Vishnu Lutchmeenaraidoo no more holds the post of Minister of Finance, says the Prime Minister himself in a press conference held today at 4.00 p.m.
Now that Vishnu Lutchmeenaraidoo is no longer the Minister of Finance, Prime Minister SAJ himself will handle the financial affairs of the country. The former had been occupying the post since Alliance Lepep won the last general elections. He has now been nominated Minister of Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and International Trade. Following this change, Étienne Sinatambou will be the new Minister of Technology, Communication and Innovation.
SAJ explains that Vishnu Lutchmeenaraidoo has fallen ill, and that he thus prefers to remove himself from the post. Otherwise, the PM reassures the population that the government programme will remain unchanged.
