Mystery surrounded the shock
resignation on Monday of National Security Minister David Burch.
Burch also quit the Senate where he was government leader. He was
not immediately available for comment. Wayne Perinchief, a former
top policeman, who previously sat on the backbench of the ruling
Progressive Labour Party (PLP), was sworn at Government House as the
new National Security Minister. Former Police Commissioner Jonathan
Smith was sworn in as the new PLP senator replacing Burch, a former
commanding officer of the part-time Bermuda Regiment. Smith will be
Junior Minister of National Security.
