This just in from the Jamaica Observer:
“Political tensions mounted in Grenada today after three government ministers boycotted a swearing in ceremony where they were due to take the oath of office following a cabinet re-shuffle announced by Prime Minister Tillman Thomas late yesterday.
An official statement issued here said that Prime Minister Thomas said that Karl Hood would take over responsibility for the ministries of foreign affairs, environment and international trade that was previously held by Peter David, while Glynis Roberts, will serve as minister for labour.
It said that former Cabinet minister Michael Church, will now serve as a junior minister in the works ministry.
But none of the ministers turned up at the governor general’s office amid media reports of a rift within the two-year-old cabinet over the re-shuffle, the second since the National Democratic Congress came to office in July 2008…”
Bad time to be in politics anywhere, but busted to Junior Minister in Works from the Cabinet level? Man…
