JLP’s eighth senator sworn in
Attorney-at-law Alexander Williams has been sworn in as the opposition Jamaica Labour Party's eighth member of the upper house.
Mr. Williams took the oath of allegiance at today's sitting of the senate.
Last week Friday, opposition leader Andrew Holness announced that Mr. Williams would be the eighth senator, having advised the governor general of Mr. Williams' appointment.
Mr. Williams has been practicing at the bar for the past 22 years.
He has served on school boards and boards of public bodies, including as chairman of the anti-doping commission, the family planning board, and the water resources authority.
Mr. Williams completes the slate of opposition senators, as the others were sworn in some three months ago.
