Guyana Chronicle – April 15, 2008

THE Women’s Progressive Organisation (WPO) has welcomed the appointments of Ministers Carolyn Rodrigues-Birkett and Pauline Sukhai with responsibilities for Foreign Affairs and Amerindian Affairs respectively.

The WPO noted: “Minister Rodrigues-Birkett is the first woman to hold the position of Minister of Foreign Affairs in Guyana. We are encouraged by this further act of confidence in women expressed by the government. We also recognise that Minister Sukahi’s appointment increases the percentage of women in Guyana’s Cabinet”

The WPO statement also wished Ministers Rodrigues-Birkett and Sukhai full success in their new areas of responsibility and congratulates the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) government for its continued efforts to increase the participation of women in decision-making at all levels throughout the country.
