Senator Pearnel Charles Jr appointed Minister without portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation

Prime Minister Andrew Holness has announced the immediate appointment of Senator Pearnel Charles Jr as Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation.
 
Senator Charles was State Minister in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade.
 
He will work closely with the Prime Minister on the Housing and Infrastructure Portfolio.
 
With the dismissal of Ruel Reid last week there had been only one Senator in the Cabinet, contrary to the relevant provision of the Jamaican Constitution that no fewer than two and no more than four members of the Cabinet should be appointed from the Senate.
 
In the meantime, Hon. Karl Samuda has now been assigned to the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information. 
 
A statement from the Office of the Prime Minister said he is now conducting an administrative review of the Ministry.
 
Mr. Holness will maintain oversight of the Education, Youth and Information portfolio as the administrative and governance review continues.
