Former Secretary to the Cabinet, Marc Telemaque, was formally sworn into that post again on Friday, by Governor John Rankin.

While making the announcement, Premier David Burt said Mr Telemaque “brings to the post an extensive knowledge of the public service”.

Mr Burt said he was “pleased” that Mr Telemaque accepted the job after serving “in this role previously”.

“Immediately prior to accepting the position, he was the secretary for national security, a role he will continue in until the completion of the Budget process,” said Mr Burt.

“As Cabinet Secretary he will provide guidance to the Cabinet and execute policy decisions. On behalf of my Cabinet colleagues, I congratulate Mr Telemaque and look forward to working with him.”

He also took the opportunity to thank Dr Derrick Binns, “for his hard work, dedication and the sound advice he has provided over the last seven months in his role as Cabinet Secretary and Head of the Civil Service”.

In closing, the Premier said: “I look forward to working with him as he assumes the recently revised role of Head of the Public Service to advance the important goals of public service reform.”
