Parliamentary Commissioner appointed

A Parliamentary Commissioner in the person of Doctor Hilda Rosemarie Husbands-Mathurin has been appointed by Governor General, Dame Pearlette Louisy.

Doctor Husbands-Mathurin  took the oath of office this morning before the Speaker of the House of Assembly, Honourable Leonne Theodore-John, in accordance to Section 110(3) of The Constitution.

The ceremony took place in the Members’ Lounge at Parliament Building, Laborie Street, Castries.

Dr. Husbands-Mathurin previously served as both  President of the Senate and Speaker of the House of Assembly respectively.

The Office of Parliament has extended congratulations to her  and wished her the very best in her new appointment.

The office said it looks forward to working with the new Parliamentary Commissioner.

The constitution of Saint Lucia says with regard to the Parliamentary Commissioner’s functions:

“The principal functions of the Parliamentary Commissioner shall be to investigate any decision or recommendation made including any advice give or recommendation made to a Minister, or any act done or omitted by any department of government or any other authority to which this section applies, or by officers or member of such a department or authority, being action taken in exercise of the administrative functions of that department or authority.”

  1. I met Mrs. Mathurin a few years ago while changing planes at O’Hare. Since then, my wife and I have enjoyed her company on a variety of occasions. I am politically active on many levels at home (Canada). I have found her to be knowledgeable of many topics and well capable to discuss items of mutual interest and offer insight that I may have otherwise missed. She is a delight to know. You have done well to have her in this position.
