Member of Parliament for Laventille West, Fitzgerald Hinds is the new Minister of Public Utilities.

On Monday, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley advised President Paula-Mae Weekes to revoke the appointment of Robert Le Hunte as Senator and Minister of Public Utilities.

This follows Le Hunte’s resignation from these positions over the weekend. The Prime Minister confirmed his acceptance of the resignation on Sunday.

The Prime Minister requested that MP Hinds be assigned as Minister of Public Utilities, in addition to his role as Minister in the Ministry of Attorney General and Legal Affairs.

The statement from the Office of the Prime Minister also confirmed that the Prime Minister has advised that popular radio personality Jason ‘JW’ Williams be appointed as a Senator.

Williams is reportedly the People’s National Movement’s selection to contest the Barataria/San Juan seat in the General Elections, which are due this year.
