Youth to be appointed as Heads of a number of boards, directors of several government agencies

Senator Nedd

Cabinet Notes:

The Cabinet agreed to appoint several youth ambassadors and youthful managers to fill positions that require new energy and drive.

Heads of a number of boards, directors of several government agencies, and members within the Senate will be considered for youth appointments.

The Cabinet agreed that it is compelled to create space for youth leadership. and that there are several youthful candidates that had in fact been appointed following the 2014 and 2018 general elections.

The Cabinet recalled that the Prime Minister, in consultation with the Cabinet, had appointed several 20-year-olds following the 2014 and 2018 general elections to legislative positions.

Senators Lee, Fortune and Govia were appointed following the 2014 general elections.

Minister Maria Browne, who won a seat in the Lower House at age 26 and, more recently, Senator Knacyntar Nedd, are among those who filled legislative positions within the parliament of Antigua and Barbuda within their 20s.

New appointments will join previous youth appointments such as the Director of Gender Affairs and top management of the State Insurance Corporation, among others, to fulfill the Cabinet’s ambitions. The list is not exhaustive.

  1. Is this a cog? I saw UPP present this for International Youth Day and thought it was a good move. We need to include the youth as part of the national policy making to acknowledge their ideas and different perspectives.

  2. Lovell will say that you stole his idea. When you guys have been doing this since 2014. But that is how the UPP is. They like to claim they did it before.

    • @ From The Sideline

      YOU AND ABLP ARE BIG LIARS, YOU JUST KEEP COGGING, COGGING, COGGING, NO ORIGINAL IDEAS, YOU ARE DEVOID OF SUCH…..

      YOU GUYS HAVE NO SHAME WHATSOEVER

    • Sidelines: The idea came from Lovell and the UPP. I did hear Lovell on Observer Radio some weeks ago speaking on this matter. He gave numbers of young persons that would be promoted into some positions of leaderships. It was a damn good idea then. Your leader and his band of merry men pounced on it now. Do you guys have any forward thinking ideas of your own to tell the public at large.

  3. Oh Lord Gaston tap cog. If Harold Lovell didn’t talk about appointing young people to Boards etc you would not be coming with this now. Please tap cog and come up with your own ideas. It is like when you cog several proposals of the UPP before the last general elections.

  4. A 15 year old girl name Laura Glass created the idea of house arrest (read lockdowns) to “control” the spread of disease.. Her father was computer modeler who helped her promote the practice that devastated people and economies worldwide.

    Just some food for thought…

  5. Here We Go Again

    On the even of election, a promise on top of a promise, on top of a promise, for Young people.
    They’ll b on the board but with no power cause the Minister go just fire them or rotate them if they don’t follow orders.

    and…… what is your age range for youth ? Cause I cant wait c this one ya

  6. You know you guys are so predictable. Exactly what I said you guys are doing. Don’t you have any brains. Didn’t you read the article?
    “And that there are several youthful candidates that had in fact been appointed following the 2014 and 2018 general elections.

    Where was Lovell in 2014 when these appointments took place? Where was Lovell when Senator Nedd was appointed?
    What Lovell is dreaming of Gaston has already been implementing. Lovell is way behind Gaston’s ideas. Look at the latest ambassador’s appointments of young sport athletes like Mrs. Percival in Body Building. The chairperson of SICL is a young lady by the name of Leslie-Ann Yearwood. Very intelligent accountant. We had Mr. Freeland that was as a junior Minister. Were it not for his unfortunate mishandling of government funds, he was removed from his position. And let me tell you all, Darren Matthew, Samantha Marshall and Michael Browne are young people. Running a ministry. Of which, Michael Browne demonstrated his capacity to have been in the center of bringing the UWI Fourth landed campus here to Antigua.
    The UPP is bankrupt in everything. Even in ideas. Up to now we have not heard what the UPP’s vision for the country is. I guess we should ask Baldwin again.
