Jamaica’s PM announces minor Cabinet reshuffle

KINGSTON – Prime Minister Andrew Holness has announced a minor Cabinet reshuffle that takes effect on Tuesday indicating that the move is designed to “assist the Administration in more efficiently and effectively delivering its policies and programmes for the Jamaican people”.

In a statement, the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) said that Information Minister Robert Morgan has been replaced by Dr Dana Morris Dixon, who also retains the portfolio responsibilities for skills and digital transformation.

Morgan has been reassigned to the Ministry of Economic, Growth and Job Creation with responsibility for works.

Political observers said that Morgan’s removal from the Ministry of Information had been expected given that he had resigned as the ruling Jamaica Labour Party’s (JLP) public relations chairman last month.

Morgan replaced Everald Warmington, who resigned from Cabinet in February in the wake of his comments suggesting he would starve an elected opposition People’s National Party (PNP) councillor of public funds.

Former broadcast journalist, Abka Fitz-Henley,  who was appointed to the Senate in May 2023, has been named a parliamentary secretary in the Office of the Prime Minister.

“The Administration is steadfastly committed to fulfilling its 2020 mandate to transform Jamaica into a peaceful, productive and prosperous nation,” the OPM statement noted as it announced the Cabinet changes. (CMC)
