Premier David Burt this afternoon, named his new Cabinet and Senate team following the 2020 General Election at Government House.
Burt said, “One week ago Bermudians were presented with a choice of who would bear the heavy responsibility for rebuilding this economy and reviving the livelihoods of our people. As the results have indicated, the choice made was clear and unambiguous.
The mandate of trust that has been emphatically expressed by the people of Bermuda is both humbling and inspiring. Humbling because I believe that our message of steady leadership is one that inspires confidence in our abilities and commitment. Inspiring because, in so strong an expression of democratic will, there is an inherent hope that the vision presented will have every opportunity to succeed.
Given the fact that all previous Government Senators were elected to the House of Assembly, I have asked former MP Rolfe Commissiong to lead the Government’s senate team and join the Cabinet as the Minister of Community Affairs and Sports.”
Senator Commissiong previously served as an MP but stepped down, prior to the election.
