Senate President Danny Montano is acting as President of the Republic of T&T while President George Maxwell Richards is on vacation.

Yesterday, acting Senate President George Hadeed announced in the Senate that Montano was acting for Richards.

This will be the first time that Montano, a former PNM Senator, has acted as President, officials at President’s House confirmed.

They said Richards was on vacation. He will be back in approximately 15 days, they added.

Richards left T&T yesterday.

Montano began his assignment last night with a visit to the Esmeralda, a Chilean training vessel. Tomorrow, Montano will host a reception at President’s House.

Since Hadeed, a Government Senator, is acting for Montano in the Senate, the Government’s numbers are reduced by one in the Upper House.

At yesterday’s Senate session, PNM’s Foster Cummings was sworn in as a temporary Senator to balance the Government’s numbers while Hadeed and Montano handle their new duties. GA
