Communication Minister Donna Cox’s eyes welled up with tears when she visited embattled PNM MP Marlene McDonald yesterday at St Joseph Police station and prayed with McDonald.
Political analysts Ferdie Ferreira and Mariano Browne have both taken a “wait and see” approach to the appointment of Donna Cox as Communications Minister.
Cox, a former Laventille East Member of Parliament, was sworn in Monday morning after Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley revoked the appointment of Stuart Young from the ministry on Sunday night.
Newly sworn-in Communications Minister, Donna Cox says her vision for the Ministry is to bring more transparency to the public as to the goings-on at Government Ministries.
'People complain we spending so much money here and there but they don't have the information,' Minister Cox told members of the Media.
Minister Cox said the Prime Minister called her two months ago with the instruction to get ready to come back to Trinidad and Tobago. Ms Cox was at the time at this country's consulate in New York where she headed public affairs and culture.
