Nazim Burke – Finance, Economic Development, Foreign Trade, Energy, Co-operatives
Peter David – Tourism and Foreign Affairs
Michael Lett – Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries
Glynis Roberts – Social Services, Ecclesiastical Affairs and Labour
Alleyne Walker – Housing, Lands, Community Development
Patrick Simmons – Youth Empowerment, Culture & Sports
Karl Hood – Health
James Bristol – Attorney General (Yay! A non-partisan, non-politically affiliated Attorney General)
Sen. Glen Noel – Minister of State in Ministry of Housing, Lands and Community Development
Sen. Arley Gill – Minister of State in Ministry Youth Empowerment, Culture & Sport
Sen. Ann Peters – Minister of State in Ministry of Health
Sen. Franka Bernadine – Minister of Education and Human Resources
Sylvester Quarless – Minister of State in Works, Physical Planning & Development, Environment
Michael Church – Minister of State for Trade, Finance, Economic Planning, Energy, Foreign Trade and Cooperatives
Sen. George Prime – Carriacou & Petite Martinique Affairs

Also offered as NDC senators for the Upper House are Dr Pember Braveboy and Mrs Joan Purcell.

Conspicuously absent from the government line-up are loosing NDC candidates Osborne James, Ingrid Rush and Ingrid Jackson. Speculation is that they may be headed for ambassadorial postings.
