Opposition appoints 18-member junior shadow Cabinet
The Opposition Leader Mark Golding has announced an 18-member junior shadow Cabinet.
It will be chaired by Senator Gabriela Morris, the Opposition's Shadow Minister of Youth.
According to Golding, the appointments are part of the efforts of the People's National Party (PNP) to integrate more young people to positions of influence.
"The Junior Shadow Cabinet presents young leaders with a new opportunity to engage in critical national discussions related to education, health, gender, the economy, national security and other policy areas," said a party spokesperson in a statement Monday.
The 18 junior shadow Cabinet will be responsible for portfolios primarily aligned with those of the Opposition's Shadow Cabinet.
The Opposition says while the junior shadow Cabinet team will act autonomously, it will have a working relationship with the Shadow Cabinet by serving on the task forces related to their portfolio areas.
