Health, Wellness and Development Secretary Dr Agatha Carrington has resigned from the Tobago House of Assembly with immediate effect. Carrington’s exit paves way for new PNM leader Tracy Davidson-Celestine to be installed as a Councillor and Secretary.
Carrington recently said she had no qualms about resigning to make way for Davidson-Celestine who quit her post as TT Ambassador to Costa Rica.
There were rumours over the weekend that Carrington had submitted a resignation letter but Newsday was unable to verify. A source on Monday morning told Newsday Carrington confirmed the letter via a WhatsApp group message to the Executive Council.
Carrington’s tenure has not been the smoothest and last year there was a massive online petition calling for her to be removed. Chief Secretary Kelvin Charles, who will also be removed by the end of April after losing the PNM leadership to Davidson-Celestine, had been unmoved despite the mounting of criticism directed at Carrington.
