Two Government Ministers on Monday took their oath of Office at Government House following a minor reshuffle.
Governor General Sir Frank Kabui administered the oaths at a brief ceremony attended by Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare, senior Cabinet Ministers and officials.
The two Ministers are the South Guadalcanal MP, David Day Pachawho took over as the new Minister for Mines, Energy and Rural Electrification, and North Guadalcanal, Samson Maneka as the new Minister for National Unity, Reconciliation and Peace.
Mr Pacha returned to the Mines, Energy and Rural Electrification portfolio which he held in 2009 under Prime Minister Dr Derek Sikua.
Announcing the reshuffle last week, Prime Minister Sogavare said the changes were necessary to ensure Ministers utilise their expertise in appropriate portfolios.
