Trinidad Newspaper refers to Mrs Jagan as the late President of Guyana

Jamaican PM arrives tomorrow
Sunday, April 23 2006

JAMAICAN Prime Minister Portia Simpson-Miller will arrive at Piarco International Airport tomorrow evening for a three-day official visit.

Up to late yesterday, Prime Minister Patrick Manning and Minister of Foreign Affairs Knowlson Gift were in a meeting at the PM's Whitehall office to work out Simpson-Miller's itinerary.

Simpson-Miller is Jamaica's first female prime minister, and only the third female Caricom Head of Government, after the late Dame Eugenia Charles who was the prime minister of Dominica and the late Janet Jagan who was president of Guyana. Last week, Manning extended an invitation to Simpson-Miller to pay an official visit to this country at her earliest convenience.

Simpson-Miller made the announcement that she would be visiting Trinidad last Wednesday during a meeting with Caricom secretary-general Edwin Carrington, at Jamaica House. It would be the Simpson Miller's first visit overseas since she was sworn in on March 30.
