After the botched elections of the 6th October 2017 when a registration mishap yielded more ballot papers in the box than doctors and/or dentists who had turned up to vote, new elections for the five available seats were held today Friday 20th November.
Except for one person, the three doctors and two dentists elected are not new to the Council, having served on at least one occasion before.
Murthy Pillay, Jastin Bibi, Winnie Low Wah and Dereck Samsoodin are the returning ones, while Jacques Filez will be serving for the very first time.
Their elections having now entered into the annals of history, their work is cut out for them.
The minister responsible for health, Jean Paul Adam will appoint six other people to join them on the new SMDC.
