Thirty-four year old Keisal Peters, who worked at the Elizabeth Law Chambers, has been appointed senator and Minister of State.
Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves made the announcement while on the state-owned NBC Radio on Wednesday morning.
In an interview with Asberth News Network (ANN), Peters said she was interested in representative politics but when asked if she will be involved as a candidate in the next general elections constitutionally due in 2025, she said it is left to be seen.
Speaking about her appointment as senator and junior minister, Peters said: ”I am very honoured to have been considered and ultimately chosen for the position of Senator and Minister of State.
At various stages in my life I have been called upon to represent my country and many persons can attest to the fact that Peters noted that she has always flown the flag of St. Vincent and the Grenadines “with immense pride.”
Speaking about her expectations, Peters said the most important thing is that she expects to learn.
“As an individual, one can never stop and should never stop learning,” she said.
Peters further stated: “As regards what can be expected of me, I will continue to be a true professional in the execution of my new duties.”
Peters was said to be overseas when the other three senators were presented to the public at a ceremony for swearing in of the new Cabinet at Heritage last week Monday evening.
