It will be the first time Simpson Miller will be leading the members of the PNP to the Government side of the aisle after an election. Beverley Anderson- Manley, long- standing member of the PNP, expressed delight that Simpson Miller would make the walk which symbolises she has won her own mandate to lead the Government. “ As somebody who has struggled for the rights of women all my adult life, I am extremely proud at the thought of an elected prime minister walking up Duke Street, leading a team that has a significant amount of women on it,” Anderson- Manley told The Gleaner yesterday The PNP team that Simpson Miller will lead to the House includes four other women – Lisa Hanna, Natalie Neita- Headley, Sharon Ffolkes- Abrahams and Denise Daley. “ All women as of now, when asked the question ‘ what would you like to be when you grow up’, can say with pride, ‘ I would like to be prime minister’. She is the role model, she is the BACK IN SESSION REV STANLEY REDWOOD – PRESIDENT GOVERNMENT SENATORS All but one senator named AT LEAST seven new faces will appear in the Senate, the majority of whom will be on the Government benches. Topping the list of senators to be sworn in today is the Reverend Stanley Redwood, who is to be elected president.
