputy Speaker as well as to serve on various committees including the Public Accounts Committee.
“The regulations require that elected members of Parliament serve on these committee,” Mitchell told supporters as he explained the dilemma of having won all the seats in the election.
He urged supporters of the constituencies who will be directly affected following the swearing in of ministers on March 3 to understand the reason behind the decision. (CMC)
