New Opposition Leader Mia Mottley has named her shadow cabinet and Opposition senators.
At a news conference at the Opposition Leader’s Office at the Parliament Buildings yesterday, she named the Senate team as former minister of health Dr Jerome Walcott who will be the Leader of Opposition Business in the Upper Chamber, and attorney at law Wilfred Abrahams. Both were losing candidates in the February 21 general election.
Mottley, who has not named a deputy, will take on the challenge of not only shadowing the Office of the Prime Minister but also the key portfolios of finance and economic affairs.
Owen Arthur, the man she replaced as Opposition Leader last week, has not been assigned a specific portfolio. Mottley said the former prime minister would be given a free hand to speak “on any and all portfolios”.
