Roland Bhola is back in the senate for a second stint in replacement of former senator Kim Georgein the upper house who resigned in October citing demands of her profession and senate preparation.
Addressing the senate on Tuesday the first day for budget debate, Bhola said his return should be seen as adding values to the debate
Delivering his maiden speech on his return to the Senate having taken his oath of office Tuesday morning, Roland Bhola says his presence in the Senate is hoped to add value by bringing a sense of reasoning to the debate.
Bhola replaced former senator Kim Georgein the Upper House who resigned in October citing demands of her legal profession and senate preparation.
He told the Senate that while his choice was not to return to serving in this capacity he hopes his legacy will be a rich one remembered.
President of the Senate Chester Humphrey in welcoming the return of Bhola said he has distinguished himself in the Senate.
Ahead of the 2018 general election, Bhola announced his decision not to contest the election as caretaker for the St Andrew North East constituency.
Having served four terms as a parliamentarian, Bhola said he wanted to give full attention to the affairs of the New National Party.
As a member of the then Cabinet, Bhola served as minister for various ministries including Youth and Sports, Agriculture, Forestry, Lands and the Environment.
