New Bermuda Premier Pledges Social Change

After defeating outgoing premier Alexander Scott last week for the leadership of Bermuda in a party election, Dr Ewart Brown promised on Monday at his swearing-in to improve social services.

Dr Brown, who was and remains also Minister of Transport and Tourism, is 60, married with three children, and represented Bermuda in the 400 and 1400 meter relays at the Commonwealth Games in 1966. He graduated from Howard University with a B.Sc in Chemistry and an MD. He was first elected to the House of Assembly in 1993.

A new ministry for social rehabilitation is being created, which will be run by former Community Affairs and Sports Minister Dale Butler. "That ministry sends a message that no longer will we shy away from the fact that we have social dysfunction in Bermuda." Brown said.

"We can have a so-called prosperous society but if it is eroded from beneath we have nothing to talk about. And so our plan is to address our challenges in a very assertive manner," he added.

Paula Cox, 47, remains finance minister and was elected as deputy leader of the Progressive Labour Party, which has been in power since 2003.
