The People’s Progressive Party has rolled out its list of members who have been selected to serve as members in the 12th Parliament.
In addition to the recently sworn in Ministers, the PPP is heading to Parliament with additional new faces and some who have served before.
Former Government Ministers Bheri Ramsarran and Dr. Jennifer Westford are among the old faces that will be returning. Dharamkumar Seeraj who was expected by many to end up as a Minister but was not selected for any cabinet position will also be heading back.
Former Toasho Yvonne Pearson is also among the old faces for the PPP heading into the Parliament. Surprisingly, the party is also taking back one of its backbenchers, Alistir Charlie who is currently before the Courts on a charge of sexual assault of a child.
One of the new faces not holding Ministerial portfolio is Attorney Sanjeev Datadin. He is believed to be the PPP’s choice for Speaker of the National Assembly, although the party has not confirmed that decision.
Two of the recently installed Ministers, Robeson Benn and Oneige Waldron are technocrat Ministers and therefore will not have voting powers while they serve as Members of Parliament.
With no appointment of a Finance Minister, it is likely that the Vice President Bharrat Jagdeo will handle that portfolio.
Just recently, the Government announced that the Finance and Natural Resources portfolios were to be supervised by the Office of the President.
