The Government of Dominica has appointed former Parliamentary Representative for St. Joseph and Foreign Affairs Minister Vince Henderson to the position of Ambassador/Permanent Representative of the Commonwealth of Dominica to the United Nations in New York.
Henderson decided to bow out of the December 18, 2009 election race claiming that his time came to an end. He had indicated however that he would still be involved in the political aspect of things but not directly.
Henderson, according to a press release from the Ministry of Trade, brings to this office invaluable experience, having held several Ministerial portfolios including that of Minister for Foreign Affairs, Immigration and Labour from November 2008 to December 2009.
“The Ambassador designate has also served as Head of Dominica’s delegation to regional and international conferences and has held appointments on the Boards and Committees of various multilateral institutions,” the release said.
Henderson will assume his new position on March 1, 2010.
