The Leader of the Opposition People’s National Party, Dr. Peter Phillips says the Opposition has taken note of the appointment of a new Minister of Science, Energy and Technology by the Prime Minister to oversee the important energy portfolio.
Reacting to the minor cabinet reshuffle today, Dr. Phillips said since the resignation of former Minister, Dr. Andrew Wheatley, he had consistently pointed to the need to appoint a fulltime Minister of Energy, as a Ministry of this scope and importance needed to have its own Minister. 
He said it was unfortunate that after eight months, it took the further deepening of the Petrojam scandal for the Prime Minister to come to the realisation of his inability to provide effective oversight and so appoint a Minister of Science, Energy and Technology. 
Dr. Phillips warned, however, that this appointment would not deter Opposition from getting to the root of the corruption and mismanagement at Petrojam and other agencies in the Ministry, as there are still several issues outstanding.
