Re: Appointment of Robert Le Hunte
It has come to the attention of the Honourable Prime Minister that Mr Robert Le Hunte is a citizen of Ghana and accordingly he is not qualified under section 42(1) of the Constitution of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago to be a appointed as a Senator.
Accordingly, the Honourable Prime Minister has so informed the President of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.
Mr Le Hunte will be rectifying his position and once this is done the Honourable Prime Minister will appoint him as a Senator and as Minister of Public Utilities. Under these circumstances, until the matter is rectified, the Honourable Prime Minister will assume the portfolio of Minister of Public Utilities.
It is expected that this situation will be rectified by Friday 1 September, 2017.
