First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Finance Minister Bob Richards was this morning appointed Deputy Premier.

The announcement was made by Premier Michael Dunkley who said: “We certainly have a wealth and depth of talent among our team and I am gratified at the level of support expressed by my colleagues for Minister Richards.

“He has demonstrated a strength of knowledge and leadership, and he has proven over the years that he is an innovative thinker.

“Minister Richards has never shied away from making the tough decisions. He's tackled difficult matters such as the economy, Government's deficit and debt positions and has sought to find meaningful solutions to assist in getting Bermuda back on track.”

Mr Dunkley became Premier last month after Craig Cannonier stepped down amid the ‘Jetgate' scandal, after which investigation was launched.

More than four weeks later, the OBA have still not revealed the outcome of that probe.

Mr Richards' appointment takes immediate effect.
