The Deputy Secretary-General to Parliament Jeanette Emberson has replaced Viniana Namosimalua as Acting Secretary-General.

Ms Namosimalua confirmed yesterday that her last day of work was on Tuesday and Mrs Emberson has taken up the acting post.

In a statement, the Constitutional Offices Commission said they have decided to re-advertise the vacancy and have advised the President to appoint Mrs Emberson until a substantive appointment is made.

“Ms Emberson’s acting appointment is effective from 12 January 2021, since Ms Viniana Namosimalua’s appointment as acting Secretary-General to Parliament was not renewed,” the Commission said.

She was badged head girl in 2002 and comes from a family of five girls.

She is the daughter of the late Methodist Church Reverend Rogorogo Terubea. She is a lawyer by profession and worked at the Attorney-General’s Office for three years before her appointment as Deputy SG in February 2015.
