Beverley Alert is AFC’s pick to replace Trotman in Parliament
Beverley Alert, a member of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the Alliance for Change (AFC) Party has been selected to replace Raphael Trotman in the National Assembly, the Party’s Chairperson Cathy Hughes said.
Hughes, in an invited comment on Friday, said that Alert is expected to be sworn-in at the end of the parliamentary recess in October.
Alert served as the Head of the Government Information Agency (GINA) under the 2015 A Partnership for National Unity+Alliance For Change (APNU+AFC) administration. She later served as the Public Information Coordinator of the National Communications Network (NCN).
Now that she has been chosen by her party, her name will be dispatched to Former President David Granger, who is the Representative of the List of candidates for the coalition.
Trotman, the Former Chairman of the AFC, opted to resign from the National Assembly to allow for “rotation and space for new leadership training”, a recent release from the AFC noted.
Although leaving the National Assembly, Mr Trotman will remain a member of the AFC’s National Executive Council and continue to provide counsel to the leadership of the AFC on a range of national and regional developments.
He will also continue to render his expert counsel on the nascent oil production sector, the party said.
