Minister of Education Not Rated Highly According to a Recent Poll


A recent Nationwide Blue dot poll indicates that the population surveyed ranked the Minister of Health & Wellness as the best performing Minister.
 
On a list of 13 Ministers, Karl Samuda, the Minister of Education, Youth & Information, found himself at No. 10, which was shocking. Karl Samuda has been asked to oversee the Ministry, following the resignation of Ruel Reid.
 
Ruel Reid, the former minister of education who had to resign, was ranked as the second best performing minister when he was in office, based on a poll conducted during that time. In light of the current investigation being conducted following his resignation, there are some who are questioning the accuracy of that poll and there are others who believe that the poll was accurately done. Nevertheless, it was hoped that Karl Samuda would have taken the opportunity to take the No. 1 spot in any future polling; not only has he failed to take the No. 1 spot, he has found himself embarrassingly 3 spots from the bottom in the group of 13 Ministers.
 
It should be noted that Karl Samuda has not been in the job as long as some of the other ministers who were also identified in the Nationwide Blue dot poll and for many, this raised questions about how fair this was for him as well as to what extent is his performance being misrepresented.
