  1. Imagine a whole ministry for “water resources” was created for Ganga.

  2. The creation of Ministries ro create jobs for the boys is over

  3. I hope Science and Technology does not get subsumed too much so it disappears.

  4. And environment should be forefront

  5. Same with Environment, Justice and several others. They haven’t been eradicated …just relocated

  6. But it was just an observation re: gender affairs.

  7. Well tertiary education is under education. I actually never saw the need for a separate ministry for that.

  8. Neither is Tertiary Education in the title of any other Ministry but it will be absurd to think it was eradicated, not so?

  9. No, I mean it’s no longer in the title of any ministry. It’s not like it got put with something else. The gender affairs ministry just no longer exists.

  10. They were allocated to other Ministries Chabeth. Dr Rowley indicated such since he was on the campaign trail

  11. Seems more like it was eradicated than consolidated, Mel?

  12. Imbert got Finance? He have files on the PM owa?

  13. Nope..many were consolidated

  14. Gender affairs no longer exists?

  15. Some very interesting choices.

  16. Looks good on paper, with the resrvations raised by Chabeth et al about ministries that have “disappeared.” We’ll have to wait and see, of course, just what the different portfolios contain but one question that arises in the meantime is this: Might the new Prime Minister, perhaps in his effort to justify the coming pay rise for ministers, be giving them rather more than they can comfortably chew?

  17. Dr. Rowleys first big mistake, ignoring the main persons who started the campaign to remove the PP.
    Lasana, I don’t understand why you were left out of this cabinet. Don’t worry bro he will pay the ultimate price. No honeymoon for him, let’s start the attack from today lasana.
