Opposition Leader Cole Simons today announced a partial reshuffle of his Shadow Cabinet Ministers, which went into effect as of Monday, November 1st.
In a statement released at 4pm this afternoon, the party’s leader said: “In order to optimize the skills of my Shadow Cabinet Ministers, I have made a partial reshuffle.
“Ms Susan Jackson, JP, MP, a seasoned and dedicated member, recently retired from her banking career. She was asked and accepted a new position as Shadow Minister of Transportation. She will also continue with her responsibility as the spokesperson for Education, in the House of Assembly.
“Other changes include the transference of the Ministry of Home Affairs, including the environment to the Shadow Minister of Legal Affairs, Scott Pearman, JP, MP and the Shadow Ministry of Economic Development, which has been appointed to Senator Marcus Jones, JP.
