Parliament has unanimously approved the President’s nominations for regional ministerial appointments.
The nominees were approved on consensus after the Appointments Committee submitted its third report on the 16 regional nominees who had been vetted by the committee and recommended for approval.
This completes the prior approval constitutional processes required for all the President’s ministerial nominees.
