Cox to reporters: Don’t call me ‘junior minister’


“Don’t call me junior minister. I’m a Minister of State,” an upset government minister told a Guardian reporter.

Speaking to the reporter during Wednesday night’s National Heritage Preservation Awards Ceremony at the Ballroom of the Crowne Plaza, Wrightson Road in Port-of-Spain, Cox said the title “junior minister,” to which she was being referred, did not exist.

Cox, the MP for Laventille East/Morvant, wants the media to stop referring to her as a junior minister.

“I’m not a junior minister. There is no such thing as a junior minister. The correct title is Minister of State, that’s what I am. So you all must stop calling me that,” she said.

Cox then reached into her purse and pulled out a call-card which read: “The Honourable Donna Cox, MP Minister of State.”

The function which Cox was attending, honoured people dedicated to the preservation of our national treasures.

Cox, who successfully won the Laventille East/Morvant constituency for the ruling People’s National Movement at the November 5 general election, was sworn in as a Minister of State in the Ministry of Community Development, Culture and Genders Affairs at President’s House.

However, she said the print media referred to her as the junior to Marlene McDonald, Minister of Community Development, Culture and Gender Affairs and she was not pleased with that.

I've been browsing on-line more than 3 hours these days, but I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It is beautiful price sufficient for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the internet might be much more helpful than ever before.
