Saul, who re­por­ted­ly wor­ked with the Uni­ted Na­ti­ons De­vel­op­ment Pro­gram­me (UNDP) from 2012, ca­me out tops in a field of 20-plus per­sons in­ter­vie­wed for the po­si­ti­on. A re­ti­red Lt. Co­lo­nel of the Gu­y­a­na De­fen­ce For­ce, Saul re­cent­ly tes­ti­fied in the pu­blic in­quiry in­to the con­di­ti­ons fa­cing ve­te­rans. He is qua­li­fied in pu­blic ma­na­ge­ment.

Al­so ap­pro­ved was a new ac­ting Chief Fi­nan­ci­al Of­fi­cer, Reaz Abra­him.

The new Chief De­vel­op­ment Plan­ner is Ger­me­ne Ste­wart. She had been ac­ting in that po­si­ti­on for so­me ti­me now. Ac­cor­ding to Govern­ment sour­ces, the na­mes of the ap­poin­tees will be for­war­ded to Ca­bi­net for en­dor­se­ment.
