MINISTERIAL ADVISORS

FUNAFUTI, Tuvalu (April 26, 1998 - PACNEWS)---Another political precedent has been set by Tuvalu's new cabinet.

Three representatives of the 10-member government caucus in Parliament have been made special ministerial advisors, assisting the Prime Minister, the Minister of Finance, and the Deputy Prime Minister (also Minister of National Resources, Home Affairs and Rural Development), Radio Tuvalu reports.

This effectively puts the entire government caucus in some form of political office.

The lone government MP without a special portfolio is the former Speaker, Dr. Tomasi Puapua.
