Ministerial Portfolios to be announced today after Motley Interim in the Ministry of Health

Barbados’ Prime Minister Mia Mottley will be taking on responsibility for the Ministry of Health until she appoints her new Cabinet today.

And although keeping the portfolio allocations close to her chest, she hinted that changes could be on the cards for her office, as she insisted that innovation would be at the center of how her government will operate going forward.

She made the announcement on Thursday shortly after taking the new oath of office during a brief swearing-in ceremony led by President Dame Sandra Mason, just hours after her Barbados Labour Party took a second consecutive 30-nil victory at the polls.

Mottley said the engagement with constituents during the course of the short campaign leading up to Wednesday’s polls, allowed for reflection on what must be done to lift the country out of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“We really want to get back to a point where persons can regain control over their movements and lives. We have done well as a nation but we are still not out of the woods,” she said.
