Premier Accepts Percy Paris’s Resignation from Cabinet

Premier Darrell Dexter tonight, May 9, accepted the resignation from Cabinet of African Nova Scotian Affairs and Economic and Rural Development Minister Percy Paris.
 
Mr. Paris offered his resignation from Cabinet following an incident at the House of Assembly in the afternoon.
 
“Mr. Paris offered his resignation this evening and I have accepted it,” said Premier Dexter. “Percy has been a valued member of my team. He has made important contributions to the province. He has been a champion for African Nova Scotians in the Cabinet and caucus. However, Percy must now focus on dealing with the allegations made against him.”
 
Mr. Paris continues to serve as MLA for Waverly-Fall River-Beaverbank.
 
Premier Dexter will announce changes to cabinet on Friday morning.
