The recently appointed Permanent Secretary in the interim Prime Minister’s Office Viliame Naupoto, has a new job.
He will from Monday become the new Permanent Secretary for Fisheries and Forests.
The former navy Commander, replaced Parmesh Chand as Permanent Secretary to the PM, a week before the Constitution was abrogated on April 10. He was first appointed Director of Immigration following the 2006 coup.
It’s not known who will replace him but there is strong indication it may be another military officer.
Naupoto has just returned from Tonga after attending the regional conference on security sector governance, hosted by UNDP Pacific Centre and Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat.
