There is said to be confusion over the purpose of the newly formed Ministry of Gender, Youth and Child Development..

The Prime Minister announced its establishment in her address to the nation Sunday night, adding that Verna St Rose Greaves was the choice of Minister.

But Mr. Mayers says he could not see the relevance of the new ministry.

He said it appeared that even the Prime Minister was unsure of what was happening.

He maintained that his party was left out of the loop in this latest development, and for him that signaled trouble.
