Ram­jat­tan should be re­placed Pol­lard

Weekend Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

Se­nior re­minded sev­eral min­is­ters in the im­me­di­ate past ad­min­is­tra­tion of that. Ac­cord­ingly, al­though the Min­is­ter may not have been per­son­ally cul­pa­ble, the un­for­tu­nate sit­u­a­tion of three se­ri­ous prison breaks or fires in fif­teen months dur­ing the Min­is­ter’s re­mit de­mands that he take ul­ti­mate re­spon­si­bil­ity for this.

The Pres­i­dent and the coali­tion may nev­er­the­less be of the view (and they may be uniquely poised for this) that Min­is­ter Ram­jat­tan can still make a valu­able con­tri­bu­tion in an­other area within the Cab­i­net. Re­cently, there have been state­ments ex­pressed that Pres­i­dent Granger is pop­u­lat­ing the pub­lic sec­tor with re­cently re­tired mil­i­tary per­sons. While I hold no brief for or against such per­cep­tions, it may be for­tu­itous for the Pres­i­dent to ap­point some­one with a mil­i­tary back­ground as his new Min­is­ter of Pub­lic Se­cu­rity. Such a per­son would likely bring a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence to the po­si­tion, as well as bol­ster pub­lic con­fi­dence in the ad­min­is­tra­tion of pub­lic se­cu­rity. Two names that im­me­di­ately spring to mind are Bri­gadier Gen­eral (ret’d) Ed­ward Collins, or Ma­jor Gen­eral (ret’d) Joseph G Singh.

Yours faith­fully, Bryn­mor T I Pol­lard, SC
