The Nunatsiavut Government has a new Minister, and a new Speaker has been appointed to the Nunatsiavut Assembly.
Marlene Winters-Wheeler, an Ordinary Member for Upper Lake Melville, will serve as the Minister of Education and Economic Development. She takes over from Finance, Human Resources and Information Technology Minister Tony Andersen, who served in the position on an interim basis.
With her appointment as Minister, Ms. Winters-Wheeler vacated her seat as Speaker of the Nunatsiavut Assembly. As a result, and based on a recommendation from President Johannes Lampe, the Assembly approved the appointment of an Ordinary Member for Canada, Susan Onalik, as the new Speaker.
