MP chokes on oath
HAMILTON — New minister Leah Scott choked up as she took the oath of office at Government House last night.
Scott – who will serve as minister without portfolio – was hugged by Governor George Fergusson as she composed herself before completing the ceremony.
Fergusson joked: “That’s not normally part of my constitutional duties.”
Scott, newly elected as MP for Southampton East Central, was sworn in with her 11 new cabinet colleagues at Government House. (Bermuda Sun)
