The Office of the Principle Permanent Secretary has announced that Christine Schembri has been appointed as Permanent Secretary in the Office of the Cabinet, responsible for Co-ordination and Implementation. Joyce Dimech will be assuming the responsibility of Permanent Secretary within the Ministry for National Heritage, Arts and Local Government.

A statement said that Mrs Schembri has been carrying out her functions as Executive Secretary of the Public Service Commission  since 2014. Mrs Dimech has served as Permanent Secretary (Strategy and Implementation) in the Office of the Prime Minister since 2014, and before that she was the Permanent Secretary at the Ministry for Gozo.

On the other hand, Joseph Camilleri, who has served as a Permanent Secretary since 2013, both at the Ministry for National Heritage, Arts and Local Government as well as at the Ministry for Social Dialogue, Consumer Affairs and Civil Liberties, will now be appointed as the Principle Electoral Commissioner instead of Joseph Church, whose term will be ending in July.

July will be a period of transition for these three officials until they start occupying their new roles by the end of the month.
