Second Cabinet Minister Change In Past Weeks

March 31, 2022 | 9 Comments

The news that Renee Ming will no longer serve as a Cabinet Minister marks the latest in a series of changes to the Cabinet/Senate; the second in recent weeks, the third this year, and the sixth since 2020.

The six all varied — from statements the position was ‘revoked,’ voluntary resignations to ‘invitations to resign’ — however the two latest changes [Renee Ming and Curtis Dickinson] have something in common, they held Cabinet Ministries and there were no calls from the public for them to resign/be removed, which there was in other cases, most notably with Rolfe Commissiong [Cabinet/Senate] and Curtis Richardson [Senate].

Ms Ming originally took over the National Security Ministry after Wayne Caines received an “invitation to resign” from the position following the party incident back in 2020, with the St George’s MP becoming the first woman to serve in the position.

After Mr Dickinson resigned, Premier David Burt took over the finance portfolio and transferred some of his economic responsibilities to Minister Jason Hayward, effectively reducing the size of Cabinet by one person.

With Ms Ming departing Cabinet — with conflicting reports of whether she resigned or had the appointment revoked – Wayne Furbert is serving as the Acting Minister of National Security, and the Premier is expected to announce the new Cabinet configuration in the coming days, and whether he will adjust the current Ministers’ positions or bring a new person into Cabinet remains to be seen.

    We need DeSilva back – COVID over and all is forgiven

  2. No says:

    So both recent resignations come from the same bank. At least they had the guts to do it

  3. Ringmaster says:

    Very noticeable that the only person of the 6 that was fired, was a lady. The PLP never changes its spots and can’t handle females in leadership roles. Why hasn’t each Cabinet Minister who abstained been fired for not voting for the Cannabis Legislation?

    • Warrior says:

      I wonder the same thought. This is so evil….perhaps Minister Ming gave a piece of advise which DB did not like.

    • PBanks says:

      Which Ministers did not vote for the bill?

  4. Never get published says:

    Mr Arrogance cementing his legacy as Comrade Dictator Multi Major Generalissimo Supreme Commander for life under adv of a Dr

  5. me says:

    we are in trouble now as he only has the dumb ones left to choose from

  6. Joe Bloggs says:

    Maybe Mr. Burt will be our first Governor-General after we proclaim independence from Britain over the cannabis Bill.
