The Bahamian cabinet has made its final three appointments to round out the country’s new Senate.

Former Senate President Sharon Wilson, former diplomat Joseph Curry and attorney Cheryl Bazard have all been named senators under Article 39(4) of the Constitution.

The three new senators will receive their instruments of appointment in a ceremony Monday at Government House in Nassau, along with the seven other senators whose appointments were announced last Thursday.

Two other senators, Keith Bell and Allyson Maynard Gibson, were already sworn in when they were sworn in as Ministers of Government.

The Opposition Free National Movement’s four senators have also been sworn in.
