MNI Alive Media can confirm that Honourable David Osborne, following discussions with the Premier of Montserrat, Donaldson Romeo, has agreed to accept the Ministerial appointment to the Ministry of Agriculture, Lands, Housing and the Environment (MALHE).
This Ministry has been without a Minister, following Premier Romeo having advised the Governor of Montserrat that she revoke the Ministerial appointment of Hon Claude Hogan with immediate effect on Friday, September 15th, 2017. (see article on Minister Hogan's firing here)
Hon David Osborne, who sat as a backbencher in the Romeo Administration, was offered the post following Hon Hogan's sacking, but has only today accepted.
He has however not yet been officially sworn in as Minister of MALHE by Her Excellency, The Governor of Montserrat, Elizabeth Carriere.
