THE Government has appointed 12 people to man its Caucus Office.
This brings the number of political appointees the government has confirmed so far to 19.
The first seven appointees manning the Prime Minister’s Private Office was announced yesterday.
They include a special secretary to the prime minister, a private secretary, an international relations secretary, a national security liaison, and three media personnel.
More appointees are expected to be confirmed and published in this paper as advertisements in coming days.
The Government says its Caucus Office was established to act as its “eyes” and “ears”.
“The main business of Caucus is to ensure that party cohesion and party solidarity of the DCC Government remains intact.
“Caucus ensures that the spirit of the Coalition Agreement between political parties of the United Democratic Party for Social Reform and Economic Advancement, Kandere Party of Solomon Islands and Peoples Alliance Party is maintained to garner political stability.”
