Three new cabinet ministers have been sworn into office in Cook Islands today ahead of the announcement of the new government on Monday.
Radio Cook Islands reports that Rose Toki Brown (Independent), Robert Tapaitau (Independent) and George Maggie (One Cook Islands) were sworn in at Government House this afternoon.
The three new Ministers will replace former Cook Islands Party (CIP) ministers, Nandi Glassie, Kiriau Turepu and Teariki Heather who lost their seats in the recent general election.
The three new ministers will join the Cook Islands led government, headed by Prime Minister Henry Puna.
The Queen's Representative Tom Marsters swore in the Ministers at the recommendation of the Prime Minister who has obviously demonstrated that he commands the confidence of the majority of the members of Parliament.
Who gets what portfolios will be determined on Monday, according to Radio Cook Islands.
. In the meantime, Parliament cannot resume until all petitions have been lodged, heard and discharged by the High Court.
