In her speech, Ms. Paul articulated a multi-faceted approach to her role as Press Secretary, underlining her commitment to open and honest communication with the media.

A significant part of this commitment involves proactively sharing government information, not solely reacting to inquiries.

The address also highlighted the newly appointed Press Secretary’s intention to harness modern technology and digital channels to expand the government’s reach and accessibility.

This includes interactive social media engagement and data visualization to make complex issues more comprehensible to the public.

In conclusion, Ms. Paul reaffirmed the mission of the Press Secretary’s office: to uphold principles of transparency, accountability, and accessibility, and to work collaboratively with the media to engage citizens and address their concerns effectively.

The appointment of Ms. Melissa Paul as Press Secretary has been met with enthusiasm and anticipation from both government officials and the media.

  1. From DBS to Press Secretary. I’m all for career advancement. But I just can’t help but observe that this government has made a name for itself in scouting all the media talent from private media houses. Soon there will be no private media. Government will collect all the media workers.

  2. Hmmmm.Oddly enough all the media workers who pushed anti government propaganda last elections are all employed by government.
    That’s a hell of a coincidence

  3. Congratulations, your introductory speech was very well spoken, clear, articulate , empowering and precise, I look forward to your future press releases!

  4. Maundy is now a Communications Attache, Rehani is Communications Officer, Ms. Paul here is Press Secretary. Don’t blame you PM, clearly you need all the help you can get. Hope they tell you don’t say “I don’t know” when you’re asked, how much will it cost to complete St. Jude’s”

  5. Every time Pip opens his mouth, ‘stupid fly out’ (much like ti Chas) and everyone realizes he is being controlled by his ventriloquist (Kenny or massa?).

    This event to hire a professional puppet is a smart move (perhaps too late) on his part; a buffer (plausible deniability) between himself and the voters, in preparation for the next game of musical election chairs.
