Republican minority chooses its leadership for 34th Legislature


The Democratic Party, meanwhile, has not yet made any announcements for their leadership positions.

Guam – The Republican minority has announced the selection of their leadership going into the 34th Guam Legislature. Meanwhile, the Democratic majority has been caucusing for the last few weeks with no results.

In a release, the Republican minority announced that their minority leader will be four term Senator James Espaldon. Assistant minority leader will be Senator Tommy Morrison while Senator Mary Torres will serve as minority whip.

Incoming freshman Senator Louise Muna will serve at assistant minority whip.

Over at the Democratic party, while it’s not uncommon for caucus to last for several weeks, there’s still no word on whether they’ve even chosen any leadership positions for the majority.

It is anticipated to be a major announcement as the role of speaker is up for grabs now that incumbent Speaker Judi Won Pat was voted out of the 34th Legislature.

Other key positions will be Committee on Rules chairperson which will also be vacated by outgoing Senator Rory Respicio.
