Kathy Lynn Simmons has been appointed as the Acting Minister of Community Affairs and Sport, the Government announced this evening.

Ms Simmons already holds the post of Attorney-General and Minister of Legal Affairs.

A government spokeswoman added: “Ms Simmons will act until a substantive minister is appointed, which will happen before the convening of Parliament.”

David Burt, the Premier, announced last Thursday that Rolfe Commissiong would fill the post and serve as Government Senate Leader.

But Mr Commissiong resigned from the posts “with immediate effect” two days later after the appointment sparked backlash from activists and others who cited the reasons for him quitting as an MP before the General Election.

The Premier has yet to fill the void in the Senate left by Mr Commissiong.
