The two remaining Senators appointed by Government, Kay McConney and Rawdon Adams, took the Oath of Office this morning before Governor General Dame Sandra Mason during a brief ceremony at Government House.
Senator McConney, who has also been appointed minister of Innovation, Science and Smart Technology, is a former diplomat who served as Barbados’ Consul General in Toronto.
Senator Adams, the son of late Prime Minister Tom Adams, is a finance professional of over 20 years’ experience.
The proceedings were witnessed by Cabinet Secretary Cecile Humphrey, other officials and relatives of the two new Senators.
The swearing in comes on the heels of a recent amendment made to the Constitution to accommodate the fact that they have not been resident here for the past 12 months.
